Privacy Information

This is Holt Village Hall Privacy Notice.
As part of the services we offer, we are required to process personal data about our members, volunteers and service users. “Processing” can mean collecting, recording, organising, storing, sharing or destroying data. We are committed to providing transparent information on why we need your personal data and what we do with it. This information is set out in this privacy notice. It will also explain your rights when it comes to your data.

Data Controller

Holt Village Hall (referred to as “we”, “us”, “our”, or HVH) is “the data controller” of all information that is collected and used about our service users, staff, volunteers or members. HVH is the “data processor” of all the information that is collected and used about services users.  HVH is a registered charity and operates the

What personal data do we collect?
Personal data means any information relating to you which allows us to identify you.
We collect and maintain information about you when you use our services so that we can provide a safe and professional service. We may record the following types of data about you:
 Your basic details and contact information e.g. your name, address, email, telephone number.

We also record the following data which is classified as “special category” if this is necessary for the provision of our services:
 Health and social care data about you, which might include both your physical and mental health data.
 We may also record data about your race, ethnic origin, gender, sexual orientation or religion.

Why do we have this data?

We will only process your personal data where we have a legal basis to do so. The legal basis will depend on the reasons we have collected and need to use your personal data.

We may also process your data with your consent. If we need to ask for your permission, we will offer you a clear choice and ask that you confirm to us that you consent. We will also explain clearly to you what we need the data for and how you can withdraw your consent.

We may also process your personal data for one or more of the following reasons:
 To comply with a legal obligation;
 You have consented to us using your personal data (e.g. for marketing related uses);
 To protect your vital interests or those of another person (e.g. in case of a medical emergency);
 It is in our legitimate interests in operating as a charity (e.g. for administrative purposes).

We do not primarily rely on consent as a legal basis for processing personal data but where we do need to use consent only children aged 16 or over can provide their own consent. For children under this age, consent of the children’s parents or legal guardians is required. As a matter of good practice, if we are relying upon parental consent we will ensure the child is aware of the rights they have over their personal data in a language they will understand. We will not retain your data for longer than is necessary to fulfil the purpose it is being processed for. To determine the appropriate retention period, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the purposes for which we process it and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means. We must also consider periods for which we might need to retain personal data in order to meet our legal obligations (e.g. in relation to our service contracts with any funding authorities or to deal with complaints, queries and to protect our legal rights in the event of a claim being made. When we no longer need your personal data, we will securely delete or destroy it. We will also consider if and how we can minimise over time the personal data that we use, and if we can anonymise your personal data so that it can no longer be associated with you or identify you, in which case we may use that information without further notice to you.

We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect
