The information below is what is referred to as a ‘Privacy Notice’ which explains how we use and protect your personal information.
Personal information is any records that can identify and relate to a living person. This can also include information that when put together with other information can then identify a person.
Where necessary CCHSG PTFA might process the personal data that you supply to enable us to contact you about relevant events and activities. We do not sell personal data to any other organisation for the purposes of selling products.
We do not share information with other companies or partners unless you have specifically given us permission to do so (e.g. supplying list of addresses to William H Brown for installation of advertising boards). Where we have these arrangements there is always a contract, memorandum of understanding or information sharing protocol in place to ensure that the organisation complies with data protection law.

We will do what we can to make sure we hold personal records (on paper and electronically) in a secure way, and we will only make them available to those who have a good reason to see them. Our security includes:
