If you provide us with any personal data while using our websites we may use it to provide you with any information or services you have requested.

We may use publicly available information such as newspaper articles, or information you have given permission to other organisations to share such as LinkedIn, to identify individuals who have expressed an interest in supporting charities like Biblical Frameworks.
If you make a major gift to our work, and where you agree to such a relationship with us, you will be given a Biblical Frameworks contact who will discuss and agree with you any sensitivities you may have about the personal data we hold and the methods of contact suitable for you. We will do this at the earliest convenient opportunity. Where you do not wish to pursue such a relationship with us, we will not retain any additional publicly sourced personal data about you we have used for this purpose.
If you have purchased our resources, requested samples, made a donation or joined our membership scheme we will hold the personal data you have provided on the basis we have a legitimate interest to do so.
We may contact you by email if you have given us your consent to do so or if you have purchased resources from us unless you have told us not to send further marketing information.

We will keep your personal information only for as long as we consider it necessary to carry out each activity.
We have a data retention policy to implement this. We take account of legal obligations and accounting and tax considerations as well as considering what would be reasonable for the activity concerned.
For example, we will retain details of donations for 7 years to meet tax and accounting requirements.
If you have any questions about our Data Retention Policy please contact our Data Protection Officer, Ken Wright by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We ensure that we have appropriate technical controls in place to protect all the personal data you provide. Our network is robustly protected from unauthorized access and is routinely monitored.
We ensure that access to personal data is restricted only to those whose roles require such access and that suitable training is provided.
However, we need to remind you that despite all our efforts, the Internet cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and that you submit data at your own risk.
We use Paypal to process donations or purchases using cards and Paypal will process your information in line with the GDPR and the Payment Card Industry Data Standard.
We do not store your debit or credit card details once your transaction has completed. All card details are securely destroyed once your donation or payment has completed.
We hold bank account details for the purpose of collecting direct debits in accordance with direct debit mandate rules.
We use cloud-based systems to process data and therefore data may be processed outside of the European Economic Area (EEA).

By submitting your personal data you agree to this transfer, storing and processing of your information.
Should you travel overseas with us, we may share personal information with partners who deliver our work in overseas locations. For example, this may include sensitive personal data such as medical information. When we do so we will make you aware of the data being transferred and seek your consent to do so.
In line with our beliefs, we do not share or swap your information with any other charities.
We may need to pass on information if required by law or by a regulatory body. For example, a Gift Aid audit by the HMRC, or if asked for details by a law enforcement agency.
We do employ an agent to carry out the fulfillment of orders. These agents are bound by contract to protect your data and we remain responsible for their actions.
However, we may use IP address information to identify a user if we feel that there are or may be safety and/or security issues or to comply with legal requirements.
