  • Through hard-copy evaluation forms at our events

  • Through online evaluation forms, via Survey Monkey

We collect data for two purposes:

  • To keep audiences informed about Kill the Beast news

  • We do not pass on your data to third parties in any circumstances

  • You have the right to have your data removed from our records at any time without explanation.

  • You have the right to request the data we store on you at any time without cost or explanation.

  • Any storage of data is kept in password protected systems.




  • Our online newsletter is powered by MailChimp
  • We collect your first name, last name and email address so that we can send you our newsletter.
  • You must register yourself to this newsletter and give the necessary permissions.
