Privacy Policy:


The privacy and security of your personal information is extremely important to us. This privacy policy explains how and why we use your personal data, to make sure you stay informed and can be confident about giving us your information.

Your personal data is in safe hands with the NTF Trust

We do: use your personal data to help us provide a great experience for you. This includes tailoring the information we share to ensure you find it relevant, useful and timely.

We do: respect your privacy and work hard to ensure we meet strict regulatory requirements.

We don’t: sell your personal data to third parties.

We’ll always protect your personal data and, as part of this, we regularly review our privacy notice so that you can see how we use your data and what your options are. If there are any further changes to the ‘General Data Protection Regulation’ (or GDPR) or related laws, we may need to amend this statement in the future.

A few quick notes:

  • This privacy policy explains what data we collect as well as how and why we use your personal data

  • The policy applies to you if you’re a supporter of the Trust (whether that’s as a member, donor, volunteer, tenant, customer or employee) or use any of our services, visit our website, use our mobile app, email, call or write to us. In certain circumstances we may also provide an extra privacy notice, which will always refer to this page

  • We’ll never sell your personal data. We will only share it with organisations we work with who meet our high privacy standards.

Fundraising, donations and gifts in wills 

Where we have your permission, we may invite you to support vital conservation work by making a donation, buying a raffle ticket, getting involved in fundraising activities or leaving a gift in your will. 

Occasionally, we may invite supporters to attend events where they can find out more about the ways donations and gifts in wills make a difference. We’ll keep a record of which events you are invited to and whether you were able to attend.

If you make a donation, we’ll use any personal information you give us to record the nature and amount of your gift, claim Gift Aid where you’ve told us you’re eligible, thank you for your gift or let you know if you have won a raffle prize. If you interact or have a conversation with us, we’ll note anything relevant and store this securely on our systems.

If you tell us you want to fund-raise to support our cause, we’ll use the personal information you give us to record your plans and contact you to support your fundraising efforts.

Charity Commission rules require us to know where funds have come from, as well as any conditions attached to them. We follow a due diligence process which involves researching the financial soundness, credibility, reputation and ethical principles of donors who’ve made, or are likely to make, a significant donation to the NTF Trust.

As part of this process we’ll carry out research using publicly available information and professional resources. 

Major gifts
