The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) stipulate that all client data should be collected for a specific purpose, used only for that purpose and only retained if it continues to meet that purpose.
The type of personal data we will collect and process on you as a client may vary from time to time, but it will always relate to your application and further processing of your support contract.
At all times, your personal data will be treated as strictly confidential.
The purpose of this form is for you to acknowledge and accept that Haven First holds personal data about you and to request your consent to the processing by the Charity.
Consent is not defined in the Data Protection Act. However, the European Data Protection Directive (to which the Act gives effect) defines an individual’s consent as:
…any freely given specific and informed indication of their wishes by which the data subject signifies their agreement to personal data relating to them being processed.
