How we collect information

Personal information is collected using an online accessible volunteering application.

After an initial face to face meeting, further personal information is collected by the viewing and verification of personal identification documents. Supplementary information is also collected from applicant’s proposed referees.

Categories of information collected

Name, any previous surname/s, residential address, email address, telephone numbers, driving licence number where valid, national insurance number, next of kin name and contact number, referee names and contact emails, disclosure of any criminal records, cautions or notices.

How we use the information provided

We record the name, residential address, email address, contact telephone numbers and next of kin contact details in our password protected and computer generated RBWM system stored volunteers’ contact list file. We access it when we need to contact volunteers for volunteering slots and other Library and Museum business that the volunteer chooses to get involved with. We email reference requests to the provided referees. When completed references
are returned/emailed, they are viewed and kept for reference for six months. After six months they are deleted from the system.

We view and verify the identification documents for the Disclosure and Barring Service application which is done online and carried out with the consent of the volunteer. To facilitate the administration of this part of the process, copies are taken with the consent of the individual. The individual is also informed that any copies will be disposed in the borough confidential waste system once this administrative part is completed.

Who has access to the information about you

Access is necessary to ensure duty of care and volunteering slot allocations and mutual agreement.

Who we may share your information with

We do not share personal information collected with anyone else unless required to do so by law.

How long we store your information

As long as an individual continues to volunteer with the Service. When the individual ceases volunteering with the Service, the information is deleted with immediate effect.
