Data Protection Law is Changing

Please act now to enable us to keep sending you newsletters and updates

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Act 1998 and becomes law on 25 May 2018. It aims to strengthen and standardise data protection for all individuals within the European Union and will give people more control over how their personal data is used.  The changes will affect any fundraising activity including sending out newsletters or updates on how charities are supporting beneficiaries, as well as more specific fundraising requests.

In order to comply with best practice, we are seeking explicit opt-in consent from all our supporters to be on our mailing list for postal newsletters and, if applicable, email updates. To this end, we are asking all of our readers to complete and return the consent form available to download below. This can be sent to the charity as a hard copy in the post, or emailed to us. You can withdraw your consent at any time, simply by writing to or emailing the charity.  If you have any questions, please get in touch.

We would be most grateful if you can complete and return the consent form below to enable us to keep communicating with you about the work of Friends of Vellore.
