7. Conditions to Communicate

Communications may be made at various times by the charity to individuals by Email, Mail, Phone or Text.

If an individual requests not to be contacted, then the data will be updated to show this and that individual will be excluded from any communication except from ones required for legal, charity or contractual reasons.

Communications are made under GDPR Article 6, Part 1, Condition: B (If entering into a contract with someone and you need to use their data in order to fulfil that contract), or Condition: F (processing is necessary for the legitimate interests of the charity, so long as such interests are not overridden by the interests or rights and freedoms of the individual). When Condition: F is used, the comparison of the charity interests versus those of the individuals is referred to as the “Balancing test”. This test is documented by the Data Controller to show that the test was carried out. Because these conditions are adhered to, specific consent from individuals is not required.
