All personal data will be processed by African Initiatives in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and our Data Protection Policy and Guidelines. This data will be used for administrative purposes so that we can manage our operations effectively.
This information is used primarily for communication between the charity and its supporters but may also be used for marketing, promotional or fundraising purposes. Data Protection and the use of personal data: As a user of personal data, African Initiatives is registered under the Data Protection Act 1998, which includes the maintenance of supporter records for the administration of the charity; the information held is mainly provided by supporters themselves through post, online and telephone. We maintain data on your records beyond your period of support in order to provide statutory information, and we may occasionally contact you to keep you informed about the charity.
African Initiatives will collect data from you to process your donation, personalise your supporter experience or provide you with the goods or services you have requested. Personal details collected this way will only be used to provide you with information you would reasonably expect or have agreed to. This may include using your data, in combination with public data sources, to analyse, research and profile our donor base, so that our marketing communications with you and others are appropriate and cost-effective. We promise to make all reasonable efforts to keep your details secure and will only share them with suppliers working on our behalf. Except as required by law, we will never share your details with other organisations to use for their own purposes. Read our full privacy here.
If at any time you decide that African Initiatives cannot hold your data, you can withdraw your consent to us using your data in this way by contacting the charity on 0117 915 0001 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
