The Aims of the Kettering Civic Society

The Civic Society was formed in 1969 to;
          encourage high standards of architecture and planning in Kettering
          stimulate public interest in the town and its surroundings
          encourage the preservation, development and features of public amenity and historic interest
          inspire a sense of civic pride.

The Civic Society is completely independent:
          Its income is derived entirely from voluntary subscriptions, contributed by public-spirited individuals and businesses
             - see Fundraising below
          It maintains close contact with local authorities, professional institutions and other civic amenity societies
          It works through exhibitions, discussions and

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) governs the holding of personal information.
We have a Data Privacy Policy that sets out how we handle your data and explains your rights under the law.
Registered Charity No: 1131165 - Disclaimer - Last updated 20/08/2019







Personal data relates to a living individual who can be identified from it (the ‘data subject’.) The processing of personal data (including use) is governed by the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) which will shortly be incorporated in a new Data Protection Act.

The Kettering Civic Society has a lawful basis for keeping and using the personal data of its members, as they have shown their consent by the affirmative action of joining the Kettering Civic Society and there is a contractual relationship. Holding the personal data of non-members on a mailing list serves the legitimate interests of the Kettering Civic Society in publicising its activities and seeking new members.

The Kettering Civic Society will therefore continue to hold and use the personal data of all individuals on its mailing list, unless they indicate a wish to be removed from it. It will also hold the personal data of individuals who apply for membership or agree to be on the mailing list in future.

Personal data of individuals is used -

The Kettering Civic Society complies with its obligations under the GDPR by keeping personal data up to date; by storing and destroying it securely; by not collecting or retaining excessive amounts of data; by protecting personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access and disclosure; and by ensuring that appropriate technical measures are in place to protect personal data.

All personal data will be treated as strictly confidential and will only be shared with other members of the Kettering Civic Society Society in order to carry out a service to other members or for purposes connected with its activities. It will not be shared with third parties except with the data subject’s consent; it will not be sold, and it will not be used for marketing.

Membership and mailing list data will be retained while it is still current; gift aid declarations and associated paperwork will be retained for 7 years after the tax year to which they relate. Other financial records will be retained for 6 years after the transaction they relate to.

If the Kettering Civic Society wishes to use personal data for a purpose not covered by this Data Privacy Policy, a new notice will be issued explaining the use, setting out the purpose and processing conditions and seeking the data subject’s consent.

Data subjects have the right -

The Data Controller is the Secretary.

Adopted 24th May 2018 - This policy will be reviewed every 2 years.
