PRIVACY POLICY for Kevin Burke's Bear Faced Cheek 

     1. Introduction

 This Privacy Notice explains in detail the types of personal data I may collect  about you when you interact with me. It also explains how I’ll store and handle  that data, and keep it safe. 

2. What is “Bear Faced Cheek”?

 "Bear Faced Cheek" is the company name of professional entertainer Kevin  Burke, a Sole Trader providing entertainment as detailed on this website to  private and corporate clients throughout the United Kingdom. I am not a limited  company. 

      3. Explaining the legal bases I rely on

The law on data protection, based on the General Data Protection Regulation and formerly the Data Protection Act, sets out a number of different reasons for which a company may collect and process your personal data, including:


In specific situations, I can collect and process your data with your consent. This may be when you have enquired about my services perhaps through the contact form on my website, or sent an e-mail enquiry or phoned to ask about my services.

Contractual obligations

In certain circumstances, I need your personal data to comply with my contractual obligations. If you have booked me to provide a performance or entertainment services then I will need your contact details for example! 

Legitimate interest

In specific situations, I require your data to pursue my legitimate interests in a way which might reasonably be expected as part of running my business and which does not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests. For example if I have worked for you before and wish to book me again, I may use the contact details that I already hold about you to fill in thge necessary booking paperwork. You will always have the option of letting me know that you no longer wish me to hold your details, and I will remove you from my contacts list. 

     4. When do I collect personal data?

     5. What sort of personal data do I collect?

     6. How and why do I use your personal data?

If you wish to change how I use your data, you’ll find details in the ‘What are my rights?’ section below.

Remember, if you choose not to share your personal data with me, or refuse certain contact permissions, I might not be able to provide some services you’ve asked for.

Here’s how I’ll use your personal data and why:

Please note that I will NEVER send out an unsolicited mail shot or any other form of direct marketing, other than posting information on social media.

     7. How I protect your personal data

I know how much data security matters to all my clients. With this in mind I will treat your data with the utmost care and take all appropriate steps to protect it. My computers and mobile devices are all password protected. Hard copies of contracts and invoices are held in secure storage and shredded after 7 years (see 8 below).

I regularly monitor my systems for possible vulnerabilities and constantly review my security. 

     8. How long will I keep your personal data?

Your email address and contact numbers are held within my email contacts list, which is maintained on an ongoing basis. Please note that you are free to request that you be removed from this list at any time.

Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) requires us to keep records of contracts, payments and invoices for 7 years. I will therefore normally hold information of any contracts for this long. 

     9. Who do I share your personal data with?

No-one!  I am a self-employed entertainer. If you hire me, it is either done through an agent who you will have dealt with (who will then pass your details on to me), or it is myself that requires such information. It is not in my interest to pass on your contact details to any other party. 

     10. Where your personal data may be processed

Unless I inform you otherwise your data will not be processed outside the UK. 

     11. What are your rights over personal data?

You have the right to request:

 Access to the personal data I hold about you, free of charge in most cases.
The correction of your personal data when incorrect, out of date or incomplete.
• The right to deletion, for example when you withdraw consent, or object and I have no legitimate overriding interest, or once the purpose for which I hold the data has come to an end (such as the end of a warranty).
• That I stop using your personal data for direct marketing (either through specific channels, or all channels).
• That I stop any consent-based processing of your personal data after you withdraw that consent.

You have the right to request a copy of any information about you that I hold at any time, and also to have that information corrected if it is inaccurate. To ask for your information, please contact me by e-mail (preferred option so I have written confirmation) to  – if this is not possible, then please phone me on 07971 250222.

If I decide not to action your request I will explain to you the reasons for my refusal. 

Your right to withdraw consent

Whenever you have given me your consent to use your personal data, you have the right to change your mind at any time and withdraw that consent.

Where I rely on my legitimate interest

In cases where I am processing your personal data on the basis of my legitimate interest, you can ask me to stop for reasons connected to your individual situation. I must then do so unless I believe I have a legitimate overriding reason to continue processing your personal data. 

Direct marketing

You have the right to stop the use of your personal data for direct marketing activity through all channels, or selected channels. I must always comply with your request. 

     12. How can you stop the use of your data for direct marketing

You can stop direct marketing communications from me by contacting me by telephone (07971 250222), email (, post or via social media.  E-mail is the preferred method so that I have a written record of your request. 

     13. Contacting the Regulator

     14. If you live outside the UK

I currently do not offer my services to anyone outside the United Kingdom, but the following paragraph would come into force if this situation should ever change:

By using my services or providing your personal data to me, you expressly consent to the processing of your personal data by me. Of course, you still have the right to ask us not to process your data in certain ways, and if you do so, I will respect your wishes. Sometimes I’ll need to transfer your personal data between countries to enable us to supply the goods or services you’ve requested. In the ordinary course of business, I may transfer your personal data from your country of residence to ourselves and to third parties located in the UK. By dealing with us, you are giving your consent to this overseas use, transfer and disclosure of your personal data outside your country of residence for our ordinary business purposes. This may occur because our information technology storage facilities and servers are located outside your country of residence, and could include storage of your personal data on servers in the UK. I’ll ensure that reasonable steps are taken to prevent third parties outside your country of residence using your personal data in any way that’s not set out in this Privacy Notice. I’ll also make sure I adequately protect the confidentiality and privacy of your personal data. 

     15. Any Questions?

I hope this Privacy Notice has been helpful in setting out the way I handle your personal data and your rights to control it.

If you have any questions that haven’t been covered, please contact me on 07971 250222 or by e-mail:
