Our approach to Privacy

We take your right to privacy very seriously and respect any personal information you share with us and endeavour to keep it safe, whatever your relationship is with us.

Importantly we want you to know that we will not sell or rent your data to third parties.

This privacy policy is intended to give you an understanding of how and why we use the information you give us.

By using our website or providing us with any personal information, including sensitive information, you agree to your personal information being used and stored in the manner set out in this policy.

We may update this policy from time to time without notice to you, so please check it regularly. This policy is dated 23rd May 2018.

Verulam Community Radio Limited is a Company Limited by Guarantee, run for the benefit of the community and restricted to not for profit operation. We aim to provide our audience, volunteers, partners and sponsors with media activities for the benefit of all.

The personal information we might collect includes;
(a) your name, address, email address and other contact information (including details of your social media accounts/profiles)
(b) information you enter onto our website
(c) records of your correspondence with us, if you have contacted us
(d) information about your volunteering or employment with us
(e) details of your contact with us, including its frequency
(g) details of your visit to the site including your IP address

Except where permitted by law, we will never collect sensitive personal data about you without your consent.

We use it to make Radio Verulam better for you and everyone in our community. That includes doing things like:

  • Recommending things we think you’ll like, like different radio shows, local interests and events
  • Notifying you about things you’ve told us you like, like podcasts or competitions
  • Keeping in touch with you if you have been a guest on any of our programmes
  • Personalising parts of the Radio Verulam website to your personal tastes, including emails, radio programmes, news, community information and music.

We also use it for business, regulatory and legal purposes, like:

  • Dealing with any requests you make or content you submit
  • Getting in touch if we need to tell you about something, like a change to our policies or issues with a service

As mentioned previously – we won’t sell or rent your data to third parties for them to use for their own purposes without your consent.

Our volunteers and consultants may have access to your data as part of their duties with Radio Verulam and sometimes we may pass your data to third parties when they are working on our behalf. For example, we use a third-party email service called Mailchimp to send out our email news. However, we will only provide those companies with the information they need to deliver the relevant service, and we make sure that your data is treated with the same level of care as if we were handling it directly.

We may disclose your personal information to third parties if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply any agreements, or to protect the rights, property or safety of Verulam Community Radio Ltd.

We use third-party platforms such as WordPress (our website), Mailchimp (for email communications) and HubSpot (for marketing) where we also may store your data. These platforms have restricted access within our organisation and comply with GDPR requirements.
