The MY Trust is committed to protecting your privacy when you use our services. Your school or college should have made you aware of our organisational Privacy Notice a copy can be found on our website www.themytrust.org/privacy-policy, but these points are specific to young people that are supported by Me2.

The lawful basis for processing this information under GDPR has been identified as: 6 (1) (a) You the data subject has given consent to the processing of your data for this purpose.

The person that referred you or yourself should have already given us the following information about you that we have stored:

  • Name
  • Date of Birth
  • Gender
  • If you have any additional needs
  • Your current and predicted grades, and
  • Where you go to school or college.

During a meeting with an adviser you may give the following information that we will store:

  • Phone Number
  • Any assessments you may do
  • Details of conversations you may have with our staff
  • Action Plans
  • Other agencies and support you may be receiving.

We ask for this information to help us to give you the best support as possible, to keep you safe and to ensure you are matched with the perfect mentor or mentee. We store this information about you for one academic year after the year the information was collected. On 1st September the following year we will anonymise your information so we cannot tell it is about you but we can still use it to measure the work we have done. If you give us a phone number, this would only be used once in the year after your meeting(s) to see if you have progressed how you wished and if the support we gave was useful. This means we can learn and improve. The gender information we receive will be used anonymously to analyse local market needs for our own research. Any information you give us where we think you or others are at risk of harm, the law says we must store this for 6 years.

This information may be collected electronically or on paper but will be input onto our MY Trust database within a week of the end of programme. All paper and electronic documents will then be destroyed, so everything is kept securely in one place.

We will share your information with the youth club you have been matched with, this will be information for them to ensure you are safe and have the correct support. We share this information securely and we have an agreement with the youth club to make sure your information is safe. If you are a mentee we will talk to your mentor about your likes and dislikes and anything they need to know to help you.

If you have any questions or you change your mind about the information we hold about you please tell your adviser, email [email protected] or send a Facebook message to Helen MYT Data.
