How we protect your privacy.
Action for Children is committed to protecting the privacy of its supporters and stakeholders. We fully comply with the Data Protection Act 1998.
We only collect personal information when you specifically provide it to us. This may happen when you contact Action for Children, register on our website, make a donation to us or register to receive email newsletters.
Where stated we may use the personal information you provide to contact you in the future about Action for Children's work. If you do not want this to happen please tick the appropriate box where provided.
We are legally obliged by the Data Protection Act 1998 to make sure that we only use your information for the purpose for which it was requested, and to make sure it is kept securely.
We take care to make sure that the way we use your data is secure and we are constantly improving our systems and processes to make sure that your data is handled efficiently and safely.
If you have subscribed to receive email newsletters, we will use your email address to send you information. Each email will give you the opportunity to stop receiving information from Action for Children.
If you have requested information to be sent to you, we will only use the email address and postal address you provided.
Occasionally, we agree with carefully selected organisations to contact each other's supporters about our work or services. When you submit a form we will ask you if you would like to opt out of this. If a disclosure of child abuse is made, we will pass personal information to social services or the police.
If you would like at anytime to make changes to the way that we communicate to you by post, telephone or email, please contact us:
Changes made will be actioned within five working days, although due to the way that we select and use data it may take up to one calendar month for the changes to become effective.
Action for Children is committed to protecting the security of your data.

Our website is hosted using industry-approved, secure operating systems. As well as physical security, firewalls and intrusion detection systems are in place to provide a quick response if an attack takes place.
