How we use personal information
If you use Leicester Children’s Holidays’ service
Leicester Children’s Holidays supports children and families across Leicestershire by giving a child in need, a holiday. This also provides parents, families and carers time to themselves.
Our service is available to any child between the ages of 8-11 who lives in Leicestershire and Rutland. To nominate a child, please visit the Apply Page on our website and request an Application Pack, call 0116 251 9863 or email email@example.com. Anyone can apply to go on one of our holidays, please visit the FAQ page on our website for more information.
When contacting or using our service, you may be providing information including personally sensitive information for us to use and communicate with you. Some of this information which could be used to identify you is stored by us. This could be used for example to:
- Send out an application pack or volunteer pack via post or email.
- Talk to parents and carers on the phone about their child and record important medical information.
- When contacting us by letter, our staff will be able to see your postal address.
- Keeping parents and carers updated whilst their child is holiday via email newsletters.
In general, we try to keep as little information about you as possible. Staff may take notes when they talk to you to assist with your enquiry. These notes are kept for the purposes they were taken and then shredded. We don’t record your phone calls to Leicester Children’s Holidays but volunteers and staff may from time to time listen in to calls for training, support, or research purposes.
We record some statistical information on each contact we receive, to report on and improve our service. This includes non-identifiable information. This information is never used to report on specific people.
If we can’t deal with your enquiry straight away, we may agree to call you back or for you to call us again. In these cases, we will record information you’ve given us so that we know it’s you when you call again. We may need to share this information within Leicester Children’s Holidays, because we work as a team to provide you with the best possible service.
We may contact you if you are referred to us by another organisation or individual. Once we have contacted you we will destroy your contact details, unless you agree to further contact – in which case we will, with your consent, keep your contact details.
Leicester Children’s Holidays will never pass any of your information on to any other organisation, except in the following situations:
- We receive a call about acts of terrorism or bomb warnings
- We receive a court order requiring us to share information
- We are working in partnership with another organisation and you have given consent for your information to be shared
- You directly ask us to pass on information about you to someone else
- We are concerned that you are not able to make a decision for yourself
- You threaten the safety of our volunteers
- You misuse or compromise the delivery of our service,
Limiting or withdrawing access to our services
From time to time we have to take decisions to limit an individual’s access to our services. For example:
- If you contact us a lot in a short period of time we may need to manage your access to our service to ensure that others are able to get through to us.
- If we believe you are abusing our service or are abusive towards volunteers, we may use our system to block your calls or messages from getting through.
If we take the decision to limit your access to our systems, we will make every effort to inform you as to the reason why we have restricted your access.
If you wish to discuss your use of our services, please call 0116 2519863, email firstname.lastname@example.org or write to Leicester Children’s Holidays, Highcross, Upper Mall, Leicester, LE1 4FP. Please be aware your information may be visible to our staff and volunteers and may be logged for administrative purposes.
If you are abusive or threaten our staff/volunteers, we may report you to the police.
If you would like to volunteer with Leicester Children’s Holidays
Leicester Children’s Holidays is made up of one branch at Shaftesbury Hall, Holy Bones, Leicester, LE1 4LJ. This branch coordinates all volunteers, staff, trustees, service users and patrons. We need to collect, use, store and share certain information about applicants and volunteers to manage their application and involvement with the organisation. The need to use applicant and volunteer information in this way is known as a ‘legitimate interest’ of Leicester Children’s Holidays and is the lawful basis upon which Leicester Children’s Holidays handles personal data for these purposes.
This section sets out how your personal data will be used by Leicester Children’s Holidays to administer and coordinate your application and volunteering with us.
If you want to learn more about volunteering with Leicester Children’s Holidays
If you are interested in volunteering with Leicester Children’s Holidays, you can contact us through our website (www.leicesterchildrensholidays.co.uk), via the telephone, post, email, or at events.
You will be asked to give us your personal details so that we can contact you in relation to your enquiry. If you have contacted Leicester Children’s Holidays, we will pass this information on to our volunteer coordinator, so that they can get in touch to discuss volunteering opportunities.
Leicester Children’s Holidays will also use the information you have provided to assist you with any queries you might have regarding your volunteering application and to ask you about your experience of applying to volunteer with us.
Leicester Children’s Holidays also collects statistical information to help monitor enquiries and applications for volunteering, as well as to help us to carry out equal opportunity monitoring. As part of the application process, we may ask for information about your age, disability, gender, employment status and ethnicity (known as ‘sensitive personal information’) to help us with equal opportunities monitoring. You are not required to give us this information, but if you do so, we will use it for the purposes of managing your application and involvement with Leicester Children’s Holiday and equal opportunities monitoring only.
If you apply to be a volunteer
Once you have decided to apply to volunteer with Leicester Children’s Holidays, you will need to get in touch with us. We will explain how to submit your application form.
Leicester Children’s Holidays may need to share some of the information that you give in your application form with other members of staff and volunteers, such as the information from your referees and your criminal records disclosure.
The information you provide on your application form will be used to make a decision about whether you will be accepted as a volunteer. You may be asked for information about your age, disability, gender, employment status and ethnicity (known as ‘sensitive personal information’) to help Leicester Children’s Holidays with equal opportunities monitoring. You are not required to give this information, but if you do, we will use it for the purposes of managing your application and involvement with Leicester Children’s Holidays and equal opportunities monitoring only.
Leicester Children’s Holidays will keep the personal information you provide to us during the application process confidential, unless we are required to disclose it in connection with a police investigation and/or we have reason to believe that you may present a risk of harm to others.
We will provide a reference for volunteers upon request.
If you donate to Leicester Children’s Holidays
When you donate money to Leicester Children’s Holidays, we need to collect and use certain information about you in order to process your donation. This could include your name, email address, postal address, telephone or mobile number, bank details, taxpayer status (to understand if we can claim Gift Aid), date of birth and history of previous donations. We may also use the personal information you have provided, and information about you gathered from publically available sources (for example, details of your affiliation with other charities or companies), for research purposes. There is more information on this below.
When you make a donation via Leicester Children’s Holidays, your data is stored on a secure server and processed by our payment service provider, PayPal. PayPal provides a secure payment gateway – it uses internationally recognised encryption standards and security methods to keep your data safe.
If you donate to Leicester Children’s Holidays via your mobile phone either on a one-off or monthly basis, further terms and conditions will apply. We use an external supplier, to provide and administer the text-to-donate service. See our text-to-donate T&Cs for details of how your information will be used to process your donation and how you can let us know that you don’t want to receive additional communications from us.
As a charity that relies on donations, it is important that Leicester Children’s Holidays keeps the public updated on our vital work and campaigns. We also need to understand how we can best attract and communicate with new and existing supporters, in order to target our resources effectively. These are examples of Leicester Children’s Holidays’ ‘legitimate interests’ and are our lawful basis for using the personal information that you provide to us to:
- contact you by post to update you on our vital work and campaigns (from time to time these updates may include requests for financial support; you can let us know that you no don’t want to hear from us anymore at any time – see the ‘Keeping in Touch’ section of this Privacy Statement);
- invite you to participate in surveys or research (on a voluntary basis);
- carry out research into how we can better engage with and attract new supporters;
- carry out research into how we can better communicate with new and existing supporters;
- keep a record of your relationship with us; and
- keep in touch in relation to any legacy pledges you have made to Leicester Children’s Holiday.
Occasionally, Leicester Children’s Holidays works with external companies who analyse our donor information to determine geographical and demographic trends. This helps us to send the most effective communications to potential and existing supporters. We only work with suppliers who we trust to keep the personal details of our donors safe. We require our partners to comply with data protection laws and to put appropriate safeguards in place.
If our research identifies that you may be willing and able to support us, we may gather additional information about you, such as professional history, affiliation with other charities and companies, trusteeships or club and livery membership, using publicly available sources. These sources could include Companies House, company websites, Who’s Who, Debretts, LinkedIn, Charity Commission website and recent press coverage. We will use this information to determine which areas of Leicester Children’s Holidays work might be of greatest interest to you, in order to contact you with the most relevant information to see whether you are willing to support us.
We may use information from the same publicly available sources to identify who is responsible for a company’s or trust’s CSR, charitable giving and grant making policies and to identify an appropriate means of contact to enquire whether the organisation may consider supporting Leicester Children’s Holidays.
We may also aggregate and anonymise personal data that we collect, for research purposes. This anonymous data can no longer be linked to any particular person and may be used for a variety of purposes, such as identifying trends and patterns within our existing supporter base.
Research at Leicester Children’s Holidays
Leicester Children’s Holidays sometimes carries out research. We use this to help us develop our services and to inform our work in influencing government policy. This research may be carried out by Leicester Children’s Holidays staff or volunteers, or external research teams that are supported or commissioned by Leicester Children’s Holidays.
When carrying out research, we require informed consent from all individuals for all activities that involve contact between researchers (whether these are Leicester Children’s Holidays staff, volunteers or staff from an external institution) and research participants. This means that participants must be fully informed about the project, including how any personal data provided will be used and the degree of anonymity and confidentiality provided, before agreeing to take part. Participants must provide positive consent (which may be written or verbal) that they are happy with the basis of the project and how their data will be used before proceeding.
All electronic and hard copy data collected during research is stored securely and is accessible only by the designated researchers and for the purposes of the research project. Data is stored for a duration of time specific to each research project but will not be kept longer than is necessary for the purposes of that project. Once the data is no longer needed, it is destroyed.
From time to time Leicester Children’s Holidays researchers use externally hosted websites to conduct surveys. These websites may be hosted in countries or jurisdictions which do not provide the same level of data protection as the countries within the European Economic Area. You will be told if a website is hosted outside of the European Economic Area before you begin the survey, as well as other information about the purpose of research and how your data will be used. You will also be provided with a link to the survey host’s privacy statement. All survey participants are required to indicate that they consent to take part before they proceed to complete the survey, so by agreeing to take part, you will be providing consent to the use of your personal details and sensitive personal data (such as information about your emotional wellbeing) and the transfer of your data outside of the European Economic Area (where applicable).
Sharing your story
Some of our service users and supporters choose to tell us about their experiences to help further our work. This may include sharing sensitive personal information relating to their childhood experiences.
If we have the explicit consent of the individual, or their parent or guardian if they are under 18, we may use this information in materials promoting our campaigning and fundraising work, or in documents such as our annual report.
Keeping in touch
As a charity that relies on donations, it is important that Leicester Children’s Holidays keeps the public updated on our vital work and campaigns and that we let our potential and existing supporters know how they can continue to support us. These are examples of Leicester Children’s Holidays’ ‘legitimate interests’ and are our lawful basis for using the personal information that you provide to us to send you our updates by post. So, if you volunteer, fundraise or donate to us and you have given us your postal address, we will keep you up to date with Leicester Children’s Holidays’ activities and work by post. We will also ask you whether you would like to stay in touch by telephone, email or text message. You can also sign up to receive news about Leicester Children’s Holidays by email through our website or our Facebook Page.
You can update your contact preferences or let us know that you don’t want to hear from us any more at any time by emailing email@example.com or by calling us on 0116 2519863. If you tell us that you don’t want to receive our updates anymore, we will keep your details on a ‘suppression’ list to help ensure that we do not continue to send these to you. We may still need to contact you for administrative purposes, for example to process a donation you have made, or to give you information about an event you have registered for.

We will never sell your personal information to other organisations to use for their own marketing purposes.

You can tell us that you are not happy for your information to be used in this way by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We won’t be able to guarantee that you will never see one of our adverts again, as these may be generated from other sources on a randomised basis.

CCTV is installed for security, to protect both you and Leicester Children’s Holidays staff and volunteers. CCTV footage will only be viewed when necessary (for example to detect or prevent a crime) and is only stored on a temporary basis, other than where it has been flagged for review.

Storing your information
Where we store your information
Leicester Children’s Holidays operates in the UK, and stores our data within the European Economic Area (EEA).
We do use ‘cloud-based’ applications provided by external suppliers to collect, store and handle some types of personal information. These suppliers (e.g. Microsoft) may be based outside of the EEA. Where this is the case, we ask suppliers to provide evidence that they have the appropriate measures in place to ensure that your personal information is kept safe.
Leicester Children’s Holidays uses various technical and organisational measures to keep your data safe. Electronic data and databases are stored on secure computer systems and we control who has access to information, using both physical and electronic means. Our staff and volunteers receive data protection training and are provided with guidance that they are required to follow when handling personal information.
Although we do our best to keep your information safe, the transmission of information over the internet is never completely secure, so please bear this in mind when you share information with us via our website.
How long we keep your personal information for
We only keep your personal information for as long as required, depending on what it was collected for, and in accordance with legal requirements and tax and accounting rules.
If you have told us that you don’t want to be contacted by Leicester Children’s Holidays, we will keep your details on a ‘suppression’ list to help ensure that we do not continue to contact you.
