WHERE WE GET YOUR INFORMATION FROM
Information you give us:
- information about you that you give us by filling in forms on our site or by corresponding with us by e-mail or otherwise
- includes information you provide when you register to use our site, subscribe to our services or participate in discussion boards or other social media functions
Information we collect about you:
- each time you visit our site we will automatically collect technical information via Google Analytics, including part of your Internet protocol (IP) address (so it is anonymous and cannot identify you), your login information, browser type and version, operating system and platform, information about your visit, including the full Uniform Resource Locators (URL), services you viewed or searched for, length of visits to certain pages and page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks and mouse-overs)
- this is all statistical data about your browsing actions and patterns and does not identify you by name
- for individuals in our speaker network, we may seek to gather social media handles for the promotion of your work with us from publicly available social media platforms
Information we receive from other sources:
- information we receive about you if you use any of the other services we provide
- we will notify you when we receive information about you from them and the purposes for which we intend to use that information
Personal data is information which could identify you specifically like your name, job title or email address. This is collected either through our online forms – so our application forms and Contact Us page – or through your communication with us by email or phone, so we only have the information which you give us specifically.
To be able to organise talks in schools with you, we will always need at least your name, job title, contact details and location so this is the most crucial information for us. We will keep this information for as long as we actively work together, and at most 2 years beyond that. This information is used to fulfil your application and keep in touch regarding your relationship as part of the Speakers for Schools network, by helping to organise talks in secondary schools either as a teacher or a speaker.
Specifically regarding our speaker network, in addition to this data we may seek to collect directly from you other information, including demographic data around gender, ethnicity, etc. to ensure that we are creating a representative network to inspire students, and also to use the data in aggregate for marketing or promotional purposes.
Furthermore regarding our speaker network the basic details of the date and location where you have or will volunteer your time with us may be shared with your employer if asked, or a partner we are working with on a wider talk series, purely for company-wide reporting purposes. Finally, these details may be shared with contracted PR or marketing companies for marketing purposes for the charity’s benefit. No data beyond your participation would be shared outside of the charity. May be shared with official third parties of the charity to support the charity’s core operations and activities.
You have certain rights regarding your personal data that we hold:
- The right to be informed – We have to tell you about the personal data we’re holding about you and what we do with it (which is exactly what this page is). If these details change, you can find them here, but if they’re significant we will contact you to let you know about the changes.
- The right of access – You can request that we provide you with all of the personal data we hold about you, and we will provide it within as quickly as we can reasonably do so.
- The right to rectification, to restrict processing, and to erasure – You can contact us at any time to either correct any data with us which you think is incorrect, to ask us to stop processing and using your information temporarily, or to ask us to erase your data completely. You can contact us for this by either emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or getting in touch via our Contact Us
- The right to object – If you don’t like what we’re doing – how we’re contacting you, etc. – you can always let us know using the above contact details and we will stop what we’re doing immediately.
- Finally, you also have the right to not have decisions made about you automatically without your knowledge. No decisions we make are made by an automatic process, so this is not relevant here.
