What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service Privacy Policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Who we share your data with

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Accountability

NB: We do not pass data onto 3rd Parties unless it enables us to perform services requested by you.

Some services on this website require us to collect personal information from you. To comply with the Data Protection Act, we have a duty of confidentiality and to tell you how we store the information we collect and how it is used. Any information you do submit will be stored securely and will never be passed on or sold to any third party.

User anonymity and personal information

Log files are maintained and analysed of all requests for files on this website’s web servers. Log files do not capture personal information but do capture the user’s IP address, which is automatically recognised by our web servers.

Aggregated analysis of these log files is used to monitor website usage. These analyses may be made available to CIVIC staff and partner agencies to allow them to measure, for example, overall popularity of the site and typical user paths through the site.

Except as stated already, CIVIC will make no attempt to identify individual users. You should be aware, however, that access to web pages will generally create log entries in the systems of your ISP or network service provider. These entities may be in a position to identify the client computer equipment used to access a page. Such monitoring would be done by the provider of network services and is beyond the responsibility or control of CIVIC.

CIVIC will make no attempt to track or identify individual users, except where there is a reasonable suspicion that unauthorised access to systems is being attempted. In the case of all users, CIVIC reserves the right to attempt to identify and track any individual who is reasonably suspected of trying to gain unauthorised access to computer systems or resources operating as part of CIVIC web services.

As a condition of use of this site, all users must give permission for CIVIC to use its access logs to attempt to track users who are reasonably suspected of gaining, or attempting to gain, unauthorised access.

All log file information collected by CIVIC is kept secure and no access to raw log files is given to any third party.

You have a right to ask us whether and how we are processing your personal information, to request access to your processed personal data, to obtain information in relation to the purpose of such processing, the type of information processed, the sources and recipients of your information, how long we store your information, whether we use automated decision making software, to correct inaccurate and complete incomplete information, to stop or restrict the scope of processing some or all of your personal data and to stop all automated decision-making processing.

You also have the right to ask us to erase your personal information and if it is not necessary for the purpose you provided it to us for (e.g. processing your donation or registering you for an event), or you have withdrawn your consent for such processing and such processing is not for a task in the public interest or for public health, or necessary to pursue our or a third party’s legitimate business interests, or required by law or litigation, we will do so without delay. We will also take reasonable steps to make any other third parties to whom your information has been shared aware of your erasure request.

You have a right to ask for a copy of the information we hold about you which we will do free of charge. You may request a copy in an electronic format so that you can easily store it for your personal use and transmit it electronically to a third party. If there are any discrepancies in the information we provide, please let us know and we will correct it.

By law, you can ask us what information we hold about you, and you can ask us to correct it if it is inaccurate. You can also ask us to give you a copy of the information and to stop using your information for a period of time if you believe we are not doing so lawfully. To submit a request by email, post or telephone, please use the contact information provided above.

We have a handful of documents available for customers which should enhance your understanding of how we use your data.
