We ask for your postcode so that we can track where our online audience is from in order to ensure that we are reaching a wide range of people, and are fulfilling our audience development objectives.  It is for research purposes only, and will not be used in order to send you unsolicited mail.

If you opted to donate to tutti frutti through clicking on any of the donation links on our website, you will be transferred to our page on the Golden Giving website, which securely processes your donation on our behalf.  They will share any personal data entered through their website with tutti frutti whilst processing the donation, according to your specified donation preferences.  If as part of this process you have opted to receive information from tutti frutti, you will be subscribed onto our email list and receive future communications from us as outlined above.  We would also like to contact you to thank you for your kind donation, but only if you have given us permission to contact you.

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter or submit your personal details. We protect all the personal information we collect. Our computer network is protected.

We will never share your personal information with any third parties for marketing purposes. We will never sell, rent or trade your personal information.

To fulfil our contract with you it’s sometimes necessary for third party providers to have access to your data so that they can perform services on our behalf (for example, we use Mailchimp and Survey Monkey to send out email information), or the police or a regulatory or government authority investigating illegal activities. Sometimes we use Dropbox to store specific data, only core team members and relevant parties have access to the company Dropbox. The only personal information saved in dropbox belongs to those working for the company.

We’ll only keep information for as long as is reasonably necessary for the purposes set out in this notice and to fulfil our legal obligations. We’ll never keep more information than we need.

Some of the services on offer on our website use servers that are located outside the European Economic Area (EEA), this means that the personal information you provide could be transferred to countries outside the EEA, for example we may transfer your data to the USA via organisations such as Mailchimp. If your personal information is transferred outside of the EEA in this way, we will take steps to ensure that your privacy rights are protected as outlined here.

Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of the data you transmit to our site as no transmission over the internet is 100% secure; any transmission of your data to us is therefore at your own risk.
