Legal Grounds of Processing

The legal grounds for our processing of your personal information and how we share the information.

We process your personal information under the ‘legitimate interests’ provision of GDPR.  This means that when you share your personal information with us, we will have a genuine and legitimate reason to process your information and we are not harming any of your rights.

The information about you that we collect and use

It is important to us that we inform you about the information we collect and why we collect it.

  1. What information will Rowheath Pavilion collect about me?

Rowheath Pavilion may receive and retain personal information, when you hire a room, make a payment for hire of a room, an event booking, sign up for any online content; or you telephone or email or write to Rowheath Pavilion, or engage with Rowheath Pavilion through social media channels, or when you make a donation for fundraising purposes. This may consist of information such as your name, postal address, email address, phone number (landline and/or mobile), bank account details, including card details in order to process donations, and whether your tax payment status enables TCC to claim Gift Aid on your donation.

We do not usually collect ‘sensitive personal details’ such as health status, unless there is a clear reason to do so – such as access requirements. It will be clear on any booking form why we are asking for this information.

If you browse the Rowheath Pavilion website anonymously, Rowheath Pavilion may collect certain information from you such as your IP address, which uniquely identifies a computer or other network device on the internet.

If you enter contact details on a contact form but don’t submit that form, Rowheath Pavilion may still collect your information but will only use that information to contact the user to help solve any problems you may have been experiencing with the form or our website.

Rowheath Pavilion operates a CCTV system for the purposes of criminal and anti-social behaviour prevention and detection only, as well as the detection of gross misconduct by staff. Staff may also take photos of individuals carrying out criminal or anti-social behaviour. These may be shared with police, colleges and schools and will be stored securely.

  1. How will Rowheath Pavilion use the information it collects about me?

The ways that Rowheath Pavilion will use your personal information includes:

  • To fulfil event bookings and sales
  • To provide you with information about Rowheath Pavilion activities and work in your preferred format (paper/email/online content)
  • To provide you with the information you have asked to receive
  • For internal record keeping
  • To contact you about any information you provide
  • For marketing purposes, where you have specifically consented to receive marketing communications from Rowheath Pavilion
  • For administration purposes: TCC may contact you regarding a donation you have made or any other activity you have entered into with TCC, for example, to see if your donation is eligible for Gift Aid.
  • To ask you to participate in any surveys about our work or the way we contact you.
  • To use IP addresses to identify the location, including the country, of users, to block disruptive and fraudulent users.
  • To analyse and improve the navigation and content offered on the Rowheath Pavilion website to provide you with the most user- friendly experience. We may use the information in aggregate (so that no individuals are identified) for strategic development and marketing purposes.
  • Photos and CCTV images will be used to identify those involved in anti-social and criminal behaviour.
  1. Will I be contacted for marketing purposes?

Rowheath Pavilion will only contact you for marketing purposes where you have freely given consent for us to do so. We may personalize the message content on information you have given us.

  1. Will Rowheath Pavilion share my personal information with anyone else?

Rowheath Pavilion will only use your information for the purposes it was obtained. You will not receive offers from other companies or organisations as a result of Rowheath Pavilion collecting your personal information unless you provided your information to pass onto a third party, such the organizer of a class held at Rowheath Pavilion, or wedding service providers.

We may need to share your information with data processors/service providers who help us to prepare materials relating to our work. The data processors will only act in accordance with our instructions and they will not be allowed to use your data for their own purposes. They undertake to keep your data secure.

We will also comply with disclosure requests required or permitted by law, such as government departments for tax purposes.

  1. Offensive or inappropriate content placed on the Rowheath Pavilion website and social media platforms.

If you post or send inappropriate, offensive, or objectionable content anywhere on the Rowheath Pavilion website, social media pages or to the offices, or engage in any behaviour which is disruptive to the Rowheath Pavilion service, we may use your personal information to stop you doing this.

Where we think you may be in breach of any law of England and Wales, such as defamation, discrimination, we may use your personal information to notify relevant third parties such as your email/ social media platform/internet provider, the police or other law enforcement agency about your behaviour and the content.

  1. What if I am aged under 18?

Rowheath Pavilion will get your permission of your parents to hold information such as your date of birth. Any photos or CCTV images used for the purpose of identifying those carrying out criminal or disruptive behaviour will be held securely and may be shared with your school or parents.

  1. How long will Rowheath Pavilion keep my personal information?

We will hold your information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, such as a record of your hire payments or donations for 7 years. In some instances, there is a legal requirement to hold some personal information for a set period of time.

CCTV images are retained for a month.

If you ask Rowheath Pavilion to stop sending you marketing materials, we will keep a record of your contact details and the information necessary to ensure we comply with your request.

  1. Changes to privacy policy

We may change this privacy notice from time to time by updating this page in order to reflect changes in the law and/or our privacy practices. We encourage you to check this privacy notice for changes whenever you visit our website.

By law, you have a number of rights as a data subject, such as the right to be informed, the right to access information held about you and the right to rectification of any inaccurate data that we hold about you.
