Data Protection Policy
SNAAP is committed to protecting your privacy. This statement explains when, how and why we collect information about you, how we use it, the circumstances in which we may disclose it to others and the way we work to keep your information safe and secure.

SNAAP has considered the Data Protection Act 1998, the General Data Protection Regulation 2016 and the Privacy and Electronic Communication Regulations 2003.
What information do we collect about you?
The information we collect will vary depending on reason for our interaction with you but may include your name, postal address, phone number, email address, date of birth, next of kin, medical history, bank details, your IP address (the location of your computer on the internet), pages accessed on our website, information about your interests and hobbies and any other information that is reasonably necessary.
Why we collect information about you
We collect information so that we may:
  • provide you with the service(s) you have requested
  • keep you informed of what we are doing
  • ask you to assist us in fundraising activities or process a donation to us
  • comply with our administrative duties, financial regulations and the law.
How do we collect information about you?
We collect and store information about you whenever you interact with us including for example when you register with us to receive any of our services, when you apply to work for or volunteer with us, when you make a donation to us or leave us a legacy or otherwise give us any other personal information.

We may also receive information about you from third parties for a specific purpose, for example if you are referred to us by Social Services.

Before we collect any data from anyone under 18 years of age we will always ask them to obtain the permission of their parent or guardian.
How do we use your information?
We may use your information to:
  • fulfil your request to receive a service from us or to provide you with any requested information
  • process and verify any financial transactions arising from donations to us, purchases from us or other payments
  • record and process any interaction we have with you
  • process any job or volunteering role application
  • communicate with you about our services and our mission
  • comply with our administrative duties, financial regulations and the law
  • carry out research to improve and promote SNAAP
We fully understand and accept the fact that when you provide us your information you expect us to keep it safely and may not want us to share it with other organisations.
We will never sell or rent your information
We will treat your information as confidential and only share it with, for example:
  • your family, next of kin, friends or associates who act on your behalf
  • our volunteers and/or employees who provide you with a service
  • trusted third parties including medical professionals in the event of a medical emergency or if you are unwell, the Police, courts or any other regulatory authority
How we look after your information
We take the security of your information seriously and are bound by law to ensure your information is kept safely. We will use all reasonable efforts to do this. In the unlikely event that our processes do not meet our high standards we will tell you immediately.

When we collect information, we will only collect what we need and keep it to a minimum. We will adhere to our internal policies and will abide by laws and the recommendations of regulatory bodies such as the Information Commissioners Office and the Charity Commission. See the links above.

We will take appropriate physical, electronic and managerial measures to ensure that we keep your information secure and we will only keep it as long as is reasonable and necessary. Information kept on our computer systems and technical devices are encrypted with passwords to prevent unauthorised access.
Using our website
You may browse our website without disclosing any information to us. However, if you visit our website anonymously, we may still record information about the areas of the website you visit, the amount of time you spend on it, whether you are new to it or have visited it before, how you came to our website – for example, through an email link or a search engine - and the type of computer, browser, network location and internet connection you use. This information doesn't tell us anything about who you are or where you live; it simply allows us to monitor and improve our service.

If you visit our website and provide information about yourself, perhaps to make a donation or request a service from us, we will treat that information in accordance with this statement.
Job applications and volunteering opportunities
If you apply for a job or volunteering opportunity with us we will collect information to assess your suitability for the role. We will only use the information you give us to process your application and to monitor recruitment statistics and undertake relevant checks.

SNAAP will put together a file about your employment or volunteering role which will be kept secure, used only for matters that apply directly to your role with us and kept after your role with us has ended in accordance with our record retention policy. You can contact us to find out more about this.
How can a service user check, amend or request the deletion of the data SNAAP holds about them?
A service user may contact SNAAP to check their data, or correct inaccuracies found in the data which we hold about them, or if they no longer wish to receive information from us, at any point in time. This can be done via:

Your rights and choices
Current legislation gives you the right to see all the personal information we hold on you, the right to have it amended and the right to stop us causing you damage or distress (we hope we never do).
