City of Winchester Trust Privacy

A new Privacy Regulation has been introduced by the EU that will be operational from May 2018. The aim of the legislation is to protect the public from misuse of their data.

This must be followed by all companies and organisations and charities in the EU. Although the UK is leaving the EU the UK Government has already stated that it will follow this European legislation. The legislation requires every organisation to very explicitly ensure its membership understands the data it has collected about them and ensures the data is uptodate.

The organisation must ensure it protects the stakeholders (members, employees and volunteers) data and ensures the data is held securely to stop theft and misuse.

The Legislation has several different approaches to meeting the requirements. An organisation like ours is best met by using a consent approach with our members. To meet the consent City of Winchester Trust has modified its application forms for future stakeholders. For existing stakeholders a consent form will be sent to all stakeholders for their consent to use their data (where we have an email address we will use this to obtain consent. Where we do not have an email address we will send stakeholders a paper form to complete).

A number of documents are available to our stakeholders to allow them to understand how City of Winchester Trust Council collect and use/protect their data:-
