Privacy Policy

This privacy policy sets out how Labour First collects and uses any information you may give us when you visit this website, subscribe to our Mailchimp account or otherwise communicate with us.

What information do we collect?

We may collect, store and use two kinds of data, personal and behavioural.

Personal data relates to the information you provide to us and may include your name, address, email address and post code.

Behavioural data relates to information about your visit to and actions on this website, and includes your IP address, referrer, length of visit and number of page views. This information is essential for the website to work correctly, and allows us to improve the performance and functionality of the site.

How will we use your data?

The information you provide will be used to keep you up to date with our opinions about developments in the Labour Party, to suggest campaigning activities you may want to be involved in, and to inform you about our events. You may opt out from receiving such information at any time.

Your personal details will never be published on this site.

We will only disclose personal information to third parties if required by law to do so.

Controlling your data

If the information we hold about you needs to be corrected or updated, you would like to be unsubscribed from our emails, or have any other questions or concerns about our use of your personal data, please contact us at labourfirst@gmail.com .

To request a copy of any information we hold about you, please send proof of identity to labourfirst@gmail.com . We will reply within 40 days.

We will only disclose personal information to third parties if required by law to do so.

Security

We have in place measures to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of the information under our control. All collected data is stored in locked, secure environments, and resides in the UK and, where in the US, on servers compliant with the EU Safe Harbour framework.

Other websites

Our website, emails and social media feeds will almost certainly contain links to other websites, not under our control. As such, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information you may provide while visiting other sites, nor are said sites governed by this privacy policy. If you have any concerns, do refer to the privacy policy of the site in question.

  • only process information necessary to establish or maintain membership or support; and
  • only process information necessary to provide or administer activities for people who are members of the organisation or have regular contact with it; and
  • only share the information with people and organisations necessary to carry out our organisation’s activities; and
  • only keep the information while the individual is a member or supporter or as long as necessary for member/supporter administration.
