The Village Club is GDPR compliant. When enquires are made about use of the Village Club the "personally identifiable data" related to the person enquiring (for example your email address) are recorded, stored and processed only for the purpose of administering that enquiry, any subsequent booking, the actual use of the Village Club, subsequent record keeping (for a reasonable time period) and communication directly associated with our running of the Village Club and your use of it. The legal basis on which we do this is to set up and service a contract between the Village Club and its users/prospective users who have contacted us with enquiries. We do not share data with any other organization except that we display on our web site something to indicate the nature of bookings for public consumption (e.g. "Yoga - 9:30"). We undertake to store all personally identifiable data in an appropriately secure manner and to do so only using service providers who we have verified are GDPR compliant. If you want us to put your name/email/number on our web site (for example to publicize your Yoga class) you need to specifically email us and request this.
How is the hall funded?
We are very grateful for the support we receive from Stirling Council but are very aware that funding may not continue indefinitely. We therefore strive to be as self-sufficient as possible and rely on the hall being used regularly. We have also had grants in the past from Lottery, Awards for All Fund, and the Clackmannan and Stirling Environment Trust
