What personal data do we keep, and why?
We keep very little personal data. What we do keep is for two purposes: to enable the administration and organisation of the Association, and to publicise our activities. We do not hold any personal data which the GDPR would class as "sensitive", and we do not hold any personal financial information (e.g. bank account or credit card details). What data we do hold, and how we use it, is described in the following:
The Email Mailing List
One of the new provisions of the GDPR is that anyone on our email mailing list must give their consent to receive emails, and we must keep a record of that consent.
We will never sell or pass on your email address to anyone else. We will never send or forward emails from other organisations to you via this mailing list.
The GDPR gives you the "right to be forgotten". If you unsubscribe from the Association, then your email address will be deleted, If we ever stop running the mailing list, then all data will be deleted.
The Cramond Association is committed to the online privacy of all its users. This policy statement is designed to give a clear explanation of our data processing practices.
We will not collect any information about individuals, except where it is specifically and knowingly provided by them. Examples of such information are:
- Your name
- Your address
- Your contact details
The information collected will be used to send you the information you have requested and to provide information that may be useful to you.
