Processing and using your data
GLL clearly states in its Privacy Notice its legal basis for processing your personal data, with whom it shares your data, from whom it receives personal data, and how, and for how long, we store your data. The Notice is accessible online at https://www.better.org.uk/privacy and also sets out your rights as a data subject.
Principally we process your data for the purpose for which we collected it, and we share it only with our joint controllers or third parties engaged in software provision, service provision or storage provision. There will be occasions where we are required to share data outside of those principles, for example disclosures in support of the prevention or detection of crime, or the assessment or collection of tax or duty, or if a disclosure is required by law, by order of a court, or for the purpose of or in connection with any legal proceedings.
Managers and staff within GLL will take all necessary steps to make sure that personal data is kept secure at all times against unauthorised or unlawful loss destruction or disclosure. GLL will retain personal data only for as long as it is needed for its original purpose. Any data no longer required will be deleted or disposed of confidentially and completely. Records deleted on live systems will also be deleted from system back-ups and archives, along with any hard copies.
