INTO Walking & Cycling Newcastle-under-Lyme is a pilot project funded by the Department for Transport, delivered by Staffordshire County Council. As part of the project there will be extensive research throughout the 3 years of funding.
The categories of information we will collect, and process include:
- Personal identifiers and contacts
- Email and Telephone contact details
- Images & recordings – further consent will be gathered to ensure no images are published where we do not have your written consent.
Protecting your data
It is important to note that personal data will be removed from any combined datasets before they form any wider evaluation. This means it will be impossible for anyone to identify you from any published reports because information will be anonymised.
Staffordshire County Council are responsible for collecting and protecting this data complying with data protection laws. Data will be held for the length of the project plus 4 years. The data has been collected for the following reasons:
- To support individual progress
- To monitor and evaluate activities
- To provide feedback as part of funding guidelines
- To assess the quality of our services
Anonymised data will be shared with partner organisations and central government to monitor and evaluate the project.
Group activities - all participants taking part in walking and/or cycling activities consent to take part and provide basic information as per the booking form. Prior to any physical activity session health, ability information will be requested by the INTO Training Team staff.
For participants receiving one to one coaching sessions further health survey data pre, during and post your sessions with our team will be requested. Data is required to ensure participant safety, appropriate level of activity and to monitor benefits for the individual.
Where adults taking part require support from a care giver or guardian permission from them will be required.
You can withdraw your consent for us to use your information or images at any time.
