For us to comply with Data Protection Regulations, please note the following:
What data is captured by you signing up.
We ask for your name and email address.
Why it is needed.
To send the Neighbourhood Watch Newsletter to you.
What we will do with it.
Your data is only used to distribute Neighbourhood Watch Update. It is not shared with third parties. This includes OWL and NSMRA.
NSMRA maintains a totally separate list for their distribution of newsletters. The two are not linked. Their website for subscribing is www.nsmra.org.
Where and for how long it is stored.
The subscription data is stored by Mailchimp on their servers which may be in locations outside the UK. It will be stored until you remove it or we do at your request.
Emails to us are only stored for as long as it takes us to answer any query. The mail is then deleted. We keep messages from NSMRA Committee, Police and OWL only. Messages are stored on IONOS servers, which again may be outside the UK. The mail is not stored by us on any personal devices.
How to remove your data.
There is an unsubscribe link in each newsletter, and this automatically deletes your data from the list. We are notified of this and data is manually deleted. You can also mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will remove you.
Can you see what we hold about you?
You can request to see what data we are holding about you at email@example.com . That is your legal right.
NSMRA Neighbourhood Watch and NSMRA Residents Association data protection statements are not aligned. It is important to clarify this.
The NSMRA website and newsletter contain incorrect information that the association has pledged to correct at it’s last monthly committee meeting. Data is not shared between NSMRA and NSMRA NW. To help clarify this they will be rewording their statements and removing any subscription to the Neighbourhood Watch newsletter from their media.
This clean break will help make it clear for subscribers. If you wish to subscribe to the Neighbourhood Watch newsletter you can only do so via the form at the bottom of each page on this site. Likewise, you cannot subscribe to the Resident’s Association newsletter via this website.
Both web sites will only contain a link to each other.
The information we store is your email address and name. When you unsubscribe your data will be manually removed from the Mailchimp system completely and you will not receive any further correspondence.
We also monitor this website using Google Analytics, which collects data about web browsers, types, sizes, mobile or Pc etc, visits to the site, pages viewed but no personal data. From that information we ensure the site is designed in a way that is useable by you all. For example we have a very high percentage of hits using Apple devices so the site has to be Safari friendly. We can see which articles are being read so the quality and relevance of the content we have is checked. Over half our views are to mobile devices so we had to redesign the site to be fully flexible to the different screen sizes. No personal data is captured.
All email is going via a single account to which only the administrator has access. Once any communication has been dealt with we delete the mails. We keep Police and OWL notifications for a period.
