GDPR reaches Garvald…
Yes, the tendrils of GDPR and the new data protection laws are far-reaching, affecting even tiny groups such as the village website and the horticultural society. But we are on the case!
If you are happy to continue receiving email updates from the village website, then just have a read of the information below – no action required! Please note that you can unsubscribe from the mailing list at any time, by clicking the unsubscribe link at the end of the email or by contacting us.
Website Privacy Notice
To run the village website we operate a latest news mailing list (using MailChimp) and deal with email enquiries sent via the contact form – so we are mostly dealing with your email addresses.
We have delved into the details of our data collection and have found:
- We know what personal information we hold and why we hold it.
- We only hold and use what we data need to do the job (such as provide village news and announcements).
- We keep your personal information up to date (or you can easily update your mailing list subscription yourself).
- We keep your personal information secure and confidential.
- We will deal with a data breach within 72 hours, informing you and the Information Commissioners Office where necessary, i.e. in cases which might expose you to serious risk.
- We make it easy for you to withdraw your personal information (you can unsubscribe at any time from our mailing list).
Our Website Privacy Notice is on the About/Privacy page if you want to read more.
