Who we are
This is the privacy statement of Cattanach SCIO.
How we use your personal information generally
This privacy statement explains how we collect and use personal information about you.
We collect and use personal information for the following purposes:
- Grant application
A grant application will process information about the charity applicant, for the purpose of assessing the request for funding. In the main the assessment requires organisational information, but may include details of trustees, the board, employees, volunteers or relevant stakeholders. We will also process information relating to the organisation’s finances during assessment.
When personal information is required, this will be provided by the applicant, or through public records relating to the applicant such as OSCR or Companies House.
On occasion, we may seek an additional organisational reference, but would do so with the consent of the charity applicant.
We process this information for the purposes of our legitimate interests in ensuring that our grants are allocated to appropriate recipients.
We require the applicant to have authority to include any personal data and when such data is included in the application, to have made the affected parties aware of this privacy notice.
Our data processing is not automated.
Your application and associated emails will be held in our database for six years from the point of application or from the end of its funded period, whichever is later.
- Grant monitoring and Review
If you accept a grant offer from us, the terms and conditions of the grant set out that we will expect a report to be sent to us detailing the progress made against your nominated outcomes. The information processed at this point is made available from you.
Failure to provide this report would represent a breach of our grant agreement.
In the main the evaluation will contain organisational information. We cannot accept any information capable of identifying the individuals you have worked with. Should you reference details of trustees, the board, employees, volunteers or relevant stakeholders in your report, it is your responsibility to have their authority to do so and to make them aware of this privacy notice.
We process this information for the purposes of our legitimate interests in ensuring that grant funding we have provided is used in accordance with the terms of the grant award.
The processing of this information is not automated.
Your evaluation and associated emails will be held in our database for six years from the end of the funded period.
