How we use your information

We will manage, use, and store the information you give us securely, in line with the Data Protection Act 1998 and General Data Protection Regulation 2016.

We will use the information you provide to:

  • Communicate with members, supporters, carers and staff.

  • Process payments, deliver services and communicate with you.
  • Administer volunteer records.

Your Rights
GDPR legislation, which is regulated under the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), protects your rights. We will consider any right you wish to exercise and do our best to comply. These rights fall into the following categories:

Right to be Informed
We will keep you informed of how we use your data, why we use your data, and only act in accordance (unless legally required otherwise) with your preferences where you have made them known.

Right of Access
This is your right to see all the data we (or any other organisation) hold on you and is called a ‘subject access request’. This means you can ask us to share with you a copy of all the data we hold on you, such as current and past addresses, attendance record, donation history, and any other personal information we may hold.

Right to Rectification
If we have incorrect information about you, we must put it right. This includes, where possible, updating information held by third parties who are processing on our behalf. We will comply with these requests as quickly as we can and confirm with you that we have done so. Updates and corrections may take up to 28 days to take effect.

Right to Erasure
You have the right to be removed completely from our database, erasing all history of contact.  We will consider any request to erase personal information and will keep minimum data to ensure we can identify you so that we do not contact you again. When processing is restricted, we are permitted to store your personal data, but not further process it. We will retain just enough information to ensure that the restriction is respected in future.

Right to Data Portability
This allows individuals to obtain and reuse their personal data for their own purposes across different services. It allows you to move, copy or transfer personal data easily from one IT environment to another in a safe and secure way, without hindrance to usability.

Right to Complain

If your complaint relates to information under the Data Protection Act or GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and you are not happy with our response it may then be referred to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
