Who is behind the UK Live Music Census?
What personal information do we collect from you?
How will we use the personal information about you?
We are collecting information about your location in order to:
- monitor the geographical spread of awareness about the UK Live Music Census;
- depending on your location, to contact you via email to see if you may wish to volunteer to collect data at venues in our snapshot cities on 9 and 10 March 2017 (Glasgow, Newcastle, Oxford, Birmingham, Leeds, Southampton, and [TO BE CONFIRMED] Brighton, Bristol, Manchester, and St Albans/South Herts or such other snapshot cities we may include in the scope of the census from time to time).
If you are located in or near one of the UK Live Music Census snapshot cities then we will contact you via email in January-February 2017 to give you further information about volunteering and about details of training sessions in your area.
If you wish to take part in the snapshot city census, you agree for this information to be shared with your local UK Live Music Census Co-ordinator in order for them to contact you only for the purposes of the UK Live Music Census. We have UK Live Music Census Co-ordinators in Brighton: BIMM (British and Irish Modern Music Institute); Glasgow: University of Glasgow; Leeds: Leeds Beckett University; Newcastle: Newcastle University; Southampton: Southampton Solent University.
Who might we share personal information with?

No personal information will be provided to the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
We will also share your personal information with dotmailer, who will store your personal information on behalf of the University of Edinburgh (see section ‘Where will personal information be stored?’ below for more information).
