Data Protection

I’m sure that you will have been bombarded by numerous companies and organisations with regard to the new data protection regulations  (GDPR) that are coming into force on 25 May 2018. The Corton Denham Parish Council and its website are also affected by these changes. We would therefore like to draw your attention to the Parish Council’s updated Privacy Policy Statement on the Parish website ( cortondenham.org.uk ) which will govern how your personal data will be managed by the Parish Council in future. You also need to be aware that photographs of village events are sometimes posted on the Parish website and, should you wish to be excluded from these, you should notify the event organiser accordingly.
