We are committed to protecting any personal data you provide about individuals within your organisation. This statement explains how we do that. It sets out what we do with your personal data, how we protect it, and explains your pertinent privacy rights. We collect and use your personal data as data controller to enable us to conduct our relationship with you and to comply with the law. The Foundation that you make your application to is the Data Controller. The basis we rely upon for lawfully collecting and using your personal data will depend on the purposes for which we are processing your personal data and these are either pursuant to a contract i.e. (i) administering your application; (ii) legitimate interests and/or (iii) legal obligations.

For us to process enquiries/applications for funding, we must process the personal data that supports your enquiry/application. This is to facilitate Foundation representatives in their assessment of applications, associated due diligence and to administer, monitor and evaluate grants made. We will only process your personal data for the purposes for which it was collected or to meet our legal obligations. We will never transfer more personal data than is necessary to discharge our legal obligations.
