                                                                         Sending marketing communications

 Our marketing communications include information about our latest breakthroughs, campaigns and lifesaving work and requests for donations or other support. Occasionally, we may include information from partner organisations or organisations who support us in these communications.  We operate an ‘opt-in only’ communication policy. This means that, except as set out below, we will only send marketing communications to those that have explicitly stated that they are happy for us to do so.  We may use information you have given us directly, for example the record of your previous donations to and/or relationship with us, your location and demographics, as well as the type of activity you have been involved with, to tailor our communications with you about future activities.

Events and fundraising

When you have asked for details of JRHYS event, we will send you information including, where relevant, ideas for fundraising and reminders on key information about the activity.

Where you have signed up for an event with a third party and told the event organiser that you wish to fund-raise for us, we may contact you with information and support for your fundraising for that event.

Managing your contact preferences

We make it easy for you to tell us how you want us to communicate, in a way that suits you. Our forms have clear marketing preference questions and we include information on how to opt out when we send you marketing. If you don’t want to hear from us, that’s fine, and you can change your preferences at any time.  Just let us know when you provide your data or contact us on 07470025259 or 

If you’ve decided you don’t want to be contacted for marketing purposes, we may still need to contact you for administrative purposes. This may include where we are processing a donation you’ve made, thanking you for a donation or participation in an event, or keeping in touch with you about volunteering activities you are doing for us.

Building profiles of supporters

At JRHYS, our life-saving work is only made possible thanks to the generosity of our supporters – so it’s vital that our fundraising efforts are as effective as they can be. By developing a better understanding of our supporters through researching them using publicly available sources we can tailor and target our fundraising events and communications (including volunteering opportunities) to those most likely to be interested in them. This allows us to be more efficient and cost-effective with our resources, and also reduces the risk of someone receiving information that they might find irrelevant, intrusive or even distressing.

What information do we collect?

After taking a supporter’s communications preferences into account, we use information we hold on them to research their potential to be a significant donor to JRHYS and collect additional details relating to their employment and any philanthropic activity. We may also estimate their history of charitable giving and how connected they are to JRHYS.

Which information do we use?

We use existing data from JRHYS's own database and combine this with information from publicly available sources such as charity websites and annual reviews, corporate websites, public social media accounts, the electoral register and Companies House in order to create a fuller understanding of someone’s interests and support of JRHYS.  We only use reputable sources, where someone would expect their information may be read by the public.  We avoid any data that we believe has not been lawfully or ethically obtained, and we do not use information sources which have not been broadcast or made public.

We’re committed to putting you in control of your data and you’re free at any time to opt out from this activity. To find out more, please contact 07470025259 or  

Right to have your inaccurate personal information corrected

You have the right to have inaccurate or incomplete information we hold about you corrected.  If you believe the information we hold about you is inaccurate or incomplete, please provide us with details and we will investigate and, where applicable, correct any inaccuracies.  

Right to restrict use of your personal information

You have a right to ask us to restrict the processing of some or all of your personal information in the following situations:  if some information we hold on you isn’t right; we’re not lawfully allowed to use it; you need us to retain your information in order for you to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim; or you believe your privacy rights outweigh our legitimate interests to use your information for a particular purpose and you have objected to us doing so.

Right to erasure of your personal information

You may ask us to delete some or all of your personal information and in certain cases, and subject to certain exceptions, you have the right for this to be done. 

Right for your personal information to be portable

If we are processing your personal information (1) based on your consent, or in order to enter into or carry out a contract with you, and (2) the processing is being done by automated means, you may ask us to provide it to you or another service provider in a machine-readable format.

Right to object to the use of your personal information

If we are processing your personal information based on our legitimate interests or for historical research or statistics, you have a right to object to our use of your information.

If we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes, and you wish to object, we will stop processing your information for these purposes as soon as reasonably possible.

If you want to exercise any of the above rights, please contact us. We may be required to ask for further information and/or evidence of identity. We will endeavour to respond fully to all requests within one month of receipt of your request, however if we are unable to do so we will contact you with reasons for the delay.

Please note that exceptions apply to a number of these rights, and not all rights will be applicable in all circumstances. For more details we recommend you consult the guidance published by the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). 

As set out in the “Sending marketing communications” section above, we will never sell or rent your information to third parties for marketing purposes.  However, we may disclose your information to third parties in connection with the other purposes set out in this policy.  These third parties may include:

  • business  partners, suppliers and sub-contractors who may process information on our  behalf;
  • if  you are a researcher, volunteer advisory panels, any joint funders of      research or host institutions.
  • if  you are a legacy giver, we may share information with co-beneficiaries;
  • advertisers  and advertising networks
  • analytics  and search engine providers;
  • IT  service providers.

Where we are under a legal or regulatory duty to do so, we may disclose your details to the police, regulatory bodies or legal advisors, and/or, where we consider this necessary, to protect the rights, property or safety of JRHYS, its personnel, visitors, users or others.

We reserve the right to disclose your personal information to third parties:

  • if  we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your  personal information to the prospective seller or buyer of such business  or assets; and/or
  • if  substantially all of our assets are acquired by a third party, personal      information held by us may be one of the transferred assets.

If you are unhappy with any aspect of how we are using your personal information we’d like to hear about it. We appreciate the opportunity this feedback gives us to learn and improve. You can find out more and read our Complaints Policy on our web pages.

You also have the right to lodge a complaint about any use of your information with the Information Commissioners Office, the UK data protection regulator.

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time.  If we make any significant changes in the way we treat your personal information we will make this clear on JRHYS Website or by contacting you directly.

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please let us know by contacting our Supporter Services team at or by phone on 07470025259 our support hotline.
