Our Privacy and Data Protection Values

The Shrewsbury School Foundation was established by Trust Deed in 1965, making it one of the oldest school development offices in the UK. It supports the School’s development objectives, organises events and activities and administers donations. The Foundation focuses on relationships with potential and existing donors. Both paper and computer records are kept.

The statement below provides information on how Shrewsbury School Foundation handles and uses the data it collects.

Transparency
Records are used by Shrewsbury School Foundation to organise events, to promote the School and for fundraising purposes.  These activities include publications (such as the Annual Giving Report), appeals and marketing of events. Communications may be sent by post, electronic means or by telephone. Most records contain education, contact details, and information on career and achievements. Contact and relationships with the School, and donations are also recorded. In some cases other data is added, including but not limited to information about family, financial and personal information.

Security and Controlled Data-Sharing with Partners
All information is held and transmitted securely and (in addition to disclosure as permitted or required by law) may be disclosed on a considered and confidential basis to employees of the School, Trustees of the Foundation and selected third parties who may provide services (such as for the mailing of the Annual Report). They will not store information any longer than is necessary and will not share your data.
