How we will use your data (within the Data Protection Act 1998 and General Data Protection Regulation 2018)
The information you give us on this form will be used to help us decide whether to recruit you as a volunteer - this is our ‘legitimate interest’ under data protection law. It will only be seen by staff involved in the recruitment process, and will be stored securely. We will retain unsuccessful application forms for up to 1 year from the date the application form was received.
If you are recruited we will retain your contact information in order to involve and support you. We will also collect additional information, such as next of kin details, and over time records of training, support meetings and where relevant, appraisals. Again, it will be kept securely, and only those people who need to see your information will have access to it.
All use of volunteer information will be relevant to their involvement, and may include:
Contacting volunteers when necessary
Making changes to role, support or equipment to improve accessibility
Monitoring statistical details of our volunteers
Providing ongoing support to volunteers
Monitoring the quality of advice given to clients
Addressing problems or complaints
You have legal rights over your data, including access to it, and the right to ask that it is corrected, restricted or deleted. There is more information on these rights on the Information Commissioner’s Office website: www.ico.org.uk
