- Personal data
Education for Life respects your privacy. Our promise to you is that the information you give us will be treated in total confidence and will be stored and processed in accordance with your rights under the Data Protection Act 1998 and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) 2003.
We will use your personal information to provide you with the Education for Life services or activities to which you’ve signed up and, from time to time, we would also like to send you information about other areas of our work which we think might be of interest to you. If at any time you would prefer not to receive this additional information from us, please do not hesitate to email us at email@example.com or write to us at 5 King Street, Carnforth, LA5 9DU
We will make every reasonable effort to ensure that appropriate security is in place to protect your personal details from loss, theft, misuse, unauthorised access or disclosure.
If you sponsor a child through Education for Life, or are involved in some other Education for Life activity which involves a personal link to our overseas programmes, elements of your personal data necessary to fulfil the activity (e.g. your name and address) will be shared with relevant Education for Life offices in that country. Such countries may not have comparable Data Protection laws to the UK. We will ensure that the minimum amount of data necessary to fulfil the activity is transferred. Education for Life is committed to implementing appropriate procedures, internal controls and technical infrastructure to protect personal data in all of its offices.
We will never share your data with third parties for marketing purposes. Where we do use other organisations to carry out fundraising or communications activities and related administration on our behalf, we remain legally responsible for the handling of your data.
