Information Policy

Data are held for the purposes of Village History. Some of this is “Members Only”. If you feel that the Group may be holding personal information which may breach your rights then please contact us using the email link on the front page and we will do our best to deal with your request including taking reasonable steps to delete any relevant data.

For members, the Group holds an email address, address and telephone number from the completed consent form for each of its members. These are used solely for the purpose of Waldringfield History Group activities and never passed to third parties without consent.

Unless requested all data will be held in perpetuity as may be relevant to future local historians.

Any material, documents or photographs made available to the History Group will be assumed to be re-usable in publications and presentations unless we are requested to restrict use. We will, of course, take all reasonable steps not to infringe copyright or cause any offence.

As far as we know,  all website data is held on a U.K. based server. Some data are held in Google Drive and in email systems which may be located in more than one country.

It is not considered necessary to have a Data Protection Officer.
