We will provide the information in a way that is concise, transparent, intelligible, easily accessible and uses clear and plain language.

The lawful basis for processing your personal data

As a service user at Cranhill Development Trust, we need to keep and process information about you to keep you informed about CDT services.  The information that we hold and process will be used for our management and administration use only.  We will keep and use it to enable us to run the Trust and manage our relationship with you effectively, lawfully and appropriately, during the time you spend working with the Trust.

Where we process special categories of sensitive personal data relating to your ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, biometric data or sexual orientation, we will always obtain your explicit consent to those activities unless this is not required by law or the information is needed to protect your health in an emergency.

Where we are processing data based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time.
