We use the information that you have given us in order to process donations, provide you with goods and services, consider a nomination and to ensure that we are holding accurate and up to date information about you.

Under the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR), the lawful bases we rely on for processing this information are: [delete as appropriate]

(b) We have a contractual obligation. (c) We have a legal obligation.

Except as required by law, we will not share your information with other organisations and we do not purchase data from any third parties.

Transmission of information over the internet is never completely secure. We will do our best to protect any information transmitted to our website, but cannot guarantee the security of it, if given this way.
