How we will use personal information

Your personal information will be accessed only by our staff and, where appropriate, by our trustees or other professionals working for us with our express permission and in accordance with our privacy policy. We may on occasion share email addresses with other named organisations if we wish to invite you to an event we are running in partnership. We may also use standard UK-GDPR compliant professional tools to enable us to send out communications from time to time. We will not otherwise share your personal information except where you give us your permission to do so, or when required by law.

We may get in touch with you by email from time to time if you are a main contact from a past or present grantee organisation or have otherwise worked with us or expressed an interest in our work. We will do this only where we have a legitimate interest, for example to seek your views or update you on our work or to invite you to an event. If you ask us not to contact you we will act on your request immediately and ensure that you are not contacted again.

Sharing your information

We will only share your personal information with third parties where we have your consent, a legitimate interest to do so, or we are required to by law.
