II. General provisions This policy applies to all personal data processed by the Organisation. The Responsible Person shall take responsibility for the Organisation’s ongoing compliance with this policy. This policy shall be reviewed at least annually. The Organisation will register with the Information Commissioner’s Office as an organisation that processes personal data.

III. Lawful, fair and transparent processing To ensure its processing of data is lawful, fair and transparent, the Organisation shall maintain a Register of Systems. The Register of Systems shall be reviewed at least annually. Individuals have the right to access their personal data and any such requests made to the Organisation shall be dealt with in a timely manner.

IV. Lawful purposes All data processed by the Organisation must be done on one of the following lawful bases: consent, contract, legal obligation, vital interests, public task or legitimate interests (see ICO guidance for more information). The Organisation shall note the appropriate lawful basis in the Register of Systems. Where consent is relied upon as a lawful basis for processing data, evidence of opt-in consent shall be kept with the personal data. Where communications are sent to individuals based on their consent, the option for the individual to revoke their consent should be clearly available and systems should be in place to ensure such revocation is reflected accurately in the Organisation’s systems.
V. Data minimisation The Organisation shall ensure that personal data are adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed.

VI. Accuracy The Organisation shall take reasonable steps to ensure personal data is accurate. Where necessary for the lawful basis on which data is processed, steps shall be put in place to ensure that personal data is kept up to date.

VII. Archiving / removal To ensure that personal data is kept for no longer than necessary, the Organisation shall put in place an archiving policy for each area in which personal data is processed and review this process annually. The archiving policy shall consider what data should/must be retained, for how long, and why. VIII. Security The Organisation shall ensure that personal data is stored securely using modern software that is kept-up-to-date.
Access to personal data shall be limited to personnel who need access and appropriate security should be in place to avoid unauthorised sharing of information. When personal data is deleted this should be done safely such that the data is irrecoverable. Appropriate back-up and disaster recovery solutions shall be in place. IX. Breach In the event of a breach of security leading to the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to, personal data, the Organisation shall promptly assess the risk to people’s rights and freedoms and if appropriate report this breach to the ICO (more information on the ICO website).

Information we receive about you can be accessed and preserved for an extended period when it is the subject of a legal request or obligation, governmental investigation, or investigations of possible violations of our terms or policies, or otherwise to prevent harm. We also retain information from accounts disabled for terms violations for at least a year to prevent abuse or other term violations VI. How will we notify you of changes to this policy?
