We collect other information about you or your needs if you are a member, participant, service user, volunteer, freelance worker or staff member. This could include information on your disabilities, carers, dietary requirements or emergency contacts.
We only collect personal data about you which ensures we can keep you informed about our work, projects and events and how you can help us raise money if that’s something you want to do. Information we collect may include your name, telephone number, email address, postal address.
We will not collect or keep personal information about you unless we need it.
We will not collect more information than we need and we will not keep it longer than we need to.
