Privacy and Cookie Policy
 

This Privacy and Cookie Policy applies to information we (Tourette Scotland) collect about individuals who interact with our organisation. It explains what personal information we collect and how we use it.

2. How we use your data

We will only use your data in a manner that is appropriate considering the basis on which that data was collected, as set out in the table at the top of this policy. For example, we may use your personal information to:
 

  • reply to enquiries you send to us;

  • handle donations or other transactions that you initiate;

  • where you have specifically agreed to this, send you communications by email relating to our work which we think may be of interest to you.
     

3. When we share your data
 

We will only pass your data to third parties in the following circumstances:
 

  • you have provided your explicit consent for us to pass data to a named third party;

  • we are using a third party purely for the purposes of processing data on our behalf and we have in place a data processing agreement with that third party that fulfils our legal obligations in relation to the use of third-party data processors; or

  • we are required by law to share your data.
     

We use Charity Checkout to process our membership registrations and financial donations. Their privacy policy can be found at https://www.charitycheckout.co.uk/Privacy/
 

In addition, we will only pass data to third parties outside of the EU where appropriate safeguards are in place as defined by Article 46 of the General Data Protection Regulation.
 

4. How long we keep your data
 

We take the principles of data minimisation and removal seriously and have internal policies in place to ensure that we only ever ask for the minimum amount of data for the associated purpose and delete that data promptly once it is no longer required.
 

5. Rights you have over your data
 

You have a range of rights over your data, which include the following:
 

  • Where data processing is based on consent, you may revoke this consent at any time and we will make it as easy as possible for you to do this (for example by putting ‘unsubscribe’ links at the bottom of all our marketing emails).

  • You have the right to ask for rectification and/or deletion of your information.

  • You have the right of access to your information.

  • You have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner if you feel your rights have been infringed.
     

A full summary of your legal rights over your data can be found on the Information Commissioner’s website here: https://ico.org.uk/

If you would like to access the rights listed above, or any other legal rights you have over your data under current legislation, please get in touch with us.
 

Please note that relying on some of these rights, such as the right to deleting your data, will make it impossible for us to continue to deliver some services to you. However, where possible we will always try to allow the maximum access to your rights while continuing to deliver as many services to you as possible.
