Data collection and use

July 2015

The personal data processed on is limited to information about usage of our website (traffic data, including data derived from “cookies”) and the name and email addresses of people who sign-up to receive our newsletter. This data is used:

  • to help us understand how people use in order to improve our communication
  • to send newsletters to our subscribers

We also process the data that you may input into such as search queries or feedback on the website but this is not linked to any personal information and cannot therefore be used by Local Trust to identify users of the website.

The personal data processed on includes the names, addresses phone numbers and email addresses of registered users of the platform, as well as any personal information included in requests for funding, spend reports and partnership and plan reviews, including the contact details of organisational representatives and their biographical profiles. This data is used:

  • to implement the Big Local programme
  • to manage relationships with applicants and those receiving Big Local funding
  • to meet our legal and charitable obligations

Local Trust also uses social media platforms to link to and disseminate information about and the Big Local programme. Local Trust social media accounts and pages are managed by Local Trust staff members. Local Trust does not import or export any information on its followers or subscribers from or to these platforms. Local Trust may however communicate through direct messaging over social media.
