 Disclosing and sharing information

Any information you provide will only be used for the reasons specified. We will only disclose your information to other parties in the following limited circumstance

- Where we are legally obliged to do so eg law and regulatory authorities

- Where there is a duty to disclose in the public interest

- Where disclosure is necessary to protect our interest eg to prevent or detect crime and fraud

- Where you give us permission to do so eg on an application form

 The lawful bases for processing are set out in Article 6 of the GDPR

Consent: the individual has given clear consent for the school/Trust to process their personal data for a specific purpose.

Contract: the processing is necessary for a contract you have with the individual, or because they have asked you to take specific steps before entering into a contract.

Legal obligation: the processing is necessary to comply with the law (not including contractual obligations).

Vital interests: the processing is necessary to protect someone’s life.

Public task: the processing is necessary to perform a task in the public interest or for your official functions, and the task or function has a clear basis in law.

Legitimate interests: the processing is necessary for your legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party unless there is a good reason to protect the individual’s personal data which overrides those legitimate interests. (This cannot apply if you are a public authority processing data to perform your official tasks.)

At least one of these basis will apply each time we use or process personal data.
