We will ensure that all Trustees and volunteers who handle personal data on our behalf are aware of their responsibilities under this privacy notice and other relevant data protection and information security policies, and that they are adequately trained and supervised.

If we share statistics produced through your provision of personal information we do not link any personal contact data to those statistics.
We may also disclose information we collect:

Grounds for using your personal information
We rely on the following legal grounds to process your personal information, namely:
Performance of a contract - We may need to collect and use your personal information to enter into a contract with you or to perform a contract that you have with us.
Consent - Where required by applicable laws, we will rely on your consent for direct marketing.
Protection and storage of the information
We deploy administrative, managerial, technical, and physical safeguards designed to comply with applicable legal requirements and safeguard the information that we collect. This includes, when required or appropriate and feasible, obtaining written assurances from third parties that may access your data that they will protect the data with safeguards designed to provide a level of protection equivalent to that adopted by us.
