We always ensure only authorised persons have access to your information, which means only our approved staff, contractors and trustees and that everyone who has access is appropriately trained in data management.
No data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. So, whilst we strive to safeguard your information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you provide online and you do this at your own risk. Who has access to your information?
- Third parties such as an event or project partner, in which case we will let you know how your data is used when you register for an event. We select our third-party service providers with care. We provide these third parties with the information that is necessary to provide the service and we will have an agreement in place that requires them to operate with the same care over data protection as we do
