Privacy statement

Surviving Economic Abuse (SEA) only collects and stores information that you willingly provide. We will always aim to be clear about what information we are requesting and how it will be used.

For example, when you sign up for a newsletter, donate to us or join the Experts by Experience Group, we will ask for some of your personal information. This could include your name, email address and the organisation you are affiliated with. If you are joining the Experts by Experience, we will also ask you for further information via a membership onboarding form.  

We may use this information to manage your relationship or engagement with us — this includes processing donations, following up after an event, providing you with specialist services, or sending you information about our work. We may also use this information to understand more about SEA’s audiences. 

We will never sell your details or exchange them. In some cases, your data may be shared with third parties, for example those who process a donation or facilitate an event. Data relating to the Experts by Experience Group will be kept confidential and will never be shared with any third parties. 

If you change your mind after providing your information, please contact us at [email protected]. Our data controller is our Head of Operations.

We ensure that there are appropriate technical controls in place to protect your personal details and that your details are stored securely. We also work to make sure that your data is properly protected through firewalls and monitoring.

We make sure that your data is only seen by people who need to view it for their work and that our staff are trained in protecting your information. We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity.

You have a right to ask for a copy of the information we hold about you, which may include a record of our engagement with you. If there are any discrepancies in the information we provide, please let us know and we will correct them.

If you are not happy about the way in which we are processing your personal data, please contact us at [email protected] You also have the right to make a complaint to the UK Information Commissioner’s Office.

There are limited instances in which we may be required to share your information without your permission, such as to the police or other regulatory bodies. We may be required to share your details if:

  • a court orders SEA to share information
  • there is reasonable cause to suspect that someone’s life may be in immediate danger
  • there is reasonable cause to suspect that a child or young person is being harmed or is at risk of experiencing harm
  • you have disclosed information about an act of terrorism.
