Music for All (MfA) take your privacy seriously. Therefore we aim to provide you with information on how we collect, gather, and identify information during your visit to our site.
As part of any grant application process, we collect and process personal and/or business data relating to grantees. We are committed to being transparent about how we collect and use the data and to meeting data protection obligations.
What information do we collect?
MfA collects information on our users in two ways: by your voluntary submissions (for instance, if you apply for a grant, send us pictures or sign up for our newsletters) and through cookie technology.
This information may be expanded or updated as we change or develop our site. We suggest that you review this policy from time-to-time for updated information. Your continued use of our site
Please note that the MfA does not pass the Personally Identifiable Information of our users to unidentifiable Third-Parties. Personally Identifiable Information refers to information that tells us specifically who you are, such as your name, phone number, email or postal address. In many cases we need this information to provide the personalised or enhanced service that you have requested. The amount of Personally Identifiable Information that you choose to disclose to MfA is completely up to you. The only way we know something about you personally is if you provide it to us in conjunction with one of our services.
Data will be stored in a range of different places, including on your application record, systems and on other IT systems (including email).
How do we use the data?
The information the MfA collects is used for internal review; to improve the content of the site, thus making your user experience more valuable.
Children Aged 16 or Under
Due to the nature of our work, many applicants and beneficiaries of Music for All are children.
When applying for a grant, applicants are asked to confirm that they are over 16 years of age. We require parental or guardian consent for those under 16. Any data supplied by or on behalf of a child in the grant application process will only be used in connection with the application and not for any other purpose.
With consent from a parent or guardian, we may use information about a child’s musical progression for case studies and marketing purposes. We may also use images of a child for promotional purposes, with parental or guardian consent. We will always have appropriate safeguards in place for any information and photographs shared with us.
With whom does MfA share the information?
Your information may be shared internally for the purposes of the application process.
We will not share your data with third parties.
How do we protect data?
We take the security of your data seriously. We have internal policies and controls in place to ensure that your data is not lost, accidentally destroyed, misused or disclosed, and is not accessed except by our employees in the proper performance of their duties.
Third Party Data Processors
Like most organisations we rely on a number of third-party providers to support our day-to-day
operations, for example in areas such as online file storage and email delivery. We may also hire
third parties to operate, maintain or improve our website and other digital services. Some of these
service providers will by necessity have access to or be directly involved in processing or storing a
subset of the personal information you share with us. All our third-party data processors have been carefully chosen as service suppliers who also practice responsible data handling. We believe that each has in place appropriate protections to ensure the security of the data we store or process with them and have clear policies for how they treat that data. But if in doubt you should review their individual Privacy Policies.
