The information you provide will be held in accordance with the applicable law, and may be used by DataKind and its agents to supply DataKind services. For the purpose of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) where applicable, the data controllers are DataKind and DataKind UK.
DataKind may collect information about you at different stages and through various means. We try to collect as little data as necessary to provide our services. Some of it is optional, but allows us to continuously improve ourselves: we will only collect such data with your explicit consent. Specifically, we collect information in the following ways:
When you sign up on the website, we will ask for information such as name, occupation, address, etc. If you subscribe to any of the digital platforms we use (mailing lists, team collaboration tools etc.), we will collect information about your interaction with the services. If you apply to volunteer to work with us, we may interview you, and keep track of your professional profile, skills etc. In the course of your volunteering work with us, the output of your work may contain elements that describe you, e.g. pictures of you or notes that may refer to meetings and events you attended We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary to provide you with our services. Since knowledge of our past interaction with volunteers and partner organisations is essential to continuously improve our services, we may keep data you provide to us indefinitely.
We collect information about our volunteers to ensure we can provide the best services to you and the organisations we support. In particular:
The information that we have collected about you will be stored on DataKind-owned or third party servers, and, on occasions, on the local machines of staff and volunteers.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we use suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to prevent unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration or destruction of the information we hold. Where applicable, we periodically review our information collection, storage and processing practices.
We do not share personal information about our users with companies, organisations, and individuals outside of DataKind, unless one of the following holds:
we have the user’s explicit consent for sensitive personal information, we have the user’s explicit, opt-in, consent we are required by law to do so
Our policy is written using the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as a reference for all DataKind activities, including for individuals outside of the EU for which the law may not be applicable. You have the right to review, amend and delete the data we have about you. For this, you can contact us at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
