Legal basis for using your information

In most cases, we will only use your personal information where we have your consent or because we need to use it in order to fulfil a request from you (for example, because you have registered your interest in a fundraising event or want to hear about work opportunities).

However, there are other lawful reasons that allow us to process your personal information and one of those is called 'legitimate interests'. This means that the reason that we are processing information is because there is a legitimate interest for The Foundation to process your information to help us to achieve our vision of a world where a young person’s ability and aspiration alone determine their career path.

Whenever we process your personal information under the ‘legitimate interest' lawful basis we make sure that we take into account your rights and interests and will not process your personal information if we feel that there is an imbalance.

Some examples of where we have a legitimate interest to process your personal information are where we use your personal information for data analytics, conducting research to better

understand who our beneficiaries and supporters are, improving our services, for our legal purposes (for example, dealing with complaints and claims), or for complying with guidance from the Charity Commission.

Security

The Foundation uses the Salesforce CRM database for storing your data and from time to time may also use Google Analytics for traffic tracking activity on our website. These organisations provide high levels of security and protection. You can find out more about Salesforce's position on security here and Google's here.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored on your computer, mobile phone or other device that websites and applications use for security purposes and to deliver products, services, and advertisements, and to understand how they are used. With these technologies, a website or

application can store information on your browser or device and later read that information back.

We explain more about each of these technologies and how they are used on this page.

Why does The Foundation use cookies?

We use cookies [on our website] to:

  • Show what matters to you - they help us know who you are so we can show content that’s most relevant to you, including features, products, and ads
  • Improve your experience - they work with the sites’ features and help us improve our products and services.

Your data may also be available to our website provider to enable us and them to deliver their service to us, carry out analysis and research on demographics, interests and behavior of our users and supporters to help us gain a better understanding of them to enable us to improve our services. This may include connecting data we receive from you on the website to data available from other sources. Your personally identifiable data will only be used where it is necessary for the analysis required, and where your interests for privacy are not deemed to outweigh their legitimate interests in developing new services for us.
