Disclosing your information
We will treat the information you give us as confidential.

However, you should be aware that the information we hold is about your organisation, and the only personal information we have on an individual would be his or her name and the position they hold in an organisation.

We would not expect you to give us any other information such as a personal telephone number or address, unless there was no other way of contacting the organisation which you represent. We may share information with other funders operating in the same areas of charitable interest, and we may also share the information you give us with other charitable organisations, public bodies, universities etc. for the purposes of research, analysis, policy development or other purpose.

Cookies
A “cookie” is a piece of software that attaches to the hard drive of your computer and remembers information about how your computer is set up. We use this information to track your movements through our website to find out how it is being used and to assess how useful it is. We do not collect personal information about you during the tracking process. We use “persistent cookies” if you have registered with us on-line. These cookies allow us to make the logging-in process easier and more secure for you. We will also use these to recognise you when you return to the site. We also use “session cookies” that will hold your information on the site until you log out.

You can get rid of the cookies that we attach if your browser allows you to do this. For more information on how to do this, please refer to www.allaboutcookies.org. However, you should bear in mind that if you choose to do this, you may not be able to use some of our on-line facilities.

Other organisations’ websites
Because we want our site to be as useful as possible, we may provide a number of links to websites operated by other organisations. We do not control these websites and these organisations may send their own cookies to you, or otherwise collect information or ask for personal information. We take no responsibility for this and we encourage you to read each organisation’s privacy policy before disclosing any personal information that can identify you.

Security
We have security measures to prevent your personal information from being accessed by unauthorised people and to prevent unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction or damage. Please help us keep our records updated by letting us know of any changes to your e-mail address and other contact details.
