This privacy statement outlines the personal data we may collect about you through this website and how we may process it, as well as how our service providers might do the same. This privacy statement also tells you about the rights you have over your own information.

Collection of Personal Data

We may collect information about you directly whenever you interact with us. For example, when you contact Save A Child regarding our activities, register your interest as a paediatrician or paediatric specialist, register to join our global network, send or receive information, engage with our social media or make a donation to us, you may provide us with your personal information.


We may also receive information about you when you interact with third parties with whom we work. For example, where you’ve made a donation to us through a third-party website and given them permission to share your information with us.


We may supplement what we know about you with information that is available to the public. For example, in order to ensure that our communication with you is relevant and tailored to your background and interests, we may collect information about you from publicly-available sources either directly or through third-party subscription services or service providers. We may also carry out research using publicly available information to identify individuals who have an affinity to our cause but with whom we are not already in touch.


We may collect aggregated or anonymous information when you visit our website or interact with our content.  For example, we may collect information about the services you use and how you use them, like when you watch a video on YouTube, visit our website or view and interact with our ads and content. Please see our Cookie Policy for more detail.


The information we collect from you directly or from third parties with whom we work may include:  

  • name

  • address

  • email address

  • telephone number

  • date of birth or age to confirm you are over 18

  • medical specialty

  • clinic, hospital or other affiliation or association. 


We do not use cookies to collect this type of information.

We may also collect and process information about your interactions with us, including details about our contacts with you, through email, SMS, post, on the phone or in person (i.e., the date, time, and method of contact), details about donations you make to us, events or activities that you register for or attend and any other support you provide to us.  We may also collect and record any other relevant information you share with us about yourself. 


In order to ensure that our communication with you is relevant and tailored to your background and interests, we may supplement what we know about you with information that is available to the public.  This allows us to better understand your interests, preferences, and level of potential engagement and/or donation, so that we can contact you in the most appropriate way and to ensure that we do not send you unwanted communications.  The information we collect and process about you from publicly-available sources may include demographic information associated with your postcode or your address and an estimate of your age. We may collect this information ourselves or through third-party service providers.  


Where we have identified that you may have the capacity or affinity to support Save A Child at a higher level, we may use the information we hold about you to identify connections between you and our existing circle of key supporters.  We may review other information about you that is available to the public through internet searches, social networks, such as LinkedIn, subscription services, news archives or public databases (e.g., Companies House, the electoral, political and property registers), such as information about corporate directorships, shareholdings, published biographic information, employment and earnings, philanthropic interests and networks, charitable giving history and motivations and relevant media coverage, so that we can engage with you in a more personalised way. 


When you provide your information to us {through this website} we will only use the information for the purposes for which it is provided, for any compatible purposes and to fulfill our legal and regulatory obligations unless you agreed for your data to be used for other purposes.  We may contact you for marketing purposes by email or text message if you have agreed to be contacted in this manner. We may also send you service communications via email or text. If you have provided us with your postal address or telephone number, we may send you information about our work or other communications of the kinds described above by direct mail or contact you by telephone unless you have told us that you would prefer not to hear from us in this way.  We provide information about how you can change your marketing preferences below.


By using this site and submitting personal information through the registration process you are agreeing that we may collect, hold, process and use your information (including personal information) for the purpose of providing you with the site services and developing our business.

We use cookies to improve the performance of the site. You can find more about this in our cookie policy.

Data Storage and Transfer

Save A Child may provide your information to our service providers. Subject to your communication preferences and our internal policies and procedures, this would include providing your information to third parties that work with us to deliver on our charitable purposes[, and other entities that act as fundraisers for Save A Child or provide Save A Child with marketing information and services.


Where you have agreed to receive email or SMS marketing communications from us, we may provide your email address or mobile phone number in an encrypted format to social media companies, such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or YouTube, or to digital advertising networks that are providing services to us by displaying our advertising to you on those social media platforms and other websites, as well as identifying audiences with interests similar to yours. You can opt out of your data being used to display advertising to you by contacting us.  However, this will not prevent our advertisements being shown to you on a randomised basis or based on cookie data and may mean that you stop receiving marketing communications from us more generally.


We enter into contracts with all of these service providers that require them to comply with data protection laws and to ensure that they have appropriate controls in place to protect the security of your information. We will never sell your details.   We will only share your details with third parties (who are not service providers working at our direction) as indicated in this privacy policy or if you have consented or we have another legal basis to do so. We will not make cold telephone calls to members of the general public for individual support and, therefore, will not purchase your data in order to do so.


We may disclose your personal information if we are requested or required to do so by a regulator or law enforcement or in order to enforce or apply our rights (including in relation to our website or other applicable terms and conditions) or to protect Save A Child, for example in cases of suspected fraud or defamation, or in order to comply with any other applicable legal obligations.

Confidentiality and Security of Your Personal Data

We are committed to keeping the data you provide us secure and will always try to take appropriate physical, electronic and managerial measures to protect your personal data from loss, misuse or alteration.  We ensure that there are appropriate technical controls in place to protect your personal details. For example, we carry out regular security reviews on our network.

Although we use appropriate security measures once we have received your personal information, the transmission of information over the internet is never completely secure. We do our best to protect personal information, but we cannot guarantee the security of information transmitted to our website, so any transmission is at the user’s own risk. However, any payment card details (such as credit or debit cards) we receive on our website are passed securely to our payment processing provider according to the Payment Card Industry Security Standards.


For financial and technical reasons, we may, on occasion, need to use the services of a service provider outside the European Economic Area (EEA) – this may include a country which does not have the same level of data protection as in the United Kingdom.  However, unless they are located in a country which has been assessed by the European Commission as ensuring an adequate level of protection for personal data, we will only use a service provider outside the EEA on the basis of an agreement with the service provider, designed to protect your data, in the appropriate form approved for this purpose by the European Commission.  We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is processed securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Retention of Your Data

You can assert your rights, raise a concern, or make a complaint about how we process your personal data by contacting us.  It will assist us, if you explain your request or concern and describe the personal information you are referencing as specifically as possible.

Your rights in relation to our processing of your personal information, include:


  • Right to object to the processing of your data - you have the right to object to our processing of your personal data in certain circumstances.  If you object, please explain your objection and the reason for it. 

  • Right to have inaccurate or incomplete personal information corrected or completed - if you believe our records of your personal information are inaccurate or incomplete, you have the right to ask us to correct or complete those records.

  • Right to restrict processing – in certain circumstances, you have the right to ask us to stop making active use of the personal information that we retain in our records about you, if there is disagreement about its accuracy or legitimate usage.   

  • Right of erasure - in certain circumstances, you have the right to request that we delete your personal information from our records.

Legal Basis for Processing Personal Information 

Our Privacy and Cookie Policies take into account several laws, including:


  • the Data Protection Act 2018

  • the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003

  • General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679

Generally, our processing of your personal information as described in this policy is allowed by these laws based on one or more lawful grounds, including:


  • Where you have provided your consent to us using your personal information in a certain way. 

  • Where the processing is reasonably necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request prior to entering a contract. 

  • Where the processing is reasonably necessary to comply with a legal obligation to which we are subject.  For example, we may rely on this basis where we are obliged to share your personal information with a regulator.

  • Where the processing is reasonably necessary for the purpose of a legitimate interest pursued by us or a third party and your privacy rights do not override the legitimate interest.  Our “legitimate interests” include pursuing the aims and ideals of Save A Child through advocating and campaigning for the welfare of children, supporting access to pediatric medical care through our work in the UK and globally, and fundraising through direct marketing campaigns, emergency appeals and special events.  However, “legitimate interests” can also include your interests, such as when you have requested information from us, and those of third parties, such as our beneficiaries. Where we are relying on legitimate interests to process your personal information, we will consider any potential impact on you (positive or negative), your rights under data protection laws, and will not use your personal information for activities where the impact on you overrides the legitimate interests in the processing.
