Our privacy notice

This privacy notice sets out how the Triangle Trust 1949 Fund uses and protects any personal information that you give us.  We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected.

If you apply to us for a grant, have previously received a grant or are currently in receipt of a grant or a gift we will have collected your contact details including your name, job title, email address, telephone number and postal address.

If you register to receive mailings from us we will collect your name and the email address that you wish our mailings to be sent to.

What we do with the information we gather

The Triangle Trust 1949 Fund will not share your personal information with any third parties unless we are required by law to do so or a third party has been contracted by us to perform the activities referred to above on our behalf.

In all cases, we balance our legitimate interest against your rights as an individual and make sure we only use personal information in a way or for a purpose that you would reasonably expect in accordance with this Privacy Notice and that does not intrude on your privacy or expressed mailing preferences.
