Privacy Policy

Without being able to communicate with our scholars, mentors, donors and supporters, the Longford Trust would struggle to sustain its work in prison reform. However, it is important to us that all data you give us – whether while making donations, applying for scholarships, a schools’ partnership or to become a mentor, or in booking tickets for our annual lectures, is handled in line with the principles set out in the General Data Protection Regulations of May 2018. As an organisation, we are registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office.

We Never:

  1. Share with or sell your data to any other organisations. All our mailings are managed internally.
  2. Buy in or borrow data from other organisations.

We Do:

  1. Keep data securely.
  2. Ensure those working for the trust, who have access to your data, meet the best practice standards in managing data and confidentiality.
  3. Abide by the confidentiality commitment we make on our scholarship application forms.
  4. Listen and act immediately on instructions from those who tell us they no longer want to be contacted by the Longford Trust, and/or ask us to remove their data from our database.

We Will:

  1. Use your data to communicate with you about whatever you have contacted us about in the first place – whether that be  your donation, your ticket request, your scholarship/school partnership/mentoring application.
  2. Use your data to communicate with you occasionally about the work of the Longford Trust, including our annual lectures.
  3. Delete your data from our database if your scholarship, school partnership or mentoring application is unsuccessful.
  4. Delete your data from our database if it has been submitted regarding an application for a ticket for our annual lecture, and we have not heard from you subsequently for five years renewing your consent for us to hold your data.
