It is important that the information we hold about you is accurate and up to date. Please let us know if at any time your personal information changes by emailing us at


Personal data means any information capable of identifying an individual. It does not include anonymised data. We may process certain types of personal data about you as follows:

  • Identity Data may include your first name, last name, gender and job role.
  • Contact Data may include your delivery address, email address and telephone numbers.
  • Financial Data may include your bank account and payment card details.
  • Transaction Data may include details about payments between us and other details of purchases made by you.

  • Marketing and Communications Data may include your preferences in receiving marketing communications from us and our third parties and your communication preferences.

We may also process Aggregated Data from your personal data but this data does not reveal your identity and as such in itself is not personal data. An example of this is where we review Usage Data to work out the percentage of website users using a specific feature of our site. If we link the Aggregated Data with your personal data so that you can be identified from it, then it is treated as personal data.

Under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) personal data is defined as:

“any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person”.

Personal data includes your personal details and contact information, and details you submit to us.

The personal data we collect from you is used for the following purposes:

  • the administration of your referral, booking or job application
  • providing as appropriate relevant information to third parties to assist with your application

These special categories of personal data classified under the General Data Protection Regulations are:

Examples of special categories of data sometimes used by the Trust for applications are National Insurance numbers if required by employers.

If data classified by the General Data Protection Regulations as coming under the special categories of personal data is needed in order for us to assist you with your case or enquiry we will tell you why we need it and how it will be used.

By contacting us you are giving us permission to process your personal data for the purposes of making enquiries and seeking relevant job roles or applicants as set out in this Privacy Notice.

We will process your personal data until such time as your application or listing is concluded.  It is our policy generally to then retain the personal data for a retention period of up to five years. However, if it is clear that no legitimate reason to retain the personal data exists, the personal data will be deleted.

If we hold any original hard-copy documents on behalf of the data subject these will be returned to the data subject at the conclusion of our transaction or securely destroyed as confidential waste.

Please note that deletion of personal data means where the personal data has been held electronically we will delete it from the referral or job management system.  Where the personal data has been held in hard copy i.e. paper form this would be destroyed irretrievably as confidential waste.
