Privacy Policy

What data do we collect, and how?

For those present at a Defend Our Juries action:
We may obtain contact details, names, email addresses, location information and other identifiers about activists, members of the public and the police present at actions. The personal data involved may be provided by the individual or provided by legal observers or others present at a protest from their personal observation, or it may be from other publicly accessible resources (like social and other media).

Otherwise: We may collect data that you give us by filling out a form, or by contacting us in another way – e.g. by phone, email or face to face. An example of this would be the  email address and name that you provide so that we can send email updates.

Why is this data collected and processed?

This processing is on the basis of our legitimate interests as an organisation in supporting individuals who have been involved with the campaign and keeping people up to date. It may also be on the basis of consent.

How will we use your data?

We’ll email general updates to those who have subscribed to our mailing list, and occasionally send information to those who have specifically indicated their interest about opportunities to get involved. For people who have been directly involved with the campaign, we may also get in touch about support systems.

How do we, and our data partners store your data?

We ensure that all personal data is subject to access controls, and is stored securely. We primarily use Action Network to store data.

Who we might share your personal data with?

In normal circumstances we do not share your data with anyone. Where it is necessary, for example if a person has been unexpectedly arrested, we may share personal data in the following ways:

  • with trusted individuals supporting people at police stations.
  • with other trusted groups or solicitors offering support.

We endeavour to ensure there is consent to the sharing of personal data from the key individual but the sharing of relevant personal information about other people present at a protest is based on the legitimate interests of the CASP Legal Support Team, who support those taking nonviolent direct action.

How long do we keep your personal data?

We will only keep this data for as long as is necessary to meet our legitimate interests described above.
