What is personal data?
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual and from which that individual can be directly or indirectly identified. It does not include information where your identity has been removed (anonymised information).
What personal data do we collect and why?
Why do we store your data?
Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the lawful bases we rely on for processing this information are:
(A) Consent – LENS relies on your consent to process your personal data. This will be made expressly clear and we will ask you to volunteer the information – for example, to subscribe to the newsletter, or to register for an event.
(B) Legitimate interests – examples of such processing include (but are not limited to):
~ Hosting data in the cloud;
~ Updating your details and preferences;
~ Planning, evaluation and reporting for LENS and its members.
How do we store your data?
How long do we store your data?
LENS will retain your personal data so long as it is necessary to fulfil the purposes it was collected it for. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
In some circumstances LENS may anonymise your personal data so that it can no longer be associated with you, in which case LENS may use such information without further notice to you.
What are your data protection rights?
In accordance with Articles 15 et seq. of the GDPR, you have the right to request access to and rectification, portability and erasure of your personal data, as well as to object to and/or restrict the processing of data about you. If you wish to exercise these rights, or if you require any information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition, the Applicable Data Protection Legislation gives you the right to file a complaint with your local supervisory authority (depending on your place of residence, your place of employment or the place of infringement on data protection law).
