Information Collection And Use
Labour Members Against Imperialism/LMAI is the controller of your data, is responsible for the collection and processing of your data.
You can contact us at any time: http://l-mai.com/about/
What data is collected
In most circumstances we will only ask you for your name and contact details. Sometimes we ask for additional information about you and your views and interests and activities you take part in, if this helps in campaigns or in keeping campaigns relevant to you. Additional information we may ask you to provide may include geographic information (for example, your postcode and constituency), your willingness to volunteer, your date of birth, gender, ethnicity, employer and occupation, whether or not you are a member of a political party, trade union or other organisation, and whether or not you are a student.
Where we obtain your data from
In most cases, we will obtain your data directly from you, using an electronic or physical form, or verbally. We may sometimes supplement your data with other publicly available information where we have your consent to do so, where it is necessary to do so in order to comply with a contract we have with you, one of our legal obligations or legitimate interests, or where you have given other organisations permission to share your data with us.
What LMAI does to keep your data secure
We have physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to help safeguard, prevent unauthorised access to your data, maintain data security, and correctly use your information. These include protecting your information using firewalls, password protection and, where appropriate, encryption.
We train our volunteers to understand data protection and to keep your data secure.
Who has access to your data
We will never sell your data to any other organisation.
We will never share your data with any other person or organisation unless it is obvious that that is what we are going to do (e.g. if we have asked you to sign a petition to send to a politician, or the government). In LMAI, only those authorised to process your data can access it. We make sure that volunteers see only the data that is necessary to perform their tasks.

Where we process your data on the basis of your consent, that processing of your data will be restricted to those types of processing to which we have received your consent for the purposes for which you have consented to its being processed and we shall indicate which categories of data we are going to process on the basis of your consent.
If it is necessary for us to process your data in order to comply with any other contracts we may have with you, then when we enter into the contract with you we will inform you of this, as well as informing you of the types of processing that it will be necessary for us to carry out, the categories of data that we will process and the purposes of our doing so.
LMAI is a campaigning organisation that has a legitimate interest in producing and improving its political communications in a democratic society in order to build a lasting network of support and debate around the ideas that its campaign inspires. These communications are defined as “marketing” in the data protection legislation. We process your name and contact details and additional information about you and your views and interests and activities you take part in on the basis of this legitimate interest, in order to improve these communications and help them reach you and people like you or reach people that they have not reached before.
How LMAI will communicate with you
For any direct “marketing” communications about our campaigning we will only contact you via email, text, or telephone if we have your permission to do so. We may occasionally send you campaigning materials through the post.
You may also see campaigning online and on some social media sites if you have interaction with us before.
To respond to your queries we will contact you either via the medium you used to contact us or by a medium you have indicated you would like us to respond with. If it is necessary to contact you for any administrative purposes then we will usually try to email, text or call you, usually in that order, depending on what contact details we have available for you.
