Use of Data 
METALLIC FUND uses the collected data for various purposes: 
  • To provide and maintain the Service. 
  • To notify you about changes to our Service. 
  • To allow you to participate in interactive features of our Service when you choose to do so.
  • To provide customer care and support.
  • To provide analysis or valuable information so that we can improve the Service.
  • To monitor the usage of the Service.
  • To detect, prevent and address technical issues.

Application and grant management
We will only ask for as much information as we need to effectively consider a programme or grant application, to manage an award if you are successful and to monitor its progress. In submitting an application you are agreeing to us processing your data for these purposes and in the ways outlined in this section.

We may collect sensitive personal data for some programme or grant schemes to enable us to monitor the diversity of our applicants and we sometimes use Typeform. This data will be anonymised once it has been matched to the programme / grant award or declination decision and the progress of the application logged. Where we fund individuals, we may also collect sensitive personal data (e.g. passport copies, birth certificates) in order to verify identity. Where this is the case, we will destroy the data as soon as identity has been confirmed.

If your application is unsuccessful, we will keep a record of your contact details for up to 10 years to enable us to maintain records of your application history should you apply again. We may hold notes on the assessment process for up to 24 months after an assessment decision.

We may use assessors, advisors, consultants, panel members or working group members to assist us with the programme or grant application and management process, including evaluation and research activities. These are often individuals, and we will ensure a data processing agreement which meets the standards of GDPR is in place.

If your application is successful we will keep your data for the lifetime of the programme or grant plus 10 years to enable us to meet any regulatory and reporting requirements, including HMRC investigations. In addition to application data, we will retain any personal data related to the administration or operation of the programme or grant. After this time, we will only retain the name of grant recipients and the amount awarded and some basic details of the grant made for archiving and research purposes.

Information regarding grants awarded is published on the Metallic Fund website and in its annual reports. This will include the title and description of the grant, name of the recipient, date of the award, its duration and the amount awarded. We will not publish address details of individuals who are awarded grants except where these are also the registered addresses of organisations we fund. If you use a personal address for an organisation and do not wish us to publish this information you must inform us as the point of grant award. We may also include this information on programmes or grants awarded in presentations about the Foundation’s work.

We may invite you to participate in informal networks with other grantees, consultants, staff and those working in your field.

There may be times we share information with a third-party organisation such as a charity or other funder who may contact us for a reference. Most information will be organisational and not personal, but at times personal data (for example the names of senior staff) may be included. This is a legitimate interest as it will improve funding to the sectors we fund.

If you receive a grant from us we may share information on this with other third parties organisations for the purposes of providing further support and assistance to you.

Transfer Of Data
Your information, including Personal Data, may be transferred to — and maintained on — computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ than those from your jurisdiction. If you are located outside United Kingdom and choose to provide information to us, please note that we transfer the data, including Personal Data, to United Kingdom and process it there.

Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer. Metallic Fund will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy and no transfer of your Personal Data will take place to an organisation or a country unless there are adequate controls in place including the security of your data and other personal information.

Service Providers
We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service ("Service Providers"), to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Service-related services or to assist us in analysing how our Service is used.
