How we use your Data- Privacy Notice

When collecting information from participants, parents and/or carers, especially personal data, it is important to provide clear guidance on how we intend to use this information and for what purpose.

Our Privacy Notice below provides details of the data we collect from those involved in outreach and recruitment activities including information on where data is stored, who has access for processing, the legal basis for processing data and who it is shared with.

EMWPREP Privacy Notice

Introduction

This privacy policy sets out why the East Midlands Widening Participation Research and Evaluation Partnership (EMWPREP) collects your data; how it collects it; and what it does with it once it has been collected. This policy relates specifically to information held by EMWPREP and our partner institutions and is in addition to Loughborough University’s general Privacy Policy. All data is held securely and in compliance with relevant data protection legislation.

Where we get your data

If you (or your child or dependant) take part in an activity at a university or further education college, you may be asked to complete an EMWPREP Data Collection Form by one of our partners.

This information allows us to create a record of you (or your child or dependant) on our database.

We also obtain and hold information about your (or your child or dependants) school life, for example GCSE and A-Level qualifications (from the Department for Education), and your university life for example details of degree programmes you have studied, qualifications obtained, jobs held after graduation (from the Higher Education Statistics Agency), which is supplied to us by third parties.

Types of data we collect and hold

The information collected, stored and processed by EMWPREP and our partner institutions may include any of the following:

How we use your data

The data collected by EMWPREP and our partners will be used to check if the activities you (or your child / dependant) attend are aimed at the right people and provide the right information.

In order to process your data, we need to identify an appropriate lawful basis for general processing and an additional condition for processing special category data.

Our data collection forms are therefore split into different sections:

Our services are governed by Loughborough University as Data Controller for EMWPREP and our database. Our Data Protection Officer is Mark Lister (dp@lboro.ac.uk).

Analysis of your data may result in the publication and release of reports to third parties. Any reports produced using your data will never contain your identifying or contact details. If you wish to check what information is held on you, please complete our Subject Access Request Form.

We may also use your data to communicate with you via your school, post or email about taking part in more research to help us understand our activities.

Our EMWPREP Partners may also wish to contact you about taking part in additional activities.

If you wish to update your information or communications preferences, please complete our Update Your Details Form.

Who has access to your data

Your data is held in a secure database which is controlled to make sure that only those people that need to see it have access to it.

We may make data available to third parties who provide a service for our partners- including delivery of activities (such as online mentoring courses) as well as monitoring and evaluation of those activities. When this is the case we will ensure there are written contracts in place governing the usage of data.

Details of data that may be shared between organisations and a list of those third party organisations can be found in our Data Sharing policy document.

To obtain further information about your school and university life we may also make data available to the Department for Education (DfE), UCAS and the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).  By sharing your name, date of birth and postcode, DfE and HESA are able to link data together to provide a fuller picture of your school and university life which measure the success of activities you have attended.

We will always ensure any personal data shared with third parties is done so in a secure manner and in line with Loughborough University’s Information Governance Policy.

We will never send your data outside the European Economic Area.

We will never sell your data to other organisations.

How your data is maintained

You may be asked to complete a subsequent form when taking part in another activity. We will use this form to update any information that we have already collected from you. You can also update your data at any time by using our online Update Your Information Form.

In order to fulfil government reporting requirements, we will retain your full information for the lifetime of the partnership (currently until July 2021). Once we have matched your information to your school and university records and a full match has been found we will then remove your identifying details from your record.  An example of the current duration length for HESA matching can be found here in our Data Retention and Deletion policy document.

Your rights

You can, at any point, tell us if you no longer want us to process your data – even if you have previously given us permission to do so. You can either complete the Data Deletion form, or contact us at info@emwprep.ac.uk

We always aim to comply with these requests, if for any reason we are unable to we will let you know the reason why.

You may request details of personal information which we hold about you under the relevant data protection legislation. A small fee will be payable. If you would like a copy of the information we hold please contact us using the details above.

Should you wish to make a complaint about the way in which we have collected and/or processed your data, please contact us at info@emwprep.ac.uk

You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority such as the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). Details of how to do so can be found on the ICO website.
