Your Personal Data – What Is It?
Personal data relates to a living individual who can be identified from that data. Identification can be by the information alone or in conjunction with any other information in the data controller’s possession or likely to come into such possession. Processing of personal data is governed by the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”).
This policy applies to all employees, Trustees, and volunteers of Age UK Worcester & Malvern Hills whose data may be processed by the Organisation.
Who Are “We” / “Us”?
Age UK Worcester and Malvern Hills is the data controller (contact details below). This means it decides how your personal data is processed and for what purposes.
How Do We Process Your Personal Data?
“We”, comply with our obligations under the GDPR by keeping personal data up to date; by storing and destroying it securely; by not collecting or retaining excessive amounts of data; by protecting it from loss, misuse, unauthorised access, and disclosure and by ensuring that appropriate technical measures are in place to protect personal data.
We use your personal data for the following purposes:
- To operate and deliver the services that individuals have requested,
- To inform individuals of news, events, activities, or services run by us,
- To manage our employees and volunteers,
- To maintain our own accounts and records,
- To process gift aid applications,
- To contact individuals to conduct research about their opinions of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
- What Is The Legal Basis For Processing Your Personal Data?
The legal basis is dependent on why we are processing data and will be one of the following:
- Consent of the data subject,
- Processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with the data subject or to take steps to enter into a contract. Details of contracts include using our “Handyperson” service or “Help at Home” (also known as “Homeworker”) service, being a “Homeworker”, or having a delivery of goods purchased in one of our shops,
- There is a legal requirement for us to process the data, for example claiming Gift Aid,
- Processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of a data subject or another person (for example for Safeguarding or being recorded as a “Next of Kin” or “Emergency Contact”); or where the data subject is physically or legally incapable of giving consent.
Processing is necessary for the legitimate interests of the data controller or a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests, rights, or freedoms of the data subject. We believe that we have a legitimate interest in keeping the personal details of:
- Our clients with whom we have a relationship so that we can provide ongoing support and inform them of relevant other services.
- Our volunteers so that we can manage their deployment.
