Privacy matters but it can be confusing. This page explains our approach to privacy and how we use your personal information.
How we use personal information
When you make a donation via this site we collect your basic personal information so that we can administer your donation to our chosen charity and, where you have given your consent, we share that information with the charity so that they can claim Gift Aid. We will not send you any marketing information.
When you register for an account on this site we may send you an email to confirm your registration, but we will not send you any marketing information.

Measuring our visitors
We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so we don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited our site.
The information we collect from analytics helps us understand what parts of our sites are doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better.
You can learn more about Google Analytics.
We allow people who are making donations the opportunity to leave comments to offer support or encouragement to fundraisers. If you see anything offensive or revealing we can remove these comments; contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Any comments you leave are publicly visible on the Internet alongside your name.
We use PayPal to process donations via credit card and PayPal. They will have access to your personal and payment information. When paying by credit card, all your details are managed and stored securely at PayPal.
Personal information you provide to PayPal will be shared with us including, your name, full address and amount you have donated for the purposes of displaying in the site and within our records for auditing purposes and to enable our chosen charity to claim Gift Aid (where you have given consent). We do not receive or store any other PayPal account or payment card details.
We take many precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. These precautions include:
- Use of SSL encryption for sensitive data
- Hardware stored in secured datacentres behind firewalls
- All access to information restricted by password and/or secure key
- Restrictions to what information can be accessed via any location
Whilst we take great care to ensure any confidential information remains protected we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the Internet.
You are responsible for keeping your password and user details confidential. We will never ask you for your password, so please don’t trust anybody asking you for it.
