Privacy: 
  • Republic respects your rights in relation to your privacy and data.  The law provides you with the following rights:

The right to be informed

  • You have the right to know how we manage your data, what data we collect, why we collect it and how we use it.  Republic is required to provide this information in a concise, transparent, intelligible and easily accessible format.  The information must be written in clear and plain language and must be free of charge. 
  • This privacy notice is how Republic informs you of these matters.

The right of access

The right to rectification

  • You have the right to have personal data rectified if it is inaccurate or incomplete.  If you think we’re holding information that is incorrect please email enquiries@republic.org.uk or write to Republic, 20-22 Wenlock Road, London N1 7GU.

The right to erasure

  • You have the right to request Republic deletes all your data and in effect ‘forgets’ you completely.  There are some instances in which Republic is permitted to refuse such a request or partially delete your data, but wherever possible we will endeavour to comply with any such request.
  • To request complete erasure of your data, email enquiries@republic.org.uk or write to Republic, 20-22 Wenlock Road, London N1 7GU.

The right to restrict processing

  • You have the right to request that we block or ‘suppress’ the processing of your data.  This will mean that while Republic continues to hold your data we will no longer use it in any way.  You also have the right to reverse any such request.
  • To request a restriction of processing email enquiries@republic.org.uk or write to Republic, 20-22 Wenlock Road, London N1 7GU.

The right to data portability

  • There is a right to data portability, which allows you to pass information held by one organisation to another organisation.  This is unlikely to apply to Republic, but if you wish to exercise this right please email enquiries@republic.org.uk

The right to object

  • You have the right to object to Republic processing your data in certain ways.  For instance, you may be happy for Republic to write to you via the post, but you may ask us to stop sending you emails.
  • To advise us of your preferences, use the methods provided at the time of communication from Republic, or email enquiries@republic.org.uk or write to Republic, 20-22 Wenlock Road, London N1 7GU.

Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling.

  • If your data has been automatically processed and this has produced a significant effect on you, such as the cancelling of your membership, you have the right to “obtain human intervention” (ie ask a member of staff to investigate and review the decision), express your point of view and obtain an explanation of the decision and challenge it.
  • To request a review of an automated decision email enquiries@republic.org.uk or write to Republic, 20-22 Wenlock Road, London N1 7GU.
