ICKWELL MAY DAY PRIVACY NOTICE

 

We at Ickwell May Day want to make sure all the personal details we hold about you are safe and secure, so we have put together this note to tell you how we make sure we do that and what to do in case you have any questions for us, or want to see what information we have. We are, what is known as, a data controller. This means we have control over how your details are used and who we pass them to.

Sometime organisations like ours need to appoint an individual called a “Data Protection Officer” to make sure that we are being very careful with your information. We don’t need to have Data Protection Officer, but we have decided to put together a team of people instead to make sure your details are safe. With regard to Ickwell May Day, these people are Jon Payne and Lorraine Wood.

If you have told us we can use your information in a certain way, you can tell us to stop using it at any time, by contacting Lorraine Wood (woodswords1@btinternet.com)

7.HOW LONG DO WE KEEP PERSONAL INFORMATION FOR?

We collect personal details from you for different reasons and so we might keep it for different lengths of time.
