Your Donation
Boost your donation by 25p of Gift Aid for every £1 you donate.

I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations it is my responsibility to pay any difference.

You submit information using these methods voluntarily and agree to the use of the personal data you provide as described in this policy.

If you give us personal information about somebody else, such as someone in your care, we will assume you have their permission to do so, and their data will also be subject to this policy.

Data collection via cookies

LOF may also collect personally identifying information using cookies. Sometimes cookies are required as part of this site’s operation. We will not collect personal data about you using cookies outside of this purpose. If you prefer not to allow the use of cookies, you can change the configuration of your browser to either warn you when you receive a cookie, or to automatically reject them. You may find, however, that disabling cookies means certain areas of the site do not function correctly.


We use information held about you in the following ways:

Information we collect about you. We will use this information:

  • to administer our site and for internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research, statistical and survey purposes;
  • to improve our site to ensure that content is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer;
  • to allow you to participate in interactive features of our service, when you choose to do so;
  • as part of our efforts to keep our site safe and secure.


You agree that we have the right to share your personal information with any member of our LOF group, which means the LOF and LOF (Lymington) Limited.

We will disclose your personal information to third parties:

  • If we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we will disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets.
  • If we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation (including but not limited to the administration of any gift aid element of any donation), or in order to enforce or apply our Terms and Conditions of use and other agreements; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of the LOF, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

Where we store your personal data

This data is not transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) in the day to day operation of LOF except that some of our electronic files are hosted on cloud storage systems including but not limited to One Drive, Dropbox, Microsoft and iCloud. Each of these companies are signed up to the EU/US Privacy Shield which ensures that an adequate level of protection is afforded to the transfer of your personal data to these companies.

All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers or those of our hosting provider.


We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

Once we are no longer legally required to retain your personal data we will retain and securely destroy your personal information.


Your duty to inform us of changes

It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes during your working relationship with us.

Your rights in connection with personal information

Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:

    • Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
    • Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
    • Request the erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no lawful reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to stop processing personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground.
    • You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for such. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data.
    • Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.

No fee usually required
You will not usually have to pay any fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances. In all other circumstances we reserve the right to charge a reasonable admin fee to comply with your access request.


In the limited circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. To withdraw your consent, please contact Louise Harfield. Once we have received notification that you havewithdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law.


Any changes we make to our privacy policy in the future will be posted on this page and, where appropriate, notified to you by e-mail. Please check back frequently to see any updates or changes to our privacy policy.


Questions, comments and requests regarding this privacy policy are welcomed and should be addressed to the Chair of Trustees.
