What information do we collect from you, and why?
Lymm Neighbourhood Plan Working Group are requesting name, address and / or postcode, telephone number and email address from you. We will minimise the data collected e.g. we do not need your address and postcode to enter you onto our email distribution lists.
We have also collected separately ages of adults in household and number of adults and children in a household, which we are keeping separately from contact details to ensure that demographic information is not cross referenced with address information.
The details provided by you will only be used by the Lymm Neighbourhood Plan Working Group.
Who will we share this information with?
We will only share personal data with organisations we use to undertake our planned activities in creating a Neighbourhood Plan, for example we use MailChimp to send bulk emails, and we expect to use a third party internet based survey company to help us collate consultation feedback. We will only use third party companies that comply with relevant data protection legislation.
As we are part of Lymm Parish Council, members of Lymm Parish Council may be able to view (access either physically or electronically) information we hold, though all Lymm Neighbourhood Plan Working Group information is kept separate from Parish Council records and will not undertake any cross referencing with information held by Lymm Parish Council.
We may use de-anonymised sections of data (such as postcodes of respondents on maps of Lymm Village), and separately age ranges of respondents in documentation that we publish, but such data will be separated and presented so that it cannot be used to identify individuals.
Where is Personal Data collected by Lymm Neighbourhood Plan Working Group stored?
We store all information where possible on IT systems that reside in the European Union. We are using MailChimp, a US based company, as a data processor for bulk email delivery and management of email distribution lists. MailChimp & their parent company have signed up to the EU-US Privacy Shield agreement, and Lymm Neighbourhood Plan Group have a contractual data processing agreement with MailChimp.
What is the lawful basis for us collecting and using this information?
The Lymm Neighbourhood Plan Working Group believes that the collection and processing of the data held is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of statutory powers vested in the Lymm Parish Council – specifically the creation of a Neighbourhood Plan for the village of Lymm, in accordance with powers set out in the Localism Act 2011
