When a supporter donates, we ask them if they would like receive communications from Localgiving or the charity they are donating to. In the past, this has been an opt-out option which is not compliant with new GDPR regulations coming into affect on the 25th May 2018.
This has changed to an opt-in response, when donating supporters are asked to tick boxes if the following statements are true:
- I would like to share my information with the charity.
- I would like to receive updates from Localgiving.
To ensure the contact information provided to our charity members is accurate, we will be removing all non-compliant data from the accounts and reports before the 25th of May 2018.
