Privacy Policy

Find out more how we keep your data safe

The Petts Wood District and Residents' Association is run by volunteers. We are however still committed to maintaining the privacy and security of your personal data.

Your District & Residents' Association will never sell your data to 3rd parties, or use your data for purposes not in-line with the original intentions for which it was obtained.

 

This Privacy Notice explains how we collect, use, share and protect your personal data.

This Privacy Notice is provided in a layered format so you can click through to the specific areas set out below. 

Who We Are

The Petts Wood and District Residents' Association is a "data controller". This means that we are responsible for deciding how we hold and use personal information about you. Where we act as a data controller, we are required under data protection legislation to notify anyone who provides personal data to us, either directly or through a third party, of the information contained in this Privacy Notice.

What is personal data

Any information about an individual from which that individual can be identified. Your name, address and phone number are examples of personal data. Personal data does not include data where the identity has been removed (in other words anonymous data). 

Our Storage and Retention of your Personal Data

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for. This includes for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes whilst you are associated with the Petts Wood District and Residents' Association.

When and how we share your personal data with others

We may share your personal data with third parties where required by law, where it is necessary to perform our contract with you or where we have a legitimate interest in doing so. Such third parties may include the following:

Our service providers: We may share your personal data with other companies that perform certain services on our behalf. These services may include processing payments and supporting our website and IT functionality. These service providers may be supplied with or have access to your personal data solely for the purpose of providing these services to us or on our behalf. The PWDRA is the data controller and will remain accountable for your personal data.

Regulators: We may need to share your personal data if required by a regulator or to otherwise comply with law.

Others: We may share your personal information with other third parties such as in the context of the possible performance of our role as the PWDRA.

Your rights as a data subject

Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:

  • Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it. Request correction of the personal that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.

  • Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).

  • Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.

  • Request the restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal data about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it. Request the transfer of your personal data to another party.

  • If you want to review, verify, correct or request erasure of your personal data, object to the processing of your personal data, or request that we transfer a copy of your personal information to another party, please contact us using the contact details in this Privacy Notice.

 

No fee usually required

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.

 

What we may need from you

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.

 

Your right to withdraw consent

In circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal data for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. To withdraw your consent, please contact us using the contact details in this Privacy Notice. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law.
