What is the Personal Information Used For?

The main purposes of the Databases and any paper records are to enable us to manage our communications with people and organisations that wish to hear from us. Using the personal information in the databases and paper records, we can send communications that we think will be of interest to you by email, phone, SMS, post, social media and other digital channels. The Databases also have a facility which enable you to manage the communications you receive more effectively.

The Databases are also a tool to enable us to match volunteering opportunities with members.

We can also use the Databases to provide insight and analysis to help us to continually improve the effectiveness of our communications, develop the products and services we offer our member organisations, monitor the reach of our communications and the diversity of the recipients and provide reports to funders and regulators.

Please note, except in the case of members, that information about your gender, racial or ethnic origin and physical or mental health or condition will only ever be used for statistical and monitoring purposes on an anonymised basis.

If you are interested in volunteering, the Databases allow you to voluntarily provide information about specific requirements you may have arising from a physical or mental health condition.

Sources of Information

The information contained in the Databases and paper records may be added to with information that has come from a variety of sources including:

  • information obtained directly from you
  • information obtained from organisations that are members of, or have an association with us – it may be that you work for one of these organisations or volunteer for them and the organisation has passed your details to us
  • information collected at events or training courses that we run
  • information that is publicly available including from on-line sources and social media
  • information that is generated by us and recorded in the Databases, such as your interests and communication preferences

The Legal Basis

We will only store your personal information in the databases and in paper format where we can do so lawfully. The data protection legislative framework provides for a limited number of reasons for processing personal information.

We are relying on the following lawful bases to process general information:

  • where we have your consent
  • where our processing of your personal data is in the public interest
  • where our processing of your personal data is necessary for our legitimate interests or those of a third party and are not overridden by your privacy rights

Paper records are securely stored with limited access.

You can also object to us storing and using your personal information at any time as outlined below.

This section of the Privacy Notice provides details of third parties with whom we may share the personal information contained in the Databases and paper records.

We may also run anonymised aggregated reports off the databases and share these with our funders, Welsh Government, local authorities, health boards and the Charity Commission. These reports may also be published. However, we will not share your personal information with these bodies or give them access to the ‘raw’ data on which the reports are based. The Men’s Health may appoint an external researcher to help us with this work, who would have access to the information contained in the Databases.

We are only able to keep your personal information for as long as it is necessary for us to do so. We only intend to keep your information in an identifiable form in the Databases and paper records while you remain happy to keep receiving communications from us, or while you wish to be informed of volunteering opportunities.
