What personal data do we collect?
As a result of your visiting this website, we may collect or otherwise process your personal data in the following ways:
What is our basis for processing your personal data?
Any emails you send will be assessed to determine how best to respond. We provide an email address for UJA members to send calls for evidence inviting research contributions from other members, and for UJA members who require resource to send proposals for projects and cases that align with the UJA's purpose. Emails may also be sent to us from people who are generally interested in finding out more information. If you contact us for any of these purposes, we will retain your details so that we can keep in contact with you, and provide you with requested information, any updated information as appropriate and general updates. Our legal basis for doing so is that it is in our legitimate interests (and in the legitimate interests of our other affiliates named on the home page and, indeed, the compelling legitimate interests of the Ukrainians whom we wish to support). We do anticipate that in certain circumstances we may receive emails with more specific requests for support or advice, or which might provide us with information. In those circumstances, we will contact the senders directly to provide further information about how their personal data will be processed.
Who might access or receive your personal data?
If you email us through the email address provided on this website, it will be received and initially assessed by either our processor, Toby Burnham Communications Limited or by Mishcon de Reya LLP. Subsequently, we will generally only pass your details to a very limited number of our employees who are working on providing the website, and associated services, on a pro bono basis. In some cases we may also pass your details to one or more of the affiliates named on the home page.
We would only ever provide your details to others if there were a legal necessity to do so, and we do not anticipate that such circumstances would arise (and if they did, we would take all reasonable steps to inform you).
We do not intend to transfer your personal data outside of the UK, unless you are already outside of the UK. If you are not in a country which is deemed by the UK to have an adequate level of protection, and especially if you are in Ukraine, we note that such transfers may be made for important reasons of public interest, and that recital 112 of the UK GDPR recognises that complying with international humanitarian law applicable in armed conflicts (such as the Additional Protocols of 1977 to the Geneva Conventions, relating to the protection of victims of armed conflicts) could be considered to be an example of when an important reason of public interest applies.
Your personal data collected as a result of your sending an email to the address listed on this website will be stored for 12 months, after which it will be deleted, unless there are subsequent compelling reasons to retain it.
You have the (qualified) rights to:
You also have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner's Office about the processing your personal data.
