Yiddish Café Trust Data Policy 8th November 2022

The Yiddish Café Trust is a UK Charity, which currently organises and runs the Yiddish Open Mic Café, and the Yiddish Sof-Vokh UK. This policy sets out how we collect, process and hold your personal data.

Personal data we collect

We collect personal data when you buy a ticket for the Sof-Vokh or other events we run in order to manage the process and communicate with you. We may also collect personal data that you give to us about other people if you register them to attend an event.

You will only receive marketing information from us if you are on a Yiddish Café Trust, Yiddish Open Mic Cafe or Yiddish Sof-Vokh UK mailing list, or have requested to go on a mailing list, or previously bought tickets.

When you contact us by email or post, we may keep a record of the correspondence and we may also record any telephone call we have with you.

Lawful processing of your personal data

We will use your personal data in order to comply with our contractual obligation to supply to you your tickets to an event, including to contact you with any information relating to the event and to deal with any questions, comments or complaints you have. We only share data where we necessarily work with third parties to operate our processes – for example Ticket Tailor and PayPal.

Personal financial information will not be retained by the organisation beyond 6 months following the event except (a) insofar as it is retained within banking processes, and (b) where required for Gift Aid purposes.

Marketing Communications

If you opt in to receive marketing communications from us, you consent to the processing of your data to send you such communications. You can choose to no longer receive marketing communications by contacting us at svcomms@yiddishcafe.com or clicking unsubscribe from a marketing email. We shall keep your details until you inform us that you no longer wish to receive marketing emails from us.


We shall process your personal data in a manner that endeavours to ensure appropriate security of the data.

Your rights

You have the right to obtain from us a copy of the personal data that we hold for you, and to require us to correct errors in the personal data if it is inaccurate or incomplete. You also have the right at any time to require that we delete your personal data. To exercise these rights please contact us at svcomms@yiddishcafe.com.
