WGCG Privacy Statement – site conservation

The Group constitution states that the conservation of geological sites within Warwickshire and educating people about them are prime functions of the Group.

In order to achieve those aims we will seek to ascertain the details of the ownership of any sites that are considered as being of geological significance. We will also seek to obtain the contact details of the person who can permit access to the site. Such personal data will be treated as being given by consent and as such can be asked to be removed from our database at any time. We will seek to hold such data for as long as the site is considered to be of value. We will contact the persons named on the site files at least every five years to ensure the information is up to date and to reaffirm your consent to hold the data.

Information on site ownership and access arrangements will be shared only with the appropriate Group management teams and with the planning authority relevant to that site location. Your data will not be sold or shared with any other body or person.

If you have any queries about our privacy policies please email the Secretary on warwickshiregcg@gmail.com
