Privacy Notice

The Irene Taylor Trust: Privacy Notice 

Your privacy is very important. This Privacy Notice outlines how and why the Irene Taylor Trust (ITT) gathers, stores and processes personal information. ITT is committed to protecting your privacy and adheres to the General Data Protection Regulation legislation (GDPR) 2016.

Security of data

ITT is committed to ensuring that your information is secure. To prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, ITT has put in place suitable physical and electronic safeguards, policies and procedures to ensure the safety and security of the information ITT collects.

ITT will never pass your data on to a third party unless we are required to by law or we have obtained your explicit consent to do so.

Where ITT stores data

The data that ITT collects from you may be electronically stored at a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”).  In this case, ITT will ensure that data is transferred and stored securely in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation.

What personal information ITT collects 

If you sign-up to receive ITT’s e-newsletters and/or project performance invitations, ITT will collect your name and the email address that you wish emails to be sent to. There is also the option to supply information about where you work, but this is not mandatory in order to register.

If you have taken part in one of our projects, ITT may have requested personal information from you including your name, postal address, telephone number, date of birth, ethnicity and gender. With your permission, ITT may also have taken photographs of you.

If you have made a donation or grant to ITT, it may have collected personal information which may include your name, job title, email address, telephone number and postal address.

If you have attended a project performance, ITT may have collected personal information from you including your name, date of birth, home address, occupation and national insurance number.

What ITT will do with the information it collects

When ITT collects and uses your personal information it will ensure this is only done in accordance with at least one of the legal grounds available under Data Protection law as follows:

If you have signed up ITT’s e-newsletter, ITT will use the email address you have provided to send electronic notifications of news and project updates which are relevant to those interested in ITT’s work, including ways to support ITT.  If you have signed up to receive invitations to regional project performances, ITT will use the email address you have provided to send these to you. ITT uses Mailchimp to send these communications. Mailchimp is committed to adhering to GDPR.

If you have taken part in one of ITT’s projects, your data may be used for the delivery of project CDs and accreditation certification, to stay in touch with you to provide support to progression routes and let you know about other opportunities, or for the purposes of evaluation, monitoring and reporting. Sensitive data used for monitoring purposes will be anonymised.

If you have made a donation or grant to ITT, your data may be used for the processing of donations and gift aid, for the administration of a grant as required by the grant-maker, or for our financial records as legally required.

If you have requested to attend a project performance, ITT may use your data to complete the necessary security checks required (usually for performances in prisons). This data will be used only for this purpose and destroyed once it has been processed.

In all cases, ITT balances its legitimate interests against your rights as an individual and makes sure to only use personal information in a way or for a purpose that you would reasonably expect in accordance with this Privacy Notice and which does not intrude on your privacy or expressed mailing preferences.
