This privacy policy explains how the limited personal information that you provide and that is collected about you when you use this website.

1. What information is collected about you
Information about - such as your name and email address - if collected from you when you contact us through this website, and when you register for further news and information.  Other information may be collected when you voluntarily complete any surveys and provide feedback - all such forms will draw your attention to what information is being collected and why, and will require your permission to be collected and used.



2. How your information will be used
Information about you - such as your name, email address, other contact details - will be collected to help you with an issue or other constituency matter you raise, and with your permission, to keep you informed about what we are doing as your elected representatives.  We think it is important to keep you informed about what is happening in and around the Ward. 

With your permission, this is normally achieved quickly and inexpensively by email, as all your City elected representatives are unpaid volunteers, and receive no allowance to pay to print and deliver any physical materials.

Any information collected from the website is used to record use for statistical analysis - this information is not used to identify any individual, or individual usage of the website.

Your information is not shared with anyone else other than Farringdon Within elected Councilmen and Alderman.  Sharing with fellow elected Members will only occur with your permission, and only where necessary.  If you need to contact any Member with an issue that requires help from a City of London Corporation Officer, I will need your permission to forward on any personal information you have already provided.  In such a scenario and to avoid delay, it may be quicker and easier for you to contact a relevant individual Member directly through the City of London website.


3. Newsletter and other emailed information
From time-to-time we would like to send you news and information about our work and our ward which may be of interest to you.  If you have consented to receive such email, you may opt out at a later date - every email we send will provide you with this option.

Where you allow us to contact you via email, a trusted third-party email service provider may be used to manage this process.  Currently, Mailchimp is used, which means that your data may leave the EU in order for you to receive an email sent through their secure website.

If you no longer wish to be contacted for such purposes, as is your right, please click here.

4. Access to your information and correction
You have the right to request a copy of the information that I hold about you.  If you would like a copy of some
or all of your personal information, please email or write to us at the following address.

A small charge may be requested to cover costs for this service.

I want to make sure that your personal information is accurate and up to date.  You may ask me to correct or
remove information you think is inaccurate.
