What information will we collect?

We will collect, store and use your information as a necessary part of delivering the Our Streets Chorlton project for the Chorlton Climate Action Partnership. 

We will not use your information for purposes beyond this except where you have explicitly provided information for that purpose. 

We will only collect and store the information that you choose to provide to us, which will typically include data such as your name, email address and postcode. 

We are also keen to understand who we are engaging with, so we may collect further information from you such as your gender, religion and ethnicity. This will not be mandatory, so if you do not want to provide that information, you don’t have to. 

We may collect such data through our online engagement tool, in-person conversations or through digital communication methods. 

How will we use the information we collect?

We would like to use the information that you are providing to us to contact you with information about our project; this may be events or activities that may be of interest to you. We take your privacy very seriously and will not pass your details on to anybody outside of the partnership organisations named above. Only anonymised and pseudonymised data will be shared within the partnership and its stakeholders.

We will keep your personal data only for the duration of the Our Streets Chorlton project. After the completion of this project, individual responses to online engagement opportunities e.g. surveys or questionnaires, will be aggregated, and summary statistics generated. Individual responses will, at this point, be securely deleted. Where you have provided additional information allowing us to contact you, this will be retained.

How will your information be stored?

We will keep your personal data up to date and store it securely. We will put appropriate technical measures in place to protect it from loss, misuse, unauthorised access and disclosure, and not collect or retain excessive amounts of personal data. Examples of when we ask for information are:

  • Online Engagement Platform – The information you provide will be stored securely within Commonplace. Please see their privacy policy for further clarification ( ). This database will not be accessed by anybody outside of the Chorlton Climate Action Partnership, nor Commonplace, and will be used in the analysis of the data and aggregated and anonymised.
  • Booking onto an event – If we ask you to book onto an event, the information you provide will be stored securely within our database so we can track who attends our events. This will not be accessed by anybody outside of the Chorlton Climate Action Partnership. 
  • Volunteering Opportunity – If a volunteering activity or event is hosted by a partner e.g. Data Champion workshop, hosted by Open Data Manchester; the data they collect from you will be stored securely as outlined in an individual partner’s privacy policy.

In all of these cases, our processing of your personal data relies on your consent. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. We may share your data between organisations within the Our Streets Chorlton project partnership, but you will not be contacted regarding any services you have not requested or signed up for.
