We at Afasic take great pride in the wonderful relationships we have with our members, donors and friends, which is based on mutual trust and respect between our organisation and our supporters. With this in mind, we wanted to address a key subject of scrutiny that has been in the press recently and reassure our supporters of our stand-point on this matter.
Data Sharing and Selling
A number of charities have been accused of inappropriately sharing and selling supporter information, including contact details to other charities and organisations, some of which, it has transpired, were fraudulent companies. We at Afasic believe this to be an unacceptable use of data and wish to reassure our supporters that we never have and never will share or sell your personal information. We ensure that all information stored is for the specific use of Afasic and we comply with strict Data Protection Policies, which mean that your details will not ever be passed on to a third party.
We would also like to take this opportunity to advise that all supporters are entitled to request a copy of the information that is held on them by any charity. This is called a subject access request and this request must be acknowledged within 40 days by the organisation.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our loyal and ever-supportive donors, members and friends for their continued generosity and trust in Afasic during this review of best practice within charity fundraising.
