How can you ask for data to be removed, limited or corrected?

Those who have contacted the Committee about hosting a stall or volunteering etc will receive emails about future events and other matters of interest. There are various ways in which individuals can limit how their data is used:

  • they may choose not to provide us with an email address and/or telephone number, though this will limit the services that the Committee is then able to provide

  • Individuals may specify that they do not wish to receive Committee emails, though once again, this will cut them off from future events and activities. They may do this when they initially contact us, or at any other time by contacting the Committee via email at

Any individual who has reason to believe that the information we hold about them is incorrect has the right to have it corrected and should contact the Committee via email at

We normally keep members’ data for 2 years after they initially contact us in case they wish to participate in future events. However, we will delete any individual’s contact details before that on request.

Can you download your data to use it elsewhere?

No, the data is stored on the personal computers of Committee members.
