Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: https://www.santon.org.uk/wordpress.

In order to use some of the services provided by Santon Commissioners, you may be required to submit personal information, such as your name, address, post code and email address.


We have a legal duty to ensure that our processes are fair and that we keep your personal data safe and secure, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2002 which will be replaced by the GDPR. GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation. This is an EU law and will take effect in the Isle of Man from 25th. May 2018.

We do not share your personal information with anybody else without your knowledge, unless we are required by law to do so. An example of this is the Electoral Register, which, by law, must be available to the public.

We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as it is needed for the service you have requested, and remove it in the event that the purpose has been met.

UNDER 18 YEARS

If you are under 18, please get your parent/guardian’s permission before you provide personal information to our website.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Who we share your data with

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
