Why we collect your data

Dream a Dream UK respects your right to privacy.

We hold limited personal information, specifically your name; an email address and postal address (if you have given us a donation). We are legally bound by the General Data Protection Regulations 2018 to ensure that such information is only used for the purpose for which it was requested; to which you have freely given consent and also to ensure that the data is held securely.

  • We maintain a list of donors who give monthly or have donated in this financial year so we can report our income to the relevant authorities.
  • We want to claim gift aid on a person’s donations and keep their information up to date.
  • We want to maintain a list of people who have donated to us before so that we can contact them to ask them to do so again
  • We want to maintain a list of people who have told us they are interested in our work and use this list to send them newsletters; invite them to events; contact them and ask them to donate for the first time
  • We are required to maintain a list of people who have explicitly told us that they don’t want to contact us again (this is called a suppression list).
