The Trust is committed to complying with the Data Protection Act 1998, and GDPR 2018.
To operate effectively, the Trust needs to retain a limited amount of personal information about its members; specifically name, and postal and e-mail addresses.
Additional recruitment information provided on our Project Volunteer Application forms, will only be disclosed to those who need to see it in the management of the relevant project.
Information is kept securely in a digital format on an encrypted system. Your contact details will enable the Trust to keep you updated and notified of membership renewal, further volunteer opportunities, training and events etc.
The Trust collects information directly from its members, volunteers and supporters and relies on them to advise us of any changes. All reasonable efforts are made to ensure that information is accurate, up-to-date and secure.
Names, postal and email addresses may be shared with the Trustees so that they may communicate with members. Contact information will not be supplied to outside parties without the express permission of the members.
Members should contact the Trust to amend/withdraw the use of any information held by the Trust and the Trust will action such request within one month. Concerns about the collection or use of personal information should be raised with the Chair or Trustees. Ultimately members have a right to complain to the Information Commissioner's Office (www.ico.org.uk) if they think that there is a problem in the way that the Trust is handling their data.
