Who we are

We offer apprenticeships, training and support to develop the talent across our services.

Personal information we may collect

When you donate, register online, take part in a sponsored event, contact us or interact with us in any other way, YMCA Bath Group may receive personal information about you, such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, debit/credit card or direct debit details and any other general data needed to provide our service to you.

How we use your information

We will use your information in a number of ways, such as processing a donation that you have made, sending you information about YMCA, sending you communication you have subscribed to or responding to correspondence you have sent to us.

We process your data under the basis of legitimate interests and we balance those legitimate interests against your interests, rights and freedoms by only asking for a small amount of data, just enough that we can fulfil our service to you.

We will not contact you for marketing purposes unless you have given your express consent. You also have the right to advise us at any time if you no longer wish to receive any further communications from us that you might have consented to.

Disclosure of your information

We will keep your personal information confidential and will not disclose it to any third party without your consent, unless we are obliged to do so by law.

We sometimes use third parties to process your information on our behalf (for example, to process a donation). However, we require them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own business purposes.  This will always be clear when you enter your data and any third party will have their own data privacy information for you to read on their website.
