Data may be processed and viewed by the relevant staff, trustees and volunteers in the course of CGI - Camp Gan Yisroel activities (all of whom work in accordance with this privacy policy) and will be retained only for as long as is reasonable, necessary and permissible in law.

We will never sell or share your personal information with any other charities, businesses or marketing companies without your explicit consent. If we share your data with colleagues or trusted partners outside of the European Union, such as our project and programme partners within the worldwide Chabad Lubavitch movement, we will only do so if we are confident that they adhere to the same high standards that we do when processing data and protecting its privacy and  security.

Where required by law or a legal obligation, we may, if necessary, share your data with the appropriate authorities, for example, to prevent the commission of an offense or to facilitate its investigation, or to safeguard a vulnerable individual.

You, as the data subject, may change your preferences or request deletion of your data at any time in
writing, subject to any overriding legal requirement for its retention, such as the need, where appropriate, to retain Gift Aid records for Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs. We may keep such data on a ‘suppression list’ so we know not to contact you or process your data in future until further notice.

You may choose to restrict the collection or use of your personal information, but this may inhibit or
limit the way in which CGI - Camp Gan Yisroel is able to interact with you. You may, at any time, change your mind about what information we hold about you, or if we continue to hold it at all, subject to any legal obligation on CGI - Camp Gan Yisroel to retain data.
