When do we collect your personal data

Why do we collect and use your personal data

In what situations do we collect personal data from other sources

We run a background check on all employees using a third party screening and due diligence service provided by Thomson Reuters. We might also use sources in the public domain such as Google or the Driver and Vehicle Licensing (DVLA) database for this purpose. We carry out background checks in accordance with our due diligence policies and procedures in order to protect our charitable interests such as the risk of fraud, corruption, bribery, terrorism and money laundering.

In what situations do we share personal data with other organisations

What is our legal basis for collecting and using personal data

Where the processing is necessary to enter into or fulfil the terms and conditions of a contract. For example, to enable payment of your salary, tax, pension contributions and expenses.

Where the processing is required under the law. For example, collecting your medical information to protect your health & safety.

Where the processing is in our legitimate interests. For example, using your leave details to plan staffing levels and necessary cover. We will only rely on this legal basis if your interests and fundamental rights do not override our interest.

Where the processing is in your vital life interest. For example, sharing your personal data with emergency services in the event of a medical emergency.
