Data Protection Policy

From 25 May 2018 new European-wide General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) have come into force. Aim Hai Trust has obligations under these rules about the confidentiality, integrity and availability of personal data held in electronic or paper form by the Trust.

Personal data
The Trust holds personal data relating to donors of funds to the Trust (including bank details), to Trustees (name, address, date of birth etc.) and friends. This information has been supplied by the people concerned solely for the purpose of enabling us to carry out the Trust’s objectives as an organisation.

Much of the data we hold is in paper form. Some financial data and names and addresses are held electronically, password and internet security software protected. Back-up arrangements are in place in case of computer malfunction. Other data is held in paper files stored in a lockable filing cabinet.

Privacy and confidentiality
It is the policy and the practice of the Trust to respect the confidentiality of the information supplied. The Trust does not and will not pass this information to any other body or person for any purpose other than that for which it was supplied, e.g. to facilitate interbank transfers or claims for Gift Aid.

Access to data held
The Trust endeavours to ensure the accuracy of the data held. The Trust depends on donors to tell it if details supplied by you have changed. Donors are entitled at any time to ask to see the personal data that the Trust holds so that its accuracy may be checked or a request made to delete the personal data the Trust holds
