Under the Data Protection Act, we have a legal duty to protect any information we collect from you. We do not pass on your details to any third party unless you give us permission to do so.
Totton College is part of Nacro, the social justice charity, which will be collecting your data. Nacro and Totton College will maintain the confidentiality of personal data held or processed and increase the access given to individuals to information relating to them.
The term Totton College also includes Forest First Pre-School, Opus Salon, Wells Unit and Bluebird House.
Why do we collect information from you?
If you have submitted your email address to the site, we may in future communicate with you to give you the opportunity to opt in to further email communications from us. These further communications may be sent from time to time to inform you about our activities and services.
We collect data from our website for a number of reasons, primarily to provide you with the most useful and relevant information and services from our organisation and our related organisations. We do this through collecting and analysing both anonymous, or aggregate, data, and personal data volunteered by you online.
What information do we collect?
In some areas of our website, for example, forms, emails, polls and survey submissions, we collect personal data such as your name, address, telephone number and email. We may use this personally identifiable information to customise the content on the websites and to such visitors’ current and future needs and to process any requests, applications or transactions undertaken by you and for internal administration and analysis. We use this information only for the reason you have supplied it or any other reason for which you have given us permission to do so. Nacro and Totton College do not sell, rent, or disclose any information to third parties for their marketing purposes.
How do we communicate with you?
Where relevant, information is provided to explain why the data is being collected and how it will be used. In these cases we will ask you to ‘opt-in’ to receive future communications including email, or text marketing. If you are opted in, when we communicate with you specifically, you may, by ticking the appropriate box provided, tell us that you do not want future communications from us.
What do you consent to about your data?
If you enter sensitive personal data, including but not limited to your racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or spiritual beliefs or your physical or mental health or condition, you hereby consent to the use of such data.
What are your rights to your data?
You have the right to access and rectify or request deletion of personal data. You also have the right to object to Nacro and Totton College processing your data and the right to get us to transfer your data to you.
Why should you share your data with us?
Providing the data we request will enable you to access information not available to web users who do not provide such data. For example, you may be put in touch with a local service or be sent course details. Not providing such data will mean that you won’t receive this information or be able to contact specific services within Nacro and Totton College.
What other data do we collect from you?
In addition to information given explicitly by you, we also collect information about your visit to our website (for example, the date and time of your visit and the pages that you view). This information is not connected to you personally, and is in aggregate form. This kind of data helps us to understand how our visitors use our site so that future website development can better meet your needs.
How do we collect this other data and what are cookies?
