Our Privacy Policy

This policy describes how and why Friends of Shrewsbury Park uses your personal information, how we protect your privacy when doing so, and your rights and choices regarding this information. We promise to respect any of your personal information which is under our control and to keep it safe. We aim to be clear when we collect your information about what we will do with it.

We are a small voluntary group with relationships with hundreds of local supporters and volunteers who care about Shrewsbury Park. Our use of personal information allows us to make better decisions, fundraise more efficiently and, ultimately, helps us to reach our goal of increasing the number of people using the park and putting on great events to celebrate it.

This policy is effective from 25 May 2018.

How we collect information about you
We can sign you up at a park event by asking you to complete a short registration form, or you can sign up securely on our website.

What personal information we collect
We ask for minimal details – usually a name, email address and home address so that we can let you know about our events. This is not classifed as sensitive data under GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations).

How we use your information
We will typically use the information you give us to tell you about what is going on in the park, and reporting back on what the management committee are doing.

How we keep your information safe
We do not store lists on personal computers and use secure email client software which is carefully passworded to avoid hackers.

Want to stop hearing from us?
You can unsubscribe from the mailing list using a link we add to the bottom of most of our emails, or you can contact us at werfsp@gmail.com with the heading ‘unsubscribe’.

Sharing your information with other organisations
We do not share your information with other organisations.

Formed in 2006, the Friends of Shrewsbury Park encourage the use of Shrewsbury Park and support the development of facilities for recreation, education and amenities for local people and to encourage a sense of community around the park.
