How is your information used?
We will use your personal information in the following ways:
- to combine it with other personal information that we hold, so we can create and share statistics about our events with other organisations. When we do this, we make your information anonymous, so no one will know it links to you.
Sometimes we do research to see what effect our sessions have on the people who attend them.
To help with this we might link the data you have given us, to other information about you held by the government. For example, information held by the Department for Education or the Department for Work and Pensions.
By law, they have to keep your data secure and private. We won’t share your information with third parties so they can sell you things. We have a Data Protection process in place to make sure your data is kept secure.
Because you have given us your information you have given your permission for us to use and share your personal information as we have described.
We will hold your data on our systems for as long as your school is a member and/or as long as there’s any possibility they may link up with us again.
You can find out exactly what personal information of yours we hold by emailing us with a ‘subject access request’ to us under the Data Protection Act 2018 and UKGDPR. If you contact us with this request and we do hold information about you, we will:
- give you a description of it;
- tell you why we are holding it;
- tell you who it could be shared with; and
- let you have a copy of the information in a way you will understand it.
To make a request for any personal information we may hold, you need to contact us using the details at the end of this policy. We will reply within 30 days.
If you think the information we have about you is wrong you can ask us to correct it or delete it. If you want to complain about how we have collected, kept or shared your information, you can ask us to look into this.
You can ask for your information to be deleted. Just ask us at the address below.
It’s really important to us that your information is safe. We have rules at Future First which make sure that your information is kept safe and secret.
