DigiGallus may collect basic identifying information such as your name, telephone number, email address and home address. If any information of a more sensitive nature such as (including but not limited to), health information or other sensitive personal data is required, explicit consent will be needed for it to be stored by DigiGallus. Any data which is not directly relevant to the purposes of the DigiGallus initiative will not be collected.

The information held will be deleted immediately if you decide not to take part. 


Why is your Data Collected and What is it used for?

DigiGallus requires the information we gather for; eligibility purposes to take part in the programme, to contact community partners, and to deliver relevant equipment and devices. It may also be used to contact former community partners about their experience with the programme in the future. All the information we collect is required to deliver the programme and will not be used for any commercial purposes whatsoever. 


How is your Data Stored?

Your data will be stored in a password protected cloud-based database which complies with GDPR regulations. This is only accessible to members working or volunteering for the DigiGallus initiative who have been trained about correct use and access to data.

Your data will not be passed on to any third party or person outside of DigiGallus without first obtaining your consent. Your data will never be passed on to a third party for commercial purposes.

You can request to view all the data that DigiGallus stores for you by contacting us at or via any mentor or volunteer. No justification needs to be given for making this request. You may also ask to have your data removed. All requests to receive or delete the personal data which is stored by DigiGallus should be made in writing and may result in community partners having to be withdrawn from the programme.


How Long will your Data be Held?

Collected data will be stored for a year, after which it will be deleted from our system unless your agreement and consent is given to keep it, should there be a valid reason for doing this, such as contacting you to follow up on the impact of taking part in the programme. Survey responses to any questionnaires you choose to complete may be anonymised and kept for up to 10 years, provided the survey contains no information that could be used to identify you.
