For the purpose of the email newsletter, we may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal information about you as follows:
your name and email address
The Data Protection Regulation gives us a number of different conditions to allow us to process your personal information lawfully. We’ll only use your information when one of those conditions has been satisfied. We will only use your personal information for the purpose for which we collected it which is to:
Contact you by email with news and information from Scottish Friendly.
This processing is required to fulfil your request and by consenting to receive product and service information via email you agree to your personal information being processed on this basis.
We may share your personal information within Scottish Friendly and with other companies we work with. Our employees will access your information for the uses outlined in the sections above. However, only employees requiring particular access to your information are given it.
We will use our website and email service providers to process your information for you to subscribe to and receive an email newsletter, and who agree to treat your personal information as securely as we do. By providing your information you consent that your personal information will be used by us and our website and email service providers.
When we use our appointed service providers and agents we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure. They will have access to the personal information needed to perform functions on behalf of Scottish Friendly, but may not use it for any other purposes.
Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal information including the right to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you, that inaccurate personal information is corrected, that your personal information be deleted, processing restricted, a copy of your information be provided in a format that allows for easy transfer and the right to make a complaint at any time to the Information Commissioner’s Office, the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues (www.ico.org.uk).
In cases where we are processing your personal information on the basis of our legitimate interest, you can ask us to stop for reasons connected to your individual situation. We will do so unless we have a legitimate overriding reason to continue to process your personal information.
If you have asked us to send you our newsletter and no longer wish to receive these we will need to add you to our ‘suppression’ list of people who do not want to hear from us again in order that we can fulfil your request.
