This notice explains how the Glasgow and Clyde Valley Green Network Partnership (GCVGNP) gathers, uses, shares and protects the personal information that they hold. Personal information broadly means information that identifies a living individual.
Who we are
The GCV Green Network Partnership was formed in June 2007. The Partnership brings together the eight regional authorities as well as Forestry Commission Scotland, the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency, Scottish Enterprise, Scottish Natural Heritage and the Glasgow Centre for Population Health. Benefits delivered through development of the GCV Green Network will help local authorities deliver on a range of strategic documents. These include Single Outcome Agreements, Open Space Strategies, Local Biodiversity Action Plans and Access Strategies. Each partner is represented at senior officer level on the Partnership Board. The Chair of the Partnership Board is the Clydeplan Manager. GCVGNP staff are hosted by Renfrewshire Council. For further information about us, please visit our website.
What types of personal information do we hold?
We may hold and process your name and contact details (job title, address and postcode, email, telephone and mobile numbers).
Where do we get this personal information?
Normally, the only information we hold comes directly from you when you sign up to our newsletter or to take part in workshops, surveys or consultations. Other information that we hold has been made public by you or provided through board members.
Why do we hold this personal information?
We hold this information in order to keep you informed of progress and news relating to the GCV Green Network, to invite you to relevant events, workshops, and/or because you have specifically asked us to send you our newsletter.
What do we do with your personal information?
All the personal information is held on the GCVGNP computer system.
When we ask you for personal information, we promise to:
- make sure you know why we need it
- only ask for what we need, and not to collect too much or irrelevant information
- protect it and make sure nobody has access to it who shouldn’t
- only share it with other organisations when the law allows
- make sure we don’t keep it longer than necessary
- not make your personal information available for commercial use
In return, we ask you to:
- give us accurate information
- tell us as soon as possible if there are any changes
- This helps us to keep your information reliable and up to date.
How long do we keep it?

In either of these cases, your personal information will be removed from the GCVGNP computer system and from MailChimp’s computer system.
If you share your data with SurveyMonkey for the purposes of completing a survey, we will hold your personal information until we have completed analysis of the survey, in case we need to contact you for further information. Your personal information will then be removed from the GCVGNP computer system and from SurveyMonkey’s computer systems.
If you register for an event using EventBrite, we will hold your personal information as long as needed to share information about the event and any outputs from the event. Your personal information will then be removed from the GCVGNP computer systems and from EventBrite’s computer system.
