Privacy Statement

Preservation of your privacy is important to the Tofauti Foundation and we are committed to letting you know how we use your personal information and to making only responsible use of your data.

References to “we”, “us”, “you” or “our” in these Terms and Conditions are references to the Tofauti Foundation which is a restricted fund under the auspices of The Master Charitable Trust, Charity Number: 1139904.

This statement relates to the various contact types associated with the Tofauti Foundation including supporters, members and donors.

1. What personal data we collect

The Tofauti Foundation asks for and collects some basic personal information and details from you.  This information will include your full name, organisation or company name, email address and phone number. We also may ask for some non-personal data (e.g. how you heard about the Tofauti Foundation or which Tofauti charitable activities you are interested in).

If you provide information on behalf of another person, you will need to tell them how to find this privacy statement and make sure they agree to us using their information for the purposes set out in it.

In all instances where we collect the data from individuals it’s in order to deliver our charitable services and activities. 

2. How we use your personal data

We use your personal information to manage your account on our customer relationship management system and/or to provide details on our charitable activities.

 We never share your information with third parties without asking for specific, unambiguous consent. For example, some of our fundraising events are delivered alongside a relevant partner. On some occasions, we might ask you if we can share those details with the partner. This will be very clear on the fundraising event sign up form. If in any case, this consent is not received then your data will not be shared.

From time-to-time, we may use your feedback and attribute it to you (e.g. by quoting a name and organisation alongside the feedback). We take this information from the surveys you are asked to complete and we do so to talk about our activities publicly or demonstrate the impact of the charity to key stakeholders e.g. funders. We never share your information without asking for specific, unambiguous consent. This will be very clear on the relevant forms you complete. If in any case, this consent is not received then your data will not be shared.

3. Supporter, member and donor communications

As a member, donor or supporter of the Tofauti Foundation you will receive regular, relevant communications from us. Signing up as a member, supporter or donor includes automatic subscription to these communication channels. From time to time, we may also contact you to ask you to engage with various campaigns we run. 

You have the right to withdraw your consent from receiving our communications at any time. For more information, see section 4 below.
