TILLY & YOUR DATA
We have a fully compliant GDPR data policy. Basically we keep as little data as possible and here's how we use it and how you can change the data we hold about you.
We need your permission to stay in touch.
New data protection laws mean we need your permission to stay in touch. Without this permission, you may get left out of our offers and news.
If you've been a follower of Tillys Garden Party Hire for sometime you'll already know we don't email people willy nilly. We normally only send emails about the current transaction and our follow up. We're not big in to email marketing. That's just us.
However, we may want to tell you about new things we do, or perhaps offer you a thank you for your introduction to a new client or maybe just to tell you we've moved, bought a new venue or had a baby. To be honest, some of those are a little unlikely, but nonetheless, we need your permission to stay in touch.
The easiest way is to put your email address in this box and tick the box below to stay on our super infrequent mailing list. If you'd like to come off at anytime, you can do so by popping to the botom of this page and completing the form, or just following the forget me link on each email.
