7. Disclosure of your information
We may disclose information to third parties if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal

other agreements or to protect the rights, property, or safety of The Cobnor Activities Centre Trust ,
our customers, or others.

Apart from the circumstances above, we will never share your personal data with third parties without
your explicit consent to do so.

8. Your rights – direct marketing
You have the right to prevent your personal data being processed for direct marketing (which includes
fundraising communications). You may exercise this right at any time by communicating your wish to
do so in writing (either email or hard copy) to The Cobnor Activities Centre (details below).

When you have requested the above, we aim to stop contacting you immediately; in exceptional
cases, this may take up to 28 days from receiving the notice in the case of email communications, or
two months in the case of post.

When exercising this right, it will aid the administrative process if you include in your message’s
subject line the word “unsubscribe”, your name and the address/email by which you were contacted.
All fundraising communications from The Trust will contain further details on how to do this. We will
also make every effort to act on such requests made via telephone, although we do not recommend
this method as it may complicate the administrative process and lead to errors.

If you wish to opt out as described above, but do not have an email to reply to (e.g. you were
contacted by post, but wish to opt out by email), you may do so by sending an email specifying your
name and email address, with “unsubscribe” in the subject line, to sail@cobnor.com You may also
opt out by phone (01243 572791), or by sending a letter to that effect to Cobnor Activities Centre
Trust, Cobnor Point, Chidham, West Sussex PO18 8TE.

Basic information (i.e. your name, relevant contact details, and date on which you requested no
further contact) may be be held on our in-house suppression list, to ensure that you are not contacted
in the future by accident.

This practice is in accordance with the Information Commissioner’s guidance regarding Direct
Marketing practice. This list is purely for internal administrative purposes, and will never be shown to
a third party under any circumstances. In addition, if you feel your rights as an individual under the Act
or other legislation have been infringed, you have the right to complain at any time to the appropriate
supervisory authority (this will generally be the Information Commissioner’s Office or, in some cases,
the Fundraising Regulator).

9. Your rights – access to information
The Act gives you the right to access information held about you. Your right of access can be
exercised in accordance with the Act. Any access request may be subject to a fee to meet our costs
in providing you with details of the information we hold about you. You may make the request in
writing (either email or hard copy) to The Cobnor Activities Centre Trust (details below). Within 40
days of receipt of this request, you will be sent a summary of:

 Whether any personal data is being processed;
 What personal data is held, the reasons it is being processed, and whether it will be given
to any other organisations or people;
 You will also be sent a copy of the information, comprising the personal data held, and
given details of the source of the data (where available). If you submit your request via
email, please send it to sail@cobnor.com , with the phrase “Subject “Access Request” in
the subject line. Sending it without this wording or to an alternative email address, such
as that of an individual member of staff, will delay action to your request

We will report any unlawful data breach of this website’s database or the database(s) of any of our
third party data processors, to any and all relevant persons and authorities within 72 hours of the
breach if it is apparent that personal data stored in an identifiable manner has been stolen.

appropriate, notified to you by e-mail. The accuracy of your individual information is important to us.
