Data Shared with and by International Course Leaders and Sherborne Developmental Movement Practitioners

International Course Leaders and Practitioners are not employed by the Sherborne Association UK and are freelance trainers and practitioners and are therefore responsible for their own policies and procedures, including data management policies.  The Sherborne Association UK takes no responsibility for individual practitioners’ data management policies or International Course Leaders’ data management policies. However, when communicating, sharing and reporting personal data with the Sherborne Association UK directly, ICLs must follow our agreed policies.  Data will only be shared where explicit consent has been gained.

The Sherborne Association UK passes personal data on to International Course Leaders where explicit consent has been gained to do so for the purposes of arranging training for interested parties.

Historical Data

Prior to May 2018, the Sherborne Association UK holds some personal data (training records including names, addresses, dates of birth, places of work, email addresses, telephone numbers) in chronologically ordered sets of manual records.   The association is working towards holding all personal data electronically. In the interim, our chronologically ordered sets of manual records are stored securely and will only be used for their original intended purposes (training records).

Storage of Data

In accordance with GDPR regulations, personal data is processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data.  Digitally held data is stored securely and access is limited to those who require it in order to pursue the intended purposes. Manually held data is stored using appropriate physical storage solutions.

Consent

The Sherborne Association UK will actively gain consent to use personal data before the data is used or stored in any way.  This is an ‘opt in’ service and individuals can refuse consent without detriment to the service provided where this is possible (for example, the Sherborne Association UK will make individuals aware that if the Sherborne Association UK are not given permission to hold their data for our training records, the Sherborne Association UK will not be able to verify their training status at a later date).  The Sherborne Association UK will inform individuals about our procedures and their rights in regards to the use of storage of their personal data at the time of gaining consent. In accordance with the GDPR regulations, the Sherborne Association UK will identify our purposes for processing personal data, our retention periods for that personal data, and who it will be shared with when it is collected.

Any individual can check how their personal data is used and can retract, rectify, restrict or amend their data at any time, or can object to their use of personal data for specific purposes, or manage their preferences by emailing admin@sherbornemovementuk.org.  Please note that at present, this is not an automated service and is run by volunteers, so it may take up to one month to amend your changes in accordance with the GDPR regulations. The association is working towards an automated system which will make instant changes for some functions (such as email lists).

Subject Access Requests

Individuals have the right to access their personal data by making a ‘subject access request’ either verbally or in writing. The Sherborne Association UK will respond to a request within one month in accordance with the GDPR regulations. Individuals can make a ‘subject access request’ by emailing admin@sherbornemovementuk.org.

Data Breaches

In accordance with the GDPR, personal data breaches will be released to the relevant supervisory authority (ICO) within 72 hours of becoming aware of the breach, where feasible. If the breach is likely to result in a high risk of adversely affecting individuals’ rights and freedoms, the Sherborne Association UK will inform those individuals without undue delay.
