The Youth Radio Network Data Protection Policy 

  1. Introduction

The Youth Radio Network needs to collect and use certain types of information about the Individuals or Service Users who come into contact with The Youth Network in order to carry on our work. This personal information must be collected and dealt with appropriately whether is collected on paper, stored in a computer database, or recorded on other material and there are safeguards to ensure this under the Data Protection Act 1998.

  1. Data Controller

The Youth Network is the Data Controller under the Act, which means that it determines what purposes personal information held, will be used for. It is also responsible for notifying the Information Commissioner of the data it holds or is likely to hold, and the general purposes that this data will be used for.

  1. Disclosure

The Youth Network may share data with other agencies such as the local authority, funding bodies and other voluntary agencies.

The Individual/Service User will be made aware in most circumstances how and with whom their information will be shared.  There are circumstances where the law allows The Youth Network to disclose data (including sensitive data) without the data subject’s consent.  

These are:

  1. Carrying out a legal duty or as authorised by the Secretary of State
  2. Protecting vital interests of an Individual/Service User or other person
  3. The Individual/Service User has already made the information public
  4. Conducting any legal proceedings, obtaining legal advice or defending any legal rights
  5. Monitoring for equal opportunities purposes – i.e. race, disability or religion
  6. Providing a confidential service where the Individual/Service User’s consent cannot be obtained or where it is reasonable to proceed without consent: e.g. where we would wish to avoid forcing stressed or ill Individuals/Service Users to provide consent signatures.

The Youth Network regards the lawful and correct treatment of personal information as very important to successful working, and to maintaining the confidence of those with whom we deal. 

 

The Youth Network intends to ensure that personal information is treated lawfully and correctly.

 

To this end, The Youth Network will adhere to the Principles of Data Protection, as detailed in the Data Protection Act 1998.

  1. Shall be processed fairly and lawfully and, in particular, shall not be processed unless specific conditions are met,

  3. Shall be adequate, relevant and not excessive in relation to those purpose(s)
  4. Shall be accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date,
  5. Shall not be kept for longer than is necessary
  6. Shall be processed in accordance with the rights of data subjects under the Act,
  7. Shall be kept secure by the Data Controller who takes appropriate technical and other measures to prevent unauthorized or unlawful processing or accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, personal information,
  8. Shall not be transferred to a country or territory outside the European Economic Area unless that country or territory ensures an adequate level of protection for the rights and freedoms of Individuals/Service Users in relation to the processing of personal information.

The Youth Network will, through appropriate management and strict application of criteria and controls:
