Vibe needs to collect and use certain types of information about the individuals who come into contact with us in order to carry out our work.  This personal information must be collected and dealt with appropriately and there are processes to ensure this under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) May 2018.

We collect information from you in the following ways:

  • From consent forms
  • From evaluation processes
  • From equality & diversity monitoring processes
  • From video, audio and photographs
  • When you contact us via our website or social media

How will we use the information we collect from you?

Vibe’s main work area is working with young people - running activities, meetings and events for young people.  We are legally obliged to obtain consent for each young person who takes part, particularly if under 18.  

For safeguarding purposes and to be able to contact your parent/guardian/carer/significant adult in the event of an emergency, medical or otherwise. 

To provide welcoming, safe spaces for activities and to provide a positive learning experience.

Access to your information and correction:

You have the right to request a copy of the information that we hold about you.  If you would like a copy please email [email protected] with the heading ‘GDPR Information Request’. We want to make sure that your personal information is accurate and up to date.  You may ask us to correct or remove information you think is inaccurate. You have the right to withdraw consent at any time by emailing [email protected] with the heading ‘GDPR – I want to opt out’

This may result in you/your child being unable to continue with a project if consent is a legal requirement.

How long will we keep your information?

Consent is valid for 12 months from the date the form is signed.   Following this date, we will store the data securely electronically for a maximum of 3 years, unless we are required by law to keep it any longer.

Will we share your information with anyone?

We are not in the business of selling your data. We will only share relevant personal information with third parties if funding contracts require us to do so. In these instances, we will ensure that your information is not shared further by implementing agreements with those third parties.  Third parties we are likely to share your information with include:
