Privacy Policy

With the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) on 25th May 2018, this privacy policy has been updated to reflect the changes in the data protection laws.

What information do we collect?

We collect the following information from you when you subscribe to our newsletter.

  • First Name
  • Surname
  • Email Address

Once your data is submitted, you will be sent an email to confirm you wish to receive emails from us. This is known as the Double Opt In and provides you with the reassurance that you did in fact give us consent to send you emails. If not, then do not accept the confirmation in the email.

We use Mailchimp to send you emails and newsletters associated with the Bannerbrook Residents Association. On 12th April 2018, all subscribers were sent an email to update their profile and opt-in to receiving newsletters. Anyone who has not opted in prior to the 25th May 2018, will have their email address and personal details removed within 60 days. For more detailed information see our page on the Data Processing Addendum with MailChimp.

What do we use your information for?

The information we collect from you (described above) may be used in one of the following ways:

  • To send periodic emails (eg newsletters mostly and occasional adhoc newsletters in relation to issues on the estate).
  • To inform you of upcoming events (via the newsletter)
  • To inform you of any cancellations to events (via the newsletter)
  • To respond to inquiries in relation to content or issues in our newsletters

The email address you provide may be used to send you information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions relating to Bannerbrook Residents Association and associated issues around the estate.

What happens when you no longer wish to receive newsletters?

On the websites homepage, below the sign up box on the right hand side, you will see a link below Subscribe called Unsubscribe from list. This will allow you to enter your email address and unsubscribe.

Also, in the footer of each newsletter, you can click on Unsubscribe and follow the instructions. You will no longer receive emails from the Bannerbrook Residents Association.

How do we protect your information?

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access your personal information.

Subject Access Requests

Should you send us a Subject Access Request we are obliged to provide you with what personally identifiable information we hold. In our case, this will only be the email address, your first name and your last name and will be supplied from our Mailchimp newsletter system. For the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), we have 1 months notice to provide this information to you.

The main website does not hold personally identifiable information, except where used for administration login purposes.

Data Breaches

The GDPR places a duty on all organisations to report specific types of data breach to the ICO, and in some cases, to individuals.

We will only have to notify the ICO of a breach where it is likely to result in a risk to the rights and freedoms of individuals.
