Your Right to object

Article 21 of the GDPR gives individuals the right to object to the processing of their personal data at any time. This effectively allows you to stop or prevent us from processing your personal data.

An objection may be in relation to all of the personal data we hold about you or only to certain information. It may also only relate to a particular purpose we are processing the data for.

We currently collect and process the following information:

  • Personal identifiers, contacts and characteristics (for example, name, address, phone numbers, e mail addresses, date of birth.)
  • Some projects keep information on a person’s medical conditions if relevant
  • Details of emergency contact person
  • Details of other agencies and referrers associated with you

  • Employees PAYE, bank and pension information
  • Some projects collect data on your marital status, care package status, ethnicity, if you are a carer
  • Some projects collect your G.P.s name and address

How we get the information and why we have it

Most of the personal information we process is provided to us directly by you for one or more of the following reasons:

  • To enable us to contact you
  • To contact another person in an emergency
  • Relevant medical information to help us deliver the best service for you, e.g. 1-1 stroke peer support and also to help you quickly if you have a medical emergency when partaking in an activity with us.
  • Disabilities information so we can make sure you get the support you need from us
  • PAYE, bank and pension info so we can process your salary and expenses
  • Data on your marital status, care package status, ethnicity, if you are a carer, so we can supply anonymous data to our financial donors
  • P. info in case of a medical emergency when participating in activities with us
  • Photographs for publicity

We also receive personal information indirectly, from the following sources in the following scenarios:

  • A person or organisation that has referred you into one of our services, with your consent, to enable you to participate in RGCIC activities

Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the lawful bases we rely on for processing this information are:

(a) Your Consent  Your consent will be sought to hold your personal data. You have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. Please contact us if you would like to withdraw consent.

(b) We have a contractual obligation. This relates to contracts drawn up between RGCIC and employees, volunteers and third party referrers.

(c) We have a legal obligation. This mainly relates to children, vulnerable adults and employees. For example we need to process some data to safeguard people and keep them safe and well. We also have legal obligations regarding employees’ data.

(d) We have a vital interest. In the case of medical information, we sometimes need to keep this in order to protect people medically, for example data about someone’s medicine they need when in our care, or allergy information.

(e) We have a legitimate interest. This means the information we hold about you helps us to carry out our services to you. We also use it to provide anonymized data for fundraising and reporting to funders.

(f) Medical and health information is subject to Article 9(2) of the GDPR: This means that in addition to (a) – (e) when we process health information about you  RGCIC will also process information according to an extra lawful basis. The processing of this data has to be used for the purposes of preventive or occupational medicine, for the assessment of the working capacity of the employee, the provision of health or social care services.

 The processing of an individual’s data may fall under 1 or more lawful bases.
