TERMS & CONDITIONS
Terms & Conditions
This notice explains our terms and conditions and how and why we use your personal data in order to make sure that you stay informed as well as remaining confident about giving us your information securely and with a level of trust that we will always respect. The privacy and security of your personal information is very important to us and therefore it is very important that we protect you and your use of our web site at all times.
Who are we?
The words ‘we’ ‘us’ and ‘our’ refers to the subsidiary group and groups working under a banner and brand entitled NHS-SOS, a trading name or entity of NHS-SOS (and uses it and/or other derivatives of that name).
Although at the time of reading this, NHS-SOS may not yet be a registered charity it may aim to be one at some stage where it is guided by its Executive Board and so motions of charitable procedures or procedures required by the charities commission may come into effect. When we do raise funds to make our local hospitals better for everyone in the community, we will do so by funding the extra care and equipment needed over and above that provided by the NHS.
If you have any questions in relation to this privacy notice or how we use your personal data they should be sent to NHS.firstname.lastname@example.org
Addressed your questions to us at:
Angels Agency Limited
160 City Road
What personal data might we collect?
Your personal data (ie any information which identifies you, or which can be identified as relating to you personally for example, name, address, phone number, email address) will be collected and used by us. We’ll only collect the personal data that we need.
We collect personal data in connection with specific activities such as making a donation, participating in one of our fundraisers or by volunteering or by giving information that you wish to supply. You may give us your personal data by filling in forms on our website, registering for an event, or by corresponding with us (by phone, email or by becoming a supporter or supplier or partner). This personal data you give us may include name, email address, telephone numbers and other data you wish to submit freely for us to help the cause we work for. Other examples include financial information (payment information such as credit or debit card details and whether donations are gift aided).
If you decide to donate to us, by law we have to keep records of when, and how much you give.
If you volunteer with us, including as a volunteer fundraiser, we may collect extra information about you (eg references, criminal records checks, details of emergency contacts, medical conditions etc). This information will be retained for legal or contractual reasons, to protect us and for safeguarding purposes.
How we use your personal data
We will only use your personal data on relevant lawful grounds as permitted by the EU General Data Protection Regulation (from 25 May 2018), the UK Data Protection Act and Privacy of Electronic Communication Regulation.
Personal data provided to us will be used for the purpose or purposes outlined in any fair processing notice in a transparent manner at the time of collection or registration where appropriate, in accordance with any preferences you express. If asked by the police, or any other regulatory or government authority investigating suspected illegal activities, we may need to provide your personal data.
Your personal data may be collected and used to help us deliver our charitable activities, and to help us raise funds.
Our Fundraising and Marketing Communications
Your privacy is important to us, so we will always keep your details secure. Your support matters, so we’d like to keep in touch with news from the charity. If you choose to keep in touch then we may send you news on recently funded projects, fundraising events, appeals, volunteering or membership opportunities.
We will only send you these things if you agree to receive them and we will never share your information with companies outside of NHS-SOS.
However, if you tell us you don’t want to receive marketing or fundraising communications from us, then you may not hear about events or receive information on recently funded projects that might be of interest to you.
You can choose how you would like us to get in touch with you, for example by post, email or telephone.
Where we have your permission, we may invite you to support our vital work by making a donation, getting involved in fundraising activities, leaving a gift in your will or signing up for our lottery. Occasionally we may invite some supporters to attend special events to find out more about the ways in which donations and gifts in wills can make a difference to specific appeals and to our cause. We will also send you updates on the impact that you make by supporting us in this way, unless you tell us not to.
If you make a donation, we will use any personal information you give us to record the nature and amount of your gift, claim gift aid where you have told us you are eligible and thank you for your gift. If you interact or have a conversation with us, we will note anything relevant and store this securely on our systems.
If you tell us you want to fundraise to support our cause, we will use the personal information you give us to record your plans and contact you to support your fundraising efforts.
If you’ve told us that you’re planning to, or thinking about, leaving us a gift in your will then we may use your information to give us a record of this – including the purpose of your gift, if you let us know this.
If we could decide to become a charity at any time, the Charity Commission has rules that require us to be assured of the provenance of funds and any conditions attached to them. We will follow a due diligence process which involves researching the financial soundness, credibility, reputation and ethical principles of donors who’ve made or are likely to make a significant donation to NHS-SOS.
As part of this process we’ll sometimes carry out research using publicly available information and professional resources. If this applies to you, we’ll remind you about the process when you make your donation. If you are a current or prospective major donor, we will send you a link to the charity’s privacy notice, and will supply on request further details on how we look after your data.
If you’ve agreed that we can contact you for marketing purposes, we may also gather additional information about you from external sources, for example: updates to address and contact information, or publicly available information regarding your status in general. We may use this information to assess your capacity to support us.
Updating your data and marketing preferences
We want you to remain in control of your personal data. So if at any time you want to update or amend your personal data or marketing preferences please contact us in one of the following ways:

Building profiles of supporters
Our supportive work is only made possible by the kindness of our supporters and we aim to do this as effectively as possible by targeting our resources, understanding the background of the people who support us and by making appropriate requests to donors who may be able and willing to give more than they currently do. By developing our understanding of supporters through research, using publicly available sources, we are able to tailor our communications and events. This allows us to be more efficient and cost-effective with our resources, and enables us to raise more funds and resources, more cost-effectively than we otherwise would.
What information do we collect, and how do we use it?
After taking a supporter’s preferences for communication into account, we may use publicly available information to research their potential to be a significant donor and to collect additional details relating to philanthropic activity or employment. We may also estimate their potential to give a significant donation, based on publicly available information including their history of charitable giving, how connected they are to our work and their assets.
We use existing data from our own database and publicly available information sources which might include: Press and media publications, Companies House, the charity commission, public social media accounts, organisation websites and the electoral register. This enables us to develop our understanding of someone’s potential interest and support of our work. All of these sources are publicly available where someone might expect their information to be used by the public. We only use publicly available and reputable sources and avoid any data which we believe has not been lawfully or ethically obtained.
What is the legal basis for NHS-SOS to process information about you?
In some cases, we will only use your personal information where we have your consent or because we need to use it in order to process requests or transactions. However, there are other lawful reasons that allow us to process your personal information and one of those is called ‘legitimate interest’. This means that the reason that we are processing information is because there is a legitimate interest for us to process your information to help us to achieve charitable objectives.
Whenever we process your Personal Information under the basis of ‘legitimate interest’ we will make sure that we take into account your rights and interests and we will not process your personal information if we feel that there is no reason to do so.
Some examples of where we have a legitimate interest to process your Personal Information are where we contact you about our work via email, use your personal information for data analytics, conducting research to better understand who our supporters are, improving our services, for legal purposes (for example, dealing with complaints and claims) or for complying with guidance from the Charity Commission or any other authority.
NHS-SOS is committed to giving you a choice of how your data is used and at any time you are welcome to opt out from this activity.
