Privacy Policy

What this privacy and cookie policy covers

Keepthebeat is committed to protecting your personal information and being transparent about what information we hold, whether you are a donor, volunteer, shopper or campaigner.

Getting a better understanding of our supporters through their personal information allows us to fundraise more efficiently, which ultimately helps us beat the heartbreak caused by children with congenital heart diseases. We have made improvements to this Policy so that transparency is at the core of what we do.

We ensure that we use your personal information in accordance with the law. This Policy explains:

  • What information Keepthebeat may collect about you;
  • How we will use that information;
  • Whether we disclose your details to anyone else;
  • Your choices regarding the information you provide to us; and
  • How we use cookies to provide services to you or to improve your use of our websites.

The Policy may change from time to time. For example, we have recently updated it to reflect new legal requirements of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (also known as the ‘GDPR’). Please visit this website section periodically in order to keep up to date with the changes in our Policy.
