2. What is the legal basis for processing your personal data?

We need your explicit consent so that we can keep you informed about news, events and activities and process your donations, membership fees, purchases and send you our quarterly magazine.

3. Sharing your personal data

The Littleport Society does not share your data with any third parties outside of The Littleport Society.

4. How long do we keep your personal data?

We keep your personal data for no longer than reasonably necessary. We retain your data for the duration of your membership plus one year.

We do this because some members forget to renew membership. If we keep your details for this one extra year we can continue to send you our magazine and a membership reminder. This does not affect your rights under the GDPR.

6. Further processing

If we wish to use your personal data for a new purpose, not covered by this Data Privacy Notice, then we will provide you with a new notice explaining this new use prior to commencing the processing and setting out the relevant purposes and processing conditions. Where and whenever necessary, we will seek your prior consent to the new processing.
