Resource Productions is registered as Youth Engagement Slough’s data controller with the Information Commissioner’s Office for the United Kingdom and are collectively referred to as YES Consortium in this document. This policy is written in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 2018 and with the Data Protection Act 1998.
- How your data is collected
In most circumstances, YES Consortium will only ask for your name and contact details (plus payment details if you are registering for a course). Sometimes, we may ask for additional information where it may either help us in our campaigns or help us keep our communications relevant to you.
YES Consortium will also collect information such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address for monitoring and improving the effectiveness of our website services as well its security.
We will only collect sensitive personal data where absolutely necessary and with your explicit consent. All data collected by YES Consortium will be retained only for an appropriate length of time, defined by our legal requirements and operational needs, and will be securely archived or deleted after this time.
Cookies are small files that are downloaded onto your computer (or your mobile phone) from websites that you visit. Cookies contain information that allows websites to recognise that you have used the site before.
All browsers allow you to control which cookies you accept and which you delete. You will usually find these settings under the ‘Preferences’ or ‘Tools’ menu of your browser. For more information about cookies, please see www.allaboutcookies.org.
- How your data is kept secure
YES Consortium uses industry-standard tools, such as firewalls AVG, Norton & Kaspersky, to safeguard the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information. We make every effort to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control.
In addition, we always use a secure connection when collecting personal financial information from you and conform to PCI standards. All forms which request credit card or bank details use Eventbrite. Most web browsers (e.g. Microsoft Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome, etc.) support Eventbrite. The link between your web browser and the server is secure if your web browser displays a small padlock or key symbol somewhere in the frame, or the address bar shows a web address beginning https:// (rather than http://)
We endeavour to keep all supporter data inside the European Economic Area (EEA), and ensure that any time data is transferred outside the EEA exactly the same provisions on data security and processing are applied. YES Consortium will never sell your data to any other organisation. YES Consortium also never shares or swaps your data with another organisation unless we have made it obvious up front (e.g. for the purpose of reporting to our funders). In all these cases these third parties only have access to the data they need to handle the process and do not have permission to use it for any other purposes. We may also share anonymised (or ‘hashed’) versions of your data with partners for reporting purposes only.
Within YES Consortium, only those authorised to process your data can access your data. We work hard to ensure our staff can only see the data they need to perform their tasks. All our staff are trained to understand data protection and what they need to do to keep your data secure.

All applicable laws are followed with respect to data collection from children. Where we have date of birth information, we will only share data collected from children with Slough Borough Council through Youth Engagement Slough (YES).
