We collect data about you when we meet or work together, when you volunteer for us, when we communicate with each other about working/volunteering together, when you contact us, when we’ve been referred to you and when we’ve been to the same event and details of attendees were shared. We do so using the ‘consent’, ‘contract’ and ‘legitimate interests’ rationales of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) that came into force on 25th May 2018.

2 Rationale

2.1 The consent rationale is based on you giving us clear consent for processing your personal data for a specific purpose.  We store this consent document, and separately keep a record of the consent you have given.

2.2 The contract rationale is based on the processing necessary for a contract you may have with us, or specific steps required before entering into a contract.

2.3 Legitimate interest

The legitimate interest rationale is based on the alignment between our work and your work and / or interests, which if you work at a school, charity, social enterprise or other type of community organisation, those areas of work or interest could include:

  • Senior management and leadership

  • Corporate engagement and partnerships

  • Events, fundraising and marketing

  • Strategy
