What We Do With Your Data
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, health and safety or reporting requirements.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those who have a need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We may take secure backups of this data and store these on a server in the EU. The data provided will only be kept for as long as is necessary to carry out the functions it is needed for then it will be destroyed securely.
Please see specific data processing and storage details below:
Volunteers: Your data will be used to contact you individually with information during the volunteer application process and will only be provided to a third party when we are required to do so by law. In the longer term this information may be stored for up to six years following your volunteer induction in line with legal requirements, or for the length of your volunteering with Care4Calais.
We will not store the personal information of any person who does not attend a volunteer induction within six months of registering their interest. All information is stored electronically and is systematically cleared if unnecessary to support the volunteer.
Service Users: We will use your information to provide services to you and to decide whether referral to other services is useful for you. Your information will be held securely within Care4Calais and will only be accessible to staff and certain volunteers.
We can only share your data with other organisations if you have given us your permission and will only do so if it is necessary in order to provide our service to you. Care4Calais will not let other people see your data without your consent, unless we are required to by law or if there is a risk of serious harm or threat to life.
Newsletters: All volunteers and supporters who have given us permission will receive a regular newsletter with updates about the charitable work we do at Care4Calais. This newsletter will be sent via Mailchimp and if you wish to unsubscribe from these updates, please use the unsubscribe button at the end of the e-mail newsletter.
