Becoming a Creative Edinburgh member

When you sign up for a Creative Edinburgh membership (including Online, Individual, Student, Team Player and Leader memberships), we collect some personal information from you, including but not limited to your name; email address; payment details; postal address; and date of birth.

By becoming a Creative Edinburgh member and agreeing to our Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy, you are giving us permission to contact you via email. We will only contact you with Creative Edinburgh news and updates, which may include details on events, opportunities, jobs, calls to participate courses and feedback.

Attending Creative Edinburgh events

To attend our events, we collect an email address and a name from you. There is often photography and filming at Creative Edinburgh events. When that is the case, your invite will ask you to give us permission to be photographed and filmed. If you do not give us this permission, we cannot guarantee you will be able to attend the event.

We may also upload event photography and videos to our social media channels via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin, YouTube and Vimeo.

If your likeness is captured, it may be used for marketing purposes solely related to Creative Edinburgh.
