Paths for All Partnership is the registered Scottish charity number: SC025535 and is the data controller of the information we hold about you. We are registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office, registration number Z3426840
We collect, store and use information about you in order to deliver our services to you. We collect this information when you:
The information is likely to include your name, address, email address, job title and organisation.
Sometimes we will collect other information about you such as your date of birth, age group, gender and information about health conditions or activity levels. Wherever we ask you to provide this additional information, we will tell you our reason for collecting it and what we intend to use it for.
We may also collect information regarding your visit to www.pathsforall.org.uk or our other project websites. This may include where you are geographically, your browser and device type, the pages you have visited. Our servers track IP addresses and referring pages to help with site maintenance and improvements. This data is viewed only as anonymous statistics to show us insights to improve our website such as, the busiest times of the day or week, pages with errors and how effective our advertising has been. This information is not used for any other purpose. However, we reserve the right to attempt to identify and track any individual who is reasonably suspected of gaining or trying to gain unauthorised access to our computer systems or websites.
We collect information about you in order to process your requests such as sending you our newsletters, managing your enquiry or your purchase of a product or service and managing your participation in one of our activities.
We process personal information for legitimate interests and business purposes, which include the following:
We may process personal data when we need to do this to fulfil a condition of our grant funding (for example, if you have applied for a grant from us or if we are evaluating the impact of the work our grant funding has supported), where you are a trustee, an employee or a contractor (to manage the relationship) or where we are required to do this by law or other regulations.
When we process your data, we will keep your Personal Data rights in high regard and will take account of these rights. You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data and to be removed from our system. Whenever we communicate with you, we will provide you with the opportunity to unsubscribe so that you receive no further communication from us.
If you do not wish to continue to receive emails from us, click on the ‘Unsubscribe’ link in any email communications or contact email@example.com or write to us at the contact address at the end of this document.
If you wish to delete your Step Count Challenge account, you can do so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or write to us at the contact address at the end of this document.
Please bear in mind that if you do not allow us to process your information then we will not be able to carry out the tasks above for your benefit.
We take reasonable steps to protect the personal data collected against loss, misuse, unauthorised use, access, inadvertent disclosure, alteration and destruction. However, no network, server, database, internet or email transmission is ever fully secure or error free so you should take care in deciding what information you send to us when disclosing personal information.
We will retain your information in accordance with our Document and Data Retention Policy which is updated periodically. This can be provided to you on request.
Unless we are required to do so by law, we do not share your personal data with any third parties other than for the purposes stated below or to allow us to fulfil your requests. We never share your information for marketing purposes with other organisations or companies. We may share your information with partners in order to allow us to fulfil your requests. For example, we may need to share your information with an events company if you are due to attend one of our events and we are using an events company to manage that event. If you join a health walk group and provide us with a Walker Registration Form, we may share your details with the group you have joined in order to enable them to administer the group. In the course of operating some of our services, four example our Step Count Challenge, your data may be stored temporarily with third party contractors - for example database hosting companies and e-mail distribution services or online payment services. Where we share your information in these sort of circumstances, Paths for All has data management agreements with these contractors to ensure that your data is as secure with them as it is with us. These contractors will not have the right to use your details for any purpose.
When we share data with external evaluators or provide reports to our funders (as we are required to do under our conditions of grant), the information will be anonymised. Your personal data is not shared.
If there is an occasion on which we would like to share your personal data with a third party i.e. for research purposes or use of a photo you appear in, we will always let you know and will obtain your consent before doing so unless it is required by law that we share the data.
We will always contact you for permission before sharing your personal details with any third party organisation apart from those required by law.
