This Privacy Notice explains in detail the types of personal data we may collect about you when you interact with us. It also explains how we’ll store and handle that data and keep it safe. This Privacy Notice also sets out the basis on which any personal information we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us. Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal information and how we will treat it. For simplicity throughout this notice, ‘we’ and ‘us’ means Barod Project.
How we collect Information About You: We collect information about you when you register with us or when you are referred to us by GP or other Partner agencies. We also collect information when you voluntarily complete surveys or provide feedback.

How we will use the information we hold about you: We collect information about you to provide you with the support and services that you receive from us. The information we hold on you may also be shared with trusted third parties, specifically to fulfil reporting and/or audit requirements of statutory authorities.
Lawful Basis for processing your data: We must have a Lawful Basis for processing your data. The law on data protection sets out a number of different reasons for which we may collect and process your personal data, including:
1. Consent – We can collect and process your data where you agree to us using your information in this way. When collecting your personal data, we’ll always make clear to you which data is necessary in connection with the service that you want to receive from us.
2. Contractual obligations – Your personal information is processed in order to fulfil a contractual arrangement, which would be to fulfil the service that you receive from us. We will also use your address details to send you appointment letters.
3. Legal compliance – Where there is statutory or other legal requirement to share your information, which would be when we have to share your information.
4. Legitimate interest – In specific situations, we require your data to pursue our legitimate interests in a way which might reasonably be expected as part of operating our services and provide you with the best service in the most secure and appropriate way, which does not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests.
Some of these grounds for processing your personal data overlap, so there may be several reasons which justify us processing your personal information. In those circumstances where you have expressly given your consent to us to process your personal data, you are free to revoke/withdraw your consent at any time. However, please be aware that we may have the right to continue to process your information if it can be justified on one of the other lawful bases mentioned above.
How long will we retain the information that we hold on you: Whenever we collect or process your personal data, we’ll only keep it for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. At the end of that retention period, your data will either be deleted completely or anonymised, for example by aggregation with other data so that it can be used in a non-identifiable way for statistical analysis.
