We will never sell your data on to any third parties or use it to sell you anything. We do not rent, sell or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.

Why we collect your data

Under the current information rights law, we are required to have at least one lawful basis to process your personal data dependant on how we collected and processed your information. We use a condition called legitimate interest to process your data and your consent. We process your data in our legitimate interest to provide support to wounded, injured and sick service personnel, veterans and their families.

We determine that in you providing your personal data to us you do so either to support the Charity as a volunteer, to make a financial donation to the charity or to receive support. We will therefore process your data according to the way in which we have received your data as follows:

  • When you submit your personal data to us either via a donation, webform or printed form we will store that data in our database and record any activities that you undertake. We do this to enable us to maintain any preferences you have for receiving information from us and to ensure we suppress your contact when you have requested us to do so.

  • If you undertake events or challenges or volunteer for us, then we will use your personal data to fulfil our legal requirements in administering those relationships.

  • If you donate to us, we will use your personal data to record and provide a receipt for your donation.

  • If you are a beneficiary or seek support from us where we collect data from you in relation to your health, ethnicity, sexual orientation or criminal history we process this with your explicit consent. Where we cannot reasonably be expected to gain consent from you, we will process your data under a legal condition of ‘substantial public interest’ complying with our charitable objectives to provide you support where you are eligible.

We may also contact you if we need to ask for or provide additional information or to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied to remain on our list. We don’t rent, sell or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses. We will not use the information you provide us with for any purpose other than newsletter related.
