Who we are
SHE UK is a UK Registered Charity based in Nottinghamshire that offers a holistic range of support services for survivors of childhood sexual abuse, exploitation, and sexual violence. We also offer bespoke training and events for organisations and companies who would like to know more about these areas, in addition to training staff, expanding their knowledge base, and showing them how to deal sensitively with this issue.
SHE UKtakes your privacy seriously and will only use your information to administer the services you have requested from us. We will never release your data outside SHE UK for marketing purposes and we promise to keep your details safe and secure.
Why we collect your data
We collect your data when you enquire about or wish to access our support services, purchase a product/service (for example training or attend an event) from us and if you apply to work for us. We will store personal information such as your name, date of birth, contact details, as well as relevant additional information. In relation to training events, except where personal data is evidently confidential or personally sensitive, SHE UK may communicate with staff in your organisation (e.g., a personal assistant) to administer your purchase or event booking.
SHE UK processes information for certain legitimate business purposes, which includes some or all of the following:
- To provide you with information or regarding our support services
- To keep you informed of our support services and activities
- To respond to your queries
- To improve the services and support that we offer and increase our impact
- To analyse the personal information we collect about you so we can better understand client needs
- We may need to disclose your information if required to do so by law, but we will always ask for your consent. We will not pass on your details to anyone else without your express permission except in exceptional circumstances. Examples of this might include anyone reporting serious self-harm or posing a threat to others, children contacting us and sharing serious issues.
- To administer your training or event booking
- To keep you up to date with SHE UK services, training, projects and events
- To obtain feedback on any events you have attended to improve future events
When you become an SHE UK service user (or indeed purchase training or consultancy from us), we will capture your contact details to provide you with further information from us on a range of relevant topics. We may use the data we hold about you to help us personalise the information that we provide to you.
How we collect your data
We do this in several ways, including where you share information with us. Such as when:
- you request support or enquire about our services
- you make a donation to us
- you apply for a paid job or as a volunteer
- you provide us with details of delegates booked on to events/training
- you send correspondence electronically, on the phone, via post or in person
We treat your data with the utmost care and take appropriate steps to protect it.
When we'll share your data
We will only share your data with third parties under exceptional circumstances where there is a current risk of serious harm to yourself or others. Outside of this, we will not pass on your personal information unless we have your expressed permission or are required by law to do so.
And for people who wish to attend training with us we may share your data with your employer and third parties such as a courier to send out information, for example.
