What information we collect:

We obtain data from our website and other collection methods for a number of reasons set out above, including providing you with the most useful relevant information about Southampton Hospital Charity. We do this through collecting and analysing both anonymous, or aggregate data, and personal data volunteered by you online or through other collection methods.

In some areas of our website, for example forms, orders and emails we collect personal details such as your name, address, telephone number and email address. We use this information only for the reason you have supplied it or any other reason for which you have given us permission to do so.

Where relevant, information is provided to explain why the data is being collected and how it will be used. In all cases we will give you the optionto 'opt out' of receiving future communications including email, or text marketing.

In addition to this, as a fundraising organisation we undertake in-house research and, upon occasion, we engage with specialist third party providers to gather information from publicly available sources. You will always have the right to opt out of this processing. Research will also be used to carry out due diligence on donors in line with the charities Gift Acceptance Policy and to meet money laundering regulations.

All research is carried out with the express purpose of understanding more about you as an individual so we can focus conversations we have with you about fundraising and volunteering in the most effective way, and to ensure that we provide you with an experience as a supporter, or potential supporter, which is best for you. 

We will also collect information about your visit to our website (for example, the date and time of your visit and the pages that you view). This information is not connected to you personally, and is in aggregate form. This kind of data helps us understand how our visitors use our site so that future website development can better meet your needs.

Under the Data Protection Act, we have a duty to protect any information we collect from you. We do not pass on your details to any third party unless you give us permission to do so.

All staff working at Southampton Hospital Charity have undertaken data protection and information governance training so that they understand how to handle your data.
