The type of personal information we collect. 

We currently collect and process the following information:

In operating the site, we may include newsletters, online commenting areas, and other online forms that ask users to provide their names, e-mail addresses, and other contact information. 

How we get the personal information and why we have it. 

Most of the personal information we process is provided to us directly by you for one of the following reasons:

  • In the process of contacting our group e.g. via our website contact page
  • In the process of posting a public comment on our website where that is possible 

We also receive personal information indirectly, from the following sources in the following scenarios:​

  1. AUTOMATIC COLLECTION. Our host’s server automatically recognises visitors’ domain names and IP addresses (the number assigned to computers on the Internet). No personal information about you is revealed in this process. The site may also gather anonymous “traffic data” that does not personally identify you, but that may be helpful for marketing purposes or for improving the services we offer.
  2. COOKIES. From time to time, we may use the standard “cookies” feature of major browser applications that allows us to store a small piece of data on your computer about your visit to our site. Cookies help us learn which areas of our site are useful and which areas need improvement. You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings on your browser. However, if you choose to disable this function, your experience at our site may be diminished and some features may not work as they were intended.​​


WHAT COOKIES DO WE STORE? There are a handful of cookies on this site, set by WordPress and Google, and typical for a blog using Google Analytics. There is one cookie set by a plugin on the site that records whether you’ve seen our Privacy Policy (viewed_cookie_policy=’yes’), i.e. this page(!) so that will now be set.

We use the information that you have given us in order to contact our members or those who have contacted us.​

We do not share this information with other third parties except as required by law by request of duly constituted authorities.​

Under the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR), the lawful bases we rely on for processing this information are:​

(a) Your consent. You are able to remove your consent at any time. You can do this by contacting contact@carleenvillagehall.co.uk or any of the contact details listed on our website.

(b) We have a legitimate interest in respect of contacting people who contact us and communicating with our members

How we use, store or share your personal information​

  1. PERSONAL INFORMATION. We will not share your personal information with any third parties without your consent, except as necessary to provide you with the services offered by us or to comply with the law.

No individual user’s visit, whether you or another visitor, are discussed. The aggregate data is used for education purposes only and no reader of the article will be able to identify you.
  2. ANONYMOUS INFORMATION. We use anonymous information to analyse our site traffic. In addition, we may use anonymous IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our host’s server, to administer our site, or to display content according to your preferences.
