The Data Controller is Cheshire LOC. The point of contact for Cheshire LOC is Sandie McBennett who can be contacted by email on or by phone on 07778 451886.

What information do we collect about you?

  • Your name, contact details and personal identifiers (such as your GOC/DO number)
  • Your relevant qualifications.

Lawful Basis for processing your data

Cheshire LOC retains your personal information in order to relay guidance and information to  contractors and performers on our mailing list who wishes to receive this information. The lawful basis for holding this information is legitimate interest. We will not sell or rent your information to third parties. We will not share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.

Access to your information and correction

You have legal rights in respect of the personal data we hold about you. The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has published guidance on the full range of rights. The rights that are most relevant to the way in which we use your personal data include:

  • The right to be informed about how we use personal data; this privacy notice gives that information.
  • The right to object: unless we are processing the data in respect of a legal claim or can otherwise show that our legitimate interest in processing the data overrides your rights and interests.
  • The right of access: if you ask us for the personal data we hold about you we will provide it within a month, free of charge (unless we have already provided it to you, in which case we may have to charge you the administrative cost of providing it again).
  • The right to rectification: if you ask us to correct personal data about you that is inaccurate or incomplete, we will do so within a month (unless we need longer, in which case we will discuss this with you). We will also contact other organisations that we have disclosed the data to unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort.
  • The right to erasure: also known as the ‘right to be forgotten’. If you ask us to delete your personal data, we will do so if there is no compelling reason to continue processing the data. Where we have disclosed the personal data to others, we will contact each recipient and inform them of the erasure, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort. If asked to, we will also inform the individuals about these recipients.

Where personal data has been made public in an online environment reasonable steps will be taken to inform other controllers who are processing the personal data to erase links to, copies or replication of that data, taking into account available technology and the cost of implementation.
