1. Introduction

There are three key rights that individuals have under the GDPR 2018 regulations. These are:

1. The Right to be Informed

We must provide you with information about the data processing activities we carry out. This has been provided in the below Privacy Statement.

2. The Right of Access

If you request access to your personal data, we must carry out this request within one month of receipt of this request. The information provided to you will not carry a cost, unless the request is manifestly unfounded or excessive. If we hold a large quantity of data related to your request, we may ask you to specify the information you want from us.

3. The Right to Rectification

You can have your personal data rectified if it is inaccurate or incomplete and we will act on this request within one month of receipt of this request. This may be extended to two months in instances where the request is complex.

2. How we use your information

This privacy statement tells you what to expect when Kaleidoscope Trust collects personal information. It applies to information we collect about:

  • visitors to our websites;
  • donors, supporters, and those who have chosen to be kept up to date about our work;
  • complainants, or those who make a data protection or freedom of information enquiry or complaint;
  • people who request a publication or subscribe to the newsletter;
  • job applicants and our current and former employees.

3. Visitors to our website

3.1 When someone visits www.kaleidoscopetrust.com, we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to understand more about those who are interested in our work, such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website. If we do want to collect personally identifiable information through our website, we will be up front about this. We will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it.

4. Use of cookies by Kaleidoscope Trust

  1. EU policy states that we have to let you know where cookies are used and what they are used for. Our website is hosted by WordPress and you can read their cookie policy here.
  2. Individual information about you, the site user, is not kept in any of our cookies. If you want to check, you can use your internet browser application to see cookies for a page you are on. All the main browsers have this feature, though it may be hidden in a ‘developer’ section.

5. People who donate to Kaleidoscope Trust

If you kindly donate to Kaleidoscope Trust (thank you!) or support us in other ways such as asking to be kept up to date, coming along to our events, fundraising or buying raffle tickets, this is how we will use your information:

1. Processing your donation or purchase

      • When you make a donation or other payment to Kaleidoscope Trust, we will use your payment and contact details, payment amount, date and time of payment; to process that payment and take any follow-up action needed (for example, sending a thank you letter or email).
      •   Our donations process involves a small selection of third parties depending on which platform you choose to donate to us. We chiefly use NowDonate and we may also collect donations via Beacon, The Big Give, JustGiving or Givergy, with payments processed either directly through their sites or via Stripe, PayPal or GoCardless. Please click the hyperlinks to read their individual privacy statements.
      • If you choose to include Gift Aid with a donation to us, then we will also ask for your address and UK taxpayer status as this information is required by law. You can read more about how Gift Aid works here. This information is needed for us to fulfil our obligations under tax (sections 413 to 430 Income Tax Act 2007) and charity law. Information associated with Gift Aid declarations must be retained for 7 years. This information will be shared with HMRC for tax regulation purposes and may also be shared with the Fundraising Regulator and the Charity Commission in the event of an enquiry or investigation.

2. Staying in touch to share marketing and fundraising materials with you

      • Where you have given express permission, we will stay in touch with donors to keep you up to date with information about the work your support is making possible, our news, impact, events, fundraising appeals and other ways you can get involved.
      • If you have told us you would like to receive information by email, we will send you information in this way. We currently use MailChimp to manage our newsletter and it is possible for you to opt out of receiving this at any time. You can read MailChimp’s privacy policy by clicking here.
      • If you are have submitted a large donation within the past 12 months, you may receive invites to exclusive events and you may be credited on our website or in other publications. Please advise us at the time of establishing your standing order/making your donation if you wish to opt out of this. You can also email us to ensure that your details are not used in this way.

3. You are in control of how we communicate with you, and if you’d like to change what you receive, how you receive it, or stop all communications please tell us by writing to us, emailing us on info@kaleidoscopetrust.com or calling 020 8133 6460.

4. We will keep your personal information for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which it is processed (in accordance with our internal policies). If you ask us not to contact you, we will keep information about you on our suppression list in order to avoid sending you unwanted materials in the future.

6. Requesting information if you are fundraising for us, or attending one of our events

  1. If you participate in an event that we have organised, we may ask you to provide information to make sure we can manage the event safely and efficiently. We may also ask you for details of any accessibility need which you may have, so that we ensure our event is inclusive, in line with the provisions of the Equality Act 2010.
  2. If you participate in an event organised by an external party or make a donation through a processor, like JustGiving, then your information may be passed to us by the processor. We would only use it for marketing purposes if you have given your consent for this.

7. Sharing your data with third parties

7.1 Kaleidoscope Trust will never sell or pass on personal data to a third party for their own use. On occasions, we may pass your data on to a third party who is employed as a contractor to process data on behalf of Kaleidoscope Trust. For example, we hold a number of events throughout the year and some of our supporters are invited to attend; in this case the venue in question will need to see the guest list for security purposes. In this instance, we will always have agreements and contracts in place to ensure your data is processed legally and securely and to ensure it is not held for any longer than necessary.

8. Responding to enquiries

If you contact us with a question, comment, compliment or complaint then we will keep a record of this correspondence and any associated documents so that we have the information available in the event of a follow-up, dispute or investigation.

9. Job applicants, current and former Kaleidoscope Trust employees

Kaleidoscope Trust is the data controller for the information you provide during the process unless otherwise stated. If you have any queries about the process or how we handle your information please contact us at info@kaleidoscopetrust.com.

10. What will we do with the information you provide to us?

  • All of the information you provide during the process will only be used for the purpose of progressing your application, or to fulfil legal or regulatory requirements if necessary.
  • We will not share any of the information you provide during the recruitment process with any third parties for marketing purposes, or store any of your information outside of the European Economic Area.
  • We only ask for information that is required to process your application. You don’t have to provide what we ask for, but it may affect your application if you don’t.
