South Yorkshire Funding Advice Bureau (SYFAB) is a wholly owned subsidiary of SYCF. Since 2013 we have been helping them to support local community groups to achieve their
charitable aims and to build stronger, more resilient communities across South Yorkshire. We provide information, advice and training on funding and fundraising to community
2. WHOSE DATA DO WE COLLECT?
We collect data on community and voluntary organisations, individuals and groups who are interested in using our website services, receiving our newsletters, learning about
or attending our training courses and/or our events.
3. HOW WE COLLECT YOUR DATA
The information we hold about you has been provided directly to us by you except when your colleague or employer has booked you onto a training course.
Your activities and involvement with SYFAB will result in personal data being created, for example when you register to our site; request email newsletters or training and
event information; book (or are booked) on a training course; or attend an event and request that we add you to our mailing list.
We collect it as you use our website. Please see our Cookies Policy below for details.
4. WHAT WE COLLECT
SYFAB is the ‘controller’ of the personal data you (the ‘data subject’) provide to us. We will usually collect basic personal data about you like your name, your group’s name,
postal address (optional) and telephone number (optional), and your email address. We also ask about the income level and structure of your group, for monitoring purposes.
We do not normally collect or store sensitive data (such as information relating to health, beliefs or political affiliation) about you. However, there are some situations where
this will occur including, but not exclusively, if:
- An accident or incident occurs on our property, at one of our events or involving one of our staff
- If you are attending one of our events and have disclosed specific access or dietary needs
5. WHAT WE DO WITH THE INFORMATION WE GATHER
The law allows us to process your data if it is in our legitimate interest to do so, but only so long as we need to and your “interests or your fundamental rights and freedoms
We will process your personal information for our legitimate business and charitable interests, which include some or all of the following:
- Internal record keeping
- To undertake statistical analysis
- To improve our communication and services
- To send you newsletters and information about our training courses and events. You will always have the ability to decline future contact.
- Maintaining a database of contacts and helping us respect your choices and preferences (e.g. if you ask not to receive our newsletter, we’ll keep a record of this).
- We evaluate, categorise and profile personal data in order to tailor materials, services and communications, and prevent unwanted material from filling up your inbox.
6. WHO WE SHARE YOUR DATA WITH AND PROTECTING YOUR DATA
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure.
We will not share information about your individual visits to our website or any of the personal information that you provide with anyone else or any other organisation unless
it is necessary for the purpose for which you give us the data. For example, we provide data to third parties known as Data Processors, to provide specific services to us. A contract
is in place with a Data Processor and they are not allowed to do anything with your data other than that which we have requested.
If we run an event in partnership with other named organisations, or if we refer you to another partner your details may need to be shared but we will ask for your consent first.
We will not retain your information for longer than is necessary. Relationships between community groups and SYFAB are often long term, and so we expect to keep your data for
as long as that relationship exists. If you request that we have no further contact with you, we will keep some basic information in order to avoid sending you unwanted materials in
the future and to ensure that we don’t accidentally duplicate information.
