Why we collect your Personal Information
Do you know what personal information is?
Personal information can be anything that identifies and relates to a living person. This can include information that when put together with other information can then identify a person.
Information we may collect about you may include (but is not limited to):
Date of birth
Computer IP address
Dependent Details (only where applicable)
We may at times need to share this information. We will only do this if we have your consent or if there are legal requirements for us to do so. We may receive information about you from other data controllers, such as the police who might tell us about a crime they are investigating where this impacts on your contract with us. If you give us this information about yourself when communicating with us, you do so because you consider it forms part of a legitimate interest for us to hold this information on our records.
If we ask for any sensitive personal data about you, we will always tell you why we need it and ask for your consent to hold it.
Why do we need your personal information?
We may need to use some information about you to:
How the law allows us to use your personal information
There are a number of legal reasons why we need to collect and use your personal information.
Generally we collect and use personal information for the purposes of where:
How we communicate with you
At HLPP Trust we believe in putting our customers in the driving seat when communicating. When we communicate with you we will do so either because it forms part of your contract with us, we have your consent or where we have a legitimate interest to communicate with you.
We have outlined our primary communication activities below, which tells you how we may communicate with you and how you can update your preferences.
Customer service communications
We may contact you or send communications to tell you about a service enhancement such as improvements to Hilsea Lido, our services or to keep you informed of your current booking status. We won’t need your consent to communicate with you this way because we have assessed that it forms part of our agreement with you. We will contact you through email and SMS for these service communications.
Customer communications may also include customer surveys as we feel understanding your experiences to help us improve the service we provide you forms an integral part of our relationship. We do not ask for your consent to contact you for these surveys as we have assessed that it is in our legitimate interest to contact you in this case. You can tell us to stop at any time – all our customer surveys will always contain an easy opt-out link.
Customer service communications via SMS/text messaging and calls
If you supply us with your telephone contact details, we may use them to call or send you operational text messages.
Examples of operational text messages include:
We only use what we need!
Where we can, we’ll only collect and use personal information if we need it to deliver a service or meet a requirement.
If we don’t need personal information we’ll either keep you anonymous if we already have it for something else or we won’t ask you for it. For example in a survey we may not need your contact details so we’ll only collect your survey responses.
If we use your personal information for research and analysis, we’ll keep you anonymous or use a different name unless you’ve agreed that your personal information can be used for that research.
We won’t sell your personal information to anyone else.
We will always provide an option for updating your marketing preferences on our communications with you.
What you can do with your information
The law gives you a number of rights to control what personal information is used by us and how it is used by us.
You can ask for access to the information we hold on you.
You have the right to ask for the information we have about you. When we receive a request from you in writing, we must give you access to what personal information we’ve recorded about you.
However, we can’t let you see any parts of a record which contain:
This applies to personal information that is in both paper and electronic records. If you ask us, we’ll also let others see your record (except if one of the points above applies).
A request for personal information can be made via email or in writing. This is known as a subject access request. In order to make a subject access request you will need to provide the following information:
If we have doubts about your identity or we are finding it difficult to locate your personal information we may ask you to provide us with proof of identity.
What types of documents could I submit as proof of ID?
You can write to us at the following address:
Data Protection Officer
Hilsea Lido Pool for the People Trust
If you are unable to make a request in writing, please contact us on 07903 823347.
We will not start your subject access request until we are satisfied that you have provided us with enough information for us to identify you.
Once you have made a request you will receive an acknowledgement and your request should be answered within one month. In certain circumstances, we are allowed to take longer but we will tell you if we feel we may need longer without undue delay from when we receive your request.
You can ask to change information you think is inaccurate
You should let us know if you disagree with something we may have recorded about you.
We may not always be able to change or remove that information but we’ll correct factual inaccuracies and may include your comments in the record to show that you disagree with it.
Please contact email@example.com and we can deal with your request
You can ask to delete information (right to erasure)
In some circumstances you can ask for your personal information to be deleted, for example:
Where your personal information has been shared with others, we’ll do what we can to make sure those using your personal information comply with your request for erasure.
Please note that we can’t delete your information where:
You can ask to limit what we use your personal data for
You have the right to ask us to restrict what we use your personal information for where:
We will assess whether you have a right to a restriction and where restriction of use has been granted, we’ll inform you before we carry on using your personal information.
Where possible we’ll seek to comply with your request, but we may need to hold or use information because we are required to by law or we have a legal basis to do so, such as a contract.
You can ask to have your information moved to another provider (data portability)
You have the right to ask for your personal information to be given back to you or another service provider of your choice in a commonly used format. This is called data portability.
However this only applies if we’re using your personal information with consent (not where we are processing your personal information for contractual, legitimate interests, legal obligations or vital interests as a legal basis) and if decisions were made by a computer and not a human being.
It’s likely that data portability won’t apply to most of the services you receive from HLPP.

When you contact us, we may ask you to provide us with some information so that we can confirm your identity. If other people (e.g. family members, support workers, solicitors) act on your behalf we will take steps to ensure that you have agreed for them to do so. This may include asking them to provide us with supporting information to indicate your consent. We do this to protect you and to make sure that other people cannot find things out about you that they are not entitled to know.
Employees and third parties who have access to, or are associated with the processing of, your personal information are obliged to make reasonable efforts to safeguard it.
How we use your telephone number
Text messages and contact via telephone provide a direct way to contact and share information with you about the services we can deliver to you. It can also help you to receive important messages about your booking, important site updates e.g. temporary closures and other services that we provide you.
If you provide your telephone number we may keep in contact with you by text.
Sharing your telephone number with third parties
We may share your telephone numbers if we are required to by law.
Who do we share your information with?
We may enter into partnerships with other organisations such as the police. In order to protect your information, we will enter into a legally binding data sharing agreement with partner organisations before any sharing takes place. It is not always possible for us to tell you that personal information is being shared, for example when we are working with the police or other agencies to help the investigation or detection of a crime as to do so may prejudice that investigation.
We are likely to share your personal information with the following:
We may share your personal information with the police for the purposes of preventing or detecting a crime or fraud.
We may need to share your personal information with support agencies if we suspect that there may be safeguarding concerns about yourself or those who are your dependent(s). We will not tell you about this beforehand, we will take steps to only share that personal information which is necessary for the safeguarding purposes.
We may share your personal information with our legal services or solicitors if we are preparing or defending a legal claim.
Although this is not an exhaustive list the following third parties process data on HLPP Trust’s behalf which may include your personal data for the specific purposes identified. HLPP Trust has appropriate contracts in place to ensure third party data processors comply with necessary regulations:
Sometimes we have a legal duty to provide personal information to other organisations, this is often because we need to give that data to the police, courts, local authorities or government bodies.
We may also share your personal information when we feel there’s a good reason that’s more important than protecting your privacy. This doesn’t happen often, but we may share your information:
If we’re worried about your physical safety or feel we need to take action to protect you from being harmed in other ways, we’ll discuss this with you and, if possible, get your permission to tell others about your situation before doing so.
For all of these reasons the risk must be serious before we can override your right to privacy.
We may still share your information if we believe the risk to others is serious enough to do so.
There may also be rare occasions when the risk to others is so great that we need to share information straight away.
If this is the case, we’ll make sure that we record what information we share and our reasons for doing so. We’ll let you know what we’ve done and why if we think it is safe to do so and will not cause harm, distress or further risks to you, our staff, other professionals and/or the public.
How do we protect your information?
We’ll do what we can to make sure we hold records about you (on paper and electronically) in a secure way, and we’ll only make them available to those who have a right to see them. Examples of our security include:
How long do we keep your personal information?
There’s often a legal or a contractual reason for keeping your personal information for a set period of time. We will keep your information for the duration of providing a service or product to you under the terms of a contract, such as your purchase contract. When your contract has ended we will keep your personal data for a set time for auditing and reporting purposes and for legitimate interest purposes, after that time we will either anonymise or destroy your information.
