About our charity products

We also verify and collect personal data by contacting the charities directly or through trusted partners that we hold contracts with.

How your personal information is used?
 
Personal information is published in CF and T3K so that it may be used by a select group of relevant organisations who work in or closely with charities, namely:
 
1.   individuals at charities who want to benchmark their performance and identify new advisers to work with;
2.   professional advisers to charities, including analysts and business development managers at investment managers, investment consultants, and auditors who subscribe to our products. These advisers use our services to access historic trends, benchmark financial performance and identify the individuals responsible at the charity to enable them to better service charities and offer relevant products and services that aim to improve their performance; and
3.   service providers such as media providers who wish to send you relevant charity related content
 
Wilmington Publishing & Information Ltd reviews any potential new client to CF to ensure that their services are highly relevant to charities.
 
How long do we keep your personal information for?
 
Personal information published in CF and T3K
We verify all personal data connected to a charity on an annual rolling basis and we do not publish information that falls out of this verification cycle. However, as we update from a variety of sources we allow some flexibility for situations where an annual report has been published outside of the usual 12-month cycle, for example. For more information on how we store and use this information, read our FAQs.
 
Recipients of Charity Financial Insider newsletter, Spotlight reports and webinars
We will keep the details of anyone who has signed up to one of our free services for up to 3 years. During this time, we will contact all individuals by e-mail to ensure that details are correct.
 
Customers
If you are an existing or lapsed customer, we will keep your personal data for 7 years after the expiry of any contract you have with us for auditing and compliance purposes.
