Joel Community Services subscribes to the principles of data protection legislation as required in the United Kingdom. When you visit our website and we ask you for personal information, you are sharing that information only with Joel Community Services for the express purpose of fulfilling your requests. It may be necessary to make your personal data known to Joel Community Services staff in order to do this, but we never disclose, rent or sell any of your personally identifiable information to others, unless we have your full permission, or there is a legal requirement for us to do so.
The only exception to this is when you are using our secure online pages to give Joel Community Services a gift. In order for such transactions to be completed, information like your credit card number and contact details is required by the company processing your payment. We always show you when you are being transferred to another site, and credit card transactions are always processed via a secure website. For example, you are passed to the secure Just Giving or Paypal site when giving a gift online, and it is made clear on the ‘How you can help' page when you are being transferred.
Joel Community Services may provide links to third party websites. Our policy cannot cover such links and we cannot be held responsible for the use of any personal information (including cookies) which you give voluntarily to such third parties, or which they may collect from you (using cookies or otherwise) during your visit to pages on their website. You are advised to refer to their respective privacy policies for details about their use of your personal information.
Once we receive information from you, we do everything we can to make sure that it is secure on our system. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed 100% secure. Because of this, Joel Community Services cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
