About this privacy policy

This privacy policy sets out the way we process your personal data. We have created this privacy policy to make sure you are aware of how we use your data as a Member of The Clock Register.

Lawful basis

Under the GDPR, we are required to tell you on what lawful basis we hold data about you. There are several we can choose from. The lawful basis on which we choose to hold your data is called legitimate interests. This is, where you use people’s data in ways they would reasonably expect and which have a minimal privacy impact, or where there is a compelling justification for the processing. The compelling justification is that we need to have your first name, last name and email linked to any clock records that you produce, so we know who to contact if we have questions about what you have entered.

How we collect your information

When you join The Clock Register, we collect your first name, last name and email. When you join our mailing list, we collect your email address and first name only.

If you decide to contribute clock photos to The Clock Register and you decide you want to share in any revenues created by people who look at your photos than we will ask you to fill in your bank details which we need in order to pay you.

How we use personal data

We will use your first name and last name to show on clock records that you have created in The Clock Register. We will use your email to contact you if we have questions about clock records you have created, or updated. We will use your bank details to pay you. We will also use your email to send you a newsletter from time to time. You can opt in to our newsletter on our home page. You can opt out at any time by emailing our webmaster or by clicking unsubscribe when you receive our newsletter.

Your marketing preferences

We will always respect your wishes in respect of what type of communications you want to receive from us and how you want to receive them.

If you wish to delete or change the personal data we hold about you, you can do so by logging into The Clock Register and going here or by contacting us at: Telephone: 07590 673 598

Sharing your information with others

We will not give, nor sell, your Member details to anyone, unless forced to do so by law.

How long your information is kept

We keep your personal data only for as long as you have a valid membership with The Clock Register.

Your rights

Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:

  • request access to your personal data (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
  • request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
  • request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
  • object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes.
  • request the restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal data about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it. You can also withdraw your consent, where this is the basis for our processing your data (without affecting the lawfulness of our previous processing based on consent).
  • request the transfer of your personal data to another party.

Please note that the above rights are not absolute, and we may be entitled to refuse requests where exceptions apply.
