Central Mersey LOC Privacy notice

Central Mersey LOC collects and processes personal data of local contractors and performers. We take seriously our data protection obligations and are committed to being transparent about how and why we collect our data.


The Data Controller is Central Mersey LOC. The point of contact for Central Mersey LOC is with our secretary Mr Ian White who can be contacted by email on [email protected].


Central Mersey LOC retains personal information for the purpose of distributing guidance and information to contractors and performers within the Central Mersey area. In addition, we will use personal data for the purposes of promoting and running our CET events. We will not sell or rent your information to third parties. We will not share your information with third parties for marketing purposes. We may forward to you details of events being run by third parties which we consider may be of interest.

The lawful basis for holding and processing data is ‘Legitimate Interest’, in addition LOC representative’s data may be processed on a ‘Contractual’ basis.


Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) you have certain legal rights in respect of the personal data we hold about you. These rights are summarised below and further information can be found at the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) website at https://ico.org.uk

  • The right to be informed about how we use personal data; this privacy notice gives that information.
  • The right of access: if you ask us for the personal data we hold about you we will provide it within a month, free of charge (unless we have already provided it to you, in which case we may have to charge you the administrative cost of providing it again).
  • The right to rectification: if you ask us to correct personal data about you that is inaccurate or incomplete, we will do so within a month (unless we need longer, in which case we will discuss this with you). We will also contact other organisations that we have disclosed the data to unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort.
  • The right to erasure: also known as the ‘right to be forgotten’. If you ask us to delete your personal data, we will do so if there is no compelling reason to continue processing the data. Where we have disclosed the personal data to others, we will contact each recipient and inform them of the erasure, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort. If asked to, we will also inform the individuals about these recipients. Where personal data has been made public in an online environment reasonable steps will be taken to inform other controllers who are processing the personal data to erase links to, copies or replication of that data, taking into account available technology and the cost of implementation.
  • The right to restrict processing; if you request us to restrict processing this allows us to hold your data but not process it. This is often a temporary measure. We will also contact other organisations that we have disclosed the data to unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort.
  • The right to object: if you object to us processing your data we will stop processing it unless we are processing the data in respect of a legal claim or can otherwise show that our legitimate interest in processing the data overrides your rights and interests.


  • Please speak to us first if you have any questions or concerns about the way in which we process personal data. You can contact Ian White (see details above).
  • You have the right to complain to the ICO if you have a concern about our handling of your personal data. https://ico.org.uk/concerns/ or calling 0303 123 1113.
