Privacy Policy

BBYO UK - Privacy Policy

The privacy and security of your personal information is important to us at BBYO UK & Ireland.

This privacy policy sets out how BBYO processes personal data (that is, information by which an individual can be identified) collected by us in the course of our lawful activities, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation and any subsequent legislation (‘Data Protections laws’). This policy has been put in place to protect your rights under the Data Protection laws, and it is important that you understand what we will do with your data and are happy with this. If you want to discuss any matter relating to how your data is used, please call us on 020 8202 6698 or email us at or write to us at 14 The Broadway, Stanmore, HA7 4DW. We may be required in certain instances to ask that your request for information be submitted in writing.

References to the processing of information includes the collection, use, storage and protection of data. BBYO is the ‘data controller’ for the purposes of this policy, and the policy extends to its staff, trustees, volunteers and anyone else processing data on our behalf from time to time.

BBYO is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Any personal data collected by us will only be processed in accordance with this privacy policy. We are committed to ensuring that the privacy and security of data about everyone we engage with is protected. Children of any age have the same rights over the data processed about them, although their ability to understand and to exercise these rights may vary depending on their age and capacity. We therefore ask family members to understand that our obligations are to every individual data subject separately, and to work with us accordingly. References in this policy to ‘you’ include reference to those under the age of 16 years on behalf of whom consent may have been obtained, where necessary, from someone legally responsible for them.

Organisations are permitted to process data if they have a legal basis for doing so. BBYO processes data on the basis that:

Express and informed consent has been given by the person whose data is being processed; and/or

BBYO has a legitimate interest in processing data; and/or

It is necessary in relation to a contract or agreement which the person has entered into or because the person has asked for something to be done so they can enter into a contract or agreement; and/or

There is a legal obligation on BBYO to process data.

Where BBYO is relying on solely consent as the basis for processing data, we are required to obtain your explicit consent (or that of a legally responsible person for those under 16 years of age) and you can modify or withdraw this consent at any time by notifying us in writing, although this may affect the extent to which BBYO is able to provide services to or interact with you in future.

BBYO may change this policy from time to time and any such changes will be published on our website. Notwithstanding any change to this policy, we will continue to process your personal data in accordance with your rights and our obligations in law.

This policy is effective from 30 April 2018.

What we do with the data we process?
BBYO uses the data collected to maintain accurate internal records of our engagement with supporters, volunteers, staff and others. These records facilitate our programmes and activities run in accordance with our charitable objects and the ways in which we raise funds and awareness about our work through campaigns and events. Data may be processed and viewed by the relevant staff, trustees and volunteers in the course of BBYO’s activities (all of whom work in accordance with this privacy policy) and will be retained only for as long as is reasonable and permissible in law. If you are participating in one of our overseas programmes we may need to share your data with our staff or trusted partners, including Israel Experience and the United Jewish Israel Appeal, both within and outside of the European Economic Area, but will only do so in accordance with this policy and once we are satisfied that your data will be kept private and secure to the same standard as we demand of our staff and partners in this country.

We may use your personal information to send you information about BBYO and matters relating to BBYO’s activities and campaigns which we think may be of interest to you.

In addition to those circumstances mentioned above, we will only share data with trusted third parties where necessary for us to communicate with you (such as mailing companies for postal communications or through online platforms for email campaigns or newsletters), to process payments (including through online payments platforms such as JustGiving and PayPal) from or to you, to run events or other activities, and only once we are satisfied that any such use of data will accord with our privacy policy. We will not sell or share your personal information with any other charities, businesses or marketing companies without your explicit consent except as stated above.

You, as the data subject, may request deletion of your data at any time in writing, subject to any overriding legal requirement for its retention, such as the need, where appropriate, to retain Gift Aid records for Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs or to prevent the commission of or assist in the investigation of an actual or suspected criminal offence or for the purpose of safeguarding a vulnerable person. We may keep certain data on a ‘suppression list’ so we know not to contact you or process your data in future until further notice.

Your rights in relation to your personal data
You may request details of personal information which we hold about you. Any such request must be submitted in writing and we reserve the right to seek verification of the identity of persons making such requests before we respond. A small fee may be payable if an information request is particularly onerous.

You may choose to restrict the collection or use of your personal information, but this may impact or limit the way in which BBYO is able to interact with you. You may, at any time, change your mind about what information we hold about you, or if we continue to hold it at all, subject to any legal obligation on BBYO to retain data and as stated above.

You are responsible for the accuracy of data you have provided to BBYO. If you believe that any information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete, please write to us as soon as possible. We will promptly correct any information found to be incorrect.

In the unlikely event that there is any kind of a breach of our duties and obligations under this policy or the Data Protections laws, we will take immediate steps to isolate and rectify the problem.  Should the breach be serious one (where there is a risk of, for example, discrimination, damage to reputation, financial loss or loss of confidential information) we have a duty to report that matter to the individuals affected and to the Office of the Information Commissioner.
