1.YOUR RIGHT TO VIEW ANY PERSONAL DATA THAT LMNA HOLDS ABOUT YOU
This is the Opt-in information age. All personal details on file about you are those submitted for the purposes that you intended when you gave it to the LMNA. The Data Protection laws give you the right to access information held about you, if any is held. Any access request may be subject to a fee of up to $20 to meet costs in providing you with details of the information (if any) that is held about you and any information request must be accompanied by acceptable proof of your identity. We don’t just give your data to anyone who asks for it. It may very well cost nothing to provide that information to you, it depends upon the complexity involved. We’ll likely verify important or complex instructions with you by voice and possibly formal letter.
Please note that any personal digital and paper information you provided us is secured carefully. We recognize that it’s our duty of care to treat any private data that we may hold about you responsibly.
2.YOUR RIGHT TO HAVE SOME OR All DATA WE MAY HOLD ABOUT YOU DELETED OR ALTERED
In the event that you’d like some or all your data changed or deleted, please make your request to LMNA in writing and if LMNA has any of your data and you provide acceptable proof of your identity then we'll serve your request faithfully.
3.YOUR RIGHT TO MOVE YOUR DATA OFF OUR SERVER
If there's data on this website or our blog about you that you want moved off it, then please contact us and we’ll help get it moved online, or removed online or offline as you wish and the case merits.
4. INFORMATION IN EVENT OF DATA SECURITY BREACH
Data breaches can happen to even large organizations such as banks and govt. offices. If LMNA Officers become aware of theft or loss of any of your personal data from hacking or equipment failure or any other possibility then we shall endeavor to alert you as soon as possible. Please alert us if you become aware of such a risk, such as a lost notebook or lap-top that would necessarily have security implications for us. You are entitled to be alerted within 72 hrs by GDPR rules, but we’d try to notify you quicker if possible and arrange the resetting of passwords and any other remedial action that might help. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you notice anything suspicious about the operation of LMNA sites that we have had made or manage. Thank you.
5. YOUR RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE KIND OF DATA THAT WE HOLD ABOUT YOU.
You can object if we hold some data about you that we don't have a justifiable legal case to obtain or retain.
LMNA only retains the information necessary to fulfil its legally justifiable roll as an environmental education and conservation NPO and to describe its activity. That is the legal basis for any information collection.
We hope that you can use LMNA website safely and with confidence.
Thank you very much for your attention.
