neighbourly.com ("we" and "us") are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. neighbourly.com is the trading name of Neighbourly Limited.
Under the UK General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Data Protection Act 2018 (the Act) and related laws, we have a legal duty to protect the personal information we collect from you. GDPR says that ‘personal data’ is any information relating to a living individual who can be identified, either directly or indirectly, from that information. This could include your name, email address, postal address or telephone number, or information collected online and used to identify you.
For the purpose of the Act, the GDPR and any subsequent UK data protection legislation the ‘Data Controller’ for data that we collect from you is Neighbourly Limited, Engine Shed, Station Approach, Bristol, BS1 6QH. As Data Controller, we are responsible for, and control, the processing of your personal data for the purposes of Neighbourly’s services.
We may collect and process the following data about you:
Information that you provide by filling in forms on our site neighbourly.com (our site). This includes information provided at the time of registering to use our site, to complete your profile, subscribing to our service, posting material or requesting further services. We may also ask you for information when you enter a competition or promotion sponsored by us, and when you report a problem with our site or when you contact us.
Our site will use the postcode that you provide to us at the time of registration to record your given location which is held privately. Your Neighbourly profile (name and biography if added) can be seen by people viewing the website. Making your profile private will hide your image and biography from any other users. Your name will appear as your first name and the first letter of your last name. Your contact information is not made available to the public but may be shared with a charity/community group leader who is running a volunteer event or activity you are involved in.
GDPR identifies certain sensitive information as ‘special category data’, which requires additional protection e.g. information relating to health, ethnic origin and religious beliefs. We will not ask you to provide any special category data to us when you register with our site. You may voluntarily provide special category information in the free-text ‘Notes’ section when registering to participate in a particular volunteering activity e.g. information relating to a health condition. This information may be shared with a charity/community group who is running the event or activity you wish to participate in, if necessary to facilitate your participation.
If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence.
We may also ask you to complete surveys that we use for research purposes, although you do not have to respond to them.
