Data Protection

Privacy Statement


When  you request information from YMCA Edinburgh or sign up to any of our  services, YMCA Edinburgh obtains information about you.  This statement  explains how we look after that information and what we do with it. 
We  have a legal duty under the Data Protection Act to prevent your  information falling into the wrong hands.  We must also ensure that the  data we hold is accurate, adequate, relevant and not excessive. 
Normally  the only information we hold comes directly from you.  Whenever we  collect information from you, we will make it clear which information is  required in order to provide you with the information, or services you  need.  You do not have to provide us with any additional information  unless you choose to.  We store your information securely on our  computer system, we restrict access to those who have a need to know,  and we train our staff in handling the information securely. 
We  would also like to contact you in future to tell you about other  services we provide, and ways in which you might like to support YMCA  Edinburgh.  You have the right to ask us not to contact you in this way.   We will always aim to provide a clear method for you to opt out.  You  can also contact us directly at any time to tell us not to send you any  future marketing material.  
You have the right to a copy of all the  information we hold about you (apart from a very few things which we may  be obliged to withhold because they concern other people as well as  you).  To obtain a copy, either ask for an application form to be sent  to you, or write to the Data Protection Officer at YMCA Edinburgh.   There is no charge for a copy of your data.  We aim to reply as  promptly as we can and, in any case, within the legal maximum of 40  days.
