This privacy policy sets out how The Drake Trust (The Trust) uses and protects any information that you give us.

We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide personal information then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.

What information we hold

We collect and process various categories of personal information, including basic information such as name and contact details, and information relating to grants given.

We may use the information we hold about you in the following way:

To contact you in relation to your grant; or to follow up for feedback having used your grant. We do like to keep a record of how grants have helped those receiving them, and we might ask you if you are willing to share your experience for use on our website, possibly along with a photo, and only with your consent.

The legal basis for this is that it is a legitimate use.

Please let us know if the personal information that we hold about you needs to be corrected or updated.

Retaining and deleting your personal data:

Personal data that we process for any purpose or purposes shall not be kept for longer than is necessary for that purpose or those purposes. After such time, we will either delete or anonymise your information or, if this is not possible (for example, because the information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your information and isolate it from any further use until deletion is possible.

We may retain your personal data where such retention is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject, or in order to protect your vital interests or the vital interests of another natural person.

Security of your personal data:

We will take appropriate technical and organisational precautions to secure your personal data and to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal data.

These precautions include: All devices including pcs, laptops, tablets and mobile phones are password protected.

Personal data will be handled with care at all times and is not left unattended or on view to unauthorised parties at any time.

Links to other websites:

Our website contains links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website and therefore cannot take any responsibility for it.

Data Sharing:

We will not sell, distribute or lease personal information to third parties unless we have the individual’s permission or are required by law to do so. Should you need to contact a member, we are happy to forward on emails.
