The Trust has considered its responsibilities under the new General Data Protection Regulation and notes that this regulation recognises legitimate interest as a lawful justification for the keeping of information about ‘natural persons’ which we take to mean private individuals making applications for funding.
The Trust only collects information about possible beneficiaries via this web site using its on-line application form and only data that it considers necessary to fulfil its charitable functions. It does not transfer any of this information to third parties except in its annual financial report and newsletter. It does not retain or process any further data other than information about amounts of funding provided and about general categories of application.
Other than quarterly statistics about numbers of applications submitted it does not retain any data from unsuccessful applications from individuals for a period longer than six months. In the case of successful applications from individuals only information from the forms is retained and any accompanying documents, in particular CVs, are destroyed within six months.
If you are an individual applicant or beneficiary (or any other type of applicant or beneficiary who thinks that they may have included information about any private individual which should not be retained) who wishes any information to be destroyed for reasons of privacy or inaccuracy, please request this of the Trust via our Removal of Data Request form and it will comply as soon as reasonably practical.
The Fenton Arts Trust is committed to being a transparent funder, and publishes information about grants awarded in a variety of formats and media, which currently includes our website, annual report and newsletter. We work with 360Giving to publish information about our grants, and agree that with better information, grant makers can be more effective and strategic decision-makers. 360Giving provides support for grant makers to publish their grants data openly, to understand their data, and to use the data to create online tools that make grant- making more effective. For more information, visit www.threesixtygiving.org.
The type of information that will be published about our grants is summary information, and may include the following:
- The name of the organisation or individual that has been awarded funding
- Project title/Headline description
- Amount awarded
- Geographical location (organisations only)
Using the 360Giving Data Standard, our awarded grants since November 2018 are available as an Excel file here: 360Giving 19-20 Beneficiary data
