What information do we collect and how do we use it?
The type of personal information we collect about you depends on the purpose of collecting the information.
We use contact information from web forms, emails, mail and telephone to send you information, to provide you with a service, or deliver a grant. Your contact information is also used to contact you when necessary, for example, to fulfil a query.
Applying for a service or an activity
We will collect data about you, both personal data (such as your name and contact details) and also sensitive personal data (such as information about your mobility requirements and health). The personal data and sensitive personal data will be stored, processed and used in the following ways:
- Providing and administering our services and activities
- Monitoring the quality of services and activities provided
- To answer your questions and enquiries
- To use your information on an anonymised basis to monitor our performance
Users under 18 years of age
On some occasions, we may collect and manage data of under 18’s. We will always aim to manage this data in a way that is appropriate to the age of the child and only keep this data for the purpose in which it was collected. Children’s data is usually only collected if a child applies for a grant.
We will always try to seek consent from the parent or guardian of the child before collecting and processing this information. In the event that we learn we have collected personal information from anybody aged 17 or under and do not have the consent of a parent or guardian, we will delete that information as quickly as possible.
Any donations you make require personal and financial information. We will collect your contact information (such as contact details) and financial information (such as account numbers).
Financial information that is collected is held securely and deleted on an ongoing basis
We will not sell or exchange your details with other organisations other than where we have a duty to share your information with third parties, regulatory or law enforcement agencies if we believe in good faith that we are required by law to disclose it in connection with the detection of crime, the collection of taxes or duties, in order to comply with any applicable law or order of a court of competent jurisdiction, or in connection with legal proceedings.
By providing us with your personal data, including sensitive personal data such as on your health, you consent to the collection and use of this information in accordance with the purposes described above and this privacy statement, and you agree to allow us to share your details with other organisations that may fulfil your request or query on our behalf.
