Wellington Heath Website Privacy Statement (May 2018)

 The new European Union General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) come into Force in May 2018.

 GDPR is designed to give individuals better control over their personal data and establish one single set of data protection rules across Europe.

 Personal data is defined as any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.This includes online identifiers, such as IP addresses and cookies if they are capable of being linked back to the data subject. This also includes indirect information, which might include physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identities that can be traced back to a specific individual.

The Wellington Heath Village website: https://sites.google.com/site/wellingtonheath/home is run by a web team of volunteers within the community, for their community.  These volunteers understand the importance of personal privacy, and as data controllers, they are aware of their obligations when processing personal data and will do so diligently and to the best of their ability. If you have any kind of privacy query about the website content, then please contact the web team via the contact details below. 

This website contains the names and/or contact details of several categories of people as follows:

  •        Members of the Wellington Heath Parish Council or other political offices.
  •        Members of the Wellington Heath Memorial Hall Management Committee.
  •        People associated with the running of Christ Church.
  •     People associated with the development of the Parish Plans and the Neighbourhood Development Plan.
  •        People who organize various clubs and activities in the Parish.
  •        The owners of some businesses who live in the Parish.
  •        People displaying their art and/or craft creations.

Currently data held includes, but may not be limited to, the following:

  •       Name
  •       Telephone number(s)
  •        Private and /or business email address.
  •        Private address and/or business address

Since all these individuals have either volunteered to act in some public capacity, or volunteered to display their art/craft creations, or have requested their business to be advertised, it is assumed that permission to display contact details on the site has been freely given.  Anyone wishing to withdraw permission to display their contact details or wishing to modify which personal details are displayed should contact one of the web team (details given below).

 The site also contains many archive photos/slideshows of past events in the Parish. In order to comply with the GDPR these photos are not annotated with any personal information. However in some cases the photos contain textual information giving the names of some individuals. For example one exception relates to historic information about the declaration of Independence by Monkey Island in 1989 (see https://sites.google.com/site/wellingtonheath/home/monkey-island) where copies of newspaper articles identify specific individuals.  Consequently Individuals are advised to review all the archive photos and to contact the web team if they wish to have photos containing their image removed.
