How we use your personal Information

Edu -grande -81410-unsplash

 

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on 25 May 2018 and organisations processing personal data must comply with the rules which it introduced. Mission Without Borders has always looked after your data with the utmost care, and we welcome the broader protection and enhanced rights that GDPR introduces.

 

This statement explains how Mission Without Borders in the UK ("we", "our" and "the Mission") handles and uses data we collect about our supporters and other people we deal with ("you" and "your"). In broad terms, we use your data to manage the ongoing relationship between the Mission and you, including keeping in touch with you, keeping you up to date on our achievements and work, and engaging with you on how you can continue to contribute to the Mission's life and otherwise engage with and support the Mission.

 

We will not retain your data any longer than necessary, and you can request us to remove it at any time. When changes are made to this statement, we will publish the updated version to our website and notify you by other communications channels as we deem appropriate or necessary.

 

The controller for your personal information is Mission Without Borders (175 Tower Bridge Road, London, SE1 2AG) and Mission Without Borders International. The Mission is not required to have a Data Protection Officer but the person within the Mission otherwise responsible for data protection at the time of issue, and the person who is responsible for monitoring compliance with relevant legislation in relation to the protection of personal information, is Dr. Jos Downey (who may be contacted at jdowney@mwbuk.org; 020-7940-1370).  This is the person to contact if you have any concerns about how the Mission is managing your personal information, or if you require advice on how to exercise your rights as outlined in this statement.

 

The legal basis for processing your personal data is that it is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests, where we have concluded that our interests do not impact inappropriately on your fundamental rights and freedoms, except where elsewhere in this statement we have indicated otherwise. You may ask us to explain our rationale at any time.

 

How your data is used by the Mission

 

We collect and process your personal data, as specified below, for a number of purposes, including:

 

A.       maintaining a record of your contacts with the Mission;

B.       engaging you in Mission events that we believe will be of interest to you, including open events, volunteering opportunities, and other ways you may want to contribute to the work of the Mission;

C.        providing you with information about the development of the Mission's work among beneficiaries, including major initiatives and programmes in our Field countries;

D.       encouraging you to make a financial contribution to the work of the Mission, and processing any suchcontributions;

E.        assessing the likelihood that you will, now or in the future, make a financial contribution (gift) to the Mission;

F.        to respond to your queries, including providing you with any requested information about our programmes, or in the case of sponsorship, your sponsored family or child.


 

Further details are provided in the Appendix. If you have concerns or queries about any of these purposes, or how we communicate with you, please contact us at the address given below.

 

Communications

 

If you are a new contact for the Mission, we will ask you at the outset how you would like to receive news and other communications from us. If you are already receiving such communications, you are able to change your preferences (or ask us to stop sending you news and other communications completely) by emailing us at info@mwbuk.org or by clicking the 'Unsubscribe' link at the bottom of each email we send out. You may request changes at any time.

 

How we share your personal data

 

Personal data is shared with Mission Without Borders International continually and we believe it is in the interest of the Mission, our supporters and beneficiaries to continue such collaborative working.

 

Mission Without Borders International and its Affiliate and Field partner organisations internationally (including the Mission) have a data transfer agreement to govern the sharing of personal data including that of beneficiaries and supporters. This is necessary because they are distinct legal entities. Any transmission of data to or from Mission Without Borders International is managed through agreed processes which comply with GDPR.

 

For clarity, the Mission has a separate database from Mission Without Borders International which has access to the Mission's database; additionally, we maintain other electronic and paper records.

 

Mission Without Borders International has its own data protection statement and procedures - see: https://www.mwbi.org/legal/privacy-policy/

 

Additionally, we share data on a considered and confidential basis, where appropriate, with contractors providing services to you on our behalf or services to us (our "data processors"), as outlined above.

 

We also facilitate communication between individual supporters of the Mission and between supporters and beneficiaries, but in doing so we do not release personal contact details without prior permission.

 

Any transfers of your data to third countries or International Organisations, as set out above, are protected by a Data Transfer Agreement in compliance with GDPR requirements.

 

Your rights

 

You have the right: to ask us for access to, rectification or erasure of your data; to restrict processing (pending correction or deletion); to object to communications or direct marketing; and to ask for the transfer of your data electronically to a third party (data portability). Some of these rights are not automatic, and we reserve the right to discuss with you why we might not be able to comply with a request from you to exercise them.

 

Where you opt out of all future communications or exercise your right to erasure, we will continue to maintain a core set of personal data to ensure we do not contact you inadvertently in future. We may also need to retain some financial records about you for statutory purposes (e.g. Gift Aid, anti-fraud and accounting matters).

 

If you have a complaint about our use of your information, we would prefer you to contact us directly in the first instance so that we can address your complaint. However, you also have the right at any time to contact the Information Commissioner's Office via their website at https://ico.org.uk/ or write to them at:
