Privacy Policy

Deal Maritime & Local History Museum is a membership organisation so we need to hold information about our supporters and other people who are in contact with us as described below.

Website

Data about access to pages on our website is collected for statistical analysis. That data is anonymous so does not contain any personal data about you.

Newsletter

You will be sent our newsletter known as “The Moorings,” unless you ask us not to. Your details will never be passed to any other organisation and we will not make public your subscription to our newsletter.

Social Media

If you choose to follow us on social media, the fact that you do so may appear in your profile – whether that is the case depends on your settings and which social media service you are using. We will never publicise the fact that you are following us.

Membership

If you become a supporter of the museum, we ask for your name and address & email address in order to send you our newsletter. We also ask you to provide a telephone number in case there is any query about your membership.

Those details are held securely by our Membership Secretary and only available to those officers of the museum who need to access them. Your details will never be passed to any other organisation and we will not make public your membership.

Artefact & Archive Donations

If you donate an object or archive material to the museum we ask you to complete an object entry form which details the conditions under which the donation is made and ownership. We keep these forms to identify the history of the donation and the forms are not used for any other purpose.  Access to the forms is restricted to the trustees responsible for object entry only.
