WHO WE ARE
The Production Managers Forum (PMF) is a volunteer run organisation with the aims of sharing
ideas and knowledge within the production management community in the UK and internationally.
At present we have nine people all working professionally within the production management
sphere who help to organise and run the PMF.
We can be contacted via email on firstname.lastname@example.org

HOW WE COLLECT INFORMATION FROM YOU AND WHAT WE COLLECT
We collect information from you when sign up as a member using the form on the PMF Website.
We also can collect data if you fill in the sign in sheet when attending a PMF event or social.
If you are signing up as a member, we collect:
– Your name
– Year of birth
– Job title
– Venue, if you are building based
– Whether you are full time, part time or freelance
– Email address
– Contact number
– Where you heard about the PMF
If you are under 18, please ensure you obtain your parent/guardian’s consent before you provide
personal information to the website. If you don’t have that consent, you must not provide personal
information to us.
WHY WE COLLECT THIS INFORMATION
We collect these details primarily in order to let you know about activity regarding the PMF such
as socials, talks, forums and to distribute our bi-monthly newsletter.
It is also important for us to ascertain percentages of members falling within certain age groups,
gender groups and how many of our members are freelance or building based.
This allows us to tailor our aims and goals to our membership and also create targets, for
example, focusing on gaining more members who are live event and festival production managers
to allow us as an organisation to be as diverse and accessible as possible.
It also allows us to identify trends and gaps within the industry and see how we can support that
through our work, for example, identifying a lack of young female production managers and
creating talks and content to find or engage more people who identify as being part of that
We may also use your details to contact you in the event we think you have something valuable to
add to an upcoming forum or social or debate. For example, if you have identified yourself as
being a freelance festival production manager, and we are organising a forum on how to become
a festival production manager, we may contact you to ask if you would like to participate or have
anything to add to the conversation.
WHO HAS ACCESS TO YOUR DATA AND HOW WE STORE IT
Any personal details that you give us can only be accessed by the small group of people running
We will never pass on or sell your information to any third party organisations.
In the event that we have a request from a member asking to be linked with a production manager
who perhaps has expertise in a certain area, we will always contact you first for permission before
we pass on your details.
All details we receive are stored on a spreadsheet on a Dropbox folder that can only be accessed
by the group running the PMF.

You have the right to ask us to change or stop how we use your personal information at any time.
