The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation supports the protection of consumers' privacy rights as a fundamental element of our business and always operates within Data Protection and Privacy legislation. At the Foundation supporter and the employee level, we support industry codes of practice and have developed internal policies that protect the privacy of consumer information.
The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation PRIVACY PRINCIPLES
The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and its employees, supporters and volunteers agree to conduct their business and activities according to the following principles:
We adhere to the core principles of Data Protection and the legislation that controls the use of personal data. We are careful to recognise any valid request from an individual to suppress their name from our marketing efforts, and have sophisticated systems in place to ensure this suppression.
We also support the self-regulatory efforts of the direct marketing industry and believe such actions are a valuable addition to the legislative measures to extend the protection of the privacy of the user, whilst allowing him/her to continue receiving the benefits that sophisticated marketing techniques can provide.
We include in our contracts a commitment that any data sent to us for processing has been legally obtained and that ubsequent use of any data received from us will be in compliance with all data protection laws, as well as with applicable industry policies.
We include in our information provider contracts a commitment that the data we receive has been legally obtained for the uses to which it will be put, and we agree to comply with any restrictions that the providers place upon the data.
If we have reason to believe that a user or an information provider is not in compliance with these commitments we will terminate our relationship with them.
We understand that inaccurate data can have a negative impact upon users. If a data error is called to our attention, we will use our best efforts to determine the source of the error and notify the responsible party to enable the appropriate amendment to be made. If the error is in data that originates with us, we will promptly correct it.
We use a variety of resources to stay informed about changes in legislation and regulation, and communicate all relevant information of this nature to our employees and volunteers.
We use a multi-level security system to control access to information stored for our users. This is complemented by rigorous physical security of our facilities and limited access to certain critical areas.
We provide information to all employees and volunteers, beginning with information during Induction Training, on the importance of user privacy. We provide ongoing education to our employees and volunteers on the laws and accepted practices under which The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation operates.
All new employees and volunteers agree, as a condition of their employment with or support of us, to safeguard the personal data that is under our control.
We actively participate in the Direct Marketing Association's efforts to maintain and develop appropriate industry guidelines that safeguard the individual's right to privacy.
