Whenever you provide such information, we are legally obliged to use your information in line with all laws concerning the protection of personal information including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) effective May 25th 2018.

The term “personal data” includes any information that enables you to be identified, such as your name, physical address, e-mail address and phone number. 

General Statement

Any personal information which you volunteer will be treated with the highest standards of security and confidentiality, strictly in accordance with current data protection legislation.

Privacy Statement

This statement relates to our privacy practices in connection with this website. Any external links to other websites are clearly identifiable as such. These third party websites have their own privacy policies, including policies on their use of cookies, and we urge you to review them. They will govern the use of personal information you submit or which is collected by cookies whilst visiting these websites. We cannot accept any responsibility or liability for the privacy practices of such third party websites and your use of such websites is at your own risk.

1. Collection and use of personal data

Lessons for Life does not collect any personal data about you on this website, apart from information which you volunteer. When you contact Lessons for Life to make a donation, sign up to any of Lessons for Life's activities or online content, such as newsletters, competitions, or message boards, or engage with Lessons for Life via social media channels, we may receive and retain personal information about you. By submitting your details, you enable Lessons for Life (and where applicable any sub-contractors we may use) to raise funds and to provide you with the goods, services, information, activities or online content you select.

Lessons for Life will use your personal information for a number of purposes including the following:

  • in relation to any correspondence you have entered into with us whether by letter, email, text, social media, message board or any other means;  
  • for "service administration purposes", which means that Lessons for Life Foundation may contact you for reasons related to donations you have made or the activity or online content you have signed up for;
  • for internal record keeping;
  • to fulfil sales contracts you have entered into with Lessons for Life;
  • to contact you about any content you provide;
  • to invite you to participate in surveys or research about Lessons for Life or our work (participation is always voluntary);
  • for marketing purposes where you have specifically agreed to this;
  • to provide you with information about our activities or online content you have agreed to receive;
  • to personalise the way Lessons for Life Foundation content is presented to you;
  • to use IP addresses to identify the location of users, to block disruptive use, to establish the number of visits from different countries;
  • to analyse and improve the activities and content offered by the Lessons for Life website to provide you with the most user-friendly navigation experience. We may also use and disclose information in aggregate (so that no individuals are identified) for marketing and strategic development purposes.

We will keep your information confidential except where disclosure is required or permitted by law (for example to government bodies for tax purposes or law enforcement agencies for the prevention and detection of crime, subject to such bodies providing us with a relevant request in writing). We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity. If you request us not to send you marketing information we will keep a record of your contact details and appropriate information to enable us to comply with your request not to be contacted by us. Where you contribute material to us, e.g. user generated content or in response to a particular campaign we will generally only keep your content for as long as is reasonably required for the purpose(s) for which it was submitted unless otherwise stated at the point of generation.

Lessons for Life Foundation may disclose your personal data to other entities within the EU that are affiliated with Lessons for Life and to third parties located in the EU to the extent that such disclosure is not incompatible with the purposes for which the personal data are collected as mentioned in this policy, but only if they provide adequate privacy protection. In particular, we will pass your personal data on to Worldpay, SagePay, Paypal (or other service provider) for the purpose of processing any donation you may make to Lessons for Life, and if you have made a gift aid declaration, we will pass your personal data on to HMRC for the purpose of reclaiming tax on behalf of Lessons for Life.
