Privacy statement

Last updated 22nd December 2020

When we refer to ‘we’, ‘us’, ‘our’ and the ‘Foundation’ in this policy, we mean the Amir Khan Foundation, registered charity number 1158078 of Premier House, Prince Street, Bolton BL1 2NP.

Our relationship with our supporters and the public at large is of great importance to the Foundation. This policy sets out the basis by which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us.

Data Protection Statement

The Amir Khan Foundation is committed to protecting your personal information and making sure that our communications with you are secure, proportionate and targeted. This policy explains how we collect, manage and use the personal information you provide to us, whether online, via phone or in person, email, writing or any other correspondence.

Most information that we hold will have been obtained directly from you, with some from publicly available sources.

Staff who handle personal data have received relevant data protection training.

How the Amir Khan Foundation May Use Your Data

We may use your personal data for a number of purposes, including the following:

  • To provide you with information about the work and activities of the Foundation. This might include sending you publications, e-newsletters, invitations to events and details of funding or sponsorship opportunities.
  • To further our charitable objectives, including asking you to donate or otherwise help us raise funds, but always in accordance with best fundraising practice.
  • To provide you with information by email which we feel may interest you and where you have given your consent to be contacted by email. This may include requests for your support (please refer to How We May Contact You).
  • To provide you with information about our work or our activities by post where we have a legitimate interest in sending it to you. Again, this may include requests for your support.
  • To telephone you if you have provided us with your telephone number and have not registered with the Telephone Preference Service.
  • To process a donation we may receive from you and to communicate with you in regard to the donation (this could include asking you whether you would like to sign a gift-aid declaration to allow us to claim gift-aid on your donation).
  • To conduct donor research to gain a better understanding of our supporters, inform our fundraising strategy and target our communications more effectively and appropriately.
  • For internal record keeping, including the management of any feedback or complaints.
  • For administrative purposes: for example, regarding a donation you have made or an event you have registered for or attended, including security for that event.
  • For recruitment purposes.
  • Electronic tools may also be used to monitor the impact of the Foundation's communications, such as using email tracking to record when an email we sent to you has been opened.
  • We also use your data to ensure that the ways in which we communicate with you do not conflict with your chosen communication channel preferences (for example, by post, telephone or electronic means).
  • To target communications and messages to you and to identify similar groups of prospective supporters.
  • To compile briefing notes for our staff about guests in advance of meetings, dinners and other events at which supporters and potential supporters may be present.
  • When data processing is authorised by law, for example conducting due diligence before accepting a major donation. Due diligence is conducted in accordance with the Foundation’s due diligence and ethical fundraising policies.

What Personal Data Do We Collect?

We may collect personal information about you when you engage with us for a number of reasons including if you make a donation, attend one of our events, engage with our social media, enquire about our activities, sign up for our newsletter, participate in a campaign, or apply for a job with us.

This can include information such as your name, postal address, email address, phone number, age, bank details and credit/ debit card details, if relevant. When you make a donation to us, we also ask if you are a UK taxpayer and would like us to claim Gift Aid on your donation and we record this information. If you attend an event hosted by the Amir Khan Foundation or one of our partners, photographs or video may be taken. Images or video may be used in promotional materials for the charity on our website, social media channels and online and offline marketing.

In addition to your personal data, we may also ask for your preferences so that we can send you information that is tailored to your interests.

We do not usually collect ‘sensitive personal data’ from you unless there is a clear reason and we have your explicit consent to do so, or you had already made the personal data manifestly public.

Potential new supporters and donors

We may collect information on potential supporters or donors who might be interested in becoming involved or increasing their involvement with the Amir Khan Foundation. We will only source this information from publicly available sources such as national and local press, Charity Commission, Companies House and from social media sites like Facebook and LinkedIn. We will only do this where we have a legitimate interest and have carried out a legitimate interest assessment or and/or a privacy impact assessment as required (see below).

Website Users

Our web servers use cookies and collect anonymous logs during user visits to our website that provide valuable information for improving them in the future. For more information see our separate Cookies policy.

Job applicants

If you apply to work at the Amir Khan Foundation, we will only use the information you give us to process your application and to monitor recruitment statistics. If we want to disclose information to someone externally, for example, if we need a reference, we will make sure we tell you beforehand, unless we are required to disclose this information by law.

If you are unsuccessful in your job application, we may hold your personal information for up to 12 months after we’ve finished recruiting for the post you applied for. After this date we will destroy or delete your information. We may keep de-personalised statistical information about applicants to develop our recruitment processes, however no individual applicant would be identifiable from this information.

If you commence employment with the Amir Khan Foundation, your data will be processed in accordance with your employment contract and our other applicable policies.

Your Data and Third Parties

Hosting and processing arrangements

Our website and Customer Relationship Management database (Salesforce) are hosted by third party service providers and therefore any personal details you submit through them may be processed by that third-party service provider. 

We also use other third parties to process your personal details, including in the following areas:s

  • to process online payments
  • to process information associated with applications for employment or volunteering opportunities and related recruitment processes.

All third-party service providers process your personal information only on the Amir Khan Foundation’s behalf and are bound by contractual terms that are compliant with data protection law.

Data will not be disclosed to external organisations other than those acting as agents for the Amir Khan Foundation, or suppliers who manage (for example) guest lists for events; with relevant agencies such as the police or security services for ensuring screening and safety at events; with the principal or any special guest at a specific event who will be involved in thanking supporters.

The Foundation does not sell any of its data to third party organisations.

We may have to share certain information with relevant authorities upon request, for example the Charity Commission, or HM Revenue and Customs in respect of any Gift Aid claims.

Payment processing and fraud

Where submitted, your card details may be disclosed to banks or relevant financial institutions to arrange payments. In the case of a suspected fraudulent transaction, your details may be further disclosed for the sole purpose of performing further checks (for example, disclosure to a credit checking agency).

Other sharing

We may also share your personal information with your permission or if we are legally required to disclose your information in circumstances where this cannot be reasonably resisted.

How We May Contact You

By email

If possible, we would like to be able to contact you by email because we feel it is the most efficient and productive way to communicate with you.

We will contact you by email if you have given us your email address and we are emailing you to provide the services you have requested.

We may in addition contact you for marketing purposes by email if you have given us your consent to do so. This may include requests for your support through a variety of different fundraising initiatives such as requesting donations or inviting you to attend special events.

By post and telephone – where we have a legitimate interest to contact you

If you have provided us with your postal address or telephone number, we may send you direct mail or telephone you about our work and our fundraising campaigns, unless you have told us that you would prefer not to receive such information. We will carry out a legitimate interest assessment to ensure that we are satisfied that you would reasonably expect such communications from us and would not consider it to be intrusive. For example, we may want to post you an invitation to an event we think you may be interested in.

Keeping your personal data

We keep your personal data for as long as required to operate the service we are providing to you or for archival purposes and in accordance with legal requirements and tax and accounting rules. If we have not heard from you or you have not engaged with us for a period of two years and we do not need to keep your personal data for archival, legal or business reasons, we will delete or suppress your personal information. Where your information is no longer required, we will ensure it is disposed of in a secure manner.

If you have told us that you do not want to hear from us at all or by a particular channel, we will hold the minimum amount of your personal data on a suppression list to ensure we comply with your request.

Your Information Rights

Do you want us to stop contacting you?

It is your choice as to whether and how you want to receive information about us and our work, and the ways you can get involved. You have the right at any time to ask us to amend or stop using your personal information, including for marketing purposes.

You may opt out of marketing emails at any time by clicking the ‘unsubscribe’ link in our marketing emails. You can also change any of your marketing preferences at any time (including telling us that you don’t want us to contact you for marketing purposes by telephone or send you direct marketing by post) by contacting info@amirkhanfoundation.com

Do you want to request a copy of the information we hold for you? 

You have a right to request a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected or your data erased. We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made several requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated. Please provide as much information as possible about the nature of your contact with us to help us locate your records. You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

You have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority such as the Information Commissioners Office at https://ico.org.uk/.
