This website is owned and operated by Opportunity International. We recognise that visitors to our site may be concerned about the information they provide to us, and how we treat that information.
At Opportunity International, we value your support and we are committed to protecting your privacy. The purpose of this statement is to share with you our policy concerning your privacy.
Opportunity International uses its best efforts to respect the privacy of its online visitors. At our site, we do not collect personally identifiable information from individuals unless they provide it to us voluntarily and knowingly.
Opportunity International UK (Opportunity) is a not-for-profit organisation, registered charity number 1107713.
Does Opportunity automatically collect my information via this website? Opportunity International UK’s website does not automatically capture or store personal information.
What does Opportunity do with my information when I volunteer it? You will be asked for personal information if you want to take advantage of specific services we offer such as subscription to our newsletter. If you indicate that you are interested in receiving regular information about Opportunity’s work, we will send you communications regarding our work and activities, either electronically or otherwise. In addition, we may send you direct mail that we feel may be of interest to you.
When you are on this website and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with Opportunity International UK alone unless stated otherwise. For example, when you are using our secure online donation pages you are going through to the CAF (Charities Aid Foundation) site and this is made clear on the donation page.
What other information do you collect about supporters?
We might obtain personal data about individuals who we hope may be interested in giving a major gift to Opportunity International. In this scenario, we may seek to find out more about these individuals, their interests and motivations for giving. The information will be collected from publicly available sources, for example media coverage, open postings on social media sites such as LinkedIn, and data from Companies House. Opportunity International will not retain publicly available data relating to major donors without their consent, which will be sought at the earliest practical opportunity. Where we decide not to make contact, we will delete all personal data obtained, other than basic contact details, to which we will apply a suppression flag to ensure we do not make contact in the future.
With whom does Opportunity International UK share my information?
As a general rule, Opportunity will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information, except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it. When you are using our secure online donation pages you are going through to a partner company and the information you give such as your credit card number and contact information is provided so that the transaction can take place.
Opportunity does not sell or rent user information to anyone. From time to time, we agree with other likeminded organisations to write to some of each other’s supporters, for the mutual benefit of both. Our supporters are given the opportunity to opt in to this arrangement.
How do I opt out of further correspondence?
We regularly maintain contact with all our supporters who are considered to have ‘legitimate interest’ in our work. These supporters are:
- Regular givers (eg Direct Debits, Standing order, Payroll givers etc).
- Those who have given in the last 24 months (based on NCVO guidelines).
- Those who have requested to receive information.
- Those signed up to attend future events.
- Those who have been actively engaged in one-to-one dialogue with a relationship manager. They do not receive unsolicited communication (eg marketing materials) unless requested.
- Those offering services and advice (eg media partners)
- Trust, Foundations and Corporates with whom we have business to business relationships.
- Former OIUK Trustees.
If you do not wish to receive any further information about Opportunity International or want to change your communication preferences, please contact us directly and we will update how we communicate with you.
How do I find out what information you hold on me?
It is our policy to give access to our supporters to the information we hold on them. You may access your information at any time. If you would like to know what information we are in possession of please contact: [email protected]
If you discover your information is incorrect, incomplete or out of date please notify us and we will try to correct or add the information as soon as possible.
