Why do you need my details?
There are different reasons why we might need your personal details – the main ones are to process your donation to us, or to process any orders you may make from the Bike Shop.
In some cases, we would like to use your details to update you on the work we do, and keep you informed about other matters which may be of interest to you and opportunities to get involved with our work.
When dealing with your personal information we will at all times comply with the Data Protection Act 1998, and any other applicable legislation.
Do you pass my details to any other organisations or individuals?
We may allow our staff, consultants, or other providers acting on our behalf access and use your personal information for the purposes which you have provided it to us for. If we do this, we will not give those individuals/organisations any rights to use your personal information (or contact you) except in accordance with our instructions. We will not sell your personal information, and we will not pass your personal information to any third parties except in the circumstances set out in this Policy.
If you have made a gift aid declaration, we may disclose the information you have provided as part of the declaration to HMRC for the purpose of reclaiming gift aid on your donation(s).
We may share or disclose your personal information if we are required to do so by any law or court order.
How do you keep my information secure?
We will take precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or unauthorised alteration of personal information you give us.
We may send communications to you by email. E-mail is not a fully secure means of communication, and whilst we try to keep our systems and communications protected we cannot guarantee this.
We make no representations about any other websites, and when you access any other website through a link on our website (including social media sites) you understand that it is independent from us and that we have no control over that website or the way your personal information is collected through those websites.
Those websites may have their own privacy policies and we encourage you to look at those policies or contact the website operators directly to understand how your personal information is used.
