Tomaz Mueller does not use personal data for automated decision-making, which produces legal effects or similarly significantly affects individuals. However, Tomaz Mueller may use profiling techniques in certain circumstances for the purpose of evaluating personal data to provide you with more targeted marketing and for the purpose of segmenting our database of clients and visitors so that we can communicate with you in the most relevant way possible. In some cases, we use cookies to do this. OurCookies Policy (at tomazmueller.com/cookies) explains in further detail the types of cookies we use to allow us todo this.

5) FUNDRAISING

  • Charitable giving is very important to Tomaz Mueller’s ability to achieve its mission. We may carry out a wide variety of marketing activities to seek individuals’ support for our work, ranging from appeals for small one-off donations, to large fundraising initiatives for specific projects.
  • We want to ensure that we are contacting you with tailored and appropriate communications, and ensure we direct our resources and fundraising activities as efficiently and effectively as we can.
  • We also want to communicate with you from time to time to thank you for your support and tell you what we have achieved with the help of your donation.

6) RESEARCH AND PROFILING USING INFORMATION IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN

  • In order that our fundraising is appropriate, respectful, efficient and effective, we tailor our approaches to different people in different ways. We use information you have given us, sometimes together with data we collect from publicly available sources, to help us decide how best to do this.
  • For a small number of people, we may undertake research using publicly available information relating to philanthropic activities, wealth and capacity to give, to create a profile of interests and preferences. This helps us understand the background of the people who we believe may be willing to attend events and enter a dialogue with us to learn more about supporting our work and organisation.
  • Ultimately it helps us to ensure that proactive requests for gifts are directed to only those who we believe may be able and willing to give. This information is collected from public sources such as news articles, Companies House, the Charity Commission, Who’s Who as well as specialist charity research sources.
  • Very occasionally we may work with similar organisations to undertake this research collaboratively.
  • If we do collect such information about you, whether jointly or on our own, we will inform you within one month of collecting this information in order to provide you with an opportunity to opt out of your data being used for these purposes. You can also opt out by emailing us on info@tomazmueller.com
  • We also have an obligation to ensure we are undertaking appropriate due diligence on potential donors, in accordance with guidelines set out by the Charity Commission and the Fundraising Regulator, and we may collect information from the public domain information for this purpose too.

7) WHAT LAWFUL BASES DO WE RELY ON TO USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA

The legal bases that we rely on for processing your personal data are:

  • You have provided us with your consent to use your personal data for a specific purpose.
  • We will ask for your consent to use your personal data to send you marketing emails and SMS.
  • You always have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.
  • It is necessary in connection with the performance of a contract with you: Sometimes it is necessary to process your personal data so that we can enter contractual relationships with you. For example, if you purchase something from our online shop, or become a client we will require your personal data to enable us to perform our agreement.
  • It is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject: This would include where we must retain certain records, for example, to manage health and safety, for the detection and prevention of crime, safeguarding obligations, for maintaining suppression lists to ensure we comply with marketing laws, for tax reasons (such as those related to gift aid donations) and undertaking due diligence before accepting certain donations or entering certain relationships.
  • It is within our legitimate interests: Applicable law allows personal data to be collected and used if it is reasonably necessary for our legitimate interests or a third party’s legitimate interests (if the processing is fair, balanced and does not unduly impact individuals’ rights). We will rely on this ground to process your personal data when it is not practical or appropriate to ask for your consent, and where we are confident that this will not impact your rights. This may include where we undertake research on individuals including before we proactively contact them, as set out in previous Sections.
  • Our legitimate interests include raising funds for a wide range of activities to support our charitable objectives. We have a legitimate interest in publicity and income generation, campaigning and fundraising to support our charitable objectives and undertaking due diligence to establish the provenance of donations that are made, or may be made, to us.
  • Where you have provided your details to us, we may contact you by post and phone for certain marketing and fundraising activities as set out below (but we will explain this to you at the point that we collect your details). You can opt out of this activity at any time by emailing us on on info@tomazmueller.com
  • We will also rely on our legitimate interests for the proper administration of Tomaz Mueller, and to manage our operations (for example, maintaining appropriate records and databases, for the detection and prevention of crime and safeguarding all those who access our premises and facilities).
  • When we process your personal data to achieve such legitimate interests, we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative), and your rights under data protection laws.
  • We will not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you, for example where use would be excessively intrusive (unless, for instance, we are otherwise required or permitted to by law).

8) HOW WE COLLECT PERSONAL DATA

We collect information about you:
