How we hold and process your information

Wavehill are undertaking research on behalf of the Local Action Group (LAG) in Pembrokeshire (the group that oversees delivery of LEADER funding, a particular strand of European funding available to Pembrokeshire). The results will be used to consider different options for establishing a new community finance initiative in the County. Such an initiative would be designed to create a legacy fund to replace (at least in part) the LEADER funding.

Participation in the research is voluntary. You can decide to not take part before or during the interview and can choose to not answer certain questions if you prefer.

Any personal information collected as part of the research is kept confidential. Your answers to the survey will not be made public in a way that could lead to you or your organisation being identified. The information is only used for research purposes. Wavehill will produce a report based on the data but this will not identify any individuals

 

Your personal data is deleted six months post project completion which is anticipated to be January 2019.  All questionnaires will be analysed by the research team to identify themes and patterns. The results will help us identify different options to strengthen community finance in Pembrokeshire. The anonymised data is held securely and is only ever used for non-commercial research purposes. We do not share or use your information for commercial or marketing purposes.  

 

If you have any questions, please contact Eva Trier, who is the project manager for Wavehill, post@evatrier.co.uk or Cris Tomos, who is the main LAG contact for this work at Planed, crist@planed.org.uk.

  • To access your personal data held by PLANED.

  • To require PLANED to correct any mistakes in that data.

  • To (in certain circumstances) object to or restrict processing.
