We may process personal data when we need to do this to fulfil a condition of our grant funding (for example, if you have applied for a grant from us or if we are evaluating the impact of the work our grant funding has supported), where you are a trustee, an employee or a contractor (to manage the relationship) or where we are required to do this by law or other regulations. When we share data with external evaluators or provide reports to our funders (as we are required to do under our conditions of grant), the information will be anonymised. Your personal data is not shared.
