We recognise that your privacy is important, and we are committed to protecting the Personal Information that we collect from you.
The privacy and security of all participants' information are of paramount importance to us. For this reason, all passwords are encrypted to the same very high standard as your banks; children’s names are given as first name and last initial only, and adult contact details are only shared if permission is given for the purposes of being eligible for prizes and receiving tips and information from our partners.
Early Days will only collect and hold Personal Information about you that is reasonably necessary to undertake our business activities and functions, or as otherwise permitted by law.
