What information do we have?

Clients

We collect personal and contact information on you and your company or organisation, including the names of our contacts, their email addresses and telephone numbers. We occasionally collect survey/ market consultation information and may also collect details of attendance at YORhub events, e.g. annual conference.

As YORhub takes payment directly from the framework supplier, no financial information on our clients is held bar that relating directly to projects (tender values etc.).

Framework Suppliers

We collect personal and contact information on you and your company or organisation, including the names of our contacts, their email addresses and telephone numbers. We collect bank details, transactions and financial information (for invoicing, accounting purposes only). We occasionally collect survey/ market consultation information and may also collect details of attendance at YORhub events.

Framework suppliers are procured through YORtender. Information submitted at tender stage will be stored on that system and the Council’s network. See the YORtender privacy notice for full details.

Applicants to a YORhub framework

We collect information from applicants to YORhub frameworks. Successful applicants should refer to ‘Framework Supplier’ information in this privacy notice. For those who were unsuccessful, contact details and any other information submitted to YORtender will be stored on that system and the Council’s network.

Why do we collect this information?

Clients

To fulfil a contract (an order and/or associated work), manage the YORhub frameworks or because we believe you have a legitimate interest in our products or services and we want to market them to you. We might also use the information to profile you in order to make more specific offers to you or to market to you.

Framework Suppliers

Your information is used to manage the YORhub frameworks and fulfil YORhub contracts.

Sub-contractors

Our Supply Chain Engagement Programme (SCEP) can help any business interested in supplying construction services or goods to our frameworks. It seeks to connect our framework suppliers with sub-contractors across our region to contact them to assist with YORhub projects.

We also hold training events for sub-contractors. These events are designed to assist sub-contractors in key areas, e.g. tendering, to help them win work through our supply chain engagement programme YORscep and beyond.

 

What we do with the information

YORhub is jointly run by five local authorities: East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Sheffield City Council, Leeds City Council, Scarborough Borough Council and Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council. Information collected by YORhub is shared between member authorities to the extent required to manage the YORhub frameworks.

Social Media

You can also engage with us on our social media platforms. We use Twitter and LinkedIn. There we may post about YORhub projects and your organisation to promote the frameworks and the framework suppliers. If you send us a message on these platforms, the data will be stored by the services themselves. The privacy policies for these platforms can be found on Twitter and LinkedIn.

Surveys and consultations

From time to time, we conduct surveys and consultations to understand client and contractor behaviours, opinions and attitudes.

We use SurveyMonkey as a third-party service when conducting these services. See SurveyMonkey’s privacy policy.

Any quantitative or qualitative data from our surveys or consultations that we then share with our clients or third parties is anonymous, and no personally identifiable information is shared.

Clients

We will contact you to discuss your project(s), provide procurement advice and request performance updates during the contract and at the end.
