At Child First Trust we treat your data with the respect it deserves. We aim to be transparent and informative in all we do. The Child First Data Protection Policy aims to provide a set of guidelines to enable all those involved in Child First Trust to understand:
- The law regarding personal data
- How personal data should be processed, stored, archived and deleted/destroyed
- How staff, associates, parents and pupils can access personal data
From 25 May 2018, organisations that handle personal data were required to meet new legal requirements, as the General Data Protection Regulation came into effect across the EU (replacing the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive).
On the same day, the UK’s Data Protection Bill was passed into law, as the Data Protection Act 2018, effectively implementing the GDPR into UK law.
GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018, expand the privacy rights granted to data subjects and place greater obligations on organisations such as ourselves who handle the personal data of those individuals (data controllers and processors).
Similarly a copy of the Child First Data Protection Policy can be accessed HERE.
Where associates use their own devices (such as laptops) to carry out their Child First work, they do so in full agreement to the charity’s Child First Bring Your Own Devices Policy
