We are Living Streets (the Pedestrians’ Association), a charitable company limited by guarantee (company number 5368409). Under the Data Protection Act 2018, we are a ‘controller’, which means that we collect information about you when you engage with us and we determine how that information is used.
Whenever we obtain your personal information, we will treat that information in accordance with this policy and in accordance with the law.
The provision of your personal information to us is voluntary. However, without providing us with your personal information, your use of our services or your interaction with us may be impaired. For example, you will be unable to access our members’ services.
USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We collect personal information about you when you provide it to us:
When we obtain your personal information we have legal obligations towards you when we use your information
This personal information may include details such as your name, address, mobile number, email address, or the amount you have donated.
The personal information we collect about you may be used by Living Streets for the following purposes:
The Data Protection Act 2018 requires us to rely on one or more lawful bases to use your personal information. We consider the grounds listed below to be relevant:
The Data Protection Act 2018 allows us to collect and process your personal information if it is reasonably necessary to achieve our or others’ legitimate interests (as long as that processing is fair, balanced and does not unduly impact your rights).
In broad terms, our “legitimate interests” means the interests of running Living Streets as a charitable entity and pursuing our aims and ideals such as achieving a better walking environment and inspiring people to walk more.
When we process your personal information to achieve such legitimate interests, we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative), and your rights under data protection laws. We will not use your personal information for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you, for example where use would be excessively intrusive (unless, for instance, we are otherwise required or permitted to by law).
If you choose to provide your personal details to Living Streets you agree that your personal information may be displayed as set out above.
If you are notified on a Living Streets site that your information may be used to allow Living Streets to contact you for "service administration purposes", this means that Living Streets may contact you for a number of purposes related to the service you have signed up for. For example, we may wish to provide you with password reminders or notify you that the particular service has been suspended for maintenance.
We will not contact you for promotional purposes, such as notifying you of new services from Living Streets unless you specifically agree to be contacted for such purposes at the time you submit your information on the site, or at a later time if you sign up specifically to receive such promotional information.
DISCLOSURE OF AND SHARING YOUR INFORMATION
In general, any information you provide to Living Streets will only be used within Living Streets and by its agents and service providers.
Your information will only be disclosed where we are obliged or permitted by law. If you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on or to Living Streets or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on Living Streets, Living Streets can use whatever information that is available to it about you to stop such behaviour. This may involve informing relevant third parties such as your employer, school, e-mail/Internet service provider and law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour.
RETENTION OF YOUR INFORMATION
Unless still required in connection with the purpose(s) for which it was collected and/or processed, we will remove your personal information from our records six years after the date it was collected. However, if before that date (i) your personal information is no longer required in connection with such purpose(s), (ii) we are no longer lawfully entitled to process it or (iii) you validly exercise your right of erasure, we will remove it from our records at the relevant time.
If you request to receive no further contact from us, we will keep some basic information about you on our suppression list in order to comply with your request and avoid sending you unwanted materials in the future.
We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018.

WHAT IS A COOKIE?
A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a website's computer and stored on your computer's hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
Many sites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows. Cookies record information about your online preferences. Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these, of course, means that certain personalised services and member only content cannot then be provided to that user and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all of Living Streets features.
Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences. If you have set your computer to reject cookies you can still browse Living Streets anonymously until such time as you wish to register for Living Streets services. For further information on cookies please visit https://www.aboutcookies.org.
TYPES OF COOKIE
There are essentially two types of cookie. "Session" cookies and "persistent" cookies. Session cookies carry essential data from page to page during a unique visit to a site. When you close your browser or if you are inactive on the site for a period of more than 30 minutes, your computer will automatically delete any session cookies placed on your computer.
This site uses session cookies. If you are not a member of the site, only one session cookie is used and it tells the site that you are not an authenticated member of the site. If you are a member of the site and have logged in, there are more session cookies placed on your computer which maintain your login status and save your username and password temporarily.
Persistent cookies carry information between visits to a site. Some sites use persistent cookies to track your behaviour within a site, or they allow 3rd parties to place cookies on your machine when adverts are viewed. You may be told that this enables the advertising delivery agencies to better tailor the adverts they deliver to your areas of interest. This site DOES NOT use persistent cookies in this way.
SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION
Living Streets takes reasonable steps to ensure the security of all information it collects, including that the information is protected from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. This includes financial details related to donations which are processed by third party providers.
Your personal information is maintained in a secure environment, which can be accessed only by authorised personnel. However, no data transmission over the internet or information stored on servers accessible through the internet can be guaranteed to be fully secure, therefore any donations or purchases you make through our website are at your own risk.
exercising your RIGHTS
Where we rely on your consent to use your personal information, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. This includes the right to ask us to stop using your personal information for marketing or fundraising purposes or to unsubscribe from our email list at any time. You also have the following rights:
We may ask you for additional information to confirm your identity and for security purposes, before disclosing personal information requested to you.
Please note that some of these rights only apply in limited circumstances. For more information, we suggest that you contact us.
You are further entitled to make a complaint about us or the way we have processed your personal information to the data protection supervisory authority in your home country. In the UK, the data protection authority is the Information Commissioner’s Office – www.ico.org.uk. For further information on how to exercise this right, please contact us
Please address requests to exercise your rights above or find out more to our data protection contact at Living Streets, 4th Floor, Universal House, 88-94 Wentworth Street, London, E1 7SA (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org)

INFORMATION THAT WE COLLECT FROM YOU
We may also collect information about your usage of our online application, as well as information about you from messages you post to the online application and e-mails or letters you send to us.
Personal details which you enter during registration are for monitoring purposes only and will not be connected with individuals contact details.
USE OF YOUR INFORMATION
USE OF TRAVEL DATA YOU HAVE PROVIDED
When using the online application to record how pupils have travelled, data will be recorded anonymously so that it cannot be associated with an individual child, unless your school has chosen to add name tags which clearly identify individuals. Your school's data can be accessed by those in your school with access to the admin section of the online tool and can be analysed at aggregated class, year group and whole school levels. This data is also accessible by us, to help with our monitoring, evaluation and analysis of the walk to school intervention, and by your school governing authority.
Your school's information and travel data may be shared with third parties for the purposes of evaluation and to measure the impact of the application and associated walk to school interventions, subject to our authorisation. Third parties may include evaluation agencies, researchers, local sector public bodies and UK government departments. We will not share any names or individual contact information of people at your school.
We may also use your travel data to help us promote the online application and our walk to school intervention, but for this purpose we will use information only at school level, not class or individual level, unless authorised by your school.
OTHER DISCLOSURE OF YOUR AND YOUR SCHOOL'S INFORMATION
Apart from the purposes specified elsewhere in this agreement, and unless required to do so by law, we will not share, sell or distribute any of the information you provide to us without your consent. We will have access rights to your data, but will not have access to individual children's information, that can be linked back to that child. Individual children will not be able to be identified from the information entered, unless your school has chosen to add name tags which clearly identify them. The name tag feature is not intended to be used with full pupil names - initials, nickname or first name only is recommended.
All comments, queries and requests relating to our use of your information are welcomed and should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org
