This statement relates to the various contact types associated with the Small Charities Coalition, including members, individual contacts of members, supporters, mentors and mentees.
1. What personal data we collect
The Small Charities Coalition is a membership organisation and as a result, we collect details about your charity when it registers as a member. In addition, we also ask for some basic personal information from you as an individual, in the following situations:
As the contact of the small charity you are registering as a member.
If you sign up as a supporter of the Small Charities Coalition.
If you sign up to become a mentor for the Small Charities Coalition.
This information will include your full name, job title, email address and phone number. We also may ask for some non-personal data (e.g. how you heard about the Small Charities Coalition or the services you are interested in).
You are responsible for making sure you give us accurate and up to date information. If you provide information on behalf of another person, you will need to tell them how to find this privacy statement and make sure they agree to us using their information for the purposes set out in it.
We will also collect personal data when you access the services we offer. Depending on the service you use, the way we collect data is including but not limited to the following:
Downloadable resources – name and email address.
Support line – name, email address, organisation, job title and query details.
Event sign up – name, email address, job title, organisation, location, photograph consent for all events and payment details for paid events only.
Mentee sign-up – name, email address, job title, organisation and query details.
Online feedback or research surveys – name, organisation and email address.
In all instances where we collect the data from individuals it’s in order to deliver our charitable services.
2. How we use your personal data
We use your personal information to manage your membership account on our customer relationship management system and/or to provide the services you have requested from us. We never share your information with third parties, unless it is necessary to deliver the service you have requested from us. Primary examples of this include, but are not limited, to:
Sharing data with our event venues for security and safety purposes, or to ensure our accessibility obligations are met.
Sharing data with our external event staff or volunteers, including our trainers.
Sharing data with your mentor if you have signed up for the mentoring programme.
Sharing your data with an expert referral partner if you have contacted our support line.
We never share your information with third parties for marketing purposes without asking for specific, unambiguous consent. For example, some of our events are delivered alongside a relevant partner (e.g. community voluntary service organisations). On some occasions, we might ask you if we can share those details with the partner. This will be very clear on the event sign up form. If in any case, this consent is not received then your data will not be shared.
From time-to-time, we may use your feedback and attribute it to you (e.g. by quoting a name and organisation alongside the feedback). We take this information from the surveys you are asked to complete and we do so to talk about our services publicly or demonstrate the impact of the charity to key stakeholders e.g. funders. We never share your information without asking for specific, unambiguous consent. This will be very clear on the relevant forms you complete. If in any case, this consent is not received then your data will not be shared.
3. Member communications

Cookie Use Policy
1. What are cookies
A cookie is a small piece of data or message that is sent from a website’s server to your web browser and is then stored on your hard drive. They’re generally used to improve your user experience by – for example – remembering what’s in your online shopping basket or keeping you logged in on a website as you navigate from one page to another. Cookies can’t read data off your hard drive or other cookie files, and do not damage your system.
2.1 First party cookies
A list of the first party cookies we use can be found here.
2.2 Third party cookies
We only use essential third party cookies to process – for example – your membership registration or process a payment you have made. Without them you would simply lose information from one page to the next.
We also use social media (e.g. Twitter, Facebook, YouTube) and their buttons to connect with/to their websites, so read their cookie use policy to check what information they’re collecting on you too.
A list of the third party cookies we use can be found here.
2.3 Email marketing
Our email marketing (which includes some but not all member communications) may be trackable at an individual level, allowing us to determine, for example, opens and link clicks. This information is generally used to help assess the effectiveness of communications so that – for example – we can send you more of what you like.
3. How to change your cookies
3.1 First party
Your web browser settings allow you to refuse any cookie or to alert you to when a cookie is being sent. They also allow you to control cookies stored on your hard drive.
3.2 Third party
The above applies but as mentioned before the only third party cookies we use are essential to complete certain tasks, therefore if you disable them, the thing you’re trying to do won’t work. If this happens call us on 0207 391 4812 and we’ll do what needs doing over the phone, therefore avoiding cookies altogether.
3.3 Email marketing
Again these are pretty essential so if you wish to disable tracking then please unsubscribe from our mailing list. This can be done by either unsubscribing at the bottom of your most recent email sent from us, or by calling us on 0207 931 4812, but please note, unsubscribing from ANY SCC communication will prevent any future communications being sent to that email address.
4. What cookies we use
Please note: if you change your cookie settings, some of the features on our site may not work as well as we intend.
