The information we collect from you directly or indirectly may include:
- Your name
- Your address
- Your email address
- Your taxpayer status for claiming Gift Aid
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
How your information is used
We may use your information to:
- Process a donation that you have made
- Provide you with information about our work or our activities
- Process volunteer registration
- For administrative purposes (for example, we may contact you regarding an event for which you have registered)
- Analyse and improve the content and operation of our website
- Where we are required by law, to disclose or otherwise use your information.
We will not sell or rent your information to third parties.
We will not share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.
We take appropriate physical, electronic and managerial measures to ensure that we keep your information secure, accurate and up to date, and that we only keep it as long as is reasonable and necessary.
Although we use appropriate security measures once we have received your personal information, the transmission of information over the internet is never completely secure. We do our best to protect personal information, but we cannot guarantee the security of information transmitted to our website, so any transmission is at the user’s own risk. However, any payment card details (such as credit or debit cards) we receive on our website are passed securely to our payment processing provider according to the Payment Card Industry Security Standards.
Our Privacy and Cookie Policies take into account several laws, including:
- The Data Protection Act 1998
- The Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003
- General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679, which came into force in the UK in May 2018 and replaced the Data Protection Act 1998.
- Generally, our processing of your personal information as described in this policy is allowed by these laws because we have a legitimate need to carry out the processing for the purposes described above. Some processing may also be necessary so that we can perform a contract with you or because it is required by law.
Your credit or debit card information
If you use your credit or debit card to donate to us, buy something or make a booking online, we pass your card details securely to our payment processing partner as part of the payment process. We do this in accordance with the Payment Card Industry Security Standard (PDF download), and don’t store the details on our website or databases.
