Grant applicants:

Personal information provided to us directly via the TCCT website, email or post for the purpose of submitting a grant application will be used as appropriate to complete a thorough assessment of your proposal. By providing us with your information, including personal data, you will be automatically providing your explicit consent to the collection and retention of any information for our database.

Information provided by grantees for the purpose of reporting or case studies will not be shared outside our organisation without your explicit and informed consent.

Grant enquiries:

If you have not applied to us before and you contact us via our website email, post or telephone to make an enquiry, the information that you provide will be held as necessary for our legitimate interests in dealing with your enquiry and analysis of enquiries received.

Job applicants:

TCCT has no employees and has no requirements for either employees or volunteers. However, personal data submitted for the purpose of applying for an employment role at the Charity may be retained on file for up to 6 months before securely destroying the data.

Website users:

Our Website uses cookies – please see our Cookies policy (a copy of which can be accessed here) for further details. This data will be used to enable your use of the services available on the website and improve your browsing experience.


Any other personal information knowingly provided to us, including but not limited to the purpose of contracting with us, will only be used for the purpose for which it was given. The data will not be kept for longer than necessary and will be destroyed securely. Your personal information will not be shared with third parties unless it is required by law, for example, for the detection or prevention of crime.


This information is processed according to Article 6 of the General Data Protection Regulation for the following reasons:

  • as necessary for the performance of tasks carried out in the public interest, in this case the disbursement of funds to a variety of charitable organisations who meet TCCT’s charitable objects;

  • as necessary in the pursuit of the legitimate interests of the Charity, in this case, to acquire the information necessary to process grant applications;

  • for compliance with legal obligations, in this case to provide full and accurate information to the Charity Commission and Companies House concerning the Trustees.


The Charity reserves the right to hold data related to grant applications for archive purposes, to help inform future grant making policy/processes, and in order to facilitate a high standard of due diligence which will enable the charity to continue to fulfil its charitable objects. The Charity reserves the right to hold data related to unsolicited job applications for no longer than 6 months, before all data is securely destroyed.


We will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.

The Charity will store all the personal data you provide on its secure cloud-based services including Dropbox and Office 365. This information is protected using both password management tools, data encryption and two-factor authentication where possible.


We may disclose information about you to any of our Trustees, agents, suppliers or subcontractors insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes as set out in this privacy statement. We currently reserve the right to pass information provided to us by applicants to other Trusts and Foundations.

In addition, we may disclose your personal information:

  • to the extent that we are required to do so by law;

  • in connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings;

  • in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the

    purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk); and

  • to any person who we reasonably believe may apply to a court or other competent authority for disclosure

    of that personal information where, in our reasonable opinion, such court or authority would be reasonably likely to order disclosure of that personal information.

    Except as provided in this privacy statement, we will not provide your information to third parties.


Information that TCCT collects may be stored and processed in and transferred between any of the countries in the EU in accordance with this privacy statement.


You may instruct us to provide you with any personal information we hold about you. Provision of such information will be subject to the supply of appropriate evidence of your identity.

In some circumstances you may also have the right to:

  • request that we erase any personal data held about you;

  • restrict our processing of your personal data (for example to ask to suspend the processing of personal

    information to establish its accuracy or the reasons for processing it);

  • data portability (i.e. to request the transfer of personal data to a third party); and

  • object to our processing of your personal data.

    Requests in respect of the above should be made in writing to The Canbrick Charitable Trust, Globe House, Maidstone, Kent ME14 3EN. Please contact us at the same address if you have any reason to believe that information we hold about you is inaccurate. We will aim to respond to your request within one month from the date of receiving the request. Please note that we may, where legally permitted, reject any such request or limit the scope of our response (for example if, in the circumstances, the right does not apply to you).

    You will not generally have to pay a fee to exercise any of your rights described above. However, we may charge a reasonable fee if you make a request to see a copy of your personal information which is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in such circumstances. We may also charge a reasonable fee if you request further copies of the data following a request. The fee will be based on the administrative costs of providing further copies.

    If you have concerns about how we use your data, you have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office.
