How we collect your personal data

We collect most of this personal data directly from you in person, by telephone, writing or email. This includes when you:

We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:

  • Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.
  • Where we need to comply with a legal obligation.

Generally, we do not rely on consent as a lawful ground for processing your personal data, other than where you sign up to receive news via our website or where you provide a photograph for us to use for publicity or promotional purposes. You have the right to withdraw consent to such mailings or to us using your photo at any time by contacting us.

We have set out below, in a table format, a description of the ways we plan to use your personal data, and which of the lawful grounds we rely on to do so. We have also identified what our legitimate interests are where appropriate.

Note that we may process your personal data for more than one lawful ground depending on the specific purpose for which we are using your data. Please contact us if you need details about the specific lawful ground we are relying on to process your personal data where more than one ground has been set out in the table below.

We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

We will always treat your personal data with the utmost respect and never sell or share it with other organisations for marketing purposes.

How do we keep your data safe?

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those trustees and other third parties who have a need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

Information we collect will be held on our secure computer systems.

How long we will keep your personal data

We will only keep your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We may keep your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.

Details of retention periods for different aspects of your personal data are available in our retention policy which you can request from us by contacting our data protection manager.

In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see your legal rights below for further information.

In some circumstances we will anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

What are your legal rights?

Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. We have set these rights out in the following table:

Right to request access This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
Right to request correction (rectification) This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
Right to be forgotten (erasure) This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing, where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
Right to request restriction of processing This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios:

·       If you want us to establish the data’s accuracy.

·       Where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it

·       Where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.

·       You have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

Data portability This enables you to request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
Right to object to processing This enables you to object to the processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
Withdraw consent Where we are relying on consent to process your personal data you can withdraw this at any time. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

For further information on each of those rights, including the circumstances in which they apply, please see the Guidance from the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) on individuals’ rights under the General Data Protection Regulation.

If you would like to exercise any of your rights, please:

  • email, call or write to our data protection manager — see below: ‘How to contact us’;
  • let us have enough information to identify you, for example your full name and address and provide proof of your identity e.g. your passport or other identity document. This is to make sure that data is not shared with the wrong person inappropriately; and
  • let us know what right you want to exercise and the information to which your request relates.


We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

What if you’re not happy with how your data is used?

We hope that we can resolve any query or concern you may raise about our use of your personal data, so if you have a question please do not hesitate to contact us.

The General Data Protection Regulation also gives you right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority for data protection issues. The supervisory authority in the UK is the Information Commissioner’s Office who may be contacted at or by telephone: 0303 123 1113.
