The type of personal information we collect

We currently collect and process the following information:

  • Newsletter – email address only

  • Activity Sign-Up Form – name, young person’s disability, telephone number, email address, postcode

  • Cookies – a cookie is a small text file downloaded onto your computer or smartphone when you access our website. It allows our website to recognise your device and store some information about your preferences or past actions. This data is collected to help us improve our site and give us a snapshot of our visitor traffic. To comply with ‘UK GDPR’, on visiting our website for the first time, we seek your permission via a cookie banner before placing “non-essential” cookies.

We use the information that you have given us to [list how you use the personal information].

We may also share personal data with government departments or other third parties who have funded the grants where this is a condition of their funding. 

If we share data with another organisation, we will only share necessary information, and send securely to the correct person.

Lawful basis

Before we collect and use personal data, This Girl’s Ability CIC must be able to demonstrate that there is a lawful basis for us to do so. UK GDPR provides lawful bases for processing personal data:

  • Consent: when you have explicitly told us that we may collect and use your personal data – for example by asking us to add you to our newsletter.

  • Vital interests: when we need to collect and use personal data to protect your vital interests or the vital interests of another person – for example by contacting the relevant authorities if we believe an individual is likely to come to immediate harm.

  • Public task: when we need to collect and use personal data to carry out one of our official tasks, or a task that's in the public interest – for example when we carry out surveys about activity participation to create official statistics.

  • Legitimate interests: when we need to collect and use personal data to pursue the legitimate interests of This Girl’s Ability CIC or a third party, unless doing so would interfere with your rights and freedoms.

Our lawful basis for collecting and using personal data varies depending on why we have collected it and what we'll do with it. Whenever This Girl’s Ability CIC collects personal data directly from you, we aim to set out our lawful basis as clearly as we can. If we receive personal data about you from a third party, we'll use reasonable efforts to identify our lawful basis and to inform you of this where it's possible and practical for us to do so
