LHCRT and your data security

We want to stay in touch with you - but we need your permission first!

Communicating with our members is vital but new General Data Protection Regulations mean we need your permission to stay in touch.

Please let us know how we can keep in touch with you, by filling in the form below. “We” and “Us” are the Lichfield & Hatherton Canals Restoration Trust and our trading subsidiary. You can change your preference at any time.

For more information about how your data is used read our Privacy Policy. We will never sell your data and we promise to keep your details safe and secure.

Privacy Policy


LHCRT is committed to protecting your privacy and security. This policy explains how and why we use your personal data, to ensure you remain informed and in control of your information.

From 1st April 2018 LHCRT is asking all members and supporters to “opt-in” for marketing communications. This is due to a change to the rules which govern how we can communicate with you and a new regulation on personal data (the General Data Protection Regulation) coming into force in May 2018. Therefore we are introducing a new approach that relies on you giving us your consent about how we can contact you. This means you’ll have the choice as to whether you want to receive these messages and be able to select how you want to receive them (email, phone, SMS or post).

You can decide not to receive communications or change how we contact you at any time. If you wish to do so, please contact members@lhcrt.org.uk

We will never sell your personal data, and if we share your personal data, it will only ever be with our partner organisations where necessary to provide services, and only then if we are certain that its privacy and security are guaranteed.

It’s important that you read the full policy to understand what information we hold, how we may use it, and what your rights are – but if you don’t have time to read it all now, here’s a quick summary:

    •   We collect information that is either personal data (email address, name, telephone number, postal address) or non-personal data (such as IP addresses, website pages accessed, etc)

    •   We collect information about members, 500 Club members, supporters, volunteers and website users.

    •  We collect information to provide goods, to provide information, to fundraise, for administration.

    •   We only collect the information that we need or that would be useful to us in our quest to provide the best possible service.

    •   We do our very best to keep personal information secure. (See sections 7 and 8 on how we protect and store your data.)

    •    We never sell your data and we will never share it with another company or charity for marketing purposes.

    •   We will not share your data, unless we are required by law or to organisations we work with where necessary to provide LHCRT services (such as for mailing of our magazine), and only then provided that the privacy and security of data is guaranteed. (See section 4.)

    •    Our website uses cookies – for more information check our cookies policy (See section 10).
