Data Protection and Privacy Statement

Data Protection and Privacy Policy

Why is this important?

At Dove Nest Group we treat each learner and client as an individual. One of our core values is our passion for developing people. It shouldn’t surprise you to learn that we believe in upholding the rights of each and every learner and client.

We have policy and procedure in place to both protect the privacy of personal information and comply with relevant UK and EU regulations, including General Data Protection Regulation 2018 (GDPR); The Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations, 2003; and the Freedom of Information Act 2003.

We believe in being fair and transparent about what information we gather, how we use it and your rights. You are welcome to download a copy of our full policy – see link below. If you’re short of time, here’s a short summary of some of the key points.

What type of information is personal?

‘Personal data’ is defined as any data relating to a data subject, who can be identified from that data. It includes any other information which is in the possession of (or likely to come into the possession of) the data controller (in this case Dove Nest).

What type of information we collect

We collect and process data in line with Dove Nest’s legitimate business interests. It means that we ask for certain information in the course of providing a development programme or intervention. A few examples might include:

  • Your contact information – email, phone number, address
  • Any dietary preferences or allergies – where you participate in a residential event
  • Any medical conditions you choose to inform us of – where physical activities form a part of your programme
