HOW WE RESPECT PRIVACY WHEN WE DEAL WITH PERSONAL INFORMATION
COLLECTED BY OUR ORGANISATION
The Edinburgh Remakery needs to obtain and keep certain information on its employees, volunteers, members, service users and customers to carry out its day-to-day operations, to meet its objectives, and to comply with legal obligations.
The Edinburgh Remakery is committed to ensuring that any personal data we hold is dealt with in line with the relevant Data Protection legislation (the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and Data Protection Bill).
Personal information will be collected and used fairly, stored safely and not disclosed to any other person unlawfully. We will not share your information with any other organisation without informing you, unless required to do so by law. The Edinburgh Remakery may share data within the organisation in order to help us carry out our business and improve our service. We may also share data with processors, as and where required to carry out our business, such as SurveyMonkey for research purposes.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect.
The Edinburgh Remakery may update our Data Protection Policy as required. You should revisit this page from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes. This statement is effective from May 2021.
If you have any comments or questions about this notice, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
