Introduction
We protect your personal data in line with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR requires data controllers such as ourselves to document our lawful basis for processing personal data. It also gives you rights over how your data is processed. This privacy policy documents the data we collect, why and how we process it, and how to exercise your rights.

Data controller
The data controller responsible for this website is The AMITY CIRCLE Secretary for the Time Being, who can be contacted through the office of the Province of Hampshire & Isle of Wight, 85 Winchester Rd, Chandler's Ford, Eastleigh SO53 2GG.

Important to note is that this website may contain links to third-party websites, which have their own data controllers and privacy policies. This privacy policy you are reading applies specifically to this website.

Lawful basis for processing
For each method by which we collect personal data, this privacy policy documents our lawful basis for processing the data. Where we rely on your consent to process your data, we also explain how you can withdraw your consent and delete your data.

Individual rights
The GDPR gives you rights over how your personal data is processed. You can exercise your rights by contacting us. In some cases you can also exercise your rights through automated systems, as described at the relevant points in this privacy policy.

Security
The GDPR requires us to implement appropriate technical measures to protect data. We verify the identity of any individual who requests access to data before granting access. We use Transport Layer Security (TLS, also known as SSL) to encrypt any data you supply to us through our website. Additional technical measures are described at the relevant points in this privacy policy.

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), is a cryptographic protocol that provides communications security over a computer network. Several versions of the protocols find widespread use in applications such as web browsing, email, instant messaging, and voice over IP (VoIP). Websites are able to use TLS to secure all communications between their servers and web browsers. The SSL protocol aims primarily to provide privacy and data integrity between two or more communicating computer applications providing a data environment which is much more secure.

Disclosures
In addition to any sharing of data described elsewhere in this privacy policy, we may disclose data but will only do so other than for Masonic uses, if we are legally obliged to do so. If we suspect criminal activity however, we may disclose data relating to those involved or affected to the appropriate authorities. We may also be obliged to disclose data if we receive a request from an appropriate authority.

Changes to this privacy policy
We may occasionally make changes to this privacy policy. Following any changes, the date at the top of this privacy policy will be updated. If any change allows for wider access to data, such changes will only apply to data collected after the date of the updated privacy policy.

Cookies
Cookies are small pieces of text that are stored by your browser. Each cookie has a name and is associated with a particular site. When your browser sends a request to a site (for example, to download a page, image, or video), the computer that responds (known as a server) may tell your browser to set one or more cookies. When your browser makes further requests to the same site it sends the cookies back to the server. This allows the server to remember you as you browse the site, and provide features such as shopping baskets or password-protected areas. For more information on the cookies we use, see our cookie policy.
