What information do we collect?

Personal information is any information that can be used to identify you including, for example, your name, postal address, email address, telephone number and date of birth. We may collect personal information when you contact us about our events and activities, make a donation to us, sign up to our newsletter, or otherwise give us personal information. We may use your information in the ways outlined below, unless you are specifically notified otherwise.

What do we use your information for?

We may use your personal information to give you information about the Charity. We may also use your information for administrative purposes, to let you know about changes to our services or policies, to create a profile of your interests and preferences. We will not sell or pass on your details to any third parties, but we may sometimes also share your information with our trusted events and activities suppliers and partners who are authorised to act on our behalf. In addition, from time to time, we may exchange your personal information with other organisations for the purposes of fraud and credit risk reduction. In these circumstances we always require strict compliance with our instructions and require that your personal information is not used by third party organisations for their own business purposes. We will always seek your consent for the use of your personal information, either by giving you the option to opt out of its use or by asking you to specifically allow us to use it. When we seek your consent to using your personal information, we will tell you what we want to use it for and we will not use it for any other purpose. Other than as set out in this policy or as required by law, your personal information is not shared with third parties or used in any other way unless you agree. When we collect your personal information we use strict security procedures to prevent unauthorised access. However, no data transmission over the internet is 100% secure. Therefore, whilst we make every effort to protect your personal information, we cannot absolutely guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk.
