Privacy Policy

Three Spires Trust (TST) considers the privacy of your data carefully and seriously. This notice describes how TST handles any personal data that it collects. Personal data is any information about you by which you can be identified or be identifiable. This could include your name or email address that is not otherwise publicly available.

This notice does not apply to the practices of companies that TST does not own or control, or to individuals that we do not employ or manage.

This privacy notice sets out how TST and its academies use and protect any information that you provide when you use a TST website.

TST is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using an TST academy website, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.

Our TST websites contain links to other websites. This privacy notice only applies to TST websites, so when you navigate to other websites you should read their own privacy notices.

How and where we collect information

We may collect information from you whenever you contact us or have any involvement with us, for example when you:

  • Visit our website
  • Attend a meeting with us and provide us with information
  • Social media or post
  • Apply for a vacancy via our website

We collect information from you when you give it to us directly: you may provide your details when you ask us for information or contact us for any other reason. Your information may be collected by an organisation we are working with, but we are still responsible for your information.

What we do with the information we gather

We require this information to process your enquiry via a contact form (if the TST website uses one), process an application for a vacancy, for record keeping and internal analysis for advertising or marketing purposes. By providing us with your details you are agreeing for us to send you information pertaining to your enquiry by either post, telephone, or email.

You have the right at any time to stop us from contacting you if you no longer wish to be contacted. Your information will be kept inline with the TST Information Retention Schedule.

Use of aggregated data

Where data can be aggregated (and anonymised), we may use this for research purposes without restriction.

For example, we may monitor customer traffic patterns, site and services usage and related information to optimise users’ usage of the site and services, and we may give aggregated statistics to a reputable third-party.

We are entitled to do this because the resulting data will not personally identify you and will therefore no longer constitute personal data for the purposes of data protection laws.


We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. To prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. We will not share your information with any third parties without your permission.

Our legal basis for processing your information

The use of your information for the purposes set out above is lawful because one or more of the following applies:

Where you have provided information to us for the purposes of requesting information or requesting that we carry out a service for you, we will proceed on the basis that you have given consent to us using the information for that purpose, based on the way that you provided the information to us. You may withdraw consent at any time by emailing us using the details below. This will not affect the lawfulness of processing of your information prior to your withdrawal of consent being received and actioned.

It is necessary for us to hold and use your information so that we can carry out our obligations under a contract entered into with you or to take steps you ask us to prior to entering into a contract.

Where the purpose of our processing is the provision of information or services to you, we may also rely on the fact that it is necessary for our legitimate interests in relation to providing the information or service requested, and given that you have made the request, would presume that there is no prejudice to you in our fulfilling your request.
