Care for Veterans – Privacy Notice
In this privacy notice, ‘we’, ‘us’ and ‘our’ means Care for Veterans. Our privacy guidelines are simple. We will be transparent about the types of data we collect and why it is collected. No service can ever be completely secure, but be reassured that every effort, organisational and technological, is made to ensure security is maintained. We are “data controllers” for the purpose of the legislation.
We collect data from different subject groups, principally our residents, our resident’s relatives, our supporters and our staff. This data is stored securely and is not shared with any third party without the explicit consent of the data subject. We do not sell data to any third parties. Most of the data is stored on our own server and for any that is stored off-site, it is held on servers within the United Kingdom. No data is sent abroad unless one of the four subject groups above requests the transfer.
This statement explains the information we collect from you and explains how we will use it. Personal information is any information that can be used to identify a natural person, or that can be linked to that natural person.
