I am Labour’s candidate for the Rochford and Southend East Constituency. As your local Labour candidate it is important that I can keep in touch with you about my work, take up casework on your behalf and ask for views on local issues.
This page explains how I collect and use personal data and provides information about your rights in respect of your personal data.
Data collection and use
I will only collect and use personal information for the specific purpose for which it has been obtained.
If I undertake casework using personal information provided by or on behalf of a Rochford and Southend East constituent then it may be necessary for me to share your information with third party organisations. I will only share your information where it is necessary and reasonable to do so, and I will share only the minimum amount of personal information necessary in order to advocate on your behalf. Please see the “who I share your information with” section for further details.
When registering with this website or by completing a form or survey sent to you by me or my representatives, you may be asked for personal information. In each case, I will ask for your explicit consent to use your information and tell you what I will use it for prior to you giving consent.
I may communicate by post, email, phone or text message about my work and to give you the latest news on my campaigns and opportunities to get involved.
I will only send emails, texts or contact you by telephone where you have provided explicit consent for me to do so. You may withdraw your consent or unsubscribe at any time from any communication by contacting me on firstname.lastname@example.org or by using the unsubscribe option on my emails.
Who I share your information with:
If I take up casework on your behalf, it may be necessary for me to share the details you provide with local councillors, local authorities and other public bodies. I will only share as much information as is necessary to take your case forward. If you have any questions or concerns about how information you provide as part of a casework request is used, please contact me for more information.
Other than in the circumstances above, I will not share personal information with other organisations without your explicit consent.
Retention of personal data
I will only keep your personal information for as long as it is necessary to fulfil the purposes described in this policy. Information relating to casework will only be retained for as long as it is necessary, although I may retain information about closed cases in the event that you contact me again for help.
I will regularly review the personal information I hold to ensure that its use is necessary and proportionate.
Links to other websites:
This website may contain links to other websites. I am not responsible for the content or privacy practices of these websites.
You have a number of rights in relation to your personal information and how it is used. You can:
- Obtain copies of the personal information I hold about you – a “subject access request”
- Request that I correct or update any personal information held about you
- Ask that I erase or restrict the way in which I use your information
- Request that personal information you have given your consent for me to use is provided in an electronic format so it can be transferred to another data controller (also known as “data portability”)
You may opt out of receiving further communications from me at any time.
If you wish to exercise your rights in respect of your personal data or have any concerns about how your data is used, please contact me at 268 Sutton Road, Southend on Sea, Essex, SS2 5ET or on email@example.com
You also have right to raise any issues or concerns directly with the Information Commissioner’s Office.
