Data Protection Policy

As with all organisations in the Bailiwick of Guernsey, and indeed elsewhere, which hold personal data on individuals it is necessary for the Trust to adhere to the relevant rules and legislation in force from time to time to ensure suitable protection is provided to individuals.  These individuals are generally known as Data Subjects, in respect of sensitive and confidential personal data held by the Trust for legitimate reasons.

This document sets out the general principles of the Data Protection Law, and their relevance in the context of the Trust and the procedures under which the Trust and its Trustees will handle and collate personal data when required to do so.

The Trust has nominated Jennifer Le Prevost as the Trustee responsible for this Policy, with oversight of the operation of the data handling procedures as outlined hereunder

Please take note that a separate document sets out in concise terms the Trust’s Privacy Policy, which is available on request and on our website

This Data Protection Policy has been agreed by all Trustees of the Trust and is effective from 25 May 2018.

Data Protection Principles

The over-riding principles of Data Protection in simple terms equate to:

  • Keep data secure;
  • Only hold personal data for a specific purpose and use it only for that purpose;
  • Ensure the data subjects are aware of what the personal data is being used for, and allow them free access on request;
  • Permit access on a need-to-know basis;
  • Keep the data up to date and accurate; and
  • Maintain the data as long as only necessary and then destroy the data (unless there are over-riding reasons that apply).

The following information contains the Personal data that is held at any time:

  1. Name
  2. Email address
  3. Telephone no

In certain circumstances, where more details personal data is required for legal, medical, travel or insurance purposes, some or all of the following information will be held by the Trust:

  1. Date of birth
  2. Passport details
  3. Allergies
  4. Medical conditions

All such personal data is subject to correct handling by the Trust.  Always and in general terms, the following principles will be remembered and complied with:

  1. Data Processing – must be lawful, transparent and fair;
  2. Purpose – data must only be held for the required purpose and cannot be used for any other purpose;
  3. Accuracy – data should be kept up to date as is possible and either rectified or deleted when no longer required or appropriate;
  4. Data Security – data is to be held with access on a need-to-know basis only in a securely protected environment;
  5. Data Minimisation – the minimum amount of personal information should be held for the specific purpose required and must be relevant to that specific purpose;
  6. Data Retention – data should be retained no longer than is necessary;
  7. Data Breaches – in the event of a breach of data security, this will be reported to the Responsible Trustee who will determine the action that needs to be taken, which may involve change of data handling procedures, training and if deemed appropriate, a report to the Data Protection Commissioner; and
  8. Accountability – the Responsible Trustee must demonstrate adherence to rules at all times, if required to do so.

Data Handling Arrangements

Unless authorised in advance personal data is not shared outside the Trust.

Data Subject Requests

Under the Data Protection law each Data Subject is entitled to request copies of their personal data held by the Trust.

The Trust is obliged to provide copies of the relevant data within one monte of the request being received.

Data Subject leaving the Trust

An over-riding principle of the Data Protection Law is for Data Controllers to hold individual data for the specified purpose only and for only as long as required to meet the requirements of the Trust.  The data subject may request that their data is destroyed.

Data Breaches

Certain types of data breach must be reported to the Data Protection authorities in Guernsey (the Data Protection Commissioner), but is only required in cases where the breach could result in damage to reputation, loss of confidentiality discrimination or social disadvantage.  The responsible officer will make the determination on a case by case basis.

The Data Protection Commissioner will also handle any complaints raised by a Data Subject on the handling by the Data Controller of any personal data held on that individual.

Data Processor

The Trust does not currently use or have a requirement for a separate Data Processor to process the personal data held on individuals.

Information Provided to Data Subjects

Data Protection Law requires certain information to be given to Data Subjects so that those Data Subjects are kept properly informed on relevant matters.  The salient point to remember is that the Data Subjects have rights of access to and security of their personal data, and can request access to their data, make formal complaints about the handling of their data and when no longer required, have the right for their data to be deleted (the Right to be Forgotten).

Trust Responsibility

The Trust acknowledges the incumbent responsibilities in connection with the processing and holding of personal data as required under Data Protection Law.

This Policy will be reviewed on a regular basis and amended in light of changes in Data Protection Law or general practice.
