Information we may collect from you
We may collect and process the following data about you:
- Information that you provide by filling in forms on our site www.ashworthtrust.org (the “Site”).
- If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence.
- Details of your visits to the Site including, but not limited to, your location data.
We anticipate that you will not be providing us with sensitive personal data (such as health information by which an individual can be identified) by filling in forms on our Site, but in the event that you do decide to provide us with sensitive personal data on behalf of, or for the benefit of, someone else, you warrant to us that you have received appropriate consent of that person and you provide that sensitive personal data at your own risk. If you are submitting any personal data about any person under the age of thirteen, you warrant to us that you have obtained parental consent regarding the discourse of this information.
IP addresses and cookies
We may collect information about your computer, including, where available, your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration. This is statistical data about our users' browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.
Where we store your personal data
The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for one of our suppliers. Such staff may be engaged in, among other things, the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the Site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

We may disclose your personal information to our third party suppliers who provide us with services.
We may also disclose your personal information to third parties:
- In the event that we are taken over or are absorbed into another charity, in which case we may disclose your personal data to the prospective individual or organisation taking over the day to day running and/or management of the charity.
- In the eventuality set out above, if we or substantially all of our assets are acquired by a third party, the personal data that we hold about our applicants and funding recipients will be an asset that is transferred to the third party.
- If we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply agreements; or to protect the rights, property, or our safety, the safety of our staff, applicants, funding recipients, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
