Who we are

The Compton Community Fibre Partnership group began in late 2019 as an informal committee set up to bring fast fibre to those parts of the parish which have been left out of the Hampshire Superfast Broadband rollout.

We are supported by the Compton Village Association, and a grant from Compton & Shawford Parish Council’s CIL fund.

We were able to take advantage of the Rural Gigabit Broadband voucher scheme from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to provide funding for a Community Fibre Partnership with Openreach.

As part of this process, Openreach draws up a contract which has to be signed on behalf of the community by a Legal Entity such as a business, a charity or a Parish Council.

In March 2020, we registered Compton Community Fibre Partnership Ltd with Companies House to act as signatory.

Our website address is: https://cfp.comptonshawford.uk.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Details of premises and residents.

If you chose to use the signup form on this site to request a DCMS Rural Gigabit Connectivity Voucher for your property, we recorded details about you, your property and your business (if you have one). We only recorded the details which the voucher scheme needs.

We use the details to update you on the progress of the project.

We pass the details to Openreach who need them to plan the fibre installation and to claim the DCMS vouchers which will fund our fibre project. DCMS validates the vouchers.

Comments and contact forms

If and when we enable visitors to leave comments on the site and when visitors use the contact form, we collect the data shown in the comments/contact form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to us saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

We pass the details to Openreach who need them to plan the fibre installation and to claim the DCMS vouchers which will fund our fibre project. DCMS validates the vouchers. DCMS and Openreach will have their own GDPR-compliant privacy policies.

How long we retain your data

This site has been set up for the purpose of supporting the Compton Community Fibre Project.

The project will be wound up, and Compton Community Fibre Partnership Ltd shut down after the successful implementation of FTTP in Compton Village. We expect this to be in late 2020 or early 2021.

On completion of the project, all personal data will deleted from the website.

At that point we will either close down this website or pass responsibility for its contents, without any personal data, to another body to preserve it online for the guidance of others who wish to run a similar project.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained as long as this site is active. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

What rights you have over your data

If you have submitted details to request a DCMS RGC voucher, you can ask for an exported copy of the personal information you provided to us. You can also request that we delete that information if you have changed your mind about the DCMS voucher.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Additional information

How we protect your data

This website, and any data it has collected, are protected by strong passwords, two-factor authentication for administrative access to the hosting provider, several levels of firewall, and a policy of applying the latest security fixes to the software as soon as they become available.

What data breach procedures we have in place

If, despite the data protection measures we have in place, we become aware that there has been a data breach, we will work with our hosting provider to identify and close the breach. We will tell everyone who has signed up what has happened and what, if any, of their personal details may have been exposed.

Updated March 2021 to clarify what happens to this website when we wind up the project.
