Wherever possible, we use aggregated or anonymous information which does not identify individual visitors to our website.
We will never request personal information about your health or the health of your family members or friends, unless we inform you how that information will be used and receive your express consent to use it.
How do we collect information?
Some of the ways we collect information is outlined in section What information do we collect?, In addition, we may collect information that is available in the public domain, e.g. newspaper or online media items; publicly available posts on LinkedIn or social media; and Companies House listings, as described in more detail in the profiling section below. We record your requests for information and any feedback we receive from you.
Why do we collect information?
We collect information for the purpose set out in section What information do we collect?, which also includes the lawful basis for which the information is processed. These include:
- Where processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party. If you fail to provide this information, we may be unable to perform the contract.
- Where we need to comply with a legal obligation
- Where processing is necessary for the purpose of the legitimate interest pursued by us or a third party, except where your rights as a data subject override our legitimate interest. The legitimate interests we rely on are:
- (i) to fulfil the charitable purposes of Yateley Industries. If we are unable to fundraise then we will not be able to continue to provide services to our staff, residents and customers.
- (ii) to fulfil the charitable purposes of Yateley Industries we need to recruit staff to deliver the services and to raise funds. Minimising recruitment costs allows us to spend more money on our charitable purposes. Keeping a talent pool of CVs enables us to source staff in a cost-efficient way.
- (iii) The health and safety of our visitors & customers.
- Where processing is not necessary for the above reasons, we only process your information with your consent, or as otherwise required or permitted by law.
What is profiling and why do we do it?
- Profiling is a common technique used in direct marketing and involves analysing data to improve the targeting of communications. We use profiling and screening techniques to ensure communications are relevant and timely, and to provide an improved experience for our supporters. In particular we carry out profiling of potential donors to ensure that we are engaging with the people most likely to support the charity. Profiling allows us to target our resources effectively, which donors consistently tell us is a priority for them.
- We may also use profiling techniques to perform Due Diligence research as required by the Fundraising Regulator’s Code of Fundraising Practice, for example when certain levels of donation are made. More details can be found at fundraisingregulator.org.uk.
- When building a profile, we may analyse geographic, demographic and other information relating to you in order to better understand your interests and preferences so we can contact you with the most relevant communications. In doing this, we may use additional information from third party sources when it is available.
To do this, we use publicly available data about you, for example addresses, listed directorships on Companies House, property prices on the Land Registry or typical earnings in a given area. We may also gather additional data which is freely available in the public domain (for example, newspaper articles or online sources), this may include: details of your career and personal/family background; your philanthropic interests (trusteeships and/or support to other charities); evidence of other similar gifts or involvement with other charities; your networks and potential influencers; your wealth, estimated net worth and gift capacity; and any recent and/or relevant media coverage about you.
- We do this because it allows us to understand the background of the people who support us and helps us make appropriate requests to supporters who may be able and willing to give more than they already do and to predict the level at which donors may be able to support the charity in the future. Importantly, it enables us to raise more funds, sooner, and more cost-effectively, than we otherwise would.
- If you do not wish your data to be used in this way or have questions about this, you can notify us by using the contact details at the end of this policy.
Do we share your information with anyone else?
- We share your personal information as set out in detail above and described below, otherwise as permitted by law.
- We may need to provide your information to our contractors and suppliers who provide services on our behalf, to the extent necessary to enable you to receive those services.
- We may share your information with the service providers or other associated organisations as identified in this policy to use the information for their own purposes as described above.
- We may also need to disclose your information if required to do so by law or as expressly permitted under applicable data protection legislation. Our site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites
How long do we keep your information for?
- We keep your information for no longer than is necessary, as set out in our Data Retention Schedule. We will retain your information for any period required by law, for example for compliance with HMRC requirements. Where we are not under a legal obligation to retain your information, we will determine what is necessary by reference to the lawful basis for processing set out above and our legitimate interests.
- If you have any questions about how long we keep your information, please contact us using the contact details at the end of this policy.
How do we protect personal information?
We take appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure that the information disclosed to us is kept secure, accurate and up to date and kept only for so long as is necessary for the purposes for which it is used.
You should be aware that the use of the internet is not entirely secure and although we will do our best to protect your personal data we cannot guarantee the security or integrity of any personal information which is transferred from you or to you via the internet. Any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features such as encryption to try to prevent unauthorised access.
What are your rights?
- Right of access – you have a right to ask us to confirm whether we are processing information about you, and to request access to this information.
- Right to rectification – you may ask us, or we may ask you, to rectify information you or we think is inaccurate, and you may also ask us to remove information which is inaccurate or complete information which is incomplete. If you inform us that your personal data is inaccurate, we will inform relevant third parties with whom we have shared your data so they may update their own records.
We want to ensure that your personal information is accurate and up to date. If any of the information that you have provided us with changes, for example if you change your email address, name, payment details, or if you wish to cancel your registration, please let us know using the contact details at the end of this policy.
- Right of portability – You have a right to obtain your personal data from us and reuse it for your own purposes, perhaps for another service, without hindering the usability of the data. This right does not apply where processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in us.
- Right to be forgotten – You have a right to seek the erasure of your data. You may wish to exercise this right for any reason, for example where it is no longer necessary for us to continue holding or processing your personal data you may withdraw your consent. You should note that we are entitled to and reserve the right to retain your data for statistical purposes. This right is not absolute, as we may need to continue processing this information, for example, to comply with our legal obligations, or for reasons of public interest.
- Right to restriction – You have a right to ask us to restrict our processing of your information (‘right to restriction’) if:
- you contest its accuracy and we need to verify whether it is accurate
- the processing is unlawful and you ask us to restrict use of it instead of erasing it
- we no longer need the information for the purpose of processing, but you need it to establish or defend legal claims
- you have objected to processing of your information being necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest, or for the purposes of our legitimate interests. The restriction would apply while we carry out a balancing act between your rights and our legitimate interests. If you exercise your right to restrict processing, we would still need to process your information for the purpose of exercising or defending legal claims, protecting the rights of another person or for public interest reasons.
You also have the right to prevent us from processing your data for the purposes of marketing.
If you would like to exercise any of your rights please let us know using the contact details at the end of this policy.
