Who we are
Common Ground is responsible for your data. We are the data controller of the data we collect from you. We are responsible for the ways in which your personal data are collected and for what purposes your personal data are used.
What we collect
We only collect information from you that is necessary to provide a service or to respond to your enquiries. This includes:
- Telephone number
- Email address
How we use your data
We only use your personal data in relation to the core business services we provide to you. We can only use your data for one of the following reasons:
- When you consent to us using your personal data
- To provide a service for which we have a contract with you
- To provide information to enable us to do legitimate business
How to manage what we send to you
We will either contact you directly relating only to services that we are providing or you have enquired about OR to send occasional marketing emails relating only to our core business activities.
Each marketing email will include a link by which you can immediately unsubscribe from receiving any future marketing communications.
How long we keep your data
We will retain your personal data only for as long as is deemed necessary to provide legitimate services to you.
How we protect your data
Using methods such as encryption and password protection, we protect your personal data against unlawful use and unauthorised access. The number of people who have access to your data is strictly limited by their role in the organisation.
The methods by which we secure your data will use current best practice and will be reviewed regularly to ensure they are kept up-to-date.
Sharing your data
Your personal data will not be shared outside the organisation under any circumstances. The only exception is if we are required to do so to comply with law enforcement demands.
You are entitled to see copies of all personal data held by us and to amend, correct or delete such data.
You can withdraw consent at any time (for example, in order to stop marketing emails). Information about how to stop receiving marketing communications is detailed above under the heading ‘How to manage what we send to you’. If you withdraw your consent, we can still rely on the consent you gave as the lawful basis for processing your data before you withdrew your consent.
If you wish to complain about our use of your personal data please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or write to us at 20 Shaw’s Road, Altrincham, WA14 1QU.
You are entitled to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office (the body responsible for the protection of personal data in the UK).
