Personal information is data that may be used to identify you. We collect this in the following ways:
We may also receive information about you from publicly available sources (see ‘How we use your information’ below).
The information we hold may include some or all of the following:
If you make a donation, or pledge a donation, we may collect:
If you visit our website it may also be possible to identify you from the website usage information we collect:
If you apply for a job with us, or join us as a volunteer for a trip or to serve at an event, we may collect additional information (see ‘Applying for a job or as a volunteer with us’ below).
We do not collect sensitive personal information unless there is a clear reason for doing so. We take additional steps to safeguard sensitive information, as necessary.
We may use your information to:
Additionally we may use your information to meet legal requirements or in an emergency to protect life (see ‘The legal basis for using your information’ below).
In order to update information which may be inaccurate, to provide a better experience to supporters who may be able to make significant donations to our work, or to identify individuals who may wish to support our work in future, we may from time to time access publicly available information about you (for example, Companies House records, internet search engine results, and public postings on social media sites), or use trusted external providers to do this on our behalf more cost-effectively. We may use this information to personalise our communications, to issue invitations to events which may be of interest, and to ensure any requests for funds we make are appropriate and do not cause offence. You can opt out of this processing at any time (see ‘Updating your information and preferences’ below); if you do we will not retain any publicly sourced information about you which we have acquired for this purpose.
We may also access publicly available information to carry out due-diligence on donors to ensure we comply with money laundering regulations.
If you apply to work for us, or enquire about work with us, we may request additional information from you, for example on your application form or CV. This may include sensitive information (such as your religious beliefs). We may use this information to:
If your application is unsuccessful for any reason, information provided during the application process will be deleted in accordance with best practice and legislation.
If you volunteer to travel with us or serve at an event, or enquire about such opportunities, we may request additional information from you. This may include sensitive information (such as health information). We may use this information to:
If you travel overseas with us, we may share information with our partners overseas to facilitate your trip. If this includes sensitive information we will let you know which information would be transferred and gain your consent for this.
It is important to us that any information we hold about you is safe. We seek to maintain a high level of security in relation to the collection, storage and disclosure of your information. For example, our computer network is protected and monitored.
We restrict access to your information only to those staff members whose job roles require such access and who have received suitable training in data protection and security.
We make limited use of trusted external providers to work on our behalf (see ‘When we share your information’ below). We only do this after making contractual arrangements with them to ensure your information is held securely and deleted when the task has been fulfilled. When we use external companies, we remain responsible for your information.
We do not store your credit or debit card details. These are handled securely by trusted payment processors. We may hold bank account details for the purpose of collecting direct debits in accordance with direct debit mandate rules.
We keep your personal information only for as long as required for the relevant purpose and in accordance with legal requirements. For example, we will retain details of donations to meet tax and accounting requirements, but we will only hold sensitive medical information provided to participate in an overseas trip until the trip is completed. Where your information is no longer required, we ensure it is deleted or disposed of in a secure manner.
Legacies are an important way many supporters choose to give to us. We may retain limited information for longer periods to administer legacies, for example to demonstrate how long someone has supported us or to communicate with the families of those leaving legacies to us.
If you ask us to do something for you, or if we have asked and you have given your permission, we will use your information for that purpose. For example, if you request information from us we will use your contact details to send it to you. You can withdraw your consent at any time (see ‘Updating your information and preferences’ below).
We may use your information to serve you or to meet our charitable objectives, if necessary. We will do this only after considering your interests. We will not use your information in ways that a reasonable person would not expect in the circumstances. For example we may:
You can amend your preferences at any time (see ‘Updating your information and preferences’ below).
If required to do so, we would use your information to meet a statutory requirement or other legal obligation. For example, this might happen if we were compelled by a court order, or if we suspected that a serious offence such as money laundering was being committed.
In a critical situation we may need to disclose your information in order to protect someone’s life. For example, if you or your child travels overseas with us and require emergency medical care, we may share information with the emergency services if it is necessary in order to safeguard life.
Your privacy is important to us. We never share your information with other organisations for their marketing purposes.
In order to serve you better and to fulfil our charitable objectives efficiently, we use trusted external suppliers and may need to share information with them on a limited basis. For example:
We share only the information necessary to fulfil the purpose, it may only be used by them for that reason, and must be deleted by them when no longer needed.
We may exceptionally need to share your information to comply with legal obligations or in an emergency situation (see ‘The legal basis for using your information’).
