How we use data

At Simply Connect we take seriously our obligations under current Data Protection legislation.

We offer user registration to make it as easy as possible for you to find local activities that match your personal profile.

When you register your interest in a local service, we will forward your contact details and the reason for your contact to the local service provider.

If the service listed has the QA Mark, this will have been approved through your local partner please see a list here of all local partners.

We will also hold this information ourselves, to allow you to register your interest in another service without having to complete a new form and to present tailored activities for you.

Apart from the above reasons, your information will never be passed on to any other organisation without your permission unless we are legally obliged to do so.

We will supply you with contact details for the organisation that your enquiry is sent to. We are not responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other organisations you deal with or sites that you visit.

We may ask for information about disability and ethnicity to help us, the opportunity provider and the opportunity host with equal opportunities monitoring. By choosing to submit this information you consent to the processing of this information by us. This data will be anonymised before being shared with local partners.

Information you provide is also collated to help us to demonstrate our impact to funders and develop our service to further meet users’ needs.

Unless you choose to tick the relevant boxes, you will not receive further mailings other than a reply to your enquiry from the service provider.

Your details are automatically removed from our database if you have not used your account for more than three years. We will also remove your details if we are unable to contact you or you do not confirm your email address.

You are entitled to ask for a copy of the information we store about you. You are entitled to ask us to amend data you hold about you if you believe it is incorrect. You are entitled you ask that we delete your personal data tht we hold.
