What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We collect data on two types of people – Volunteers and Isolators for a number of projects including but not limited to flooding.
We collect volunteers so we can pair them with isolators needing help. This data is stored on the website and accessible to the admin team. In addition the area co-ordinator can see the data for volunteers helping isolators in their area. The data is kept for 3 months after the volunteer says they no longer want to help.

We collect details on people registering for meals so that we can assess how many meals we need to source and who to deliver them to. This data is not stored on the website.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
