Please note that the Londependence party is not always obliged to stop processing and/or erase personal data when asked to do so.

The Londependence party will only retain personal data for so long as it is required to meet the purposes set out in this note on data protection and our GDPR compliance, unless a longer retention period is required by law. This may include holding your data after you have ceased to engage with the party (e.g. ceasing to be a member) where the Londependence party has a legitimate interest in doing so. The Londependence party's data retention period is a maximum of 7 years from collection or re-consent. Excluding exempt data in the UK Data Protection Act and excluding data where the Londependence party has a legitimate interest in retaining said data for longer, this applies to all types of data, unless a different period is required by law. The Londependence party's data refresh and re-consent cycle is no more than 7 years from collection or re-consent. Excluding exempt data in the UK Data Protection Act and excluding data where the Londependence party has a legitimate interest, this applies to all types of data, unless a different period is required by law.
