Wirral Tree Warden Network is self-funding and has to pay network costs which include registration fees, costs of meetings, tools, insurance for public liability and volunteer members, etc. We ask for an annual subscription of £10.00 per person to cover these costs.

There is a range of activities that members can take on to support the tree wardens network, keeping updated on campaigns and projects. You can pass on queries, concerns or information about tree issues in your area. You can join in at any of the Network projects that you may wish, such as planting or looking after trees or helping to maintain orchards, woodlands or hedgerows, 
Tree wardens have further undergone the free Tree Council training to equip them for an important role in their area, speaking up for local trees and woods, acting as eyes and ears over a changing landscape. They are not expected to be experts and can fully choose the extent to which they wish to be involved, but the training provides a sound basis and a common understanding of how best to work together, for the love of trees.
I wish to pay by

Wirral Tree Wardens’ Network:
Data Protection & Fair Processing Notice

(required by data protection regulations)

This notice is to tell you about why we need your information and how we will handle it.

Wirral Tree Warden Scheme is an independent organisation of volunteers, linked locally to Wirral Environmental Network, a registered charity and nationally to the Tree Council, another charity, who are responsible for the national tree warden scheme.

What Information do we need from you?

We need to know the following about you:

  1. Your name,

  2. address,

  3. email and

  4. contact phone number, (both your mobile and your home number),

  5. how involved you wish to be as a supporter/volunteer, etc.

 

you may also wish, if you take part in volunteer activities, to pass on information such as emergency contacts or health problems that might flare up, or if you carry a medic alert or similar notification. This will be entirely up to you and would be held in a sealed envelope in the first aid box, in case any emergency arises ( One of us, for example, has an anticoagulant medication that needs to be mentioned to first aiders or ambulance crews should an accident happen)

this is more about how we handle the data you supply: 

We use this information so that we can contact you to regarding our events and any training courses we put on, which might relevant to your role as a volunteer or tree warden or anything you've let us know about, where you want updates or further information.  We also will send you information from the Tree Council, relevant to your interest in tree issues..

For volunteer events, we also need to have a list of members present, to ensure that they are protected by the Tree Warden insurance arrangements and (currently) to comply with Covid 19 conditions on gatherings, possibly to trace anyone who has had contacts with infection.

We will also use the data as a mailing list to keep you up to date with what's happening locally and nationally with tree policy  and to ask your opinion about the policy choices for the Network, to involve you in making decisions.

We are allowed to process your information under data protection law within certain conditions. In this case we are using the performance of a public task as the lawful condition for us to do this. We also need an appropriate lawful reason to process sensitive data, (such as your contact details) so you give your consent by completing this form or signing in on a volunteer activity.  We need to share your information with others very rarely, such as the Tree Council tree warden data base. We will only do this when it is necessary to offer you this service, or if we are required to do so by law. We do not plan to share it with anyone else or use it for anything else. 

How will we keep it secure? We will take all reasonable steps to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. Only the people who need to see your personal information will be allowed access to it. We will not send your information to any outside organisation, individual or company.

How long will we keep it for? We will only keep this information for as long as necessary or as the law requires. 

What if something changes? If the information you provided changes, or your circumstances change, or if you'd rather not be on our data base please contact the co-ordinator of the network, Dave, (pdellwand@hotmail.com.)
