How do we collect information? 

Wherever possible, we will collect information directly from you.

We may also collect information from public sources. We will not collect information from other third-party sources without your consent.

How do we use your information?

We will use your personal information to provide services to you, to respond to communications from you, to conduct research and statistical analysis (on an anonymised basis), to tell you about our services (including contacting you electronically), and to protect and/or enforce our legal rights and interests.
Where you consent, we may also use your personal information in annual reports, on our website and in marketing materials. This may include disclosing details of any donations you have made, services we have provided to you and any details relating to Funds you have established.

All personal information (including information relating to anonymous donations) may be used for internal management and reporting purposes. Our Board and staff may have access to donors’ information (including anonymous donors’ information) but this will not be disclosed to third parties except as set out below.

When will we disclose the information to third parties?
