A. What does this policy cover?
This privacy policy sets out how Jewish Child’s Day processes personal data (that is, information by which an individual can be identified or which can be related to an identifiable individual) collected by us in the course of our lawful activities, and explains our obligations and your rights under the Data Protection Act 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation and any related or subsequent UK legislation or regulations (‘Data Protections laws’). This policy has been put in place to protect your rights under the Data Protection laws, and it is important that you understand what we will do with your data and are happy with this.

Jewish Child’s Day is a registered charity (no. 1195764) and is the ‘data controller’ within the meaning of the Data Protections laws for the purposes of this policy, except as stated otherwise. This policy extends to Jewish Child’s Day’s staff, trustees, volunteers and to the extent set out below, anyone else processing data on our behalf from time to time.

B. Why do we process your data?
Organisations are permitted to process personal data if they have a legal basis for doing so. Jewish Child’s Day processes data on the basis that:

  • Express and informed consent has been given by the person whose data is being processed or, in the case of a child who is too young to provide such consent, by their parent/guardian;
  • Jewish Child’s Day has a legitimate interest in processing the data; and/or
  • It is necessary in relation to a contract, agreement or ongoing arrangement for the provision of services which someone has entered into with Jewish Child’s Day or because someone has asked for something to be done so they can enter into a contract, agreement or arrangement with us; and/or
  • Jewish Child’s Day has a legal obligation to process data.

We may also process data that has been shared with us by another Data Controller, such as a school whose pupils are taking part in a Jewish Child’s Day activity. In such cases, Jewish Child’s Day may be a Data Processor within the meaning of the Data Protection laws, but will still process data in such a way as to protect its privacy and security and in accordance with the stipulations regarding its use made by the Data Controller. Where this is the case, Jewish Child’s Day relies on the party sharing data with us that all requisite permissions, consents or other legal bases for sharing the data have been obtained or complied with.

If and to the extent that Jewish Child’s Dayis relying on solely consent as the basis for processing data, we are required to obtain your explicit consent and you can modify or withdraw this consent at any time by notifying us in writing, although this may affect the extent to which we are able to provide services to or interact with you in future.

We may change this policy from time to time and any such changes will be published online at Notwithstanding any change to this policy, we will continue to process your personal data in accordance with your rights and our obligations in law. This policy was last reviewed on20 December 2019.
