Reading’s Talking News Privacy Policy (listeners)

This policy is written in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulations 2018. Under the General Data Protection Regulation 2018 the Reading’s Talking news must let you know how we use and protect your personal data. The legal basis for this is called ‘Legitimate Interest’ and it allows us to use your data in a way that you would reasonably expect us to, but which does not override your interests in any way.

We respect your privacy and remain committed to responsible communications. Your details are the only personal data we have for you. It is stored in a secure database and the address labels are also stored in a secure location when not in use. Having left our premises, the address labels are then under the care and protection of Royal Mail and we will never pass them on or sell them. However, under the General Data Protection Regulations there is a legal duty to pass information to third party organisations such as the police, the Department of Work and Pensions and anti-fraud agencies for the purpose of preventing and detecting crime.

We reserve the right to share your personal information if we are legally obliged to and to enable us to apply to our terms and conditions and other agreements. This includes exchanging information with other organisations for preventing fraud and detecting crime.
