This is the privacy notice of Positive Role Models ("we", "our", or "us"). We are company number 8613862 registered in United Kingdom.
Our registered office is at 30 Birrell House, Stockwell Road, SW9 9JH
This privacy notice aims to inform you about how we collect and process any information that we collect from you, or that you provide to us. It covers information that could identify you (“personal information”) and information that could not. In the context of the law and this notice, “process” means collect, store, transfer, use or otherwise act on information. It tells you about your privacy rights and how the law protects you.
We are committed to protecting your privacy and the confidentiality of your personal information. Our policy is not just an exercise in complying with the law, but a continuation of our respect for you and your personal information.
We undertake to preserve the confidentiality of all information you provide to us, and hope that you reciprocate.
Our policy complies with the Data Protection Act 2018 (Act) accordingly incorporating the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The law requires us to tell you about your rights and our obligations to you in regard to the processing and control of your personal data. We do this now, by requesting that you read the information provided at http://www.knowyourprivacyrights.org
Except as set out below, we do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any information collected through our website.
1. Data we process
We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you. We have collated these into groups as follows:
Your identity information includes your name, date of birth, and other identifiers that you may have provided at some time.
Your contact information includes your postal address, email address, telephone numbers and any other information you have given to us for the purpose of communication or meeting.
Technical information includes your internet protocol (IP) address, browser type and version, time zone setting and location, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform and other technology on the devices you use to access this website.
We may aggregate anonymous data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Anonymous data is data that does not identify you as an individual. Aggregated data may be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal information in law because it does not reveal your identity.
However, if we combine or connect aggregated data with your personal information so that it can identify you in any way, we treat the combined data as personal information and it will be used in accordance with this privacy notice.
2. Special personal information
Special personal information is data about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health and genetic and biometric data.
It also includes information about criminal convictions and offences.
We may process special personal information about you if there is a lawful basis on which to do so.
3. If you do not provide personal information we need
Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you, and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform that contract. In that case, we may have to stop providing a service to you. If so, we will notify you of this at the time.
The bases on which we process information about you
The law requires us to determine under which of six defined bases we process different categories of your personal information, and to notify you of the basis for each category.
If a basis on which we process your personal information is no longer relevant then we shall immediately stop processing your data.
If the basis changes then if required by law we shall notify you of the change and of any new basis under which we have determined that we can continue to process your information.
4. Information we process with your consent
Through certain actions, such as when you sign up to join a workshop or a mentoring programme, agree to become a mentor or give a workshop, or even simply browse our website, you provide your consent to us to process information that may be personal information.
Wherever possible, we aim to obtain your explicit consent to process this information.
We continue to process your information on this basis until you withdraw your consent or it can be reasonably assumed that your consent no longer exists.
You may withdraw your consent at any time by telling us. However, if you do so, you may not be able to use our services further.
5. Information we process for the purposes of legitimate interests
We may process information on the basis there is a legitimate interest, either to you or to us, of doing so.
Where we process your information on this basis, we do after having given careful consideration to:
whether the same objective could be achieved through other means
whether processing (or not processing) might cause you harm
whether you would expect us to process your data, and whether you would, in the round, consider it reasonable to do so
For example, we may process your data on this basis for the purposes of:
record-keeping for the proper and necessary administration of our organisation
responding to unsolicited communication from you to which we believe you would expect a response
protecting and asserting the legal rights of any party
insuring against or obtaining professional advice that is required to manage organisational risk
protecting your interests where we believe we have a duty to do so
6. Information we process because we have a legal obligation
Sometimes, we must process your information in order to comply with a statutory obligation.
For example, we may be required to give information to legal authorities if they so request or if they have the proper authorisation such as a search warrant or court order.
This may include your personal information.
Specific uses of information you provide to us
7. Sharing your personal information with other people
If you have asked us to join a workshop or be placed on a mentorship programme, then it may be necessary to provide some of the other participants, such as the workshop holder or mentor, with personal information about you.
We do not provide your personal information to our sponsorship partners without having obtained your explicit consent.

9. Personal identifiers from your browsing activity
Requests by your web browser to our servers for web pages and other content on our website are recorded.
This technical information is recorded for security purposes. Theoretically, if combined with other information we know about you from previous visits, the data possibly could be used to identify you personally. However, we do not process it in such a way.
10. Data may be processed outside the European Union
Our business is based in the UK.
Our website hosting provider, Wix, is based in Israel. Israel is considered by the European Commission to offer an adequate level of protection for the personal information of EU Member State residents.
Your personal information, including photographs, may be stored through Wix’s data storage, databases and the general Wix applications. Data is stored on secure servers behind a firewall.
Your data may be maintained, processed and stored by Wix and their authorised affiliates and service providers in the United States of America, in Europe (including in Lithuania, Germany and Ukraine), in Israel, and in other jurisdictions as necessary for the proper delivery of their services and/or as may be required by law.
Wix affiliates and service providers that store or process your data on Wix’s behalf are each contractually committed to keep it protected and secured, in accordance with industry standards and regardless of any lesser legal requirements which may apply in their legal jurisdiction.
11. Control over your own information
It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes.
At any time you may contact us to request that we provide you with the personal information we hold about you.
When we receive any request to access, edit or delete personal identifiable information we shall first take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting you access or otherwise taking any action. This is important to safeguard your information.
12. If you are under 18 years of age
If you are under 13
If you are under the age of 13, by law we need the consent of one of your parents or a guardian if you would like to sign up for any of our services or to communicate with us.
If you are over 13
We may process your personal information with your consent if you are over 13 years of age, providing that we believe that you are informed about the consequences of us doing so.
We may insist that if you want to use any of our services, that we gain the approval of one of your parents or a guardian.
13. Communicating with us
When you contact us, whether by telephone, through our website or by e-mail, we collect the data you have given to us in order to reply with the information you need.
We keep identity and contact information so as to be able to track our communications with you.
When we receive a complaint, we record all the information you have given to us. We use that information to resolve your complaint.
If the complaint relates to content we have posted on our website or a social media account, then if we feel it is justified or if we believe the law requires us to do so, we shall remove the content while we investigate.
If we think your complaint is vexatious or without any basis, we shall not correspond with you about it.
If your complaint reasonably requires us to contact some other person, we may decide to give to that other person some of the information contained in your complaint. We do this as infrequently as possible, but it is a matter for our sole discretion as to whether we do give information, and if we do, what that information is.
If a dispute is not settled then we hope you will agree to attempt to resolve it by engaging in good faith with us in a process of mediation or arbitration.
If you are in any way dissatisfied about how we process your personal information, you have a right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO). This can be done at https://ico.org.uk/make-a-complaint/. We would, however, appreciate the opportunity to talk to you about your concern before you approach the ICO.

to provide you with the services you have requested
to comply with other law, including for the period demanded by our tax authorities
to support a claim or defence in court
