Our procedures mean that we may ask you to prove your identity before we share your personal information with you.

Third-party websites you access through links on our websites will have their own privacy policies. We do not accept any responsibility or liability for them.

 

There are many ways you may communicate with us online, including by:

  • Chat and instant messaging (such as Skype for Business)

  • Video conferencing (such as GoToMeeting)
  • File sharing platforms (such as OneDrive and SharePoint)

What we do

When you use email, chat, social media and other online platforms, it is likely you know what information you are sharing with us.

How we use and process your information, who accesses it, and how long we keep it, depends on the context in which we collected it, but follows the terms of our privacy policy and UK law.

The information is normally only handled by our authorised staff and is not shared with or sold to any third parties.

Images from closed circuit television (CCTV) of a recognisable person are treated as personal data in data protection law.

How we use CCTV at our Our Offices

We use CCTV to:

  • Maintain the safety and security of our property, premises, and people
  • Prevent and investigate crime
  • To assist disciplinary procedures in cases of serious misconduct.

Who has access to your information

Our CCTV system is operated from the Director’s office, a self-contained secure room, access to which is strictly limited to the security supervisor when empty.

Where necessary we may share CCTV image information with:

  • The person in the image
  • Employees and agents
  • Services providers
  • Police forces
  • Security organisations
  • Individuals making an enquiry.

How long we keep it

Unless we need them for an active investigation, we keep recorded images for 30 days. After that, the images are automatically overwritten by the recording equipment.

We destroy recordings that are part of an active investigation as soon as they are no longer needed.

Your rights

You can ask for a copy of your information recorded by CCTV, except in certain circumstances described by applicable legislation. You do not have the right to instant access.

How we use your Financial/Payment information

We do not use your information for any purpose you have not authorised, or disclose it to third parties. We process credit and debit card transactions following the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

Who has access to your information

The Finance Manager and Assistant Finance Manager only have access to your payment details to carry out your transaction.

What we do

For bank and building society account transactions, we may make a record of your:

  • Name
  • Branch address
  • Sort code
  • Account number
  • Signature

Where possible, we only store the verification code of card transactions and other data needed to process the payment once the transaction is complete. Where this is not feasible, we use other security methods to keep your data secure. We may process data such as the:

  • Cardholder’s name
  • Card number
  • Card security code (CSC)
  • Validity and expiry dates
  • Issue number

How long we keep it

We do not keep payment card information once the transaction has been completed.
