    - make an enquiry with us;

4. Basis for using your personal data

We will use your personal data to help us ensure that we provide, improve and develop our services for you.

We need to have a valid reason to use your personal data. This is called the "lawful basis for processing". Sometimes we might ask your permission for us to do something with your personal data: for example, when you give your consent to allow us to contact you by email about a new fundraising initiative. At other times, we don't need to ask your explicit permission because we have another lawful basis for processing your personal data, and you might reasonably expect us to use your personal data. For example, sending you information about our relevant activities in a service you have enquired about would be in our legitimate interests, where we are using your personal data in a way that you would reasonably expect, and which has a minimal impact on your privacy – see below for more information on our legitimate interests.

Collected information may be used in the following ways:

  • where it is necessary for our legitimate interests. We are required to carry out a balancing test of our legitimate interests in processing your personal data against your interests and rights under the Data Protection Laws. We will only process your personal data when your interests and rights do not override those interests. Our legitimate interests include:
    - informing and formulating our future fundraising strategies;
    - ensuring the smooth running of our business;
    - keeping our facilities safe and secure;
    - ensuring our IT systems are robust and secure;
    - keeping adequate records; or
    - collecting and processing donations.
  • where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation: for example, as in some of the circumstances listed below or because we may be required to share your information with certain statutory bodies (see below for further information about whom we may share your information with).

We will only use your personal information for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason, and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If you wish to get more information on the basis on which we process your personal information you can contact us at

5. How we use your personal data

We use the information we hold about you to deliver and improve our business operations. Examples of how we use your personal data may include the following:

  1. to register your interest when you submit an enquiry to us in order that we can respond to you, where such processing is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests;
  2. to administer your donation, where such processing is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests;
  3. to deliver relevant website content to enable us to improve user experience, where such processing is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests in the smooth running of our business;
  4. to enable us to conduct analysis and historical research, where such processing is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests in the smooth running of our business;
  5. to invite you to events, enable you to participate in surveys or any other promotions we may be running, where such processing is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests;
  6. to administer and protect our business, where such processing is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests;
  7. to comply with charity law; and
  8. to deal with any requests from you regarding your rights under this notice to enable us to comply with a legal obligation.


For the purposes of marketing and business development communications, we rely on Legitimate Interest as a legal basis for the processing of your personal data – your Identity and Contact Information - in accordance with this notice. We may use your personal data to tell you about a new promotion or service that we are running, conduct a survey or analyse the information that we have to develop our business.


We use cookies and similar technologies to provide and support our services. Please read our Cookies Policy to learn more.

6. Disclosures of your personal data

We may share your personal information with selected external third parties including:

  • INTO University Partnerships Limited, IUP2 LLP or other INTO group companies as required;
  • third party suppliers, service providers and sub-contractors who perform any services for us: for example, payment processing companies who process your donations on our behalf; or technology companies whose systems we use;
  • analytics and search engine providers that assist us with improving and optimising our website;
  • third parties with whom we have a duty to disclose, for example, where disclosure is necessary due to a legal process or an enforceable governmental request; or third parties we need to share your personal information with if we need to protect you or other people from harm.

We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with data protection laws. We also require third parties to process your personal data for specified purposes in accordance with our instructions.

7. Transferring data outside the UK

The personal information we collect about you will not be transferred to, or stored at, a destination outside the UK.

8. Information security

We place great importance on the steps we take, including the use of different technologies and physical and organisational measures, to protect your information from unauthorised access and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, alteration, disclosure, destruction and damage.

We have in place procedures and technologies to maintain the security of personal data from the point of collection to the point of destruction. We will only transfer personal data to third parties if they agree to comply with those procedures and policies, or if they put in place adequate measures themselves.

9. Information retention

We will retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. We may also retain it for a period after this time as may be necessary and relevant to our legitimate operations.

We consider a number of factors in deciding how long to keep your personal data: the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements (i.e. whether particular laws mean we have to keep certain types of document for a certain length of time).

In some circumstances, we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you. We may also retain a record of your stated objection to the processing of your personal data, including in respect of an objection to receiving communications, for the sole purpose of ensuring that we can continue to respect your wishes to not contact you further, during the term of your objection.

10. Your legal rights

You have several rights in relation to your personal data under Data Protection Laws, including, the right to:

  • Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data that we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it;
  • Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data that we hold about you corrected, although we may need to verify the accuracy of the new personal data that you provide to us;
  • Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your personal data unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Please note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request for erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request;
  • Object to the processing of your personal data where we are relying on public interest or a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling public interest or legitimate interest grounds to process your personal data which override your rights and freedoms;
  • Request the restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data's accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your personal data but we need to verify whether we have overriding public interest or legitimate interest grounds to use it;
  • Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you; and
  • Withdraw your consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent. You can ask us to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by following the “unsubscribe” (or similar) links on any marketing message sent to you or by contacting us at any time. Where you opt out of receiving these marketing messages, this will not apply to personal data provided to us as a result of a purchase, product/service experience or other transactions.

If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, or require further information about any of those rights, please contact us at We will need to request specific information from you to be able to deal with your request. This is a security measure designed to ensure that your personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We will confirm the specific information required from you when you contact us. We may also contact you to ask for further information in relation to any request you make to speed up our response.

Time limit to respond
We aim to respond to all legitimate requests as soon as possible and within one calendar month of receipt. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made several requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
