Your personal information
You may give us your personal information directly, through making a donation, signing up to an event or when you communicate with us by post or telephone. Sometimes when you support us, your information is collected by an organisation working on our behalf, such as a professional fundraising agency. In these circumstances, they only process your personal information in line with our instructions and we are responsible for your information at all times.
When we ask for your personal information, we give you the option to opt out of communications via post, telephone (which includes text message) and email.
In some cases, we may use information in the public domain to support our fundraising purposes. It should be noted that GDPR does not apply to information already in the public domain such as Companies House data and that any information collected is done so in a manner that is adherent to data protection regulations.
What we do with it
We do not give or sell your personal information to any other organisations, except those that are employed directly by us to raise funds or manage fundraising events for us. If you make a donation to OGCancerNI, sign up to an event or sign up to receive communications from us, we will normally collect your name and contact details. We will retain your bank account information if you are making a regular donation. We may also keep other information that you have given us, such as your date of birth, to enable us to build a better profile and understanding of our donors and help to identify potential new supporters. If you are taking part in a sporting or challenge event, we may also keep your emergency contact details for that purpose only and for the duration of the event.
Why we need it
We use this information to thank you for supporting us and to provide you with further information about our activities according to your consent preferences and interests. We also use it to fulfil our legal responsibilities for financial and Gift Aid reporting, to administer our events and to enable us to process your donations.
How long we keep it
We will hold your information for only as long as is necessary to the end of your relationship with us and in accordance with our data retention policy.
