Privacy Policy


This is a summary of how we use your information.  You can read our full Privacy Policy here.

We sometimes receive or collect personal information about you when you interact with us.  For example, when you donate to us, request our fundraising packs, newsletters, use our websites or get in touch with us.

We will use your information for a number of purposes, including the following:
-to send you newsletters or fundraising packs. If you’re an individual fundraiser we will only send you marketing if you’ve asked to hear from us. If we know that you work or fundraise at a school, we may send post to that school addressed to you;
-to process your donation, payment or refunds;
-to tell your story, promote our fundraising and charitable aims or allow our corporate partners to promote their fundraising where you have consented to this;
-to contact you about any submission or content you provide or deal with your queries;
-to allow us to better understand our fundraiser base;
-where you have told us you are fundraising with an educational establishment, to support and encourage your fundraising.

We will never sell your personal information or share it with other parties for their own marketing purposes. However, we can’t run our charity or fundraise without involving other people.  We may share your information with:
-other people who help us provide our events, websites, donation platforms, marketing and related services;
-the BBC e.g. to contact you about any fundraising activity or story you’ve sent to us;
-the public if you have given us consent to do so;
-where you have told us you are fundraising with an educational establishment, with our schools’ partners.

You can stop all communications from us at any time by using the “unsubscribe” details we include in each communication or by contacting us here.
