How We Share Personal Data

We never sell or otherwise disclose your personal data, subject to some specific exceptions:

If we collect or update your personal data following an event or initiative that we deliver in partnership with another organisation, we would only share the data with that partner with your explicit consent.

We may share your personal data with service providers, employees or contractors that we have retained to perform services or work on our behalf. They are provided only with the personal data they need to perform their functions and can only use and disclose such personal data as is necessary to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements.

If we have agreed to conduct activity that promotes our businesses, or other services that you provide, or that highlights work or activity that you are undertaking, we may share your name, your job title, the name of your employer and your image. We may also share your professional contact details in circumstances where people will need to contact you, for our activity to be meaningful.

In addition, we may disclose your personal data (i) if we are required to do so by law or legal process, (ii) to law enforcement authorities or other government officials, or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity, or (iiii) with similar neighbouring crime prevention schemes if there is evidence that you have participated in, or are likely to participate in any threat or damage to property, staff and customers in areas outside the Shrewsbury Watch’s area of operation.

How we get Consent

Consent is specific to distinct purposes. Silence, pre-ticked boxes or inactivity does not constitute consent; data subjects explicitly opt-in to the storage, use and management of their personal data. Separate consent is obtained for different processing activities, which means data subjects are clear about how the data will be used when you obtain consent.
