In some cases, GIFT may need to gather consent to collect, store and use individuals’ data. If this is the case GIFT will provide a privacy notice at the time the data is being collected. The privacy notice will outline:

- Who is processing their data

Most of the time this will be GIFT. However, there may be occasions where we are collaborating with another organisation who also needs access to this data. This will be clearly outlined in the privacy notice.

 

- What data is involved

The privacy notice will detail all data being requested. We will only request data required for the purposes of the process.

 

- The purpose for processing that data The privacy notice will detail how and why the data is being processed. We will not share information with other parties unless this outlined in the privacy notice.

- The outcomes of data processing

The privacy notice will detail how and where the data is being stored. Information will be stored for different lengths of time. Each privacy notice will specify how long GIFT will store information for.

 

- How to exercise their rights

Each privacy notice will detail an individuals’ rights. This is further explained below in section 5.

 

- How data is stored

To protect individual’s privacy GIFT ensures it uses secure processes, procedures and databases to hold data. Privacy notices will outline how each type of data is secured.

 

General practice includes:

• use of locked filing cabinets where data is stored on paper or memory sticks

• shredding of paper data that is no longer required

• computer log in passwords that are strong, not shared and changed regularly

• restrictions on staff access levels and use of passwords where data is stored on a cloudbased system or network

• using third party processors, which includes cloud-based systems, which have been audited and agreed

 

GIFT will keep and process data only for long enough to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected. After that point, it will be disposed of in a secure manner. Each privacy notice will explicitly outline how long information will be held.

 

Privacy notices will be shared with individuals at the point of contact. Individuals can request copies of privacy notices at any given point.

 

Data sharing:

GIFT will never sell individuals data. However, it may be processed by limited third parties in line with funding agreements and project partnerships. Where any data sharing occurs, or anonymity is used it will be bought to the individual’s attention via privacy notices.

 

Examples of data sharing include:

• Sharing participant, audience and workforce statistics with third parties, including Arts Council England, funders and project partners, to report on its work

• Using third-party provider, Mail Chimp & Wix to deliver its newsletters

• Using third-party provider, Just Giving to deliver fundraising campaigns

• Using Google Analytics and Audience Agency’s web analytics tool to collect information regarding visitor website interactions. (This includes what visitors do on our website, as well as information provided by visitor’s computers, i.e. browser type.
