General Data Protection Regulation  In May 2018, new data protection legislation becomes/became effective. It is called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It is effective throughout Europe and despite BREXIT will continue to be law after we leave the EU.  Amongst the many changes and tightening up of current data protection law is the need to inform individuals of what personal data we collect, who keeps it, when it is destroyed and how you can access what data we hold about you should you request it. 1. What data do we collect? Your full name, your postal address, your telephone/mobile number, your email address, and in some very few cases it is possible to determine from the data if you are in receipt of government allowances. We need this information to effectively manage the Association. 2. Who keeps this information? The HwDAA Treasurer keeps all the above information. The HwDAA Plot Secretary keeps all the information which was on your Tenancy Agreement. 3. When will this data be destroyed? When you leave the Association, your personal information will be destroyed after 1 year.  4. How can you find out what information we hold about you? You can simply email the Treasurer and we will inform you. Handling email addresses. The email address we hold for you will not be used for any purpose other than HwDAA business.  We will not release email addresses to third parties or to other tenants without your permission. If tenants wish to email another tenant or tenants  and do not already hold the necessary email address, communication should be established via the HwDAA website contact page. Reasons/purposes for processing information We process personal information to enable us to administer our membership records and activities including fundraising, maintaining our own accounts and records, support and manage our staff, tenants and volunteers. The Association is Registered with the Information Commissioners Office. Reg ref: ZA026613
