Your Personal Data
Acts of Kindness Community (Solent) (AOK) will be what’s known as the ‘Data Controller’ of your personal data collected and processed as part of the services we provide and at any events at which AOK attends. This Privacy Notice will explain how we will process your personal data.
Why we need it
We are collecting your basic personal data in order to ensure we have a clear understanding of who is using our services and how often; knowing this helps with making grants and ensuring a fair access to all service users. We will only collect data that we need in order to fulfil and oversee this.
Legal basis for processing your data
We must have a legal basis for processing all personal data. In this instance, the legal basis is ‘Consent’.
What we do with it and who we share it with
All the personal data you submit is processed by volunteers at AOK in the UK.
How long do we keep it for?                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Your data will be retained by AOK for up to five years. After this time, data will be securely deleted. However, some images, videos or written comments may be kept permanently once they are published.
What are your rights?
