Our commitment to your privacy
The Nottingham Wellbeing Hub is committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors; this statement sets out how we will treat your personal information.
If you have any questions or queries about this Privacy Statement, please contact us using the details given in the section “Who to contact”. We will endeavour to respond to you as quickly as possible.
Your acceptance of this policy, and our right to change it
By using this website, social media pages, or providing your information you consent to our collection and use of the information you provide in the way(s) set out in this policy. If you do not agree to this policy please do not use our sites, social media pages or services.
We may make changes to this policy from time to time. If we do so, we will post the changes on this page and they will apply from the time we post them. This policy was last changed in April 2018.
What is personal data?
Personal data is information that can be used to help identify an individual, such as name, address, phone number or email address.
The policy in brief
It’s important that you read the full policy to understand what information we hold, how we may use it, and what your rights are – but if you don’t have time to read it all now, here’s a quick summary:
- We collect information that is either personal data (as outlined above) or non-personal data (such as IP addresses, pages accessed etc)
- We collect information about the people we assist, service users, volunteers and employees.
- We collect information to provide services or goods, to provide information, for administration, research, profiling, analysis, and for the prevention/detection of crime
- We only collect the information that we need or that would be useful to us in our quest to provide the best possible service
- We will do our very best to keep personal information secure, including SSL technology (secure server software) wherever we collect personal data online.
- We never sell your data and we will never share it with another company or charity for marketing purposes
- We only share data where we are required by law or with carefully selected partners who do work for us. All our partners are required by their contract to treat your data as carefully as We would, to only use it as instructed, and to allow Us to check that they do this.
What information do we collect and why?
We will only ever collect the information we need – including data that will be useful to help improve our services. We collect two kinds of information: non-personal information such as IP addresses (the location of the computer on the internet), pages accessed and files downloaded. This helps us to determine site usage, how many people visit on a regular basis, and how popular our pages are. This information doesn’t tell us anything about who you are or where you live. It simply allows us to monitor and improve our service.
Personal information such as name, postal address, phone number, email address, date of birth (where appropriate), information about your interests and hobbies etc.
We collect this information in connection with specific activities, such as newsletter requests, registration, product purchases, feedback, donations, etc. The information is either needed to fulfil your request or to enable us to provide you with a more personalised service. You don’t have to disclose any of this information to browse the sites. However, if you do choose to withhold requested information, we may not be able to provide you with certain services.
How do we use your information?
We will use the Personal Information about you, that we collect via our Website, only for the following purposes. We will use the information you provide to:
- record any contact we have with you
- fulfil your requests – such as participation in campaigns and provision of information
- identify visitors and contributors
- prevent or detect fraud or abuses of our website and enable third parties to carry out technical, logistical or other functions on our behalf
- to carry out research on the demographics, interests and behaviour of our service users to help us gain a better understanding of them and to enable us to improve our service. This research may be carried out internally by our employees or we may ask another company to do this work for us
- if you have agreed to it, provide you with information that we think may be of interest to you.
Correcting your details
If you would like us to correct or update any of the information that we hold about you, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us between 8am-5pm on 0115 970 9558 or write to “InTouch, Framework Housing Association, Val Roberts House, 25 Gregory Boulevard, Nottingham NG7 6NX.”
Sharing your information
We will only share your information if:
- We are legally required to do so, e.g. by a law enforcement agency legitimately exercising a power or if compelled by an order of the Court
- We believe it is necessary to protect or defend our rights, property or the personal safety of our people or visitors to our premises or website
- We fear for your immediate safety
What We don’t do with your information
We never sell or share your information to other organisations to use for their own purposes.
Security of your personal data
We use a number of mechanisms to protect the security and integrity of your Personal Information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. So while we strive to protect such information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. Once any Personal Information comes into our possession, we will take reasonable steps and all other precautions required by law to protect that information from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
Links to other websites
Our website may, from time to time, contain links to the websites of other organisations which may be of interest to you. Linked websites are responsible for their own privacy practices and you should check those websites for their respective privacy statements.
Access to information
The Data Protection Act and its successor the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) gives you certain rights over your data and how We use it. These include:
- the right in certain circumstances to have inaccurate personal data rectified, blocked, erased or destroyed
- the right to prevent your data being used for direct marketing
- the right to be forgotten
- the right of access to a copy of the information we hold about you (known as a subject access request)
If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact us at the address given in the ‘Who to Contact’ section below, stating your full name and providing us with sufficient information to verify your identity. Please also help us to respond quickly by indicating why you think we hold Personal Information about you and what information you think we may hold.
