Privacy Policy

ENABLE Scotland wants to protect any personal information that you give to us.

This policy is made in order to comply with Data Protection Act 1998 and to tell you how ENABLE Scotland will use any personal information that you give to us.

How do we collect information?

We get personal information about you in a number of ways. This includes (but is not limited to) if you make an enquiry about our services, fundraising, campaigns or other things that we do; if you register with us to take part in an event or competition; if make a donation; if you sign up for membership or if you apply for a job with us.

What information do we collect?

The types of personal information we might ask for may includes your name, address, gender, email address, telephone number, credit/debit card or direct debit details.

How do we use you information?

We will always ask you if you want to give us your information, and ask your permission about how we use it.

We will never share your information with a 3rd party.

With your permission, we will use the information that you give to us:

  • to send you information, products or services that you have asked for
  • to look at how we can make the information, products and services we offer to you better (including this website)
  • to contact you about events, fundraising, campaigning and our other work

We will only send you information that we have your permission for – for example, if you have made an enquiry about our services, we won’t send you information about fundraising opportunities, unless you explicitly ask us to. You will be able to opt out of receiving information from us at any time.

3rd party software

Our online donations are processed by Stripe – a leading e-commerce tool. Our newsletter subscriptions are processed by Mailchimp. We also used an online activism tool called E-Activist on the campaigns section of our website. If you any questions about these online tools, don’t hesitate to contact us.

How do we protect personal information?

We will make sure that any personal information that you give to us is kept secure, accurate and up to date, and only keep it for as long as it is needed and only for the purposes for which you have agreed we can use it. You can ask us to remove any personal information about you at any time.
