We ask for your personal data whenever you directly engage with us. This may be as a donor, an online/offline shopper, a subscriber for news and magazine, a volunteer, an attendee at a TEN event, an employee, a contractor, or someone else with a stated interest in our work.

Log files – TEN uses log files in its website to track trends, views of content and user activity. This data helps TEN to develop its website to better suit visitor experience and to match your areas of interest. Be reassured that Log files are unable to identify your personal data e.g. name and address.

This data may be archived for analysis in the future.

Cookies – Cookies and local storage are industry-standard technologies that allows a website or app to store and retrieve data more efficiently on a person’s computer, mobile phone or other device.

We recommend that cookies and local storage remain turned on to take full advantage of our website.

Information from public sources:

We may combine information you provide to us with information available from public sources or records in order to gain a better understanding of our supporters and those who engage with us. This helps us to improve our fundraising methods, resources and programmes. Such information may be found in places such as Companies House and information that has been published online and in print.

Sensitive/special categories of data

Data Protection law recognises that certain categories of personal data are more sensitive. This is known as sensitive personal data or special categories of data and covers health information, race and ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs and political opinions amongst other things. We do not collect sensitive personal data about you unless there is a clear reason for doing so, such as involvement in an event where we need this data to ensure safeguarding, to carry out appropriate checks on volunteers, or care for participants. For some events we will collect health information so that leaders on our events have the relevant information to care for participants.

When we collect this information, we will make it clear to you what we are collecting and why and what are our legitimate interests or other legal grounds for processing this information.

Under 16s

TEN does not hold personal data for children below the age of 16 years.

How do we use personal data?

TEN is extremely careful with the collection, storage and processing of personal data you provide. We use it for the following purposes:

  • To keep you informed about the work of TEN
  • To inform you of relevant events organised by TEN
  • To process your purchase of gifts from our online shop
  • To provide you with a receipt and acknowledgement of donations
  • To keep a record for any lawful purpose

TEN will always provide a way for you to be removed from our mailing lists by the magazine Response Slip, email unsubscribe option or when you ask us to do so directly.

TEN never sells, rents or leases personal data. Nor do we exchange any personal data with other organisations.

TEN never publishes the personal data of its supporters to others.

What is our lawful basis for processing data?

We rely on a variety of lawful bases for processing data depending on the purpose of the activity being undertaken.

We ask for your personal data whenever you directly engage with us. This may be as a donor, an online/offline shopper, a subscriber for news and magazine, a volunteer, an attendee at a TEN event, an employee, a contractor, or someone else with a stated interest in our work.

We use a contractual basis for processing data relating to online and offline shopping.

We rely on legitimate interests for a variety of purposes. Legitimate interest is about balancing the interests of TEN against your rights and freedoms and having due regard to your reasonable expectations about the use of your data. These purposes include:

  • mailing you information related to your subscription to news and our magazine, and about related resources and events that you might be interested in, given your previous purchases and attendance
  • thanking those of you who have made a financial gift
  • sharing with you by mail or telephone the fundraising needs of the charity and to ask for your support; you can alter your communication preferences at any time.

We rely on consent for all email marketing communications such as newsletters and fundraising appeals; every email newsletter you receive provides a clear opportunity for you to opt out or alter your communication preferences.

We use compliance with a legal obligation as the basis for processing any legally required activities such as Gift Aid returns to HMRC.

Who has access to your personal data and how do we keep it safe?

TEN is committed to keeping your personal data safe by only using secure, world-class, cloud-based solutions.

All staff and volunteers are fully briefed on TEN’s data protection policies and procedures relevant to their role. Staff only have access to data that they need to be able to carry out their duties.


Where you or we have provided a password enabling you to access parts of our websites or use our services, it is your responsibility to keep this password confidential. Please don’t share your password with anyone. If you think anyone else has gained access to your password, please let us know as soon as possible.

Transferring your information outside of Europe

Although most of the data we store and process stays within the UK, some data may be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA).

This may occur if, for example, one of our supplier’s servers on which personal data is stored is located in a country outside the EU or if we use a cloud IT platform where data is dispersed between a number of different servers. These countries may not have similar data protection laws to the UK. However, we will ensure that your privacy continues to be protected as outlined in this privacy notice and in accordance with our legal obligations under applicable data protection legislation.

By submitting your personal data to us you agree to this transfer, storing or processing at a location outside the EEA.

Payment by credit or debit card

If you use your credit or debit card to donate to us, buy something or pay online or over the phone, we will ensure that this is done securely and in accordance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard through compliant online virtual terminals managed by  PayaCharity or PayPal. Find out more information about PCI DSS standards by visiting their website at

Only those staff authorised to process payments will be able to see your card details. Once your transaction is completed, we will not store your full credit or debit card details.

(A PCI DSS compliant online virtual terminal)

Sharing your information

TEN does not sell or share any data about you to other organisations.

TEN may disclose your personal data only in the following circumstances:

  • To third parties who provide a service to us and are our data processors. We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and email, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analysing data (including wealth screening), providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. These data processors have access to personal data needed to perform their functions but may not use it for other purposes. We require these third parties to comply strictly with our instructions and data protection laws and will make sure that appropriate controls are in place.
  • Where we are under a duty to disclose your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation (for example to government bodies and law enforcement agencies), or in order to enforce or apply our rights (including in relation to our website or other applicable terms and conditions) or to protect TEN (for example in cases of suspected fraud or defamation).

How long do we keep your personal data for?

We have a retention policy for every personal data set. We will hold your personal data on our systems for as long as is needed to fulfil the purpose for which we hold the data or as long as is required by law for the relevant activity. For example, HMRC requires us to keep a record of donations, Gift Aid and financial transactions for seven years.

If you request that we stop sending you marketing or fundraising information, we will keep a record of your contact details and appropriate information to enable us to comply with your request not to be contacted by us.

Where your data is no longer required we will ensure that it is disposed of in a secure manner.

What are you rights and how can you exercise them?

The Data Protection Act and the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation give you certain rights over your data and how we use it. You have the following rights:

  • Informed – this privacy notice
  • Access – you may request a copy of the data we hold about you and details of the purposes for which we process your data (known as a subject access request)

  • Data portability – obtain a portable copy of certain personal data where this is processed automatically

To change your communications preferences, you may find it easier to use the unsubscribe link in the emails we send, or the response slip when we send information by post.
