Personal Data Protection Policy

Conserving your personal data

Thank you very much for taking the time to read our Personal Data Protection Policy. We know that your personal data is precious to you. That is why we want to ensure that we treat the personal data we hold with care and respect.

The Friends of Manning’s Pit is an unincorporated group that exists to protect the area of Manning’s Pit in Pilton, Barnstaple from development. We campaign, provide information on the current position and raise money to achieve this aim. In order to successfully carry out these tasks, it is necessary for us to collect, store and process personal data.

Personal Data is collected in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. Our Personal Data Protection Policy details how we collect, store and use your data and why this is important to us. We collect the email addresses of people who have supported us so that we can keep them informed of progress in protecting the site and of events and fund raising needs. We also have a website, Facebook and Twitter pages.

We want you to feel in control of how your data is used. You are free to opt-out of any of the data uses at any time. We have tried to keep the information in this policy as clear as possible. However, should you ever have any questions about how your data is being used, or if you would like us to change the way we use your data, please do not hesitate to contact us via our website:

The Friends and Third Parties

The Friends group does not sell your data, or make it available to other organisations or third parties for commercial purposes.

Future Changes

Occasionally we may need to change the way we use your data in response to changing needs, processes, legal requirements or activity. We will update this policy to reflect any changes. We will endeavour to highlight where changes have been made.
