Respecting your privacy:
We do not sell, rent or pass on any information about you to other organisations. However, we may share your data with our subsidiary company. If you do not wish us to use this information in this way, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We may also need to pass on information when required by law or by regulatory body (for example, for a Gift Aid audit by HMRC or if asked by a law enforcement agency).
We may provide third parties with information about visitors and users to our site, but this information, as explained above, is both aggregate and anonymous.
We carry out targeted fundraising activity to ensure that we are contacting you with the most communications that are relevant and provide you with an improved experience of Wessex Children’s Hospice trust. Occasionally we may use profiling techniques or use third party screening and insight companies to provide us with general information about you. Such information is compiled using publicly available data about you or information that you have already provided to us. We may use these services to ensure we maintain an accurate database, with particular care given to ensuring we do not attempt to contact those on our database who have passed away.
This activity also assists us in understanding the people who support us and helps us to make appropriate requests to supporters. To opt out of your data being used for profiling and wealth screening techniques simply email email@example.com.
Occasionally, we employ agents to carry out tasks on our behalf, such as fulfilling orders or processing donations. These agents are bound by our data handling policy to protect your privacy just as we would ourselves.
Under the General Data Protection regulations, there are a number of defined reasons that allow us to legitimately process your personal information. One of these reasons is called 'legitimate interests'.
Under legitimate interests we can process personal information if we have a genuine and legitimate reason to do so and we are not infringing on your rights or best interests
This allows us to use your information for our legitimate business interests to support the region’s life-limited and life-threatened children, young people and their families.
This will only be done with appropriate consideration being given to your rights and any impact this activity may have on you personally.
We make a long-term promise to those in our care, and want our supporters to be able to join us on that journey, if that is their wish. We believe that our supporters and those who have previously shown an interest in our charity would be keen to learn more about the impact they have had on the lives of children, young people and families, and also better understand how they might support these same families in the future.
Processing data under legitimate interests may, following a balancing exercise, enable us to send you marketing and other communications that are relevant and timely. It may enable us to undertake customer research and improve our future communications. It may enable us to thank our supporters and inform them of the impact of their donation. And it may assist us in processing orders, keeping in touch about events you have signed up for, giving you future opportunity to update your communications preferences or ensuring we can conduct investigations if required.
When we process your personal information for our legitimate interests, we will consider and balance any potential impact on you and your rights under any relevant law. We will never use your personal data for any activity that results in your interests being considered secondary to our own (other than in instances where we are required to do so by law).

We will process this information in order to assess your application and complete any checks that are required before an offer is made. We may also use this information to monitor recruitment and employment statistics. In instances where your personal data needs to be shared with a third party, such as the Disclosure and Barring Service, we will make you aware of this beforehand.

Safe and secure:
We maintain a high level of physical and electronic security in relation to the collection, storage and disclosure of you information. We take reasonable steps to ensure that any information we hold about you is protected. When processing financial transactions, we use www.sagepay.co.uk and www.paypal.com, which both encrypt information given over the internet. The software scrambles data transmitted between your computer and our server, where it is unscrambled securely. We are not sent any account information by these providers, and store no data that could allow anyone to make a payment or access individual bank accounts.
As we all know, the internet carries risks. While we make every reasonable effort to ensure the information sent to us is done securely, we cannot warrant the security of information transmitted to us through the internet. When you transmit information to us via the internet, you do so at your own risk.
In the unlikely event that your data is leaked, we will be completely transparent in letting you know how, when and why this happened, and the steps we intend to take to put things right.
Changes to the way we store and process your data:
From time to time, we will make changes to our privacy notice and policy to keep them up to date and relevant. Please make sure your check regularly to see what has changed. We will post notices when our privacy statement changes.
