Information we may collect from you

We may collect and process the following data about you:

We anticipate that you will not be providing us with sensitive personal data (such as health information by which an individual can be identified) by filling in forms on our Site, but in the event that you do decide to provide us with sensitive personal data on behalf of, or for the benefit of, someone else, you warrant to us that you have received appropriate consent of that person and you provide that sensitive personal data at your own risk. If you are submitting any personal data about any person under the age of thirteen, you warrant to us that you have obtained parental consent regarding the discourse of this information.

IP addresses and cookies

We may collect information about your computer, including, where available, your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration. This is statistical data about our users' browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.

The Site uses cookies. For detailed information on the cookies we use and the purposes for which we use them see our Cookie Policy

Where we store your personal data

The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for one of our suppliers. Such staff may be engaged in, among other things, the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the Site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

Uses made of the information

We use personal data held about you to process your application, make a decision whether to grant funding and contacting you or your independent referee in response to your application for funding or to provide any other services that you request of us.

Our third party suppliers may use your data in order to improve the services that they offer and may transfer your data to their third party suppliers for the purposes of facilitating the services that they supply to you. E.g. we use JotForm software on the Site to enable you to fill in forms. In using this software, you agree to the terms of the JotForm privacy policy.
