In line with the new General Data Protection Regulations which come into force on the 25th of May, please find below what we do with a user's personal information, our Data Protection Policy and a copy of our Record of Consent form which volunteers and Trustees will be asked to sign. 

USER PERSONAL DATA PROCEDURES



Upon booking certain personal details will be retained belonging to the person booking the beach access equipment out, namely: Name, Address, Post Code, Mobile Phone number. 


This information is recorded on a paper sheet by the person who took the booking call. The number used to make the booking, if different from the number given, will not be retained without the booker’s permission.


This information is retained until the end of the ‘loan’.

This may be retained longer in the event of an accident to person or incident to equipment, or in the event of a safeguarding disclosure and may require further personal details to aid in the investigation. 

At the end of the loan or end of any investigation, all information on paper will be shredded and any information held on electronic devices will be deleted.


Only the postcode will be retained if permission has been granted to aid with Fundraising applications.


We also require any volunteer’s personal mobile phone information to be deleted by the booker after the loan period has ended. Any contact required with the organisation after this period must be made through the Charity’s phone number 0300 999 4444.
