3. Using Your Personal Data

We will use your personal data to:

  • Administer the Website
  • Improve your browsing experience by personalising the website
  • Enable your use of the services available on the websiteSend statements and invoices to you, and collect payments from you
  • Send you general (non-marketing) commercial communications
  • Send you email notifications which you have specifically requested
  • Send you our newsletter and other marketing communications relating to TSS’s business which we think may be of interest to you by post, or where you have specifically agreed to this by email or similar technology (you can inform us at any time if you no longer require marketing communications)
  • Provide third parties with statistical information about our users but this information will not be used to identify any individual user
  • Deal with any enquiries and complaints made by or about you relating to the Website. If at any time you submit personal information for publication on our website, we will publish and otherwise use that information in accordance with the permission you grant to us.

4. Security of Your Data

Non-sensitive details (your email address etc) when transmitted normally over the internet cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Whilst we take all possible means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit electronically to us, and you do so at your own risk.

We keep your data secure in our database and systems with appropriate security mechanisms in place. In principle we do not share your data with anyone else or any other organisation unless it is necessary for the purpose for which you have given the data.

Examples are given below;

  • We will provide information to HMRC on Gift Aided donations as we have a legal obligation to provide this information
  • We may pass data to other organisations known as Data Processors, to provide specific services to us. An example would be providing data to a Consultant to run a satisfaction survey. A contract is always in place with a Data processor, and they are not allowed to do anything with your data other than that which we have requested.

Some of our suppliers run their operations outside of the European Economic Area (EEA). Although they may not be subject to the same data protection laws as companies based in the UK, we will take steps to make sure they provide an adequate level of protection in accordance with UK data protection law. By submitting your personal information to us you agree to this transfer, storing or processing at a location outside of the EEA.

5. Our Responsibilities

The law requires us to tell you the basis on which we process your data.

  • Some activities (for example sending you emails which promote The Swinging Sixties) require your consent. If the law requires your consent to process data in a certain way, then we will obtain it before carrying out that activity.
  • Other activities are carried out to fulfil a contract or agreement. Examples include arranging maintenance and repairs to your home. This requires us to know who you are and to process your information in order to do the thing you have asked us to do. If a contract is in place, then we will process your data based on that contract.
  • In all other cases, the law allows us to process your data if it is in our legitimate interest to do so, but only so long as we need to and your interests or your fundamental rights and freedoms are not overriding. Practically speaking, this means we carry out an exercise to check that we will not cause you harm by processing your data, that the processing is not overly intrusive and that we will only do so in a way that is described in this privacy notice.

We will keep data for as long as is needed to complete the task for which it was collected.

6. Policy Amendments

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time by posting a new version on our website. You should check this page occasionally to ensure you are happy with changes.

7. Your Rights

The law requires us to tell you that you have a variety of rights about the way we process your data. These are as follows:

  • Where our use of your data requires consent, you may withdraw this consent at any time
  • Where we rely on our legitimate interest to process data, you may ask us to stop doing so
  • You may request a copy of the data we hold about you
  • You may change or stop the way in which we communicate with you or process data about you, and if it is not required for the purpose you provided it, then we will do so. Activities like processing Gift Aid donations, or managing Fund Agreements, may mean we cannot entirely stop processing your data. We will always endeavour to comply with such a request, however.

If you are not satisfied with the way we have processed your data, then you can complain to the Office of the Information Commissioner.
