'Lawful basis for processing your data

 Processing your data is necessary for Fleetwood Market to perform a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of its official authority in accordance with Article 6(1)( e) of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).


Identifying Information

'Site' refers to the web address

In general, you can visit the Site without telling us who you are or providing any information about yourself. In some areas of the Site, we ask you to provide information that will enable us to process an order, offer services that require registration, assist you with technical support issues or to follow up with you.

Generally, Fleetwood Market requests identifying information when you are

•          Registering on our Site including creating a Customer and Trader login.

•          For Trader use only - signing up to the market directory.

•          Provide feedback/review to an online survey or subscribe to our mailing list

In these instances, Fleetwood Market will ask for your name, address, e-mail address, phone number and other appropriate information needed to provide you with these services. In all instances, if you receive a newsletter or other mailing from us, you will always have the ability to unsubscribe to these mailings at any time.

How we process your data

Wyre Council (The Data Controller) will only process and share your personal information to carry out the services which you have requested.

If you choose to give us personal data for any of the purposes above, this information is retained by Fleetwood Market and will only be used by Fleetwood Market to support your relationship with us. We will not add you to a mailing list, or newsletter without your registration for this service. We will only contact you if further information is required from you to complete a service.

How long we keep your personal data

 We will retain your personal data for five years following completion of the service. After this time paper documents will be shredded and the electronic records will be deleted. We only collect information for specific purposes. All data is kept securely and kept up to date where possible, if we no longer require certain data it is removed from our database.


How we share your data

We do not share, rent, or sell any personally identifying information provided through our Site (such as your name or email address) to any outside organisation for use in its marketing or solicitations.

From time to time Fleetwood Market may share your personal information with internal council departments and external organisations and agents or contractors to provide you with the services which have been requested. They will have access to your personal information to perform services for Fleetwood Market (such as DATABASE MAINTENANCE ), however, they are required by us to keep the information confidential and may not use it for any purpose other than to carry out their services.

To protect your privacy, we have designed the Site to include certain steps to verify your identity before granting you access or enabling you to make corrections in an account. You will always have access to this account information and can view it, update it or correct it at any time.
