When you contact THE SIX FREEDOMS to become a member, make a donation or sign up to any of THE SIX FREEDOMS activities or online content, such as newsletters or your telephone, email or write to THE SIX FREEDOMS, or engage with THE SIX FREEDOMS via social media channels, we may receive and retain personal information about you.

By submitting your details, you enable THE SIX FREEDOMS (and where applicable any sub-contractors we may use) to raise funds and to provide you with the goods, services, information, activities or online content you select.
We do not usually ask members to provide “sensitive personal data” (such as information relating to racial or ethnic origin, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, health information and political opinions). However, if you reveal such information in emails or other communications hosted by our site, you are consenting to this sensitive personal data being collected and processed by us. If you do not wish to consent, please do not include sensitive personal data in your communications to, or through, the site.
If there is a clear reason for collecting sensitive personal data, for example, if you are participating in a marathon or similar fundraising event or where we need this to ensure that we provide appropriate facilities or support to enable you to participate in the event. Clear notices will be provided on applications for such events so that it is clear what information we need and why we need it.
If you are simply browsing the site as an anonymous visitor, THE SIX FREEDOMS may still collect certain information from you, such as your IP addresses (an IP address is a number that can uniquely identify a specific computer or other network devices on the internet).
If you enter your contact details in one of our online 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 combine the information we collect about you and the information you give to us with information we receive from other sources.
