2.4. Your sensitive personal information

We do not hold sensitive customer data, such as specific health conditions, financial situation, criminal convictions or personal circumstances of a customer.
Where government funding is made available through our partners, such as our Utility partners, local councils or their representatives, and such funding is conditioned by the existence of a vulnerability (financial, health or of other nature), we will ask you to provide any relevant personal information directly to such authorised organisations. We will not ask you for and will not store evidence of income, doctor’s certificates and any other paperwork containing sensitive personal information.
Where you qualify for such funding based on a vulnerability as assessed by an authorised organisation, we will record a ‘vulnerability flag’ in our system. This will generalise the information, ensuring no sensitive information is stored, but allowing us to act on your behalf for securing the funding from our partners.
E.g. based on health and/or financial information you provide directly to your local council, they issue a certificate of funding eligibility. Your personal circumstances are not detailed on the certificate. We add a ‘vulnerability flag’ on your account and store the certificate, then share it with the funding providers on your behalf, to secure the funding you are entitled to.
