How we look after your personal information

Dorset Advocacy is all about upholding individuals’ rights and privacy – and that means we take the safety of your personal information very seriously.

If you come to us for advocacy support, volunteer, or take part in one of our projects, we will tell you why and how we will keep your information, for how long, and how you can check that we are using your information properly.  You can find links to our full client privacy notice, and an Easy Read version below:

Likewise, if you donate to Dorset Advocacy, we want to make sure that you get all the communications that you want from us – and none that you don’t.  We will make sure we have your permission to send you news or mailings; and if you ever end that permission, we will destroy or return any personal information we hold about you within one week.

For more information, see our full Supporter Privacy Notice, below:

If you are ever unhappy about the way we use your information, or would like a copy of our full Data Protection Policy, please contact our Admin Manager via or phone 01305 251033.

If you want to take your complaint to an independent body, you can contact the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
