Data Protection

Privacy statement

from Heage Windmill. Charity No. 1065980

Heage Windmill need to inform you that in the light of the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), in force from 25th May 2018 we will collect only that information which is necessary to make contact or keep in touch. Under the new rules it is necessary to opt in and any previous signatures on forms cannot be counted as giving us permission so we are requesting that you fill in a new form.

In the future membership forms will request a signature for permission.

It will be necessary to complete and return a copy of the General Data Protection Regulations form on this site. This can be scanned and sent to or post it to the Secretary, c/o 3, Elmwood Drive, Alfreton, DE55 7QJ, or dropped in at Heage Windmill.

Please note: As the Mill does not have a letter-box we are not able to receive items through the mail to the Mill.

If at any time you no longer wish to receive information from us or wish to correct your details please contact the secretary at the above address or e-mail

We at Heage Windmill want to reassure you that we do not pass your information on to other sites nor do we receive information from other sites. The only information is collected directly from you. All information is stored securely.

However, the Trustees’ information has to be passed to the Charity Commission – this is Trustees only.

We thank you for bearing with us on this issue as the new rules have to be in force by 25th May 2018. This is a legal requirement. If we do not have a reply from you by that date regrettably we will no longer be able to e-mail information to you, including the Grist. Membership details are kept on a secure data base and the details will be kept no longer than 2 years after your membership expires with the exception of gift aid signatures.

Please note our normal form of communication is by e-mail in order to keep costs down. However, where necessary we will post items.

CCTV – At the Mill CCTV recordings are made for security purposes. Individuals have the right to request a copy of any CCTV footage in which they are in focus and clearly identifiable.
