1. What information do we gather?
As a supporter of, or someone interested in FACT you may be asked to provide us with personal information such as your name, address, telephone number and email address when you contact us.
This information is collected for internal administrative purposes only and will not be passed to any other organisations. Some of the information we collect through forms (e.g. on our website) may be marked as mandatory and other information is provided voluntarily. Mandatory information allows us to contact you and keep you up to date with what we are doing as an organisation. Voluntary information allows us to create a picture of you as a (potential) supporter allowing us to tailor our interactions more specifically for your needs e.g. if you highlight an interest in volunteering opportunities, we’ll be able to let you know if an opportunity becomes available.
2. Confidentiality
FACT will treat your data with the strictest confidence and have put in place both physical and online measures to maintain its security. This confidence will be maintained, except where we are obliged to share it for legal or regulatory reasons, or where instructed by law enforcement authorities.
3. Donation details
FACT will hold individual’s banking details in the case of standing orders and Gift Aid registration. This enables us to monitor our income and set our budgets accordingly. Banking details around one off gifts, or donations will not be kept on record and will be deleted as appropriate once a transaction has been completed.
4. How do we use your information?

2) It provides us with an opportunity to share the events and fundraising activities that we have planned.

4) Having your data benefits FACT financially as we can claim gift aid (an extra 25%) on some donations/gifts.
5) Knowing your preferred method of communication enables FACT to work more effectively with you ensuring you get the information you require in a way that works for you.
6) It allows us to keep track of your wishes and the permissions you have given regarding your data.
5. Who will we share this information with?
We do not share the information we collect with any third party. We are subject to the Data Protection Act 2018.
