We only collect personal data that is relevant to the type of transactions or interactions you have with us.

When you contact The AMR Narrative to make a donation, or you telephone, email or write to us, or engage with us via social media channels, we may receive and retain personal information about you.

Depending on your reason for contacting us, we may collect details such as your name, postal address, country, affiliation, social media usernames, e-mail address, telephone or mobile number, and any community groups or organisations you belong to.

We may also collect payment details to process donations together with information about whether or not you are a taxpayer to enable us to claim Gift Aid. 

All personal data is stored on a secure database, which only a limited number of individuals can access. It is deleted when it is no longer relevant, is never shared with third parties, and is available to you on request at any time.

Data security

We ensure that there are appropriate controls in place to protect your personal details.  

Our online forms are always encrypted

We strictly control who has access to the personal information we hold. Our database is only accessible by approved staff

We sometimes use external companies to process personal data on our behalf. We check the security practices of these companies before we work with them and put contracts in place that set out our expectations and requirements, especially regarding how they manage the personal data they collect on our behalf or have access to.  


Sharing information with others

We will only use your information within The AMR Narrative for the purposes for which it was obtained. We will not, under any circumstances, share your personal data with any third-party organisation or sell it to them for their own marketing purposes, and you will not receive marketing communications from any other companies, charities or other organisations as a result of giving your details to us.


Legal Requests

We will comply with legal requests where disclosure is required or permitted by law (for example to government bodies for tax purposes or law enforcement agencies for the prevention and detection of crime, subject to such bodies providing us with a relevant request in writing).

Processing within the area of jurisdiction

Countries outside the European Economic Area have differing approaches to data privacy laws, and enforcement may not be as robust as it is within Europe’s borders. 

The length of time we retain your personal information

We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as it is necessary for us to carry out the relevant activity you requested and to which you consented. For example, we will keep a record of donations subject to Gift Aid for at least seven years to comply with HMRC rules. 

If you ask us to stop contacting you, we will keep a record of your request along with your details to enable us to comply with your request over time.
