Privacy Statement

  1. WHAT WE COLLECT
    1. We may collect the following information from you through the use of this website:
      1. Name
      2. Contact information including email address and telephone number
    2. If you are applying for any form of grant – on behalf of someone else or on behalf of your organisation, you will be asked to provide information which we believe is necessary for us to verify and assess the application:
      1. For Project and Research Grants, this will include contact information of the applicant the organisation they represent, together with detailed information about the project/work that funding is being sought for.
      2. For Individual Grants, this will require the supporting staff member who is completing the application to provide information relating to:
      3. Confirmation that they have the resident’s consent to submit an application on their behalf and provide us with the required personal information;
      4. Whether or not the resident is a resident of eligible social housing providers. The web-form automatically prevents continuing with the application if the resident is not a resident of an eligible social housing provider;
      5. Contact information for the supporting staff member and the resident;
      6. Household information for the resident, for example, the number of people living in the house and number of dependent children and their ages;
      7. Reasons for needing the grant and what the grant will be spent on; and
      8. If required, supporting qualifying evidence depending on the specific type of grant the application is for. For example, this might be information related to the resident’s physical or mental health; or evidence to confirm employment, self-employment or a place on a further or higher-education course.
    3. We will also collect information relating to gender, age bracket, ethnic origin, marital status, sexual orientation and religious beliefs. The provision of this information helps us to ensure that we are reaching a wide range of people with the funding we offer. This information is voluntary and you are not required to provide it. However, if you do provide this information, it is used in statistical form only and will not be used to make decisions about you or your application.
  2. WHAT WE DO WITH THE INFORMATION WE GATHER
    1. It is in the legitimate interests of Longleigh to collect this information in order to understand the needs of the beneficiary groups we support and to provide those beneficiaries and stakeholders with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons:
      1. To process applications for grants
      2. Internal record keeping
      3. To improve our services
      4. Verifying and assessing funding applications
    2. Where we have been provided with sensitive information, for example for our equality and diversity monitoring, this is provided voluntarily and on the basis of your consent.
    3. We shall not retain data for longer than necessary for our legitimate commercial interests. Longleigh has a limit on how often an application for grants can be made. As such, we usually keep information for 2 years following the conclusion of an application; whether that is through the provision of grant for successful applications, or notification of an unsuccessful application. However, there may be instances where we need to keep information for longer, for example where we have a statutory or regulatory obligation to do so, or require it in relation to any dispute or legal action.
  3. WHO WE WILL SHARE YOUR INFORMATION WITH
    1. In relation to Longleigh’s Project & Research Grants, where you have applied to us for a grant, we will contact any referee whom you have identified and provide them with the information in your application form to enable them to verify this.
    2. If you are a supporting staff member making an application on behalf of a resident, we may have need to ask you to provide us with additional data about the resident, which we reasonably believe is relevant to the consideration of the application.
    3. Other than as described above, we will not share, sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we are required by law to do so.
  4. CONTROLLING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
    1. You have the right to object to us using your information in certain ways, or in some cases to have your information deleted from our systems. If you would like us to look into this, please contact us and we will consider your request carefully. There may be circumstances where we still need to use your information in certain ways, despite your request. If that is the case, we will explain this to you.
    2. You are also entitled to:
      1. Request details of personal information which we hold about you under the Data Protection Act 2018, including information about how we use your data.
      2. Ask us to correct or update your information if you believe that any information we are holding is incorrect or incomplete.
      3. Withdraw your consent to our use of sensitive personal data (such as equality and diversity or health information) where you have provided this voluntarily on the basis of consent. If you withdraw your consent, this may have an impact on our consideration of your application, but we will discuss this with you at the relevant time.
      4. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioners’ Office if you believe that Longleigh has not complied with the terms of this statement, or if you have any other concerns about the way in which we deal with your data. 
  5. SECURITY
    1. We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. We will never transfer your data outside of the UK.
  6. LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
