Why we collect it
The Rodbourne Community History Group [RCHG] exists to help people remember Rodbourne’s past. To do this we allow people to add comments, including people’s names, and photographs to our website. Comments and photographs are all screened before they are published to avoid obscenities and ensure they are in keeping with the aims of the Group. If you would like your name removed from any entry please contact email@example.com
We are obliged to keep some data for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Who we share your data with
All information submitted is processed by 1&1 Ionos [our web-hosting company] and by Oikos Digital Ltd. [our web developer].
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely.
What rights you have over your data

Where we send your data
Visitor comments are checked through an automated spam detection service.
All information from memories, comments on memories, photographs, membership renewals and contact form submissions will be stored with 1&1 Ionos [our web-hosting company] in the German EU Data Centre. Some of these things may also be sent via email and will be stored by 1&1’s email systems.
