The following table explains the types of data we collect and the legal basis, under current data protection legislation, on which this data is processed.

|Registering to work as a mentor for one or more of our events||Name, email, areas of expertise, availability, PVG Disclosure status and documentation||Consent — you have given your active consent.|
|Registering to attend one of our events (e.g., weekly evening session, Summer Hack)||Name, email, emergency contact details; if necessary, allergy and medical conditions||Consent — you have given your active consent.|

How we use your data
We will only use your data in a manner that is appropriate considering the basis on which that data was collected, as set out in the table at the top of this policy.
For example, we may use your personal information to:
- reply to enquiries you send to us;
- ensure that we are able to meet your needs as an attendee in one of our events;
- include you as a mentor in regular or one-off events;
- where you have specifically agreed to this, send you communications by email relating to our work which we think may be of interest to you.
We do not carry out any automated processing of your personal data except to collect aggregated statistics about our events for the purposes of reporting to sponsors and other interested bodies.
When we share your data
We will not pass your data to third parties except where we are required to do so by law.
In very limited circumstances, we may work with partner organisations (e.g., CodeBase, Product Forge) to make photographic or video recordings of Prewired events. We will only do this when the goal is to benefit Prewired’s charitable aims, for example by publicising Prewired activities. We will ask for your active consent in such cases. If you refuse to give consent, we will take all steps possible to ensure that you are not included in any photographs or videos. You will also be able withdraw consent retroactively.
In addition, we will only store data outside of the EU where appropriate safeguards are in place as defined by Article 46 of the General Data Protection Regulation.
How long we keep your data
We take the principles of data minimisation and removal seriously and have internal policies in place to ensure that we only ever ask for the minimum amount of data for the associated purpose and delete that data promptly once it is no longer required. Where attendee data is collected on the basis of consent, we will seek renewal of consent at least every year.
Rights you have over your data
You have a range of rights over your data, which include the following:
- Where data processing is based on consent, you are able to remove your consent at any time. You can do this by contacting dpo [AT] prewired.org.
- You have the right to ask for rectification and/or deletion of your information.
- You have the right of access to your information.
- You have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner if you feel your rights have been infringed.
A full summary of your legal rights over your data can be found on the Information Commissioner’s website here: https://ico.org.uk/
If you would like to access the rights listed above, or any other legal rights you have over your data under current legislation, please get in touch with us.
Please note that relying on some of these rights, such as the right to deleting your data, will make it impossible for us to continue to deliver some services to you. However, where possible we will always try to allow the maximum access to your rights while continuing to deliver as many services to you as possible.
