Who has access to your information?

We will not share your information with third parties for commercial or marketing purposes.

We may pass your information to our third party service providers, agents, subcontractors and other associated organisations for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf (for example to process donations and send you mailings). However, when we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service and we require those third parties not to pass your information on or to retain it once their work for us is completed. We will never release your information to third parties for them to use for their own direct marketing purposes. We will never pass your information on to third parties for reasons other than those outlined above unless you have requested us to do so; or we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.

When you are using our secure online donation pages, your donation is processed by a third party payment processor, who specialises in the secure online capture and processing of credit/debit card transactions. If you have any questions regarding secure transactions, please contact us.

We may transfer your personal information as part of an organisational restructure, or if we’re under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation or to enforce or apply our terms of use or to protect the rights or safety of our supporters. However, we will take steps with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected.
