We operate an email list for keeping supporters up to date with the latest news about our work and also opportunities to support it through donations.
We will always ask for your express consent before adding you to our email list. There is also the option to choose which kinds of emails you would like to receive.
The email system that we use for mailings tracks opens and link clicks and we use this data to check how relevant what we send is to recipients.
You can update your email preferences or unsubscribe from future emails at any time – either using links at the bottom of the email, or by emailing [email protected].
On social media
We monitor interactions with our social media channels in order to assess our impact and reach, and attempt to understand it better.
Please be aware that whenever you use social media platforms, including via the sharing buttons on this website, your activity is more often than not publicly accessible and identifiable to you.
When you donate
We retain personal information of donors where this is given as part of our financial record-keeping, and for processing Gift Aid claims in order to maximise the value of donations where this applies.
What we do to keep your data safe
Data access is restricted only to appropriately trained staff and volunteers with a specific need to use the data. We use secure cloud services with strong passwords for all storage of personal data.
External data processors
We will not share your data beyond CHPI except with verified external suppliers where necessary for the specific purpose for which your data has been supplied. For example, emails are processed by Mailchimp for our mailing list – but only at our express direction and not for any other purpose.
