Dorchester on Thames Village Hall GDPR Privacy Policy 

Legitimate Interests Data Use 

Under data protection laws we have a number of lawful reasons where we can use (or ‘process’) personal information. One of the lawful reasons is called ‘legitimate interests’. 

Broadly speaking ‘legitimate interests’ means that we can process personal information if we have a genuine and legitimate reason and we are not harming anyone’s rights and interests. 

When hirers or customers provide their personal details to us, we use the information for our legitimate business interests to carry out our work maintaining and developing the Village Hall. Before doing this, we will also carefully consider and balance any potential impact on individuals and their rights. 

Similarly, we may acquire personal information from our Facebook page, from village Facebook pages, from 200 Club members list or by creating a list of people known to us and who have an interest in village matters. 

Some typical examples of when we might use the approach are for direct marketing for fundraising, maintaining the list of 200 Club members, identifying usage trends and determining the effectiveness of our campaigns and fundraising.
