THE KIND OF INFORMATION WE HOLD ABOUT YOU
Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data).
There are “special categories” of more sensitive personal data which require a higher level of protection such as health information, or information about racial or ethnic origin which is afforded a higher level of privacy protection.
WHAT SPECIAL CATEGORIES OF DATA ARE COLLECTED?
We will only process the following “special categories” of more sensitive personal information where they are collected through the Questionnaires.
● Information about your child’s health and wellbeing.
● Name and age, and address if provided.
HOW IS YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED?
Aire Logic will gather information in the following way;
● Directly (where the information is provided by you or your child /young person) through the health needs assessment/Questionnaire.
HOW WE WILL USE INFORMATION ABOUT YOU
We will only use your personal information when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal information in the following circumstances:
1. Where we need to comply with a legal obligation.
2. Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.
We may also use personal information in the following situations, which are likely to be rare:
1. Where we need to protect your interests (or someone else’s interests).
2. Where it is needed in the public interest (or for official purposes).
HOW WE USE PARTICULARLY SENSITIVE PERSONAL INFORMATION
“Special categories” of particularly sensitive personal information require higher levels of protection. We need to have further justification for collection and storage for this type of personal information. We process special categories of personal information in line with our contract with the healthcare provider organisation and in the following circumstances:
1. Where we need to carry out our legal obligations and in line with our Policy.
2. Where it is needed in the public interest.
Aire Logic do not use any identifiable personal data, nor do we share this with any parties outside of our contract with your local Health Provider Organisation. We will ensure that any agreed third parties respect the security of your data and treat it in accordance with the law.
Where permitted by law, we may transfer your personal information outside the EU. If we do, you can expect the same degree of protection in respect of your personal information.
Why might you share my personal information with third parties?
We will share your personal information with third parties where required by law, or where we have another legitimate interest in doing so.
“Third parties” includes third-party service providers (including contractors and designated agents) and other entities within our group. The following third-party service providers process personal information about your child or young person for the following purposes:

RIGHTS OF ACCESS, CORRECTION, ERASURE, AND RESTRICTION
Your duty to inform the Healthcare Provider Organisation of changes
Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:
Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information that is held about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information held about you corrected.
Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask the Healthcare Organisation to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground.
Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
Request the transfer of your personal information in a portable format to another party. This allows you to take your information from our IT environment to another organisation’s IT environment. The format will be chosen based on the information provided, this is likely to be a generic file format such as CSV.
If you want to review, verify, correct or request erasure of your personal information, object to the processing of your personal data, or request that we transfer a copy of your personal information to another party, please contact your local School Health team who sent you the request or information initially.
No fee usually required
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.
What we may need from you
For your Healthcare Provider Organisation (or in some circumstances Aire Logic) to carry out your request they may need to request specific information from you to help confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.
RIGHT TO WITHDRAW CONSENT
In the limited circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. To withdraw your consent, please contact the Healthcare Provider Organisation. Once they have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law.
Guidance and Training
Aire Logic Directors, employees and associates all have responsibility to ensure compliance with Information Governance and GDPR and to ensure that they comply with them in day to day business. They all undertake IG training on an annual basis.
Change of purpose
Data Protection and Brexit
Like all areas of law derived in part from the European Union, data protection legislation will be subject to changes following the UK’s departure from the EU.
During the transition period (i.e. 1 February – 31 December 2020, unless extended), there will be no changes at all. The GDPR (as supplemented by the DPA 2018 and various other laws) will continue to apply in full while long-term data protection arrangements are negotiated.
After the transition period (i.e. from 1 January 2021, unless the transition period is extended), the UK Government has made it clear that all the substantive provisions of the GDPR (as supplemented by the DPA 2018 and various other laws) about principles, rights and accountability obligations will continue to apply in the UK regardless of the outcome of the negotiations.
However, if the negotiations do not lead to a long-term arrangement that covers data protection matters, it is possible that a ‘no deal’ scenario will re-emerge. If this scenario looks to become a reality this policy will be updated to reflect this.
