Pledge books and data protection

As part of the Recycling Rewards for Schools project Rochdale Borough Council are inviting school pupils to ask their family, friends and neighbours to make a pledge to recycle more. When the pledge is completed by a representative of the household we ask that some personal information is provided so that we can administrate the pledges and allocate rewards.

The postal address is collected to make sure that we only receive one pledge from each household and that all households are within a ten mile radius of Rochdale Borough. Without this information we cannot count the pledge.

A telephone number can be provided and would only be used in case we have a query about the pledge (for example, if we need to make sure we have read the details correctly). We will not use the telephone number for any other reason and people making a pledge do not have to include it if they would prefer not to – the pledge will still be counted, (unless we are unable to read the address).

We ask for an email address so that we can acknowledge receipt of everyone’s pledge.

The information collected will only be used for the purposes of this project and will not be used for any other purpose. These details will not be kept beyond the duration of the project and will not be shared with any organisation outside of the project, unless required to do so by law. The information collected will be kept until the end of the project (August 2016), at which point it will be securely destroyed.
