Any personal data we collect will only be used as permitted by law.

RAIN is established in Guernsey and protects the rights of individuals in relation to their personal data in accordance with the Data Protection (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Act 2017.

Personal data is any information about you that enables you to be identified. Personal data covers obvious information such as your name and contact details, but it also covers less obvious information such as identification numbers, electronic location data, and other online identifiers.

We refer to any individual for whom we hold personal data as a “Data Subject”.

3. When Do Your Process My Personal Data?

Where we are processing your personal data, we do so lawfully and in all matters, one or more of the following conditions of the law will apply:

  • The Data Subject has requested or given consent to the processing of personal data.
  • The processing is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract to which the Data Subject is a party or made between RAIN and a third party in the interest of the Data Subject, or to take steps at the request of the Data Subject prior to entering into such a contract.
  • The processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of the Data Subject or any other individual who is a third party.
  • The processing is necessary for purposes of the legitimate interest of RAIN or a third party.
  • The processing is necessary for RAIN to exercise any right or power, or perform or comply with any duty, conferred or imposed on RAIN by an enactment or an order or a judgement of a court or tribunal having the force of law in Guernsey.

4. What Are My Rights?

A Data Subject has the right to be advised as to whether RAIN is processing personal data relating to them and, if so, that individual is entitled to one free copy of their personal data (with further copies available at a fee). This is known as a Subject Access Request (“SAR”). Upon receipt of an SAR, RAIN has a period of one month to adhere to the request (an extension of two further months can be sought by RAIN depending upon the complexity and number of requests submitted by the Data Subject).

A Data Subject has the right to data portability. This means that an individual can arrange for the transfer of their personal data from RAIN to another data controller without hindrance. This right can only be utilized where the processing is based on consent or for the performance of a contract. Where a Data Subject invokes the right to data portability, the Data Subject has the right to be given their personal data in a structure, commonly used and machine-readable format suitable for transmission to another data controller. Upon the request of a Data Subject, RAIN must transmit their personal data directly to another controller unless it is technically unfeasible to do so.

RAIN is not obliged to comply with a Data Subject's request under the right of access or right to data portability where it cannot comply with the request without disclosing information relation to another individual who is identified or identifiable from that information.

A Data Subject has the right to object to RAIN's activities relating to the processing of personal data for direct marketing purposes, on grounds of public interest and for historical or scientific purposes.

A Data Subject has the right to require RAIN to complete any incomplete personal data and to rectify or change any inaccurate personal data.

A Data Subject has the right to submit a written request to RAIN regarding the erasure of the Data Subject's personal data in certain circumstances. These include where:

  • The personal data is no longer required in relation to its original purpose for collection by RAIN;
  • The lawfulness of processing is based on consent and the Data Subject has withdrawn their consent;
  • The Data Subject objects to the processing and RAIN is required to cease the processing activity;
  • The personal data has been unlawfully processed;
  • The personal data must be erased to comply with any duty imposed by law; or
  • The personal data was collected in the context of an offer from an information society service directly to a child under 13 years of age.

A Data Subject has the right to request, in writing, the restriction of processing activities which relate to the Data Subject's personal data. This right can be exercised where:

  • The accuracy or completeness of the personal data is disputed by the Data Subject who wishes to obtain restriction of processing for a period in order for RAIN to verify the accuracy or completeness;
  • The processing is unlawful, but the Data Subject wishes to obtain restriction of processing as opposed to erasure;
  • RAIN no longer requires the personal data; however, the Data Subject requires the personal data in connection with any legal proceedings; or
  • The Data Subject has objected to processing but RAIN has not ceased processing operations pending determination as to whether public interest outweighs the significant interests of the Data Subject.

Where any rectification, erasure or restriction of personal data has been carried out, the Data Subject has a right to ensure that RAIN notifies any other person to which the personal data has been disclosed about the rectification, erasure or restriction of processing. RAIN must also notify the Data Subject of the identity and contact details of the other person if the Data Subject requests this information.

A Data Subject has the right not to be subjected to automated decision making without human intervention.

5. Complaints

You may make a complaint in writing to the supervisory authority (the Office of the Data Protection Commissioner in Guernsey) if you consider that RAIN has breached, or is likely to breach, an operative provision of the data protection law, and the breach involves affects or is likely to affect any of your personal data.

6. Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. This may be necessary, for example, if the law changes, or if we change our business in a way that affects personal data protection.
