Given the relaxation of Covid restrictions, we're gradually re-opening here at Howden Shire Hall starting with some of our hosted groups and classes from 17th May. See the classes section of our website for more information.
We collect the following types of data:
Spark, Worldpay and Howden Shire Hall have implemented appropriate measures to protect against accidental loss, destruction, damage, alteration or disclosure of data.
For more information, please see our 3rd parties’ privacy policies here:
When someone visits our website (www.howdenshirehall.co.uk) we use a number of third party services to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site, types of devices used, and length of time on pages.
We also collect, use and share “Aggregated Data” such as statistical or demographic data. Aggregated data is derived from your personal data, but once in aggregated form it is not considered personal data for the purposes of the GDPR as this data does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity.
When you sign up to our mailing list, either at the time of booking or separately through the sign up form on our website, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to send you regular newsletters; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied with our service.
We also gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our marketing. You can unsubscribe by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
We take the security of children’s data particularly seriously, and only collect data which is essential for the health & safety of children when attending activities specifically organised by Howden Shire Hall and where no parent is present. This data is stored securely, only accessed by essential personnel, and only retained for a relevant period. Please note that for those hirers of the hall who host children’s classes, it is their responsibility to adhere to GDPR requirements.
GDPR sets out the principle that personal data shall not be kept for longer than is necessary for the purpose or purposes for which it was obtained.
Howden Shire Hall has the following data retention periods in place:
|Data set||Retention period|
|Customer data (including regular users, sponsors, Friends of the Shire Hall etc.)||Removed after 5 years of inactivity|
|Accident/incident forms||3 years from the date of the last entry or if involving a minor, until that person reaches the age of 21.|
We may review and update this policy. This version was last updated on 18/5/2018.
You are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that we hold. Email your request to email@example.com and we will respond to you within 30 days.
