It is important that you read this notice when we are collecting or processing personal information about you, so that you are aware of how and why we are using such information.

DATA CONTROLLER

DATA PROTECTION PRINCIPLES

We comply with data protection law. This says that personal information we hold about you must be:

  4. Accurate and kept up to date.
  5. Kept only as long as necessary for the purposes we have told you about.
  6. Kept securely.

We collect personal information about coaches and/or contractors through the application process, either directly through the coaches or from a coaching organisation. We may also collect additional information from third parties including former employers or when taking references.

HOW WILL WE USE INFORMATION ABOUT YOU?

We will only use your personal information when the law allows us to do so and will only use it for the purposes for which we collected it. If we need to use your personal information for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

Please note that we may process your personal information without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.

INFORMATION ABOUT CRIMINAL CONVICTIONS

We may only use personal information relating to criminal convictions, cautions or other court actions where the law allows us to do so. This will usually be where such processing is necessary to carry out our obligations with respect to our child protection and safeguarding.

We will only collect such information about criminal convictions if it is appropriate given the nature of the role and where we are legally able to do so.

AUTOMATED DECISIONS

We do not envisage that any decision will be taken about you using automated means, however we will notify you in writing if this situation changes.

DATA RETENTION

We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, audit trail or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount of time, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use and the applicable legal requirements.

In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal information so it can no longer be associated with you, in which case we may use such information without further notice to you.

RIGHT OF ACCESS, CORRECTION, ERASURE AND RESTRICTION

It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and correct. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes during your working relationship with us.

Under certain circumstances you have the right to:

Information about children may be released to a person with parental responsibility. However, the best interests of the child will always be considered.

We will try to ensure the data collected is accurate and if we identify any data accuracy issues, we will communicate lessons learned to staff through internal staff training.

If you want to review, verify, correct or request erasure of your personal information, object to the processing of your personal data, or request that we transfer a copy of your personal information to another party, please contact the Data Protection Officer in writing and they will respond within 28 days.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information. However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure you have the right to access the information. This is an appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any personal who has no right to receive it.

CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY NOTICE

We reserve the right to update this privacy notice at any time and without notice.
