Privacy Policy

Keeping your information safe and private is incredibly important to us at Canvas.  Canvas is nothing without the wonderful people who make up the community, so your comfort and confidence are things we value very highly.  We are happy to share with you the ways that we are doing that with your personal data.

References to “we”, “us”, or “our” in this Privacy Policy are references to Canvas: Globalscope England, a registered Charitable Incorporated Organisation 1138522


Data We Collect

We collect your personal information when you opt to receive information about what’s on at Canvas, get involved in the community, or participate in certain events.  This information may include your name, email address, physical address, phone number, Facebook name, and Instagram handle.


Because we are committed to safeguarding everyone who is a part of Canvas, we also act in accordance with laws and best practices in regards to first aid and caring for mental health related situations.  That means that when necessary, additional information may be recorded in a written document detailing an incident and the response.  First aid records are kept in a designated book in a locked cabinet in the Canvas office and mental health first aid documents are kept in a locked box accessible only to the designated safeguarder and the Team Leader.


How We Use The Information

Your personal information will be used to contact you in the ways that you have consented to be contacted such as weekly emails or with information regarding a specific event.  We may also use contact details to invite you to additional events or activities with the Canvas community as a whole, in smaller groups, or as individuals from the Canvas team.

We will never distribute your information to any other party or organisation without your knowledge or consent.  Canvas sends updates and other mailings to financial supporters of the charity, but your personal data will not be included without your permission.

We keep a database or list of students and/or individuals associated with our community in order to keep track of who is actively involved at Canvas. This is the equivalent of a "list of members" under our charitable status.
