We also gather general information about the use of our websites, such as which pages users visit most often and which services, events or facilities are of most interest.

If you enter your contact details in one of our online registration forms, we may use this information to contact you even if you don’t "send" or "submit" the form. We will only do this to see if we can help with any problems you might be experiencing with the form or with our websites.

We may need to share your information with our service providers, associated organisations and agents for the purposes described above.

We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so. We may use your personal information to send you promotional information about third parties which we think you may find interesting if you tell us that you wish this to happen.

We will not use your personal information for marketing purposes if you have indicated that you do not wish to be contacted. You can change your marketing preferences at any time by contacting us at StC Payroll Giving, Fernleigh, Bullockstone Road, Herne CT6 7NL.

You may choose to restrict the collection or use of your personal information in the following ways:

  • whenever you are asked to fill in a form on the website, look for the box that you can click to indicate that you want the information to be used by charities for direct marketing purposes
  • if you have previously agreed to the charities using your personal information for direct marketing purposes, you may change your mind at any time by writing to or emailing us at queries@stcpayrollgiving.co.uk.

How do we protect personal information?

All of our online forms are protected by encryption. We also use a secure server when you make a donation via our websites. We take appropriate measures to ensure that the personal information disclosed to us is kept secure, accurate and up to date and kept only for so long as is necessary for the purposes for which it is used.

Will we disclose the information we collect to outside parties?

As indicated above, we may pass your information to our service providers, agents and associated organisations for the purpose of completing tasks and providing services to you. Where we use service providers we will make sure there are appropriate controls in place.
