Emmer Green Residents Association
is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy, and your information
will be held and handled by us according to this Policy.
All personal data held in the UK by Emmer Green Residents Association
will be governed by the UK Data Protection Act 1998 until 25th May 2018,
when this will be replaced by the EU General Data Protection Regulation
For the General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR"), we are
the data controller in respect of information collected on our website.
Complying with the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
GDPR comes into effect on 25th May 2018 and changes UK data privacy law
to give you more control over how your data is used, how you're contacted,
as well as better protection for your personal data.
We have updated our Privacy Notice to reflect these changes (effective
from 25 May 2018).
We won't be changing the way we use your personal
information, but the new notice now provides you with additional details
Your increased rights in relation to the information we hold about you
How we keep your personal information secure
The types of personal information we collect about you and how we use
The legal grounds for how we use your information
We'll now ask you how you would like to be contacted and as Emmer Green
Residents Association customer, you'll choose how you would like to receive
updates from us on:
There are no additional changes to our terms and conditions
5 things you need to know about GDPR
1. Technological advances have meant the amount of personal data being
generated is rapidly increasing, which is why the law needed to be updated
to better protect people. All companies now must review how they manage
all personal data.
2. It will give you more control over your personal data and how it is
used. You'll have greater visibility and control over the personal data
organisations hold about you. This means you can have greater confidence
that information about you is accurate, up-to date and properly managed.
3. You can choose who contacts you, and how - organisations now need
to ask for your consent so they can contact you about offers, products
or services they think you'll find useful or interesting. To comply with
GDPR, these requests need to be clear and straightforward.
4. You can also change your mind at any time - under the new rules, it
should be easier to update your preferences on what you want to receive
5. Your data will be better protected - organisations holding personal
data now need to have the right processes in place to protect it and
not put it at risk or face hefty fines.
