We collect personal information from you when you enquire about our activities, register/sign up for an event, make a donation, enter a raffle, apply for or accept a job, volunteer, engage with our social media channels, apply for grant funding, respond to a survey we have sent you, or otherwise provide us with your personal information and agree to be contacted.

We may also collect this type of information if you make it public or volunteer it to us when engaging with us.

Information you provide to us indirectly

Your information may be shared with us by third parties, for example independent event organisers, fundraising sites like Just Giving or other organisations engaged by us in the future to raise funds for the charity. These independent third parties will only do so when you have indicated that you wish to support Lewisham Greenwich NHS Charity and with your consent. You should check their Privacy Notice when you provide your information to understand fully how they will process your data.

Information provided about you by a friend or relative signing you up for one of our events.

We also use third parties to collect data on our behalf to support our activities. This might include processing your donations, setting up Direct Debits, running raffles, event registrations, and ensuring our records are as up to date as possible through running address and detail verification checks.

Information from other sources

In addition to the information you give us, we may add information from publicly available sources including data from, for example, reputable newspapers, company websites, Companies House, the Charity Commission, Who’s Who and Debrett’s, LinkedIn/Twitter. We may also use geographic and demographic information based on your postcode.

We do this in order to manage our fundraising effectively and to give you the best experience by tailoring our approaches to you according to your interests as well as the level at which you could potentially support us. This also enables us to manage our fundraising efficiently and effectively so we can raise more to spend on our beneficiaries.

We also obtain data from public sources to ensure the addresses and postcode information we hold on you is kept up to date.
