Disability Labour website privacy statement.
What personal information do we collect from the people that visit our website or Facebook page?
We may ask you to enter your name, email address, CLP or other details so that you can participate in campaigning. If you join or donate to Disability Labour, we will take details to ensure we can verify who you say you are, and that you are eligible to join us.
When do we collect information?
We collect information from you when you join us, make a donation, subscribe to a newsletter, respond to a survey, fill out a form or enter information on our site.
How do we use your information?
We use the information we collect from you to send information about our work.
How do we protect your information?
We do not use vulnerability scanning and/or scanning to PCI standards. We only provide articles and information. We never ask for credit card numbers. We use regular Malware Scanning. We do not use an SSL certificate because we do not sell anything so we don’t take any sensitive data.
We work closely with Disability Equality Act Labour and we share information with them. We share some information with the Labour Party, mainly to verify your Labour Party membership when you join us. We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer information to any other third parties.
We allow third party links for appropriate organisations. We do not include or offer any other third-party products or services on our website.
Constituency Labour Parties.
- We are processing the data we hold because we need to raise awareness of the Labour Party’s obligations towards disabled people under the Equality Act 2010.
- Disabled people benefit from us processing the data because we are informing Labour Party units about their rights.
- There is a wider public interest in us processing this data. In raising awareness about a political party’s Equality Act obligations towards disabled people we raise awareness of the rights of all disabled people in civil society.
- These benefits are vital to disabled people. Without raising awareness about Equality Act obligations change is unlikely to occur.
- If we could not continue to process the data we would not be able to communicate with Labour Party units.
- When we use this data it is not unethical or unlawful.
The necessity test:
- Processing this data is the only way we can raise awareness in Labour Party units.
- The way we process the data is the most reasonable way to achieve our aims above.
- There is no other way to achieve this.
The balancing test:
- The individuals whose data process are identified as elected officers of Labour Party units.
- None of the data we hold is sensitive. We do hold private email addresses for the sole purpose of communicating with elected officers of Labour Party units.
- It is reasonable for elected officers of the Labour Party to expect communications from organisations like ours.
- We are happy to explain this to the individuals whose data we process.
- Some people may complain about us processing this data. However we feel that arises from a misunderstanding about the nature of holding elected office in the Labour Party.
- There is no impact on the individual other than receiving important information about the obligations they have as elected officers of the Labour Party.
- This impact is minimal in the individual but could lead to important changes in policy and practice in Labour Party units.
- We do not process children’s data.
- Some individuals whose data we process may have mental health impairments. It is important we process their data as they will be elected officers in Labour Party units.
- We minimise the impact we have by focussing on the organisational responsibilities of elected officers in the Labour Party.
- We offer an opt-out.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act).
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, United States’ consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.
We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.
Do we let third-parties, including ad networks or plug-ins collect PII from children under 13?.
Fair Information Practices.
The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.
In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:
We will notify you via email
- Within 1 business day
We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
CAN SPAM Act.
The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.
We collect your email address in order to:
- Send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions.
To be in accordance with CANSPAM, we agree to the following:
- Not use false or misleading subjects or email addresses.
- Identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way.
- Include the physical address of our business or site headquarters.
- Monitor third-party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used.
- Honor opt-out/unsubscribe requests quickly.
