As part of new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) legislation, we would like to be transparent about how Cura handles and secures personal data included within a grant application.
Once received, grant applications are given a unique reference number and it is this which is referred to along with the specific circumstances of the application when discussed and considered at trustee meetings. Applications are stored securely for no longer than two years and this is for financial purposes only. After this time they are permanently deleted or disposed of securely. We do not share information with a third party unless we receive your explicit consent to do so. If information is sent from healthcare colleagues to a trustee it will be done so via encrypted email or by post marked ‘private and confidential’.
We have put in place all reasonable technical, security and procedural controls required to protect your personal information in whatever format we hold that information in.
An overview of the GDPR legislation which we comply with is available from www.ICO.org.uk. Cura is registered with the Information Commissioners Office
