SECURE AND COMPLIANT
Your personal data are stored securely by us and used for communications and fundraising in support of our mission. We comply with current UK regulations on personal data, communications, and privacy. We only share personal data outside our organisation for specific and limited purposes, subject to strict safeguards (e.g. with printers, email service providers, statutory bodies). We use some secure third-party data processors whose servers store data outside the UK but fully comply with UK regulations.
HOW LONG WE KEEP DATA
We consider our relationship with friends, donors and supporters to be life-long and we will retain much of your data indefinitely unless you request otherwise.
You can ask to view, correct or erase your data at any time, and are free to withdraw any consents you give. You can complain to the UK Fundraising Regulator if we fail to respect your rights. Please note that in some cases we may be unable to erase your data if retention is required to meet our legal obligations.
News. If you want to receive news mailings from us, you must opt in to one of our mailing lists. You can do this via our website.
Appeals. We may wish to send you occasional fundraising communications by post. You are free to get these by email instead, or to opt out altogether by selecting one of the options below.
RESEARCH WE UNDERTAKE
We research our contacts to discover those who may have the ability to offer larger gifts, using public-domain sources (e.g. internet searches). Sometimes we may use a secure third-party research service to develop our understanding of those we suspect of falling into this group: their interests, financial capacity, social networks, philanthropy. This information makes it more likely that our fundraising approaches will be welcomed and appropriate.
