Security of your Information

The Ship Yard Trust is committed to ensure that your information is secure.  In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure we have put into place physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure information we collect from you. 


  • Physical Controls

All confidential hard copy filing is locked in storage cabinets with limited access. 


  • Electronic Controls

All accounts are password protected accounts.  No information containing personally identifiable information is saved to the hard drives of desktop PCs.  Authorised Ship Yard Trust users are able to access their accounts remotely therefore removing the need for information to be saved to removable media or local hard drives.  Authorisation to write to removable media is restricted.  It is the Ship Yard Trust policy that personal information must not be copied to removable media.  Any breaches to this policy would lead to severe disciplinary action.


  • Managerial Controls

Ship Yard Trust volunteers are made aware of the General Data Protection Regulations 2016 and policies and procedures of the organisation at induction.  



When users enter The Ship Yard Trust website their computers will automatically be issued with ‘cookies’.  Cookies are text files which identify users’ computers to the server.  The website then creates “session” cookies to store some of the preferences of users moving around the website, e.g. retaining a text-only preference.  Cookies in themselves do not identify individual users but identify only the computer used and they are deleted on departure from the website. Many websites do this to track traffic flows, whenever users visit those websites.


The website uses third-party cookies to measure use of the website including number of visitors, how frequently pages are viewed, and the city and country of origin of users.  This helps to determine what is popular and can influence future content and development. The information collected will include IP address, pages visited, browser type and operating system.  

Users have the opportunity to set their web browsers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time; the last of these means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user.



Connections to the website are not encrypted.  Information about members or partners and how to contact them published on our website is published with permission.


Notice of Breach of Security

If a security breach causes an unauthorised intrusion to our system that materially affects the information we hold about you, we will notify you as soon as possible and later report what action we have taken in response.


Changes to our Privacy Policy

If changes are made to our privacy policy, we will post the updated privacy statement to the website and such other places we deem appropriate.
