Privacy policy

The Stewards’ Trust is committed to protecting your privacy. We want you to understand how we manage any information held about you.
 
The law:
The Trust is committed to ensuring any personal data will be dealt with in line with the Data Protection Act 1998 and General Date Protection Regulation (GDPR).
 
What we do:
The Stewards’ Trust needs to hold certain personal information on its employees, volunteers, supporters, guests and trustees to carry out its day to day operations, to meet its objectives and to comply with legal obligations. To comply with the law, personal information will be collected and used fairly, stored safely and not disclosed to any other person unlawfully.
The Stewards’ Trust will hold personal information about guests (including children) on file but will not release the information to any third party unless specifically required for safety reasons. Some details may be shared with our authorised volunteer teams.
We are applying the 'necessary to fulfil a contract' condition to allow us to process the Personal Data of guests. For guests who have previously applied for our events, we will also apply the 'legitimate interest' condition to allow us to send information about Stewards' Trust events in the future. Guests will be taken off this distribution list if they do not attend a Stewards' Trust event for three years from the date of GDPR. They can also unsubscribe at any time themselves.
We do not knowingly collect any personal information from a child without the consent of the child's parent(s).
Under the Data Protection Act you are entitled to request access to such information about your child which is held on our database.
 
Online donations:
The Stewards’ Trust website is a safe platform for our supporters to visit and on which to make online donations. Any donations made online are secure. When you make a donation online we ask for your name, contact details, address, and credit card information.
The information we collect is used to process your donation(s) and to verify credit card data. 
Children under the age of 16 should obtain parental consent before donating.
 
Do we share your information?
We will never sell, swap or share your personal information with third parties.
We may disclose to third parties aggregate statistics regarding donations but these statistics do not include any personally identifying information.
All credit card donations are processed by a third-party financial institution who will only use your personal information for the purpose of processing the transaction.
