On May 25th 2018 the European Union introduced a new law concerning the management of personal data. General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) brings together existing national data protection laws and makes them uniform across the 28 countries of the EU. It is intended to improve protection for individuals and to give them more power over how their data is held and processed. All organisations whether inside or outside the EU that hold personal data of European residents must comply with GDPR.
St Ives Archive holds personal data relevant to our stated intention. We process data on organisations, agencies and persons where we have a legal or contractual obligation so to do.
Historic data of those living and dead is held and processed in the Public Interest.
Current Personal Data is held so that we can communicate with our Members, Volunteers, Third Parties who work with us and those who choose to use our services. We do this with their informed consent and we can make this information available only to those concerned or where we have a legal obligation to do so.
St Ives Archive complies with GDPR. Although some of our contacts may be outside the EU we have decided that because of the additional benefits afforded by this legislation we will treat everyone in the same manner. We value our privacy and respect the right of all to maintain theirs. We treat all personal information with confidentiality. Under no circumstances do we knowingly pass any personal information to anyone outside our organisation without that person's consent.
If you have any questions or comments, or if you want to update, change or delete any of your Personal Information that we hold, or you have a concern about the way in which we have handled any privacy matter, please get in touch with our Data Protection Officer. You may also contact us by post, the address can be found on our Contact Page.
