We use cookies on our website. We will ask you to consent to our use of cookies when you first visit our website.

Data available to website provider

Your data may be available to our website provider to enable us and them to deliver their service to us, carry out analysis and research on demographics, interests and behaviour of our users and supporters to help us gain a better understanding of them to enable us to improve our services. This may include connecting data we receive from you on the website to data available from other sources. Your personally identifiable data will only be used where it is necessary for the analysis required, and where your interests for privacy are not deemed to outweigh their legitimate interests in developing new services for us. In the case of this activity the following will apply:

  • Your data will be made available to our website provider
  • The data that may be available to them include any of the data we collect as described in this policy.
  • Our website provider will not transfer your data to any other third party, or transfer your data outside of the EEA.
  • They will store your data for a maximum of 7 years.
  • This processing does not affect your rights as detailed in this privacy policy.

What information do we collect about you?

We collect information about you when you make a donation, sign up as a fundraiser, book a place on a course or event, request our counselling service, buy a product, sign up for the latest news, or make an enquiry. The information we collect about you is used to process this. If you agree, we may contact you about activities, services or campaigns we think may be of interest to you.

We never pass on or share your personal information to others, unless legally required to do so.

We will keep your personal data unless you ask us to delete it. If you ask us to delete your personal data, we will do so provided it is not within any period for which the data must be held due to accountancy or any other rules.


If you have consented to receive information, you may opt out at a later date. You have a right at any time to stop us from contacting you about activities, services or campaigns. If you no longer wish to be contacted about activities, services or campaigns, you may contact us in any of the ways given at the end of this notice.
