Why we process your personal data?

Catalyst Foundation will only process your personal data in connection with the purpose for which you provided it. In other words, in order to send you marketing information or email updates about the work we are doing/impact we are creating. In this way, Catalyst Foundation’s processing of your personal data is based on your consent only!

Who your personal data is shared with.

Your personal data will be shared internally within Catalyst Foundation, so that we can fulfil the purpose for which you provided it. Where necessary, we will share your information with our service providers in order to allow them to deliver services to Catalyst Foundation, for example, if we contract with a service provider to host the Website. When we have your consent, we will share your personal information with Catalyst Foundation’s Fundraising Manager if they request details of website subscribers. They may contact you, for example, to invite you to support their activities or to subscribe to their monthly newsletters. Otherwise, we shall only share your personal information if we are required to disclose it by law. Catalyst Foundation will never sell the personal data that you provide. 

Sending personal data outside the United Kingdom.

Where your personal information is transferred to a service provider or one of Catalyst Foundation’s offices outside of the United Kingdom, we will ensure that your personal data is protected to the same extent as it is in the United Kingdom, through one of the following safeguards:

  • Transfer to a country (in the European Economic Area or otherwise) whose national privacy legislation ensures an adequate level of protection of personal data as determined by the United Kingdom government; or
  • Put in place a contract with the service provider or with Catalyst Foundation’s Fundraising Manager, which ensures that they must protect personal data to the same standards required in the United Kingdom.
