- What does this policy cover?
If you wish to discuss any matter relating to how your data is used, please call us on 020 3905 6977, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or write to us at Etgar, Wohl Campus for Jewish Education, 44a Albert Road, London NW4 2SJ, marking your communication for the attention of the Data Protection Officer. We may be required in certain instances to ask that your request for information be submitted in writing.

Etgar is a registered charity (no. 1157569) and company (no. 08669613) and is the ‘data controller’ within the meaning of the Data Protections laws for the purposes of this policy, except as stated otherwise. This policy extends to Etgar’s staff, trustees, volunteers and to the extent set out below, anyone else processing data on our behalf from time to time.
- Why do we process your data?
Organisations are permitted to process personal data if they have a legal basis for doing so. Etgar processes data on the basis that:
- Express and informed consent has been given by the person whose data is being processed or, in the case of a child who is too young to provide such consent, by their parent/guardian;
- Etgar has a legitimate interest in processing the data; and/or
- It is necessary in relation to a contract, agreement or ongoing arrangement for the provision of services which someone has entered into with Etgar or because someone has asked for something to be done so they can enter into a contract, agreement or arrangement with us; and/or
- Etgar has a legal obligation to process data.
We may also process data that has been shared with us by another Data Controller, such as a school whose pupils are taking part in an Etgar activity. In such cases, Etgar may be a Data Processor within the meaning of the Data Protection laws, but will still process data in such a way as to protect its privacy and security and in accordance with the stipulations regarding its use made by the Data Controller. Where this is the case, Etgar relies on the party sharing data with us that all requisite permissions, consents or other legal bases for sharing the data have been obtained or complied with.
If and to the extent that Etgar is relying on solely consent as the basis for processing data, we are required to obtain your explicit consent and you can modify or withdraw this consent at any time by notifying us in writing, although this may affect the extent to which we are able to provide services to or interact with you in future.
We may change this policy from time to time and any such changes will be published online at www.etgar.co.uk. Notwithstanding any change to this policy, we will continue to process your personal data in accordance with your rights and our obligations in law.
This policy is effective from 1 March 2022.
B. What data do we collect?
We collect the data necessary for Etgar to pursue its stated charitable objectives of advancing the education of pupils at Jewish schools and chederim, members of youth clubs, visitors to synagogues, members of the Jewish community and any other member of the public in areas of Jewish knowledge by providing and assisting in the provision of materials (whether printed, electronic, or spoken), running programs and events, keeping our supporters informed of our activities, marketing, fundraising and the effective running of Etgar through its professional staff, trustees and volunteers. Data collected and processed may include, but not be limited to:
- Names and contact information such as telephone numbers, email and postal addresses
- Information relating to event participants necessary for us to safely and successfully run events including, but not limited to, age, which school they attend, relevant information concerning health, access or dietary requirements
- Photographic and video images which we may use for marketing and promotional purposes, including on social media, provided we have requisite permissions and/or consents
- Information relating to staff and volunteers necessary for their engagement and participation in Etgar activities including, but not limited to, payroll details and information required to ensure the safeguarding of vulnerable persons
- Stakeholder, supporter and donor records (including payment information) and preferences
- Such other information that is relevant and necessary for Etgar to carry out its activities, charitable purposes and legal obligations.
C. What we do with the data we process
You, as the data subject, may unsubscribe from any mailing list you are subscribed to, including via our website, and you may request deletion or correction of your data at any time in writing, subject to any overriding legal requirement for its retention. We may keep certain limited data on a ‘suppression list’ so we know, if requested, not to contact you or process your data in future until further notice.
D. Your rights in relation to your personal data
You may request details of personal information which we hold about you. Any such request must be submitted in writing. A small fee may be payable if an information request is particularly onerous.
You may choose to restrict the collection or use of your personal information, but this may restrict the way in which Etgar 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 requiring Etgar to retain data, such as the retention of donor or Gift Aid records for Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs or for reasons relating to the safety and welfare of young people.
You are responsible for the accuracy of data you have provided to Etgar. If you believe that any information we are holding about you is incorrect or incomplete, please write to us as soon as possible. We will promptly correct any information found to be incorrect.
