Data Protection and Privacy Policy

The Thames Landscape Strategy keeps a data base of contacts, by those people that have indicated in the past that they would like to be kept informed of our activities. This has been compiled since 1996 and includes contacts received during the London’s Arcadia initiative. The contacts on the database are known as ‘The Friends of the Thames’.

The Thames Landscape Strategy works with the charity The Father Thames Trust whose charitable aim is to support the Thames Landscape Strategy.

The Thames Landscape Strategy holds some basic information about the Friends of the Thames in order to carry out our objectives and provide you with the services you would reasonably expect from a similar organisation. Mainly this is your name, address, email and (if given) telephone number so that we can keep you informed of what is happening. We believe this is what the new legislation refers to as a ‘legitimate interest’ and is essential in order for us to carry on the work that we do. Importantly we do not share your information with anyone, including the TLS partners outside of the Thames Landscape Strategy and our associated charity The Father Thames Trust who also will not share your information with anyone but The Thames Landscape Strategy. We also ensure the security of the data that we hold. Any financial information including bank details that is provided (for example if you have set up a standing order or donated to the TLS) is held only by the Father Thames Trust.
