By contacting us, visiting our website or making a donation you are agreeing to be bound by this Policy.
We collect personal information about you when you interact with us, for example when you visit our website or contact us via online chat, email or phone.
If you plan to make a donation (regular or one-off), register for payroll giving or set up a fundraising page then further information may need to be collected including your payment information. However, we will not collect “sensitive personal data” about you.
In addition to the above, we collect information automatically about your visit to our website using cookies (see below).
Use of Personal Information
Under Article 6 of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) our lawful basis for processing and holding personal information is ‘legitimate interest’ as it is necessary for us to use this information in order to follow up with you or process your donation.
We will never sell your data to any third party nor will we share your details with other entities for marketing purposes.
Online Giving Ltd (trading as Enthuse) processes our donations and claims back Gift Aid from HMRC on your behalf. You can view their full data policy here.
Please note that if you opt-out of any marketing we will retain a record of your data to ensure that you do not receive any future marketing.
Under certain circumstances, by law, you have the right to:
- Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a “data subject access request”)
- Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you
- Request erasure of your personal information
- Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party)
If you would like to exercise any of your rights, please contact us. Please note that we may need to verify your identity before being able to give effect to any request by you to exercise your rights.
You also have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office in respect of the processing of your personal data.
