  • to provide you with the information and services that you request or that we feel might interest you;

  • to notify you about changes to our service;

  • seeking your views or comments on our work and services

  • handling and thanking you for a donation that you have made

  • analysing responses made in relation to research

  • handling a job or a volunteer/ associate application

 

Information we collect about you. We will use this information:

  • to administer our site and for internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research, statistical and survey purposes;

  • to improve our site to ensure that content is presented in the most effective manner for you; as part of our efforts to keep our site safe and secure;

  • to measure or understand the effectiveness of advertising we serve to you and others, and to deliver relevant advertising to you; 

  • to measure or understand the take-up and effectiveness of our services to you and others, and to improve and further develop these. 

 

We regularly review how long we hold onto your personal information. We are required to hold some types of information to fulfil our legal obligations (for example for the collection of gift aid). However, we will only ever hold your personal information on our systems for as long as necessary.

 

We will only ever use your information for the purpose we told you when you originally provided it. As a broad example, if you apply for a job vacancy, your details will only be used for recruitment purposes – they will not be used for marketing purposes.

 

The legal basis that we rely on for processing your information will depend on the circumstances in which it is being collected and used. However, in most cases, it will fall into one of the following categories: 

  • Where you have provided your consent for us to use your data in the way that we have explained. For example, we will always ask consent before sending you e-mails about our work 

  • Where we need to process your information to carry out our legal obligations, such as processing gift aid

  • Where the processing is necessary to carry out the performance of a contract, such as processing a donation

  • Where we have a legitimate reason to process your information to support our aim of a world with reduced levels of poverty

 

We have provided further explanation below about legitimate interests:

  • Broadly speaking, legitimate interests means we may process your personal information where we have a genuine and legitimate reason and are not harming any of your rights or interests.

  • When we process your information for our legitimate interests, we will always consider and balance any potential impact on your rights. As such, we will never use your information for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you.

  • It is always your choice whether you want to receive information from us. You can opt-out at any time by contacting us at projectmanager@lyf.org.uk and stating ‘Opt Out’ and your email address

  • Business partners, suppliers and sub-contractors for the performance of any contract we enter into with them;

  • Research institutions or students whose work will support the mission and aims of the Lorna Young Foundation and our initiatives;

  • Advertisers that require the data to select and serve relevant adverts to you and others.

We may also use such aggregate information to help advertisers reach the kind of audience they want to target;

  • Analytics and search engine providers that assist us in the improvement and optimisation of our site.

  • Law enforcement bodies and/or regulatory entities, to comply with any legal obligation or court order.

We will always take steps to ensure that your privacy continues to be protected.

 

WHERE WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL DATA

The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area.
