Keeping your personal information safe is very important to us. We are committed to complying with privacy and data protection laws and being transparent about how we process personal data.
We have policies, procedures and training in place to help our employees understand their data protection responsibilities and follow the data protection principles.
How we collect personal data
We may collect your personal data in different ways, for example:
- when you, your parent or guardian, your tutor or coach communicate with us by post, telephone, SMS, email or via our website
- from the information you provide to us when you make an application for livery, to work for us, or from third parties such as your previous or current employers so we can verify details about you
- as you interact with us in other ways; as a contractor, or in any other capacity
How we use personal information
We collect and use personal information about our liveries, staff and job applicants for different purposes.
Livery application, dealing with complaints, employee administration and recruitment
We only collect personal information that we genuinely need.
This may include:
- Contact details such as name address, email address and phone numbers
- Bank details and any purchases you have made
- Date of birth and gender
- Name of your parent or guardian (if you are under 18)
- Name and contact details of any next of kin
- In respect of job applicants, we may also collect:
- your bank account details, tax and residency status
- references from previous employers or educational institutions
- contact details for your family members and next of kin
- information concerning your health and medical conditions
- information about your race, ethnicity and sexual orientation
- details of criminal convictions
If you contact us, we will use the information that you provide to email you information about any available livery vacancy. You can opt out by emailing your preference at any time if you wish to no longer be on the livery waiting list. Our legal basis for using your personal information in this way is consent.
Dealing with complaints
If a complaint or an appeal is raised with us, we will process the personal information that is provided to us to manage and resolve the complaint. This may include sharing relevant information with an affiliated organisation, such as The BEF or a riding club, a coach, welfare officer or other organisation, depending upon the nature of the complaint and the area it relates to. Our legal basis for using personal information for this purpose is to fulfil our legitimate interest and fulfil our objective of resolving complaints in a careful and appropriate manner.
Employee administration and recruitment
We will process personal information of our employees to fulfil our contract with them. This includes payroll processing and the provision of training. We are required by law to share some financial information with the HMRC. We may also need to share some personal information with other organisations, for example solicitors, pension providers. Our legal basis for using your information for this is for the performance of a contract.
If you provide us with information about yourself, such as a resume or curriculum vitae, in connection with a job or volunteer application or enquiry, we may use this information to process your enquiry. We will not store this information for any purpose other than that relating to your application. Our legal basis for using your information in this way is for our legitimate interest.
