The processing of personal data is governed by the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (the GDPR).
Persephone Burleton, PhD is the data controller for MH organics. email@example.com This means we decide how your personal data is processed and for what purposes.
Personal data relates to a living individual who can be identified from that data. Identification can be by the information alone or in conjunction with any other information in the data controller’s possession or likely to come into such possession. Examples of personal data we may hold about you include your contact details.
Special category data is a sub-category of personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, and the processing of genetic data, biometric data for the purpose of uniquely identifying a natural person, data concerning health or data concerning a natural person’s sex life or sexual orientation.
We comply with our obligations under the GDPR by keeping personal data up to date; by storing and destroying it securely; by not collecting or retaining excessive amounts of data; by protecting personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access and disclosure and by ensuring that appropriate technical measures are in place to protect personal data. We use your personal data for the purposes set out below.
Your personal data will be treated as strictly confidential, and will be shared:
For further details about the situations when information about you might be shared please see the Information Commissioner’s website at https://ico.org.uk/for-the-public/personal-information/sharing-my-info
We keep your personal data for no longer than reasonably necessary where a right to be forgotten request or newsletter unsubscribe notice has not be received (no more than two years for dormant newsletter subscriber accounts).
We will keep up to date with all legislation and changes regarding the collecting, processing, storing, sharing and destruction of your personal data. This notice and our Data protection policies and procedures will be reviewed every 12 months to ensure we are complying with all legislation and regulations regarding Data Protection, and to improve the way in which we handle your data, unless changes in legislation and regulations are made/come into force before the next review date (see end of privacy notice).
In most cases where we process sensitive personal data we will require the data subject's explicit consent to do this unless exceptional circumstances apply or we are required to do this by law (e.g. to comply with legal obligations to ensure health and safety at work). Any such consent will need to clearly identify what the relevant data is, why it is being processed and to whom it will be disclosed.
We will ensure that any personal data we process is accurate, adequate, relevant and not excessive, given the purpose for which it was obtained. We will not process personal data obtained for one purpose for any unconnected purpose unless the individual concerned has agreed to this or would otherwise reasonably expect this.
Individuals may ask that we correct inaccurate personal data relating to them. If we believe that information is inaccurate we will record the fact that the accuracy of the information is disputed.
Unless subject to an exemption under the GDPR, you have certain rights with respect to your personal data as set out below.
For further details about these rights please see the Information Commissioner’s website at https://ico.org.uk/for-the-public/is-my-information-being-handled-correctly
If we wish to use your personal data for a new purpose, not covered by this Privacy Notice, then we will provide you with a new notice explaining this new use prior to commencing the processing and setting out the relevant purposes and processing conditions. Where and whenever necessary, we will seek your prior consent to the new processing.
