The Cranfield Trust collects and processes personal information about you during and after your relationship with us in order to manage that relationship. We are committed to being transparent about how we collect and use your data to meet our obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Personal information means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data).
Data we collect
What we use it for
Names, addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses
To contact you in connection with a specific enquiry, project, masterclass or other services; to keep you updated on our services or activities and events; to record your location in order to match volunteer consultants to your project
Information gathered from business and social media sources in the public domain, eg LinkedIn, Facebook, Companies House, Charity Commission
To build a picture of your organisation’s background, aims and objectives in order to match volunteer consultants to the organisation in relation to a project
Information related to project monitoring such as hours spent on a particular project and confidential project notes

IP Addresses (Contact Forms)
As an extra cyber security measure, we may log the IP address of the computer used to email us a contact form as part of our registration process. This type of data does not normally identify an individual in the UK.
IP Addresses (Google Analytics)
Visitors to our website for general enquiries may have their IP address logged for the purposes of tracking site traffic. Such logging is covered by Google Analytics’ own data privacy policies which include anonymization and automated data retention controls
Some of the above grounds for processing will overlap and there may be several grounds which justify our use of your personal information.
If you fail to provide certain information when requested, we may not be able offer you the full range of our services.
We will only use your personal information for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason, and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
Please note that we may process your personal information without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.
We collect information through our charity client registration process. We may sometimes collect additional information from third parties including business and social media searches such as LinkedIn, and publicly available sources such as Companies House and Charity Commission. We may collect personal information in the course of our project-related activities throughout the period of our relationship with you.
We do not envisage that any decisions will be taken about you using automated means, however we will notify you in writing if this position changes.
Your information may be shared internally, including with our volunteers offering pro bono consultancy and with staff members responsible for managing and administering projects, events and marketing activities.
We may have to share your data with third parties, including third-party service providers, for example in connection with supporting our CRM system and IT network (including remote support) and professional advisers where necessary, who may be party to confidential discussions related to a client organisation.
We require third parties to respect the security of your data and treat it in accordance with the law. We will share your information with third parties where required by law, where it is necessary to administer our relationship with you or where we have another legitimate interest. All our third party service providers are required to take appropriate security measures to protect your personal information in line with our policies. We only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
The Cranfield Trust takes the security of your data seriously. We have internal policies and controls in place to ensure that your data is not lost, accidentally destroyed, misused or disclosed, or subject to unauthorised access. Where necessary, we implement appropriate network access controls, user permissions and encryption to protect data.
Where we engage third parties to process personal data on our behalf, they do so on the basis of written instructions, are under a duty of confidentiality and are obliged to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure the security of data.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.
We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting or reporting requirements. Details of retention periods, archiving and destruction policies for different aspects of your personal information are available in our retention policy which is available from the person responsible for data protection.
As a data subject, you have a number of rights, details of which can be found at https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-the-general-data-protection-regulation-gdpr/individual-rights/
If you have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. Once confirmed, we will no longer process your information for the purpose you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law.
If you believe that the organisation has not complied with your data protection rights, you can complain to the Information Commissioner (ICO).
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information. However, if we think that your request is unfounded or excessive, we may charge a reasonable fee or refuse to comply with the request. We may need to confirm your identity or ensure your right to exercise your legal rights. This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.
We reserve the right to update this privacy notice at any time, and we will provide you with a new privacy notice when we make substantial updates. We may also notify you in other ways from time to time about the processing of your personal information.
The Cranfield Trust (Court Room Chambers, 1 Bell Street, Romsey, SO51 8GY) is the Data Controller.
