Data Privacy Policy

The Gawthorpe Maypole Committee

Your personal data – what is it?

Personal data relates to a living individual who can be identified from that data. Identification
can be by the information alone or in conjunction with any other information in the data
controller’s possession or likely to come into such possession. The processing of personal data
is governed by the General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”).

Who are we?

The Gawthorpe Maypole Committee is the data controller (contact details below). This means
it decides how your personal data is processed and for what purposes.

How do we process your personal data?

The Gawthorpe Maypole Committee complies with its obligations under the “GDPR” by keeping
personal data up to date; by storing and destroying it securely; by not collecting or retaining
excessive amounts of data; by protecting personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access
and disclosure and by ensuring that appropriate technical measures are in place to protect
personal data.

We use your personal data for the following purposes: –

  • To enable us to provide a voluntary service for the benefit of the public in a particular
    geographical area as specified in our constitution;
  • To administer entrant/participants records;
  • To fundraise and promote the interests of the charity;
  • To manage our employees and volunteers;
  • To maintain our own accounts and records (including the processing of gift aid applications);
  • To inform you of news, events, activities and services running at Gawthorpe and Ossett.

What is the legal basis for processing your personal data?

  • Explicit consent of the data subject so that we can keep you informed about news, events,
    and activities and process your gift aid donations and keep you informed about our events.
  • Processing is necessary for carrying out obligations under employment, social security or
    social protection law, or a collective agreement;
  • Processing is carried out by a not-for-profit body with a political, philosophical, religious or
    trade union aim provided: –
    • the processing relates only to members or former members (or those who have
      regular contact with it in connection with those purposes); and
    • there is no disclosure to a third party without consent.

Sharing your personal data

Your personal data will be treated as strictly confidential and will only be shared with other
members of the Gawthorpe Maypole Committee in order to carry out community events for
purposes connected with the Committee. We will only share your data with third parties
outside of Gawthorpe and Ossett with your consent.

How long do we keep your personal data?

We do not intend to process and store personal data longer than it is necessary for the
fulfilment of the intended purposes. If the retention of the data is no longer required for the
fulfilment of a contractual or legal obligation, they will be deleted unless we establish a
legitimate interest to further retain the personal data (e.g., defend any arising legal claims)
Specifically, we retain entrant/participant data while it is still current; gift aid declarations and
associated paperwork for up to 6 years after the calendar year to which they relate.

    Committee holds about you;

    personal data and where possible, to transmit that data directly to another data

    contract with the data subject and in either case the data controller processes the data
    by automated means].
  • The right, where there is a dispute in relation to the accuracy or processing of your
    personal data, to request a restriction is placed on further processing;
