Privacy Policy

We're committed to respecting your privacy and keeping your personal information safe. This privacy policy tells you what to expect when the RSPCA Sussex East and Hastings Branch collects personal information.

How we may use your information

We will not rent, swap or sell your personal information to other organisations for them to use in their own marketing activities.

The legal basis that we rely on for processing your data will depend upon the circumstances in which it is being collected and used, but will in most cases fall into one of the following categories:
  • where you have provided your consent to allow us to use your data in a certain way
  • where the processing is necessary to carry out for the performance of a contract with you
  • where the processing is necessary in order for us to comply with a legal obligation; or
  • where it is in our legitimate interests to perform our functions, for example, processing donations or sending you administrative communications where our legitimate interest is to raise funds and to deliver our charitable purposes

Legal requirements

We may disclose your personal/sensitive personal information when required to by law, for example, to HMRC for tax purposes or to police forces for the prevention or detection of crime. Further, we safeguard the sharing of such information by using formalised information sharing agreements with organisations where appropriate, or on an ad hoc basis after ensuring the request and disclosure are legally compliant.
When we conduct prosecutions, we may publish the identity of the defendant in court alerts and press statements.

Data research and accuracy

On occasion we may also use your personal information for research purposes so that we can improve our services and better meet the needs of our beneficiaries. This may include us contacting you to see if you would like to become involved in one of our research projects. We also feature case studies on our website and materials about the amazing work that our supporters undertake for us. In both instances we will always obtain your prior consent before using your data in these ways.
We continually strive to improve the quality and accuracy of the information you have provided, such as your contact details, by checking against external data lists such as the Post Office’s National Change of Address database & The National Deceased Register. This helps us ensure our records are fully up-to-date and to avoid mis-directing communications.

Other ways we may use your information:

Our donors and supporters

If you wish to support us by making a donation, registering to fundraise for us or joining our sponsorship scheme, we will collect your name and contact details as a minimum.
Where appropriate, we may also ask for your date of birth and your motivation or personal experience for supporting us. We will use the information you provide to give you the services, products or information you asked for, tailor communications to you, to administer your donation including processing gift aid, to send you a thank you letter, to support your fundraising or manage your marketing preferences.
We may also send you administrative communications, for example confirming a direct debit instruction when you have made a donation to us.

Our members

If you are a member of the RSPCA we need to hold your personal information so that we can keep our register of members up to date. We will communicate with you about your RSPCA membership and provide you with information in accordance with our governing documents.
When applying to become a member of the RSPCA, we may check if you have any affiliations to groups that you may have that oppose or seek to undermine the RSPCA’s aims.

Marketing communications

Where you give us your consent, we will also use your personal data in order to send you marketing and fundraising communications in connection with the following marketing and fundraising activities and services:

Supporter updates - including our newsletters and other publications informing you about our work

Appeals and fundraising activities - including information about how you can leave us a gift in your will, how you can raise money on our behalf or attend or take part in a fundraising event.

Volunteering - information about how you can help support our work by giving up your time or using your influence to progress our aims, along with updates on the impact of your work

Rehoming and adopting or fostering services - information about how you can access or take part in these services and communications.

Rehoming an animal from us

When you apply to rehome an animal from us, we'll need to share personal information such as your name, address and telephone number, to enable a home visit by one of our volunteer home-visitors.

We try to make sure that all animals are microchipped and we will share your personal information with a microchip company in case your animal goes missing. Depending on which microchip is used, this will be one of the following providers: AVID, Anibase or Petlog.

If you rehome a cat or dog from us, we will also share your personal information with MORE TH>N, our pet insurance provider, so they can offer you six weeks free pet insurance. If you take this up, MORE TH>N will contact you with an offer to extend the cover after the free period ends.

Volunteers and job applicants

If you apply for a job with us or volunteer, we'll hold the personal information you provide to process your application.

We may undertake monitoring of recruitment statistics, in line with employment and data protection law.  If we need to disclose information to a third party, we will not do so without asking you beforehand unless the disclosure is required by law. For example if we need to take up a reference, or obtain a disclosure from the Disclosure & Barring Service.

If you apply to work with us we'll only hold your data for the purposes of that application. We won't hold your personal information for any longer than is necessary for the purposes of that application.

Telling us when things change

You can help us keep our records up to date by telling us when your contact details and other personal information changes. You can also change your mind at any time about how we contact you or ask us to stop contacting you altogether.

Ginger DSH, male, 14 years old approx.Ivan is a dear and sensitive gentleman who was a stray before he came to us and looked like he had to fend for himself for some time. He would like nothing more than a cosy home to call his own, and a safe spot to snuggle down. Ivan is very shy and requires a patient owner who he could learn to trust and gain confidence. Once he is comfortable, he will really enjoy a fuss and loves being brushed. He would like a quiet home with an older family and could possibly be an indoor cat in a spacious environment. His adoption fee will be reduced as we'd rather Ivan spent his senior years in a comfortable loving home.Ivan is currently in a foster home. Please ask for details.  
Ginger and white DLH, female, 11 years old approx.Tess is a beautiful girl with a personality to match. She is looking for a fresh start in life with someone who can shower her with love, as she so deserves. She is very loveable and enjoys snuggling up on your lap for a snooze. She would be a perfect companion for someone looking for a homely cat. Her confidence has come on leaps and bounds since she came to us. When she first arrived, she was in shock initially and was very scared of the other cats around her. Although still not keen on her feline neighbours, she's realised she's safe and this has allowed her loving nature to shine through. She would therefore really benefit from a home as only pet and without young children where she can kick back and relax. Whoever adopts this gorgeous girl will be very lucky and well rewarded.
Tabby DSH, female, 1 year approx.Henrietta has come on such a long way with her confidence since she arrived at the cattery. With lots of TLC and trust building, she's gone from a scared little cat, too afraid to allow contact, to popping out of her pod to sit on your lap for a fuss (and a few cheeky treats). She's also started to explore the cattery a little, but comes back to us for a bit of rub round for reassurance. She's an amazing little character who, with a nurturing and committed owner or older family, will blossom and grow in confidence all the more. She's such a gentle cat, and with not a bad bone in her body, she's looking for someone to give her a second chance.
