Personal data means any data which identifies a living person. Processing personal data (collecting, storing, using, altering, sharing or destroying personal information) is governed by the UK Data Protection Act (2018).

The Wales Co-operative Training and Development Centre Ltd (trading as the Wales Co-operative Centre) is the data controller (contact details below). This means it decides how your personal data is processed and for what purposes.
The Wales Co-operative Centre complies with its obligations under GDPR by keeping personal data up to date; by storing and destroying it securely; by not collecting or retaining excessive amounts of data; by protecting personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access and disclosure and by ensuring that appropriate technical measures are in place to protect personal data.
We use your personal data for the following purposes: –
- To deliver the services you’ve requested from us
- To monitor and report on the number of individuals and enterprises taking part in projects and the number of people from different groups being supported
- To fulfil the reporting requirements of our project funders
- To evaluate the impact of services on the individuals and enterprises who took part
- For audit and verification purposes
- To inform you about similar services, activities or events (in accordance with the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations)
Processing is necessary for the performance of a contract we have with you to deliver a service, or to take steps to enter into a contract with you.
Processing is also necessary for the legitimate interests of the Wales Co-operative Centre, so that we can monitor and evaluate our services and inform you about similar services, activities or events.
Provision of your data is a contractual requirement – without it, we are unable to deliver the service you have requested from us.
Your personal data will be treated as strictly confidential, and will be shared only with the following:
- Third parties acting on our behalf who are helping us deliver the service
- Third parties acting on our behalf who are helping us evaluate the service
- Funders who have paid for the service
- Third party mailing houses
Third parties are contractually required to protect your data and comply with GDPR.
The Centre will never pass on your information to another organisation for them to market directly to you or your organisation
Our project funders determine how long we must keep your data. Your data is kept for no longer than necessary in case of any complaints, legal claims or auditing queries. For details of specific project retention dates, please contact us using the details below.
You have the following rights with respect to your personal data:
- The right to request a copy of your personal data which the Wales Co-operative Centre holds about you;
- The right to request that the Wales Co-operative Centre corrects any personal data if it is found to be inaccurate or out of date;
- The right to request your personal data is erased where it is no longer necessary for the Wales Co-operative Centre to retain such data;
- The right to request that the Wales Co-operative Centre provides you with your personal data and where possible, to transmit that data directly to another data controller;
- The right, where there is a dispute in relation to the accuracy or processing of your personal data, to request a restriction is placed on further processing;
- The right to object to the processing of personal data;
- The right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioners Office.
In most instances your data remains within the UK, or within the European Economic Area which is recognised in UK law as having adequate safeguards for your data protection rights.
We may transfer your personal information to countries outside the EEA or to an international organisation. Where we transfer your personal information outside the EEA, we will ensure that adequate safeguards are used to secure the data.
Where organisations or platforms that we work with operate globally or use services outside the UK we will take reasonable steps to ensure that safeguards such as a UK adequacy decision, or model contract clauses are in place to protect personal data.
We do not carry out automated decision making with your personal data.
If we wish to use your personal data for a new purpose, not covered by this Data Protection Notice, then we will provide you with a new notice explaining this new use before we start the processing and setting out the relevant purposes and processing conditions. Where and whenever necessary, we will seek your prior consent to the new processing.
