Your Data

20th April 2018

You will likely be aware of the increased focus on data protection and the way in which organisations process and use your personal information.

Much of this activity is driven by the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which will come into force on 25 May.

We want to assure you that ECF has always taken your privacy and the security of your information seriously and will continue to do so.

We have used this change in regulation as an opportunity to review our approach and update our privacy policy, which you can view by clicking here.

We believe that ECF has, what is termed, a legitimate interest in staying in contact with its donors and grant recipients to keep them updated on our progress and activities. We will therefore, continue to do this. If however, at any time, you would like us to stop contacting you, we will immediately respect your request. We will only hold any data that we need to keep for legal reasons (i.e. financial transactions).

We will only send you electronic marketing (e.g. our e-mail newsletter) with your explicit consent and we will be in touch with about this in the near future.

If you have any questions about the data we hold on you or how we use it, please do not hesitate to call Steven Mackenzie via e-mail or by calling 01245 356018.
