general data protection regulation
At The White Hills Park Trust we take data protection and your rights as an individual very seriously. We have worked hard to ensure the appropriate policies and procedures are in place across our schools so we are compliant; that we collect and process data responsibly; and that we store and dispose of information in accordance with the law.
The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect on Friday 25th May 2018.
The GDPR forms part of the data protection regime in the UK, together with the new Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018). More information on data protection can be found by visiting the Information Commissioners Office at www.ico.co.uk.
We collect and use personal information about staff, students, parents and other individuals who come into contact with the Trust. This information is gathered in order to enable us to provide education and other associated functions. In addition, there may be a legal requirement to collect and use information to ensure that the Trust complies with our statutory obligations.
Each Trust school has their own Management and Retention of Records Policy and Privacy Notices which can be found on their respective websites.
