Data Protection and Confidentiality
Data protection is the area of law that governs what may, and what may not, be done with personal information.
The 1998 Data Protection Act came into force on 1 March 2000 with the purpose of protecting the rights of individuals about whom data (information) is obtained, stored, processed and disclosed.
CLC is committed to fulfilling its legal obligations within the provisions of the Data Protection Act and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We are registered with the Information Commissioners Office.
CLC holds personal information on the following:
- Clients and advice contacts
- members of youth@clc
- applicants for recruitment and selection
- training participants
- mailing lists
Personal information is usually stored by CLC in electronic and paper formats.
CLC is committed to protecting the privacy and personal data of all of our service users. In compliance with GDPR, personal data may only be held and processed where there is a lawful basis for doing so. The lawful basis adopted by CLC will vary depending on the purpose for which you access our services.
CLC’s Privacy Notice has been developed so that we can clearly communicate to our stakeholders and service users the types of personal data we may collect and the lawful basis for doing so. It also explains how we store and handle data and keep it safe.
