Cratus is processing your data, in the UK, on behalf of our client, for the purposes of community / political engagement, community / political consultation and / or research.
There are six lawful grounds on which we can process data. The relevant one in this instance is:
We will usually collect your name, email address and phone number and, if relevant, information about your organisation, including the name of your organisation and region as well as any history that is relevant in that it might have a bearing on the project.
Certain categories of personal information are categorised as sensitive, including health information, ethnicity and political opinions. We may collect sensitive personal data about you. We would only collect sensitive personal data if there is a clear reason for doing so; and on the basis that our processing relates to personal data which has been manifestly made public by you as the data subject.
We will only ever share your information with the project team and the relevant Local Planning Authority, should our processing be part of a planning application.
As a resident your data is only shared showing your street name and feedback.
As a councillor if you are responding to a consultation on a planning project we will share your name in connection to your views.
If you are providing feedback on behalf of a community group or parish council for example we will share the name of that body with the consultant team.
We may also share your data with our third-party service providers, agents, subcontractors and other associated organisations for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you (for example, our sister company Rubber Duckiee or our preferred printers – V3Print).
These third parties have access to your Personal Information only to perform these specific tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.
We will disclose your Personal Information where required to do so by law or in accordance with an order of a court of competent jurisdiction, or if we believe that such action is necessary to comply with the law and the reasonable requests of law enforcement or to protect the security or integrity of our Service.
Your information, including Personal Information, may be transferred to — and maintained on — computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ than those from your jurisdiction. This is because we work with trusted suppliers, for example Mailchimp and Dropbox which are US companies.
Security of your data is important to us and is maintained on password protected systems, our computers are protected by Symantec.
We will minimise your data as far as possible. If you are responding to a consultation on a project / application that is the first phase or one of many phases of a wider regeneration scheme, then we will keep your information on file until all phases are complete, so we can update you as to the progress of future phases as and when they come forward.
If not, your data will be kept on our system for the duration of the scheme progressing through planning and for up to one year after the signing of the S106 agreement so that if necessary we can update you with key information following any grant of planning consent.
Should we be processing your data on behalf of a client for the purposes of research we will keep it on our system for a maximum of ten years, as far as possible information will be minimised.
