Poole Park Life Privacy Policy

How we look after your Personal Information

The Borough of Poole Environmental Development Team takes your privacy seriously; below we explain how, when and why we collect personal information from you, how we store it and how you can exercise your rights in relation to any personally identifiable information we hold.

  • What information is being collected?

When you visit our website we automatically collect statistical data that will include your IP address, your operating system, your browser ID and your browsing activity. We collect this information through the use of Google Analytics, a free web analytics service that tracks and reports website traffic. The information collected does not relate to you as an individual and is collected to provide us with an understanding of the areas of most interest on our site.

When you contact us by telephone or email you will voluntarily provide us with personal information that is likely to include (but may not be limited to) your name, telephone number and email address. We collect and store this information in order to respond to your communication. By providing us with this information you consent to it being collected and stored by Borough of Poole as described in this Privacy Policy.

When you sign up to our Poole Park Life Newsletter we will collect only your email address. This information is stored on a password-protected database provided by MailChimp®. Mailchimp will have and may access the data on our mailing list and the content of our emails to you. If you choose to use the ‘forward to a friend’ link in an email campaign we send, neither your email address nor your friend’s email address is stored by MailChimp, and no one is added to any distribution list as a result. We will only see an aggregate number of times our email campaign was forwarded; we do not have access to the email addresses used to share or receive that forwarded content. The full MailChimp Privacy Policy is available at https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/

  • Who is collecting the information?

Borough of Poole is the owner of the information collected, whether that is during your visit to the website or when you telephone or email the contact numbers or email addresses provided.

The full Borough of Poole Privacy Notice is available at https://www.poole.gov.uk/about-poolegovuk/privacy-notice/

  • How will it be used?

The information will be used solely for the purposes it has been collected and/or provided. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. The servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment.

We do not tolerate spam; we will never send you unsolicited email nor will we sell, share or rent any part of your personal information with any third party unless required to do so by law or where in good faith we believe such action is necessary to comply with a legal process.

  • Your choices

If you would like (a) to know what personally identifiable data has been collected about you, (b) to make any changes to any inaccurate data we hold, or (c) to withdraw your consent to its use and ask us to delete your personal data, please let us know by contacting Martin Whitchurch, Poole Park Life Project Manager on 01202 261700 or by email at m.whitchurch@poole.gov.uk

You can unsubscribe to our Newsletter at any time by clicking on the ‘Unsubscribe’ link provided at the bottom of every Newsletter, or by entering your email address into our MailChimp Unsubscribe form.

If you have any questions or concerns relating to this policy and/or data protection please contact Martin Whitchurch, Poole Park Life Project Manager on 01202 261700 or by email at m.whitchurch@poole.gov.uk
