Why do we process your personal data?

The Strettons Mayfair Trust complies with its obligations under the (General Data Protection Regulations 2017) by keeping personal data up to date; by storing and destroying it securely; by not collecting or retaining excessive amounts of data; by protecting personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access and disclosure and by ensuring that appropriate technical measures are in place to protect personal data.

We use personal data for many different purposes, depending on why it has been gathered. Here are some examples: –

We will have told you when we gathered your data how it would be used.

Lawful basis for processing your data

The law says we must tell those who’s personal data we use, about the legal grounds for using it.  There are many legal grounds.  We must select the right one(s) for your situation. You will be informed at the time your information is collected of the legal ground(s) for us using that information.

Sharing your personal data

We will not sell your personal data to third parties.  We will not share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.  We may pass your information to our third-party service providers, agents, subcontractors and other associated organisations for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf, but we will not do so without explaining why and to whom at the time we gather your data. Where we use third party providers, we will only disclose the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service.  We will not release your personal information to third parties for them to use for their own direct marketing purposes, unless you have requested us to do so or we are required to so do by law or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crimes.

Visitors comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

How long do we keep your personal data?

We keep your personal data in accordance with our Records Retention Policy and only for the purpose for which it was gathered.  The specific period will depend on the type of data and the type of service, but you will be informed at the time your data is collected of the specific period.  We review our retention periods on a regular basis.  We are legally required to keep some types of information to fulfil our statutory obligations e.g. the collection of Gift Aid.

If you leave a comment on our website, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely.  This is so we can recognise and approve any follow up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
