5 Your Data Protection rights
Under data protection law, you have rights we need to make you aware of. The rights available to you depend on our reason for processing your information.
Your right of access
You have the right to ask us for copies of your personal information. This right always applies. There are some exemptions, which means you may not always receive all the information we process. You can read more about this on the ICO website here.
Your right to rectification
You have the right to ask us to rectify information you think is inaccurate. You also have the right to ask us to complete information you think is incomplete. This right always applies. You can read more about this on the ICO website here.
Your right to erasure
You have the right to ask us to erase your personal information in certain circumstances. You can read more about this on the ICO website here.
Your right to restriction of processing
You have the right to ask us to restrict the processing of your information in certain circumstances. You can read more about this on the ICO website here .
Your right to object to processing
You have the right to object to processing, if we are able to process your information because the process forms part of our legitimate interests. You can read more about this on the ICO website here.
Your right to data portability
This only applies to information you have given us. You have the right to ask that we transfer the information you gave us from one organisation to another, or give it to you. The right only applies if we are processing information based on your consent or under, or in talks about entering into a contract and the processing is automated. You can read more about this on the ICO website here.
You are not required to pay any charge for exercising your rights. We have one month to respond to you.
Please contact us at email@example.com if you wish to make a request.
6 Sharing your information
We will not share your information with any third parties for the purposes of direct marketing.
We use data processors who are third parties who provide elements of services for us.
The ICO defines a “processor” as: “data processor”, in relation to personal data, means any person (other than an employee of the data controller) who processes the data on behalf of the data controller.
“Processing”, in relation to information or data means obtaining, recording or holding the information or data or carrying out any operation or set of operations on the information or data, including:
- organisation, adaptation or alteration of the information or data,
- retrieval, consultation or use of the information or data,
- disclosure of the information or data by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, or
- alignment, combination, blocking, erasure or destruction of the information or data
Don’t worry, this isn’t as onerous as it sounds, but it covers the fact that we store your data in a database, which volunteers may access and use software like Action Network to email you.
We have contracts in place with our data processors. This means that they cannot do anything with your personal information unless we have instructed them to do it. They will not share your personal information with any organisation apart from us. They will hold it securely and retain it for the period we instruct.
Where we contract with third parties for the processing of your data, these may be located outside the EU (in the USA). When this is the case, we ensure the contracts we have in place with those third parties meet the requirements of the GDPR.
In some circumstances we are legally obliged to share information. For example, under a court order (where we have considered we have a lawful basis on which to share the information and document our decision making).
7 Links to other websites
Where we provide links to websites of other organisations, this privacy notice does not cover how that organisation processes personal information. We encourage you to read the privacy notices on the other websites you visit.
8 Your right to complain
We work to high standards when it comes to processing your personal information. If you have queries or concerns, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll respond.
If you remain dissatisfied, you can make a complaint about the way we process your personal information to the ICO as the UK supervisory authority. Please follow this link to see how to do that.
10 Visitors to our website
When you visit www.rebellion.earth, we use third-party services, including Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of behaviour patterns. We do this to find out such things as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way that 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.
If we do collect personal data through our website, we’ll be upfront about this. We’ll make it clear when we collect personal information and we’ll explain what we intend to do with it.
By default, our cookie tool requires explicit opt in action by users of our website. This will apply to the non-necessary cookies. We will ensure any necessary cookies for functionality and security are not deleted.
Search queries and results on our website are logged anonymously to help us improve our website and search functionality. No identifiable personal information is collected by us.
Purpose and legal basis for processing
The purpose for implementing the above is to maintain and monitor the performance of our website and to constantly look to improve the site and the services it offers to our users. The legal basis we rely on to process your personal data is article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, which allows us to process personal data when its necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests.
What are your rights?
As we are processing your personal data for our legitimate interests as stated above, you have the right to object to our processing of your personal data. There are legitimate reasons why we may refuse your objection, which depend on why we are processing it.
For more information on your rights, please see the ICO website: ‘Your rights as an individual’.
11 Automated decision-making or profiling
We do not use automated decision making. We may occasionally profile your data for the purpose of recruiting Rebels, who wish to Rebel for Life.
