Data collection

Informed consent is when an Individual/Service User clearly understands why their information is needed, who it will be shared with, the possible consequences of them agreeing or refusing the proposed use of the data, and then gives their consent.

CUCT will ensure that data is collected within the boundaries defined in this policy. This applies to data that is collected in person, or by completing a form.

When collecting data, CUCT will ensure that the Individual/Service User:

  • Clearly understands why the information is needed
  • Understands what it will be used for and what the consequences are should the Individual/Service User decide not to give consent to processing
  • As far as reasonably possible, grants explicit consent, either written or verbal for data to be processed
  • Is, as far as reasonably practicable, competent enough to give consent and has given so freely without any duress
  • Has received sufficient information on why their data is needed and how it will be used

Staff/volunteers who are asked to collect data on behalf of CUCT will be reminded of their responsibilities and will report any issues regarding these responsibilities to the Data Protection Officer.

Data Storage

Information and records relating to service users will be stored securely and will only be accessible to authorised staff and volunteers.

Information will be stored for only as long as it is needed or required statute and will be disposed of appropriately.

It is CUCT’s responsibility to ensure all personal and company data is non-recoverable from any computer system previously used within the organisation, which has been passed on/sold to a third party.

Staff/volunteers of CUCT will not store information or records relating to service users on shared computers/laptops, and agree that all data held on personal laptops/computers is held there for the minimum possible time, and is made non-recoverable as soon as this period has elapsed.
