Data Protection

Partnership for Children understands how important it is that your personal information remains secure and we are committed to respecting and safeguarding your privacy. This policy has been written in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and explains how we collect, use, store and manage personal information.

What sort of information do you collect?

We may collect personal information such as your name, postal address, date of birth, email address, telephone/fax number, whether you are a UK tax payer (for Gift Aid purposes) or your bank details if you are supporting us financially.  We do not collect information deemed by the Data Protection Act to be 'sensitive', such as race/ethnicity, physical or mental health conditions, or religious beliefs. 

How do you collect information and why?

We collect information from you if you complete and submit a form to us or send us a letter or email; for instance, to make a donation or sign up for a sponsored event, or if you contact us to request further information about our work.

How do you use my information?

We will use your information according to your intention when you supply it to us and for administration purposes; for instance, to send you our regular newsletter; process a donation; respond to a request for information; communicate with you regarding a fundraising event; and keep you informed about our work.

Will you sell or share my information?

Partnership for Children will not sell your information to third party organisations, including other charities, or share your information for their benefit.

In some circumstances, we may need to share your information with staff members, partners or third-party service providers, for instance if you sign up for a fundraising event which is run by an external organisation.

We may have to disclose information if required to do so by law.

How secure is my information?

We take the privacy and security of our friends and supporters very seriously. We use a secure server when you make a donation via our website and use a variety of technical and administrative measures to protect personal and/or sensitive information that we store on local computer files or as paper records within our office.

How long will you keep my information for?

We will keep your information for as long as we have an active relationship with you. If you no longer wish to receive communications from us, we may keep basic information about you on file to enable us to comply with your wishes and not contact you further.
