Data protection laws recognise certain categories of personal information as sensitive and therefore requiring greater protection, for example information about your health, ethnicity, and religion. We do not routinely collect such sensitive data about you unless there is a clear and valid reason for us doing so and data protection laws allow us to.

How and why your information is used

We may use your information for several different purposes, including:

  • providing you with the services and or information you requested
  • processing resource/publication orders and training/event costs that you have requested and/or purchased
  • sending you communications including our monthly e-newsletter, information about campaigns, events, training, membership renewal reminder when due, and the promotion of our services
  • keeping a record of your relationship with us i.e., member, volunteer, trustee, partner and/or funder
  • administering your donation or fundraising, including processing Gift Aid
  • responding to, or fulfilling any requests, complaints or queries you make to us
  • conducting analysis and research to better understand how we can improve our membership offers, services, products and/or information
  • analysing the numbers and type of people and or organisations who have become members or have accessed training/events to demonstrate our impact, apply for funding and report to our funders
  • seeking your views or comments on the services we provide
  • notifying you of changes to our services.

Disclosure of your information

We do not disclose information about you to any third-parties without your consent, except where we believe the law requires it.

Keeping your information safe and secure

When you provide us with your personal information, it is stored on a secure server based in the United Kingdom.

When you are on a secure webpage, a lock icon will appear on the website browser beside the webpage address.

Non-sensitive details such as your email address are transmitted normally over the internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.

Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Where you create a password permitting access to membership areas of our website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.

Your rights over your information

By law, you can ask us what information we hold about you, and you can ask us to correct it if it is inaccurate.

You can also ask us to give you a copy of the information and to stop using your information.

To submit a request for your data, please contact us by email or post using the contact information provided above.
