Our legal basis for processing your personal data

Whilst we always want you to be aware of how we are using your personal data, this does not necessarily mean that we are required to ask for your consent before we can use it. In the day to day running of Poynton Workmen's Club we may use your personal data without asking for your consent because:

  • we are entering a contract and carrying out our obligations under a contract with you.
  • we need to use your personal data for our own legitimate purposes (such as the administration and management of Poynton Workmen's Club and the improvement of our services) and our doing so does not interfere with your privacy rights.

When we need your consent to use your personal data

If we have obtained your consent and where we have identified that consent is the most appropriate lawful basis for processing, we make the request for consent prominent and separate from our terms and conditions and ask you to positively opt in. We don't use pre-ticked boxes or any other type of default consent and we specify why we want the data and what we're going to do with it and where possible will give separate distinct options to consent separately to different purposes and types of processing.

In exceptional circumstances, we may wish to use your personal data for a different purpose which requires your consent. If this situation applies we will get in contact with you to explain how we wish to use your data and to ask for your consent. Where we obtain your consent to process your personal data we record this consent under Poynton Workmen's Club administration procedures.

You are not required to give consent just because we ask for it. If you do give consent you can change your mind and withdraw it at a later date by contacting the Club Secretary at any time without detriment to you.

With whom we share your personal data

We may share your data with the following people in the day to day running of our business;

  • Any business partners, suppliers and sub-contractors we work with to provide you with information or services that you have requested from us.
  • Where we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of our staff and customers, ourselves or others.
  • Organisations and Society's that Poynton Workmen's Club are affiliated to.

How long we keep your personal data

Your personal data will only be held for as long as we actually need it. Once this has elapsed all data will be destroyed securely in line with Poynton Workmen's Club procedures. Please note that we may hold anonymous personal data or use it for statistical purposes. We keep anonymous and statistical data indefinitely but we take care to ensure that such data can no longer identify or be connected to any individual.
