Privacy statement

CUP Foundation – Jo’s friends is committed to protecting the privacy of the personal information of those we interact with in accordance with the prevailing UK law. On 25 May 2018 the 1998 Data Protection Act governing the handling of data was superseded by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This now governs how we collect and use your personal data and how we contact you.

The most important thing to say is that your personal data will never be shared with third party organisations or individuals. We will use your personal data for the reason we originally collected it and in ways you would expect: to provide you with the services or information you have requested and for administration of those purposes.

In general, what information we collect depends on the reason for collecting it. For example, if you have registered to receive our eNewsletter (eMail address), or you ask us to sell you our Christmas cards and have provided your postal address.

What we may do

CUP Foundation – Jo’s friends may collect personal information such as your name, contact information, and demographic information when you contact us to process your requests in connection with:

• providing you with our newsletter and other information (eg conference details) by email or other means
• sales of our goods (eg Christmas cards, lapel badges and wristbands)
• providing a personalised service if you ‘contact us’
• maintaining accounts and records

If you have previously agreed to us using your personal information (eg by opting in to our eNews) you may change your mind at any time. You can unsubscribe to our eNews by clicking on the link on a copy of the eNews or by eMailing us using the ‘contact us’ page on our website.
