Who we are
We are the South Cambridgeshire Conservative Association (SCCA), a part of the Conservative and Unionist Party, commonly known as the Conservative Party (The Party). As such we are a part of the ‘wider Conservative family’ referred to in the privacy notice published on our website – this privacy notice should be read in conjunction with it, available at www.southcambridgeshireconservatives.org.uk/privacy; we process data and comply with the standards as set out in that policy.
We undertake our own local campaigning and fundraising activities, and for these we are the data controller. For membership matters and some campaigning we are a data processor acting on behalf of the Party.

How we protect your data
The security of your data is paramount to us, and as such we ensure appropriate technical and organisational measures are in place to protect it. We constantly review our measures to ensure your data is protected from any threats that may emerge.
Your rights over your data
Right of access to your data
You have the right to request a copy of your personal information we hold. This is commonly known as a ‘Subject access request’.
We follow the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) ‘Subject access code’ when dealing with requests for access to personal data. You can read this code by visiting https://ico.org.uk/your-data-matters/your-right-of-access.
Right of rectification of your data
You have the right to request that inaccurate or incomplete information we hold about you is corrected.
Right to be forgotten
In certain circumstances you can ask for the data we hold about you to be erased from our records. When we do so, we keep the bare minimum of your information in order to continue to respect your wishes when your personal data is next provided to us by a local authority, which is at least annually.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request we restrict the processing of your data where you are contesting the accuracy of the data or when the data has been unlawfully processed.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have the data we hold about you transferred to a third party organisation and you can ask we provide it in a machine readable format.
Right to object
You have a right to opt out of your data being used for direct marketing.
If we process your data on the basis of ‘legitimate interests’ or ‘a task carried out in the public interest’, then you have the right to object to us using your data in that way. This right is not absolute and we may continue to process your data if we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing.
Automated individual decision-making, including profiling
We may use computer software to make decisions about you or to create a profile about you. You have the right not to be subject to such a decision or to that profiling where it creates legal effects concerning you or where it significantly affects you.
Making a complaint
If you are unhappy with the way we have processed or handled your data, you have a right to complain to our Party headquarters:
Conservative Campaign Headquarters
