Personal data that you provide us
When you contact us, donate, take part in a sponsored event, or interact with us in any other way, we may receive basic personal information about you, such as your name, address, telephone number,
email address. We do not collect any special category data of financial information from you.

Why we need it
We need this basic information in order to respond to correspondence you have sent to us, to keep
you updated on our events, send you information about our work and how you can continue to
support YMCA.

You have the right to let us know at any time if you want to change how you hear from us or advise us
if you no longer wish to receive any further communications from us. You can do this by calling 01472 359621 or emailing

What we do with it
We only ever use your personal data with your consent, or where it is necessary:

  • to enter into, or perform, a contract with you
  • to comply with a legal duty
  • to protect your vital interests
  • for our own (or a third party’s) lawful interests, provided your rights don’t override these.

In any event, we will only use your information for the purpose or purposes it was collected for (or
for closely related purposes).

We may process personal information for certain legitimate business purposes, which include some
or all of the following:

  • where the processing enables us to enhance, modify, personalise or otherwise improve our
    services/communications for the benefit of our customers
  • to identify and prevent fraud
  • to enhance the security of our network and information systems
  • to better understand how people interact with our websites
  • to provide postal communications which we think will be of interest to you
  • to determine the effectiveness of promotional campaigns and advertising.

Whenever we process data for these purposes we will ensure that we take account of your personal
data rights at all times.

Our legitimate business interests do not automatically override your interests - we will not use your
personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have
your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law).

How long we keep it
We will only use and store information for as long as it is required for the purposes it was collected
for. We will review what information we hold and delete what is no longer required. We will not
retain your data for any longer than necessary.

Accessing and updating your personal information
You have data subject access rights and can therefore ask us for a copy of the personal data we hold
about you. Please also help us to keep your information up to date by letting us know of any changes by emailing
