Reading Welfare Rights is committed to the privacy and confidentiality of the information provided to us by our clients.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires that we obtain freely-given consent to store your personal data. By contacting us, you agree for us to store and process your personal data: including your name, contact details, and any other information relevant to your case. There will therefore be some personal information that we will need to collect in order to offer you the best possible support.
We are obliged to ensure that the information provided to us is only used for the purpose for which it was supplied and to ensure that the data is kept securely. In some, exceptional, circumstances your data can be shared without your consent, but only when absolutely necessary – for example, where the information may prevent a crime, in order to safeguard the welfare of a vulnerable adult or young person. Unless you indicate otherwise, we will treat your contact as a clear affirmative action under Article 4 (II) of the GDPR, signifying your agreement to store and process your data.
