Who do we collect data from?

Clients (data controllers) TWP have consulted legal and security professionals to make sure that all our processes are fully compliant. We have taken careful consideration for those clients who invite their employees to take part in our online resilience programmes, to ensure that their personal data is kept safe.
Client’s employees (data subjects) If your employer invites you to take part in one of our online resilience programmes, this may require you to provide us with personal data, both at the point of registration and through interactions on our website. We take great care to protect your data against loss, exposure, and unauthorised access. We are transparent about what data you share with us, where it is stored, and how it is used.

Data Controllers

For the purpose of the Data Protection Legislation; Where a company or organisation, using our services or products (the “client”) has instructed us to support or assess the wellbeing and resilience of their employees (the “responders”), the Client is the data controller and TWP is the data processor.

What personal data do we collect?

Personal data is defined in the UK GDPR as,

“‘personal data’ means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person”.

It does not include anonymous data, i.e., information where the identity of an individual has been permanently removed. However, it does include ‘indirect identifiers’ or ‘pseudonymous data’ (i.e., information which alone doesn’t identify an individual but, when combined with certain additional and reasonably accessible information, could be attributed to a particular person).

If you register to use our services, our website or applications, we may collect the below types of personal data;

Special categories of personal behaviour Through the services we offer we may collect some ‘special categories of personal data’, specifically, this will include genetic data and information about your general wellbeing. Where we offer the option for you to submit details about your ‘mood’ (mood mapping tool), then the data you submit may contain personal health related data.
Technical data Internet protocol (IP) address, your login data, access dates and times, browser type and version, time zone setting and location, operating system information, and other information on the device used to access the website, as provided by the browser.
User generated data When you use our digital services, we may automatically collect and store information in server logs, including details such as device type, learning journey progress, mood map score history, content engagement statistics.
Aggregated data TWP also collect and share ’Aggregated Data’ such as statistical or demographical data derived from your personal data. Note that once in aggregated form, data will not constitute ‘personal data’ for the purposes of UK GDPR, as the data will not directly nor indirectly reveal your identity.

For example, we may collate aggregated data to analyse the average wellbeing and resilience of specific groups of workers in order to identify patterns across varying demographics.

We may also aggregate data in order to provide your organisation with reports on the wellbeing and resilience levels of your teams.

In no scenario, will the sharing of aggregated data contain personal information related to your account, or any personally identifiable user generated data.
