Centre for Youth Impact Privacy Notice
This privacy notice sets out how the Centre for Youth Impact uses and protects personal data. We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected and we will use your personal data in accordance with data protection legislation. This notice relates to our general data protection policy. If we collect other specific data which is not covered by this policy we will provide a separate privacy notice, for example, in our research activity.
Please note we may change this policy from time to time by updating this page.
What we collect
We may collect the following information:
- name and job title
- contact information including email address
- demographic information such as postcode, preferences and interests
What we do with the information we gather
We require this information to understand your needs and provide you with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons:
- to send you the information that you have requested (e.g. our newsletter).
- internal record keeping.
- we may use the information to improve our products and services.
- we may periodically send promotional emails about new events, training sessions or other information which we think you may find interesting using the email address which you have provided if you have requested these.
How we collect personal information
We may hold information relating to you from a number of sources, and will collect personal information about you:
- When you give it to us directly - for example, personal information that you submit through our website by signing up to our newsletter, or any personal data that you share with us when you communicate with us by email, phone or post.
- When we obtain it indirectly - your personal information may be shared with us by third parties, including our business partners or our sub-contractors.
- When it is publicly available - your personal data may be available to us from external publicly available sources e.g. Companies House or social media.
Our lawful basis for using your data
We are required to have one or more lawful grounds to collect and use your personal information. We consider the grounds listed below to be relevant:
- Consent - where you have provided your consent for our use of your personal information in a certain way, for example where we ask for your consent to send you our newsletter.
- Legal obligation - where the processing of your personal information is necessary for us to comply with a legal obligation to which we are subject, for example where we have to share your personal information with regulatory bodies which govern our work.
- Contractual relationship - where it is necessary for us to process your personal information in order to perform a contract to which you are a party (or to take steps at your request prior to entering a contract), for example where you are a client, or you volunteer with us or provide associate consulting services.
- Legitimate interests - where applicable law allows us to collect and use personal information on the condition that to do so is reasonably necessary for our legitimate interests (and the use of your personal information is fair, balanced, and does not unduly impact your rights). We may rely on this ground to process your personal information when we believe that it is more practical or appropriate than asking for your consent.
Where we store your personal data
All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
How long we keep your data for
The length of time we hold your personal information for varies depending on the type of information and its use. The Centre for Youth Impact will only keep your personal information for as long as it is necessary to provide the services and/or products that you have requested, or for such other essential purposes such as, complying with our legal obligations, resolving disputes, investigating disciplinary matters and enforcing our agreements.
We may also retain the data in accordance with statutory requirements.
Links to other websites
Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy notice applicable to the website in question.
