We share personal information with our affiliated charities around the world. As a result, your personal information may be transferred to locations outside Europe as well as within it for the purposes described above.

Protecting your data outside the EEA (EU Member States and Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway)

We may transfer data that we collect from you to third-party data processors in countries that are outside the EEA such as India or the USA. This might be required, for example, in order to fulfill your donations, process your payment details  or provide support services.

If we do this, we have procedures in place to ensure your data receives the same protection as if it were being processed inside the EEA.

Any transfer of your personal data will follow applicable laws and we will treat the information under the guiding principles of this Privacy Notice.

Keeping your information and information security

How long we hold your personal information for will vary and will depend principally on:

  • the purpose for which we are using your personal information – we will need to keep the information for as long as is necessary for the relevant purpose, and
  • legal obligations – laws or regulation may set a minimum period for which we have to keep your personal information.
  • We will ensure that the personal information that we hold is subject to appropriate security measures.
