How we collect personal information

We collect personal information from you and from third parties (anyone acting on your behalf, for example, government and educational bodies and so on). Please see below for more information.

Where you provide us with information about other people, you must make sure that they have seen a copy of this Privacy Notice and are comfortable with you giving us their information.

We collect personal information from you through your contact with us, including by phone (we may record or monitor phone calls to make sure we are keeping to legal rules, codes of practice and internal policies, and for quality assurance purposes), by email, through our websites, by post, by filling in application or other forms, by entering competitions, through social media or face-to-face (for example, parties, visits, adoptions).

We also collect information from other people and organisations.

For all our customers, we may collect information from:

· your parent or guardian, if you are under 18 years old;

· a family member, or someone else acting on your behalf;

· sources which are available to the public, such as the edited Electoral Register or social media.

If we provide you with Nursery or Out of School services, we may collect information from:

· Government bodies (not limited to HMRC);

· Local authorities and Regulatory bodies

Categories of personal information

We process two categories of personal information about you and (where this applies) your dependants:

· standard personal information (for example, information we use to contact you, identify you or manage our relationship with you); and

· special categories of information (for example, health information, information about your race, ethnic origin, religion, parent or guardianship that allows us to provide childcare services).

For more information about these categories of information, see below.

Standard personal information includes:

· contact information, such as your name, username, address, email address and phone numbers (includes family members);

· the country you live in, your age, your date of birth (includes family members);;

· details of any contact we have had with you, such as any complaints or incidents;

· financial details such as details about your payments;

· information about how you use our products and services, such as adoptions, memberships, parties; and

· information about how you use our website, including IP addresses or other device information (please see our Cookies Policy for more details).

Special category information includes:

· national identifiers (such as your National Insurance Number or Passport Number);

· information about your employment;

· information about your child’s physical or mental health (we may get this information from application forms you have filled in, from notes and reports about their health and any treatment and care they have received or need, or it may be recorded in details of contact we have had with you such as information about complaints or incidents, and referrals from other childcare providers, quotes and records of medical services you have received);

· information about your race, ethnic origin and religion (we may get this information from your medical preferences to allow us to provide care that is tailored to your child’s needs).

What we use your personal information for

We process your personal information for the purposes set out in this Privacy Notice. We have also set out some legal reasons why we may process your personal information (these depend on what category of personal information we are processing). We normally process standard personal information if this is necessary to provide our services, or it is required, or allowed by any law that applies. Please see below for more information about this and the reasons why we may need to process special category information.

By law, we must have a lawful reason for processing your personal information. We process standard personal information about you if this is:

· necessary to provide our services − if you purchase a product or service, we will process your personal information in order to fulfil that transaction (that is, to provide you and your dependants with our products and services);

· required or allowed by law.

We process special category information about you because:

· it is necessary to comply with Ofsted or Local Authority policies for providing childcare services;

· it is necessary to establish eligibility for childcare vouchers, government schemes, etc.;

· it is necessary for a purpose designed to protect the public against dishonesty, malpractice or other seriously improper behaviour (for example, investigations in response to a safeguarding concern, a parent / guardian’s complaint or a Regulator (such as Ofsted or the Local Authorities) telling us about an issue);

· it is in the public interest, in line with any laws that apply;

· it is information that you have made public; or

· we have your permission. As is Best Practice, we will only ask you for permission to process your personal information if there is no other legal reason to process it. If we need to ask for your permission, we will make it clear that this is what we are asking for, and ask you to confirm your choice to give us that permission. If we cannot provide a product or service without your permission (for example, we cannot safely manage and run a Nursery without health information), we will make this clear when we ask for your permission. If you later withdraw your permission, we will no longer be able to provide you with a product or service that relies on having your permission.

Legitimate Interest

We process your personal information for a number of legitimate interests, including managing all aspects of our relationship with you, for marketing, to help us improve our services and products, and in order to exercise our rights. More detailed information about our legitimate interests is set out below.

Legitimate Interest is one of the legal reasons why we may process your personal information. Taking into account your interests, rights and freedoms, legitimate interests that allow us to process your personal information include:

· to manage our relationship with you, our business and third parties who provide products or services for us (for example, to register your child for childcare funding);

· to make sure that your child is cared for to our best ability (for example, we may ask for your child’s medical and dietary requirements);

· to keep our records up to date and to provide you with marketing as allowed by law;

· to develop and carry out marketing activities and to show you information that is of interest to you, based on our understanding of your preferences;

· for statistical research and analysis so that we can monitor and improve products, services, websites and apps, or develop new ones;

· to monitor how well we are meeting our childcare performance expectations;

· to enforce or apply our website terms of use, our policy terms and conditions or other contracts, or to protect our (or our customers’ or other people’s) rights, property or safety;

· to exercise our rights, to defend ourselves from claims and to keep to laws and regulations that apply to us and the third parties we work with; and

· to take part in, or be the subject of, any sale, purchase, merger or takeover of all or part of the Manor Farm Park & Woodlands East Leake Day Nursery business.

Marketing and preferences

We may use your personal information to send you marketing by post, by phone, through social media, by email and by text.

We can only use your personal information to send you marketing material if we have your permission or a legitimate interest as described above.

If you do not want to receive emails from us, you can click on the ‘unsubscribe’ link that appears in all emails we send. If you do not want to receive texts from us, you can tell us by contacting us at any time. Otherwise, you can always contact us here to update your contact preferences.
