The Kennedy Trust for Rheumatology Research (‘The Trust’) is an independent charitable foundation which takes the protection of personal data very seriously. A copy of our Data Protection Policy can be accessed via the button below.

As part of our grant-making activities, the Trust processes personal information for its legitimate business interests. This includes data that applicants and grantees provide about their projects, organisations, staff employed and the applicants themselves. We obtain and use such information to assess applications, monitor the use of funding, conduct reviews and evaluations, and publicise our grant-making. This includes transfer to and use by such individuals and organisations as we deem appropriate, but we do not share personal data with any other organisations for marketing, market research or commercial purposes, nor do we pass details to other websites.

We may pass on personal information if we have a legal obligation to do so.

When we process personal information for our legitimate interests, we make sure to consider and balance any potential impact on the individual concerned and their rights under data protection laws.
