Data Protection Policy

Gwealan Tops Adventure Playground


Your personal data – what is it? 

Personal data relates to a living individual who can be identified from that data. Identification can be by the information alone or in conjunction with any other information in Gwealan Tops possession or likely to come into such possession. The processing of personal data is governed by [the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (the “GDPR”)].  More information about the GDPR can be found at the Information Commissioner’s Office at

How do we process your personal data? 

Gwealan Tops complies with its obligations under the GDPR by keeping personal data up to date; by storing and destroying it securely; by not collecting or retaining excessive amounts of data; by protecting personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access and disclosure and by ensuring that appropriate technical measures are in place to protect personal data

We use your personal data for the following purposes:

  • To administer membership records;
  • To maintain registration records including emergency contact details, allergies and other relevant health information;
  • To enable us to provide a community service for the benefit of local children and families;
  • To manage employees and volunteers;
  • To fundraise and promote the interests of the charity;
  • To maintain our own accounts and records;
  • For the prevention of crime and for the wellbeing of children and vulnerable adults in matters relating to Safeguarding;
  • To inform individuals of news, events, activities or services running at Gwealan Tops.

The data that we will most likely seek to process is as follows:

  • personal information (such as name, contact number, parental details and address);
  • characteristics (such as ethnicity, family make up);
  • email address for providing news and updates regarding Gwealan Tops.

What is the legal basis for processing your personal data?

Article 6 processing:

  • Consent of the data subject;
  • Processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with the data subject or to take steps to enter into a contract (in matters regarding employees and self-employed contractors);
  • Processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation;
  • Processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of a data subject or another person (particularly in regard to the safety of children);

It is not expected that Gwealan Tops will be processing special category data which has not been completely anonymised. However, if we are required to do so for a particular reason, for example, grant monitoring, then this will be with the additional demands of Article 9 processing and the legal basis would be:

  • Explicit consent of the data subject;
  • Processing is carried out by a not-for-profit body with a political, philosophical, religious or trade union aim provided: –
    • the processing relates only to members or former members (or those who have regular contact with it in connection with those purposes); and
    • there is no disclosure to a third party without consent;
  • Processing is necessary for archiving purposes in the public interest, or scientific and historical research purposes or statistical purposes.

Please note: where the personal data are collected direct from the data subject, the data subject must be informed whether he or she is obliged to provide the personal data and the consequences, if he/she does not provide the data.

Collecting this information

Whilst some information you provide to us is mandatory (i.e. registration details), some of it is provided to us on a voluntary basis. In order to comply with the data protection legislation, we will inform you whether you are required to provide certain information to us or if you have a choice in this.

Sharing your personal data

Your personal data will be treated as strictly confidential and will be shared with Gwealan Tops employees as necessary for the safe and effective running of the Adventure Playground. We will only share your data with third parties outside of the organisation with your consent.

How long do we keep your personal data?

We keep your personal data for no longer than reasonably necessary for a period of 3 years following your relationship with Gwealan Tops ceasing to be active in order to maintain the records of the Adventure Playground for purposes including reporting to funders; safeguarding; accounting; complaints and legal matters; impact assessment and relationship management.
