We will also, from time to time, use third party data processors.
We are committed to upholding the principles of the GDPR when processing personal data. We have a security and confidentiality policy in place that all staff adhere to. Employers For Childcare is also registered as a Data Processor with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).

These third parties have access to your personal information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.

These third parties have access to personal information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose. These third parties may be located outside of the EEA in which case we will only use third parties that have been certified to the obligations and standards equivalent to those in the EEA, which means they lawfully transfer and protect the personal data of EU/EEA residents.

In the event that a dispute arises with regards to the international transfer of data, you agree that the courts of Northern Ireland shall have exclusive jurisdiction over the matter.

When you visit the centre
We offer various services to guests. We must hold certain details of guests in order to provide these services to them. However, we only use these details to provide the service the person has requested and for other closely related purposes unless we have clear consent.
Guests to High Rise
Information will be required from guests and prospective guests to make and secure bookings and to participate in activities. This may include names, contact details, payment details and some data relating to children (eg name and age). Personal data requested will be kept to a minimum and only that information which is required as an essential component of providing the service, and to keep guests updated, will be requested.
Guests may be asked if they consent to be contacted with broader information about High Rise or the work of Employers For Childcare. Consent once given can be withdrawn at any time.
CCTV cameras are used to record all entrance and exit points, public areas within the centre and the car park. These are for security purposes allowing for the premises to be monitored when no staff are present, for acting as a deterrent to any potential criminal activity and to review in the case of an incident on site. Recordings are stored securely and deleted automatically after 28 days. Except for legitimate purposes such as to law enforcement bodies, images will not be provided to third parties.
Images are monitored by High Rise’s authorised personnel during working hours only and can be accessed remotely at other times if required. Live feeds from CCTV cameras are monitored only where this is reasonably necessary, for example to protect health and safety. Live feeds from cameras and recorded images are only viewed by approved members of its staff whose role requires them to have access to such data and can only be accessed by signing in. This may include High Rise staff involved in investigating issues or accidents.
No surveillance cameras are placed in areas where there is an expectation of privacy (for example, in the toilets). High Rise does not carry out covert monitoring or surveillance (that is, where you are unaware that the monitoring or surveillance is taking place) unless, in highly exceptional circumstances, there are reasonable grounds to suspect that criminal activity or extremely serious malpractice is taking place and, after suitable consideration, High Rise reasonably believes there is no less intrusive way to tackle the issue.
Photographs and videos
To record attendance and participation in Clip ‘n Climb safety briefings, we will take and retain a photograph. This will be stored securely, in line with our data retention policy, and used only for the purposes of confirming attendance at the safety briefing.
We may also take photographs and record videos for the purposes of promoting the activities on offer within our centre. In using the centre, you consent to this, but where you have any concern about this you can speak to a centre manager.
In group photographs and videos, we will endeavour to keep personal identification to a minimum. Should we request an individual photograph or video, you will be asked to give your permission for images to be captured. You can refuse consent for this.

Any email sent to us, including any attachments, may be monitored and used by us for reasons of security and for monitoring compliance with office policy.
