You may choose not to provide us with personal information, although this may affect our ability to provide you with the required service or your ability or participate in the activity in question.
When you provide it to us indirectly

We may also receive data which you have agreed to share with charities, or that you have submitted to receive another service and you have agreed for the information be shared with others. Examples of this include using the Royal Mail National Change of Address Update service, where you request your mail to be redirected and for organisations who contact you to be updated with your new address details.

We also use data from Interest-based advertising or 3rd-party audience data (such as age, gender, and interests) with our web analytics.
What personal information we collect?
The type and quantity of information we process and how we use it depends on why you are providing it to us. Examples include making a donation, submitting an enquiry, or making a complaint.
Information we collect may include;
- Your name.
- Your contact information including address, email address, telephone numbers.
- Your date of birth.
- Your bank account or debit/credit card details, for making donations or purchases.
- Other pertinent information which you have freely provided to us in conversations or correspondence.
Where appropriate we may also collect?
- Information relating to your health, for example if you are taking part in a high risk event.
- Why you have decided to donate to us, if you are comfortable telling us this.
Special Category Data
Certain types of personal information are in a special category under data protection laws, as they are considered to be more sensitive. Examples of this type of sensitive data would be information about health, race, religious beliefs, political views, trade union membership, sex life or sexuality or genetic/biometric information.
We only collect this type of information about our supporters when there is a clear reason for us to do so, for example asking for health information if you are taking part in an event. We may also collect this type of information if you make it public or volunteer it to us – for instance if you tell us your medical history as part of a conversation about your experiences with University Hospitals Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust.
We do not process special category data on a large or organised scale, for example in the scenario above, we may use this special category data to inform our relationship or conversations with you, but we will never use it for marketing purposes either on an individual or mass basis.
Supporters under the age of 18 years?
When you register with us, you are stating that you are over 18 years of age or are a minor acting with parental consent so please ensure you have consent of your parent or responsible guardian.
How will we use your personal data?
We will only ever use your personal information for the purpose(s) originally intended, those which you agree to, or those which you would reasonably expect us to. Below are some examples of how we may use your personal information:-
- To provide you with the services, products or information you have requested.
- To process any donation(s) we may receive from you.
To ensure we know how you prefer to be contacted.
- To provide you with information about our work or our activities, including asking you to help us raise money or donate money to our charity, but always in accordance with how you have agreed to be contacted.
- To invite you to participate in surveys or research.
- To publicise your story and experiences of University Hospitals Derby and Burton Hospital to raise awareness of our work. This will only happen after discussions with you, and with your express consent. We keep you updated about when and where we use your story.
- For administration purposes e.g. we may contact you about a donation you have made or event you have expressed an interest in or registered for.
- For internal record keeping, such as the management of feedback or complaints.
- To analyse and improve the services we offer.
- The use of IP addresses to block disruptive use, to record website traffic or to personalise the way our information is presented to you to identify your approximate location.
- Where it is required or authorised by law.
- For the purposes of credit risk reduction or fraud prevention (regrettably some people target charities for illegal purposes such as money laundering and, quite rightly, we are required to monitor financial activity and report suspected fraud to the appropriate authorities).
- Building profiles of supporters and targeting communications.
- We may use profiling and screening techniques to ensure communications are relevant and timely, and to provide an improved experience for our supporters. Profiling also allows us to target our resources effectively, which supporters tell a charity is a key priority for them. We do this because it allows us to understand the background of the people who support us and help us to make appropriate requests to supporters who may be able and willing to give more than they already do. Importantly, it enables us to raise more funds, sooner, and more cost-effectively, than we otherwise would. When building a profile we may analyse geographic, demographic and other information relating to you in order to better understand your interests and preferences in order to contact you with the most relevant communications. In doing this, we may use additional information from third party sources when it is available, as detailed earlier in this Policy.
The legal basis for processing your information
Data protection laws mean that we must have a legal basis to process personal information. The relevant legal bases set out under the GDPR, are listed below, where we also detail examples of our activities which we process under each basis.
Consent is where we ask you if we can use your information in a certain way, and you agree to this. For example, any time we send you marketing via electronic means – that is SMS or e-mail – we will only do so when we have clear and unambiguous consent from you. You have the right to withdraw consent for any future use of your information for these purposes at any time.
We have a basis to use your personal information where we need to do so to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation. For example, in some cases we may need to share your information with a regulator such as the Information Commissioner or Fundraising Regulator.
Performance of a contract or taking steps at your request to prepare for entry into a contract.
We have a basis to use your personal information where we are entering into a contract with you or performing our obligations under that contract. Examples of this would be if you are buying something from us, for instance purchasing merchandise through our online shop, or if you are applying to work or volunteer with us.
We have a legal basis to use your personal information where it is necessary for us to protect life or health; these are examples of your vital interest. For instance, if there were to be an emergency impacting individuals at one of our events which required us to contact people unexpectedly or share their information with emergency services.
We have a basis to use your personal information if it is reasonably necessary for us (or others) to do so, this means it’s in our or their legitimate interests – provided that the reason your information is used for is fair and does not unduly impact your rights.
We consider our legitimate interests to include all of the day-to-day activities Derby and Burton Hospitals Charity carries out with personal information. Some examples of where we rely on legitimate interests are:
- Analysis and profiling of our supporters using personal information we already hold.
- Updating your address using third party sources if you have moved house (please see the “How do we collect information?” section above for details of this).
- Use of personal information when we are monitoring use of our website or apps for technical purposes.
- Use of personal information to administer, review and keep an internal record of the people we work with, including supporters, volunteers and researchers.
- Sharing of personal information between relevant teams within Derby and Burton Hospitals Charity.
- Where you have signed up with us on a charity place for a third party event, for example a sponsored run not organised by us, we may share personal information with the third party event organiser so they can effectively administer the event.
When using legitimate interests, we assess any potential impact on you, whether it is intrusive from a privacy perspective and whether it is aligned your rights under data protection laws.
When we process sensitive personal information, known as Special Category data, (please see the “What personal information we collect” section above), we require an additional legal basis to do so under data protection laws, so will either do so on the basis of your explicit consent or another route available to us at law for using this type of information (for example if you have made the information manifestly public or have freely provided this information to us). We do no process Special Category data on a large or organised scale.
How we protect your personal information?
We take appropriate physical, electronic and managerial measures to ensure that we keep your information secure, accurate and up to date, and that we only keep it as long as is reasonable and necessary.
We undertake regular reviews of who has access to information that we hold to ensure that your information is only accessible by appropriately trained staff, volunteers and contractors.
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 other 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.

Will we disclose the information we have collected to outside parties?
Derby and Burton Hospitals Charity does not rent, swap or sell personal details to any third party.
Some of the systems operated by Derby and Burton Hospitals Charity are provided by third party service providers including fully hosted IT solutions, for example Direct Debit payment processing, at remote sites and accessed via the internet.
In addition we may use external companies to assist with fundraising activities such as newsletter production & mailing house services, supporter recruitment and management, lottery and data analytics.
Where these services are provided personal information may be released to the third party organisation under an agreed contract, which will stipulate how data is to be transferred, secured and destroyed and the purpose for which it may be used.
Derby and Burton Hospitals Charity remains responsible for the data and ensuring that it is processed in accordance with GDPR.
We take all reasonable steps to ensure any third-party processing data on our behalf adheres to our data protection principals highlighted in this policy by undertaking a due diligence review of the data protection policies of the proposed data processor to ensure as far as reasonably practicable the safety, security and availability of data.
Some of our suppliers may run their operations outside the European Economic Area (EEA). Although they may not be subject to same data protection laws as companies based in the UK, we will take steps to make sure they provide an adequate level of protection in accordance with UK and EU law. By submitting your personal information to us you agree to this transfer, storing or processing at a location outside the EEA.
We may need to disclose your details if required to the police, regulatory bodies or legal advisors.
We will only ever share your data in other circumstances if we have your explicit and informed consent.
How long will we retain your data?
We consider various criteria when determining the appropriate retention period for personal data including:
- the purposes for which we process your personal data and how long we need to keep the data to achieve these purposes.
- how long personal data is likely to remain accurate and up to date.
- for how long the personal data might be relevant to possible future legal claims.

Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies:
What is a cookie?
It’s a text string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer’s hard disk (or the memory of your mobile device) so that the website can remember who you are. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the “lifetime” of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number.
The only personally identifying data used by cookies is your IP addresses. You can choose not to accept cookies by setting the preferences on your internet browser. If you do not accept cookies from us this may impair or prevent some or all of the services which we provide to you.
Tracking pixels: A tracking pixel is a piece of code, which contains a small image that is loaded when a user visits a website or opens an email, and is used to track certain user activities. Some societies also use tracking pixels to understand how you found out about their fundraising activity and measure the success of their marketing campaigns. For example, if they have invested budget in an online advertising campaign, tracking pixels can tell them whether you arrived at one of our websites from the advert they published, and whether you went on to make a purchase.

Where we are managing a raffle or lottery on behalf of a society, that society is the data controller, and all data captured through our services is shared with them. In some cases, a society may ask us to share data with a third party that helps them run a fundraising initiative. For example, where a Society recruits lottery players through a recruitment company, we may be asked by the Society to share information with that company about successful and failed payments.
Links to Third Party Sites:

4. How we store and secure information we collect
Information storage and security:
We use data hosting service providers in the London to host the information we collect, and we use technical measures to secure your data. For more information on where we store your information, please contact support@TheFundraisingFoundry.com to request our system architecture diagrams.
While we implement safeguards designed to protect your information, no security system is impenetrable and due to the inherent nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that data, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our systems or otherwise in our care, is absolutely safe from intrusion by others or from accidental loss or corruption
If you use our Services, responsibility for securing access to the information you put into the Services rests with you and not The Fundraising Foundry Ltd. Whilst all of our sites are issued an SSL certificate as part of our website service, we strongly recommend that Society administrators restrict access to their Fundraising Foundry dashboard. Please note that our storage of your information is incidental to our provision of our services to you and does not absolve you of your responsibility to back-up your important information
How long we keep information:
How long we keep information we collect about you depends on the type of information, as described in further detail below. After such time, we will either delete or anonymise your information or, if this is not possible (for example, because the information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your information and isolate it from any further use until deletion is possible.
We retain your account information for as long as your account is active and a reasonable period thereafter in case you decide to re-activate the Services. We also retain some of your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, to resolve disputes, to enforce our agreements, to support business operations, and to continue to develop and improve our Services. Where we retain information for Service improvement and development, we take steps to eliminate information that directly identifies you, and we only use the information to uncover collective insights about the use of our Services, not to specifically analyse personal characteristics about you.
If you have elected to receive marketing emails from us, we retain information about your marketing preferences in our Customer Relationship Management tool for a reasonable period of time from the date you last expressed interest in our Services, such as when you last opened an email from us or ceased using your Fundraising Foundry account. Unless we are required by law to contact you (for example, to send a ticket email if you purchase raffle/lottery tickets, you will always be given the option to opt-out of marketing communications. We retain information derived from cookies and other tracking technologies for a reasonable period of time from the date such information was created. See section 5 below for more details on how to control your information.
5. How to access and control your information
You have certain choices available to you when it comes to your information. Below is a summary of those choices, how to exercise them and any limitations.
You have the right to request a copy of your information, to object to our use of your information (including for marketing purposes), to request the deletion or restriction of your information, or to request your information in a structured, electronic format. You may contact us at support@TheFundraisingFoundry.com to request assistance.
Your request and choices may be limited in certain cases:
For example, if fulfilling your request would reveal information about another person, or if you ask to delete information which we or your administrator are permitted by law or have compelling legitimate interests to keep. Where you have asked us to share data with third parties, you will need to contact those third-party service providers directly to have your information deleted or otherwise restricted. If you have unresolved concerns, you may have the right to complain to a data protection authority in the country where you live, where you work or where you feel your rights were infringed.
Update your information:
If you believe the information we hold on you is inaccurate, or your information has changed, please contact support@TheFundraisingFoundry.com and advise us of any amendments you wish to be made.
Deactivate your account:
If you no longer wish to use our Services, please contact us. Please be aware that deactivating your account does not delete your information. For more information on how to delete your information, see below.
Request that we stop using your information:
In some cases, you may ask us to stop accessing, storing, using and otherwise processing your information where you believe we don’t have the appropriate rights to do so. For example, if you are no longer an active user, you can request that we delete your account as provided in this policy. Where you gave us consent to use your information for a limited purpose, you can contact us to withdraw that consent, but this will not affect any processing that has already taken place at the time. You can also opt-out of our use of your information for marketing purposes by contacting us, as provided below. When you make such requests, we may need time to investigate and facilitate your request. If there is delay or dispute as to whether we have the right to continue using your information, we will restrict any further use of your information until the request is honoured or the dispute is resolved, provided your employer does not object (where applicable).
Opt out of communications:
You may opt out of receiving promotional communications from us by using the unsubscribe link within each email, or by contacting us as provided below to have your contact information removed from our promotional email list or marketing/CRM database. Even after you opt out from receiving promotional messages from us, you will continue to receive legal and transactional messages from us regarding our Services. For example, if you purchase a raffle/lottery ticket from a website managed by us, it is our legal obligation to send you your ticket information.
Send “Do Not Track” Signals:
Some browsers have incorporated “Do Not Track” (DNT) features that can send a signal to the websites you visit indicating you do not wish to be tracked. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret the DNT signal, our Services do not currently respond to browser DNT signals. You can use the range of other tools we provide to control data collection and use, including the ability to opt out of receiving marketing from us as described above.
Data portability is the ability to obtain some of your information in a format you can move from one service provider to another (for instance, when you transfer your mobile phone number to another carrier). Depending on the context, this applies to some of your information, but not to all of your information. Should you request it, we will provide you with an electronic file of your basic account information.
