Data Protection Statement

Be in control of your data – The Leconfield Singers

Why do we need your data?

We need to collect and store some of your details, for example your name and email address, so that we can let you know about things like rehearsal and event dates, subscription payments, and social events.

What data do we collect from members?

We collect some of the following types of data from members (we don’t collect all of this data on all members – we only collect it if it is needed):

  • Name
  • Email address
  • Home address
  • Phone numbers
  • Emergency contact details
  • Photos/video footage
  • Subscription payments
  • Gift Aid declarations
  • Bank details
  • Date of Birth

We check the data held on members every two years and remove it if we no longer need it. If you leave the choir, we’ll make sure we stop using and/or delete any data we don’t need to keep (e.g. for financial reporting).

What do we use it for?

Any of the information listed above might be needed to manage your membership with The Leconfield Singers and to organise and run our activities. We won’t ever use this data for anything else unless you give us your active consent for that additional use.

If you give us your consent, The Leconfield Singers will add your email to our mailing list for the group’s marketing/promotional communications. We will always include opt-out options on all such communications.  You can withdraw your consent at any point by contacting the Data Protection Officer.

Do we share your data with anyone else?

  • We will never give your data to third parties for that third party to use.
  • We will sometimes use third party services (e.g. Google Drive) to store or process your data. We will always ensure that they are reputable and have a robust security policy, and that your data is kept safe.
  • If another member of The Leconfield Singers asks for your contact details we will only ever share them with your consent

What can you ask us to do?

At any time you can ask to view, update or correct any data we hold on you. You can also ask that we stop using your data or that we erase it. To request any of these, please contact our Data Protection Officer who will endeavour to respond to you well within the legal requirement of 1 month.

I’ve got a question– who should I speak to?

The best person to speak to is the Data Protection Officer – Archie Kostenko
