Privacy Notice & Cookies Policy
At the Whalley Village Hall, we are committed
to maintaining the trust and confidence of our visitors to our web site and
subscribers to our newsletter. Here you’ll find information on how we treat
data that we collect from visitors to our website, or when someone subscribes
to our newsletter. In particular, we want you to know that Whalley Village Hall
is not in the business of selling, renting or trading email lists with
individuals, other charities or any other organisation for marketing purposes.
When someone visits the Whalley Village Hall website we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website. You can find more information on how cookies are used on this website in the Cookies Policy below.
If we do want to collect personally
identifiable information through our website, we will be up front about this.
We will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain
what we intend to do with it.
As part of the registration process for our monthly e-newsletter, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don't rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.
We use a third party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice.
You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing our data protection officer Kerry Hollick.

review. This privacy notice was last updated on 21 December 2017.
