    Rushen Parish Commissioners’ Privacy Policy

    The Clerk to Rushen Parish Commissioners is the data controller for any personal data you provide. The information you provide will only be used to respond to your query or deal with your complaint and will be retained in accordance with our retention policy.

    Personal information
    In order to use many of our services or ask for our assistance, you will be required to submit some personal information, such as your name, your address, your postcode, email address or phone number.

    We have a legal duty to ensure that our processes are fair and that we keep your personal data safe and secure, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2002. We do not share your personal information with anybody else without your knowledge unless we are required by law to do so.

    We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as it is needed for the service you have requested and remove it in the event that the purpose has been met.

    Disclosure of personal information
    In many circumstances we will not disclose personal data without consent. However, when we undertake certain work to improve the Parish, for example, we may need to share personal information with our contractors and with other relevant public authorities.

    Access to personal information
    The Rushen Parish Commissioners try to be as open as possible in giving people access to their personal information. Individuals can find out if we hold any personal information by making a ‘subject access request’ under the Data Protection Act. If we do hold information about you, we will:

    • give you a description of it;
    • tell you why we are holding it;
    • tell you who it could be disclosed to; and
    • let you have a copy of the information in an intelligible form.

    To make a request you need to put the request in writing to the Clerk, Rushen Parish Commissioners, Lamode, Ballakillowey Road, Rushen IM9 4BP.

    If you agree, we will try to deal with your request informally, for example by providing you with the specific information you need over the telephone. If we do hold information about you, you can ask us to correct any mistakes by, once again, contacting us.

    Complaints or queries
    Rushen Parish Commissioners aim to meet the highest standards when collecting and using personal information. For this reason, we take any complaints we receive about this very seriously. We encourage people to bring it to our attention if they think that our collection or use of information is unfair, misleading or inappropriate. We would also welcome any suggestions for improving our procedures.

    This privacy notice was drafted with brevity and clarity in mind. It does not provide exhaustive detail of all aspects of the Commissioners’ collection and use of personal information. However, we are happy to provide any additional information or explanation needed. Any requests for this should be sent to the Clerk, Rushen Parish Commissioners, Lamode, Ballakillowey Road, Rushen IM9 4BP.
