Legal basis and why we need the information

We need the information in order to send you the eNewsletter. The legal basis we rely on for processing your personal data in this case is your consent.

What we do with the data

Your personal information will be kept secure within Leeds Cares using appropriate technical controls to protect your details. We will not sell, trade or lease your personal information to others.

We will retain the data on restricted access IT systems.  We share your details with our third-party IT providers, who assist us in providing our systems and databases. Our website provider is Banana Kick Ltd and Blue Logic (part of BCN Group Ltd) is our IT support provider.

We will pass your details to our third-party email marketing provider Mailchimp who processes our bulk email communications.  They are based in the USA and are accredited under the EU-US Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the USA. Their privacy notice can be accessed through the following link https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/

A file will be created on our Customer Relationship Management system using your personal information to record your interaction with us. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our eNewsletter.
