Prospect Hospice is the leading provider of education and training for end-of-life care in Swindon and north Wiltshire. Working closely with you, our colleagues within partner organisations, we want to ensure that the very best care is available to everyone facing the end of life. This is why we provide education and development opportunities, all of which aim to encourage learning and build confidence in end of life care and support.
Broadly speaking, ‘Legitimate Interests’ means that we can process your personal information if we have a genuine and legitimate reason and we are not harming any of your rights and interests. This means that when you provide your personal details to us we use your information for our legitimate business interests to carry out our work to help people with life-limiting illness live life to the full, and help family friends and carers to continue with life after loss.
Some typical examples of when we might use the approach are for preventing fraud, direct marketing, maintaining the security of our system, data analytics, enhancing, modifying or improving our services, and fundraising.
We believe that people who share our values would love to know how to support us. We will process the personal information you have supplied to us to conduct and manage our business to enable us to give you the most appropriate marketing, information, and service; and provide the best and most secure experience. These are what we consider to be our ‘Legitimate Interests’.
The following are some examples of when and why we would use this approach in our work:
We will also hold information about you so that we can respect your preferences for being contacted by us.
When we process your personal information for our legitimate interests, we will consider and balance any potential impact on you and your rights under data protection and any other relevant law. Our legitimate business interests do not automatically override your interests – we will not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law).
We will retain the individuals’ data for as long as the active relationship lasts, for fund-raising, business analysis and administration purposes.
We will retain the individuals’ data for a period after the relationship has ceased, for the same purposes (i.e., no responses; no donations have been received). This will be for a maximum of 8 years after the last recorded activity by the individual. These timings are consistent with statutory responsibilities to retain data for Gift Aid and other tax purposes.
You can change the way you hear from us or withdraw your permission for us to process your personal details at any time by using our contact form on the Contact us page.
