Data Retention

The personal data collected is stored in DYW North East’s CRM system and other appropriate data management systems, both paper based and electronic.

  • securely delete information that is no longer needed for that purpose or those purposes
  • update, archive or securely delete information if it goes out of date.

You have a right to be forgotten, and whilst we’d be sorry to see you go, please let us know by emailing info@dyw.org.uk should you wish to have your details deleted.
