5.Transfer, Use and Storage of Data

5.1 Data Transfer

The Data will be transferred between the Parties in the following ways:

The respectme Reward Website enables the Participating Organisation to enter and upload information relating to their progress and to support internal planning and communication. It will be at Participating Organisation’s discretion to decide what Data will be uploaded, and therefore made available to SAMH.

The Parties may also exchange Data via email on rare occasions and, when this is the case, the Data will be password-protected.


5.2 Use of Data

The Data will be processed/ used by the Parties in the following ways:

The Participating Organisation will upload information on respectme Reward Website in order to engage in the respectme reward programme.

SAMH will have access to uploaded information and will use it to recognise, assess and validate the anti-bullying policy and associated practice. Overall findings for Participating Organisation will not be shared externally by SAMH but may be aggregated up to Local Authority or national level datasets. No schools, settings or individuals will be identifiable within these findings.

The surveys embedded within the respectme Reward Website are for the Participating Organisation to use with staff/volunteers, children and young people and parents/carers, to gather information such as perceptions of issues relating to bullying, experience of bullying and confidence in challenging or reporting any form of bullying behaviour. The surveys are for anonymous completion and there are no free text fields into which comments or personally-identifying information can be entered.


5.3 Data Storage and Retention

The Data will be stored by the Parties in the following ways:

Sections of the respectme Reward Website where Data may be held:

  • Application Process
  • Surveys
  • Evidence-based Practice Portfolio/Storyboard
  • Self-Assessment of Impacts and Outcomes
  • Validation, Recognition and respectme reward

SAMH will retain the Data as long as the Participating Organisation maintains its respectme Reward Account. Should Participating Organisation close its respectme Reward Account, SAMH will retain Data for the period of time required to complete monitoring activities (usually the lapse of the current grant funding cycle).

Should Participating Organisation request SAMH to delete all or part of the Data at an earlier point SAMH may at its discretion grant this request, except in relation to any Data which is anonymised.

Should Participating Organisation’s respectme Reward Account remain inactive for a prolonged period, SAMH may contact Participating Organisation to ask if it wishes to retain the account. If no response is received after 3 attempts to contact, SAMH may close the account and the Data will then be deleted within 12 months from the time of closing the account.
