How long we keep your data for and the reasons for this

We hope to develop a lifelong relationship with our donors as we rely on your support to be able to continue to care for the animals at Raystede. We need to let you know about the various ways you can support us and if in the future you decide you don't want to hear from us we need to be able to honour those wishes by keeping minimum contact details on a list so we don't contact you by accident.

Who will we share your data with?

Bank, HMRC, Third party data processors, printers and email broadcasters solely for the purpose of fulfilling your benefits.

Your kind donation helps us to rescue and care for more animals in need.

We rely on your support to save animal's lives & do the work we do.
