Privacy Policy

Confidentiality and security

We are committed to protecting your privacy when you use this web site and to meeting the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulations. The information that we collect is only used to make it easier for you to access our website and the information you seek and to allow us to improve the site. This privacy policy covers the treatment of personal data that we might collect when you e-mail us, when you complete and submit an online form on our website or when you register for news updates.

When completing forms you may be asked for personal information such as name, address, postcode, email address, etc.  It is only when you supply this type of information that you can be personally identified.  Information we collect from visitors and those registering will be used:-

  • to respond to you where necessary
  • to develop and improve our site
  • to contact you in relation to local issues, services and events

We publish some personal information (names, emails, telephone numbers) as part of the various directories of local clubs and services on this site. Since this is for the benefit of the village as a whole and for the organisations concerned we consider that this processing is a matter of legitimate interest under GDPR. When you add comments to pages or posts on this site your log-on identification is displayed. You should be aware that this will make your views public and could display personal data (depending on your choice of log-on id). If you wish to comment in confidence please email woodfordsignposteditor@gmail.com. For other processing of personal information we will seek explicit consent.

This personal data is held in accordance with all current legislation.  We will not sell or rent your personal data to anyone, or use the data for any other purpose than that for which it was originally collected.  You have the right to access the personal information we hold about you at any time. You have the right to ask us to remove any personal data that we hold about you. If you suspect that information from this site is being misused, you should let us know. You can do this by email to the following address: woodfordsignposteditor@gmail.com.

The Parish Council, in common with all public bodies, has to appoint a Data Protection Officer. To minimise the costs of this to the Parish, the Council has chosen to use a shared service with other Councils and has appointed Northamptonshire County Association of Local Councils (NCALC). If you need to contact our Data Protection Officer they can be reached as follows:-
