Our privacy statement sets out how we use and protect any information that you give us. Your personal information is very important to you and to us. 

We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected so if we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this website or when making a donation, it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement and with the Data Protection Act 1998 and General Data Protection Regulations.

The rules we follow make sure that all organisations are set up to protect any personal data they hold, and to act appropriately if something goes wrong.

The regulations support your right to have your privacy respected and your data protected. They give you easier access to the personal information we hold about you, if you wish to check or change it. They are also designed to give you confidence that your data will be accurate, up-to-date, and well-managed.
Your data may also be available to our website provider to enable us and them to deliver their service to us, carry out analysis and research on demographics, interests and behaviour of our users and supporters to help us gain a better understanding of them to enable us to improve our services. This may include connecting data we receive from you on the website to data available from other sources. Your personally identifiable data will only be used where it is necessary for the analysis required, and where your interests for privacy are not deemed to outweigh their legitimate interests in developing new services for us. In the case of this activity the following will apply:
  1. Your data will be made available to our website provider and third-party payment processing providers.
  2. The data that may be available to them includes any of the data we collect as described in this privacy policy.
  3. Our website provider and third-party payment providers will not transfer your data to any other third party or transfer your data outside of the EEA.
  4. They will store your data for a maximum of 7 years.
  5. This processing does not affect your rights as detailed in this privacy policy.

This policy is effective from 1 January 2023.
