We will not sell or share your information with third parties for marketing purposes. We will only disclose your information to third parties where we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime. Only your credit or debit card details are passed to third party processors working on our behalf to process donations and shop orders. They specialise in secure processing of these transactions.

Third party product providers we work in association with:
We work closely with various third party product providers e.g. people who make and sell products in support of JET, companies who organise fundraising events and we advertise and have links to them from our website. When you enquire about or purchase one or more of these products direct from these third party product providers, they will use your details to provide you with information and carry out their obligations arising from any contracts you have entered into with them. They will be acting as a data controller of your information and therefore we advise you to read their Privacy Policy.  These third party product providers may share your information with us under a data sharing agreement. We will use your data in accordance with this privacy notice.


The data that we collect from you will be stored securely on our network with servers located within the EU. Personal information relating to signing up as a volunteer, donations and shop orders will be stored on our database. These servers are located in the USA but our supplier adheres to the EU-US Privacy Shield principles. The European Commission has adopted this as a replacement for the Safe Harbor mechanism. Payment details may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for one of our suppliers (PayPal and Blackbaud).

You don’t have to disclose any information to browse our website. However, if you do choose to withhold requested information, we may not be able to provide you with certain services, such as ordering goods from our shop, processing a donation or sending you communications you have requested. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy notice.

All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.


We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.


We will not contact you for marketing purposes by email, phone or text message unless you have given your prior consent. We will not contact you for marketing purposes by post if you have indicated that you do not wish to be contacted. You can change your marketing preferences at any time by contacting us by email: or telephone on 0300 123 3044 or by writing to:
