What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When you contact Santon Downham Village Hall any information you send (whether by post, by telephone, or electronically) may be retained in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve services. Your personal information will not be sold, lent, or hired to companies or individuals outside of this web site. All necessary precautions are taken to protect your information and all information is securely deleted when it is no longer required.

All data and information collected is managed by the Santon Downham Village Hall Secretary. If you believe we hold information about you that you would rather we didn’t, please contact the Secretary and request that all data held about you be deleted. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes; you will be informed of this at the time.


To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this too. Don’t worry, you won’t get crumbs in your keyboard; they’re not that sort of cookie.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another. You can read more about cookies here:

How do we use cookies?

A number of our pages use cookies to remember:

  • your display preferences, such as contrast colour settings or font size
  • if you have agreed (or not) to our use of cookies on this site
  • to find out how many visitors there are to these pages (don’t worry, they don’t identify you personally)

This information is accessible to the web site administrator.

Also, any videos that appear on our pages use a cookie to anonymously gather statistics on how you got there and what videos you visited.

Enabling these cookies is not strictly necessary for the website to work but it will provide you with a better browsing experience. You can delete or block these cookies, but if you do that some features of this site may not work as intended.

The cookie-related information is not used to identify you personally and the pattern data is fully under our control. These cookies are not used for any purpose other than those described here.

How to control cookies

You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish – for details, see You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work.
