How do we Gather Data about You?
When you submit an online form, sign up for a newsletter, participate in an event, or donate, Switch180 collects personal information from you.
Additionally, we get data about you from unaffiliated third parties like Just Giving and youth organisations. If you have given your consent for the transfer of your data to us, then we will only receive data from third parties in this manner. When providing your information, you should review their privacy statement to understand how your data will be handled.
When you visit our websites, watch a video about a charity on social media, or view and engage with our digital ads and content, we may compile information about the digital channels you use and how you use them. This will enable us to produce content that is both interesting and relevant for both you and potential donors.
Some of the information we use comes from sources that are open to the public, like Companies House, news articles, or open postings on social media sites like Facebook and LinkedIn.
What kind of data is Gathered from you?
To receive communications from Switch180 and our programmes Snow Camp and Stop, users must voluntarily opt in.
Consider: There are no pre-ticked boxes.
Through online forms and newsletter sign-ups, users can opt in. Users can unsubscribe whenever they want by clicking the unsubscribe button or by emailing Switch180.
Switch180 may gather the following types of personal information from you: – Your title, name, gender, and date of birth – Your contact information (address, email, phone number) – Family and spouse/partner details, relationships to other supporters – Your professional activities and employment details – Current interests and activities – Gift aid status and records of donations – Contact preferences – Your IP address, location, browser type, and information on how you use the internet.
Information that is deemed “sensitive data” may occasionally be included in the personal information that Switch180 gathers. This could include particulars about a person’s racial or ethnic background, their religious convictions, their health, as well as details about any criminal offences.
Your credit or debit card information is collected by our third-party payment processors, who specialise in the safe online capture and processing of credit/debit card transactions, not by us if you make a donation online.
Where appropriate, we may also inquire about your passions and reasons for supporting Switch80. We never make this inquiry a requirement; we only want to know the response if you feel comfortable sharing it with us.
