We are committed to ensuring that your personal data is protected. The majority of personal data held by the Foundation is in the public domain but this will be treated in the same manner as any sensitive data held. We may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. This policy is effective from 25th May 2018.
Processing on the legal basis of ‘legitimate interests’ (Article 6.1(f) of the GDPR)
In simple terms the legal basis of ‘legitimate interests’ means that the processing is necessary for the operation of the Foundation be it current charitable business or enquiries.
In order to do this we may collect and keep a record of personal data about you from our website, telephone conversations, emails, written communications and contact at public events.
The personal data we collect from you may be used in various ways, including:
Processing on the legal basis of ‘consent’ (Article 6.1(a) of the GDPR)
The Foundation will require your specific permission (‘consent’) before processing your personal data. In these circumstances we will provide notice of the exact nature of the processing and give you a genuine choice to accept or refuse.
Should you choose to accept (‘consent’) to such processing you then have the right to withdraw your ‘consent’ by informing us that you no longer give permission for your personal data to be used in this way.
Retention of personal data
Unless there are overriding legal requirements, we retain your personal data as follows: -
Keeping your personal data secure
All electronic personal data will be maintained in password protected files in Microsoft’s cloud based systems, with full back up facilities. Any paper documents will be stored in secured facilities.
Personal data transfers
The Foundation does not transfer the personal data it collects to any other entity outside of the EEA.
