Our Commitment

We will only hold information for specific purposes, i.e., informing them of the latest news and events: information that they have requested from us.

Information will not be disclosed to other organisations or to individuals who are not members of our organisation, staff or steering group members, except in circumstances where this is a legal requirement, where there is explicit or implied consent, or where information is publicly available elsewhere.

Data Security

We have procedures for ensuring the security of all electronic personal data. IT equipment containing personal information is kept in a looked room or cupboard when not in use.

Project documents and staff records are all kept in a locked filing cabinet and paper records containing confidential personnel data are disposed of in a secure way.

All passwords contain a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols, in order to keep information secure.  

All portable devices, such as memory sticks and laptops, used to store personal information are encrypted.

Regular back-ups will be taken of computer data files which will be stored away from the source location in a safe and secure place.

Staff and volunteers will be given training on this policy and all relevant procedures, i.e., storing and handling personal information.

Refresher training should be provided at regular intervals for existing staff.

We will carry out an annual review of our data protection policy and procedures.
