BASIS FOR PROCESSING INFORMATION
LRCF relies on its legitimate interest to process information on donors, supporters, WiP members and other contacts, as all have expressed an interest in our activities by: discussing or setting up a fund, attending our events, becoming a WiP member or attending WiP events and supporting the annual charities. LRCF also relies on its Legitimate Interests to process data submitted as part of a grant application in order to facilitate that application and connect the group with funds.
All communications that constitute direct marketing will only be sent by post under this basis.
For email communications, we will obtain and record explicit consent, which you can withdraw at any time by contacting us using the details below.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure.
In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect.
We will not retain your information for longer than is necessary. This will normally be for a maximum of six years after our relationship with you has ceased although we are occasionally required to hold data for longer periods for research and statistical purposes or specific programmes.
LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement.
The law requires us to tell you that you have a variety of rights about the way we process your data. These are as follows:
- Where our use of your data requires consent, you may withdraw this consent at any time.
- Where we rely on our legitimate interest to process data, you may ask us to stop doing so.
- You may request a copy of the data we hold about you.
- You may change or stop the way in which we communicate with you or process data about you, and if it is not required for the purpose you provided it, then we will do so. Activities like processing Gift Aid donations, or managing a Philanthropy Agreement, may mean we cannot entirely stop processing your data. We will always endeavour to comply with such a request, however.
- If you are not satisfied with the way we have processed your data then you can complain to the Office of the Information Commissioner here: https://ico.org.uk/concerns/handling/
