Frank Water funds WASH (Water, Sanitation & Hygiene) projects in India and Nepal. It works with NGO partners, based in-country, to implement water systems, build toilets and teach good hygiene practices, and to monitor and evaluate the impact of this work. In the UK, Frank Water raises funds from different sources (including individual gifts, corporate donations, events, sales of merchandise and grants made by trusts and foundations). Frank Water communicates its impact to supporters using multiple channels including printed materials, email, social media and film.

At Frank Water, our life-saving work is only made possible thanks to the generosity of our supporters – so it’s vital that our fundraising efforts are as effective as they can be. By developing a better understanding of our supporters through researching them using publicly available sources we can tailor and target our fundraising events and communications (including volunteering opportunities) to those most likely to be interested in them. This allows us to be more efficient and cost-effective with our resources, and also reduces the risk of someone receiving information that they might find irrelevant, intrusive or even distressing.
After taking a supporter’s communications preferences into account, we use information we hold on them to research their potential to be a significant donor to Frank Water and collect additional details relating to their employment and any philanthropic activity. We may also estimate their gift capacity, based on their visible assets, history of charitable giving and how connected they are to Frank Water.
We use existing data from Frank Water’s own database and combine this with information from publicly available sources such as charity websites and annual reviews, corporate websites, public social media accounts, the electoral register and Companies House in order to create a fuller understanding of someone’s interests and support of Frank Water. We only use reputable sources, where someone would expect their information may be read by the public. We avoid any data that we believe has not been lawfully or ethically obtained, and we do not use information sources which have not been broadcast or made public.
We strive to provide you with choices regarding certain personal data uses, particularly around marketing and advertising.
We may use your Identity, Contact, Technical, Usage and Profile Data to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which products, services and offers may be relevant for you (we call this marketing).
You may also receive marketing communications from us if you have signed up to receive our newsletter, bought one of our products, registered with us or donated to us online.
We will get your express opt-in consent before we share your personal data with any third party for marketing purposes.
You can ask us or third parties to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by following the opt-out links on any marketing message sent to you or by contacting us at any time using the details below.

5. Disclosures of your personal data
Frank Water shares or discloses personal data when necessary for the purposes set out in the table in paragraph 4 above. When we share personal data, we do so in accordance with applicable law. Below are the parties with whom we may share your personal data and why we share it.
Our business partners: We partner with other organisations in order to carry out our Activities. Occasionally, these arrangements may involve us sharing your personal data with the organisation in question.
Our third-party service providers: We engage third-party service providers such as event organisers in the United Kingdom and IT and website providers in the US.
Third parties for legal reasons: We will share personal data when we believe it is required, such as:
To comply with legal obligations and respond to requests from government agencies, including law enforcement and other public authorities, which may include such authorities outside your country of residence;
In the event of a merger, sale, restructure, acquisition, joint venture, assignment, transfer, or other disposition of all or any portion of our business, investments or assets (including in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceedings); and/or
To protect our rights, privacy, safety, or property, or those of other persons.
We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
6. International Transfers
Some of our external third parties are based outside the European Economic Area (EEA) so their processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the EEA. Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission. For further details, see European Commission: Adequacy of the protection of personal data in non-EU countries.
Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe. For further details, see European Commission: Model contracts for the transfer of personal data to third countries.
Where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between the Europe and the US. For further details, see European Commission: EU-US Privacy Shield.
Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the EEA.
7. Data security
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
Our security policies and procedures include:
- Measures in place to protect against accidental loss and unauthorised access, use, destruction, or disclosure of personal data;
- Appropriate measures and controls, including monitoring and physical measures, to store and transfer personal data securely;
- Training and informing staff: We provide privacy and data security information to all new joiners as well as making them aware of our protocols and procedures regarding the protection of personal data to ensure that they are informed about our information security policies and procedures and aware of their responsibilities; and
- Third party risk management: We require any third party service providers with whom we share personal data to protect such personal data in accordance with our security policies and procedures.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
8. Data retention: How long will you use my personal data for?
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it is processed, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements. When we no longer need personal data, we seek to ensure that it is securely deleted or destroyed.
9. Your legal rights
Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. Below is a summary of your legal rights in relation to your data:
- Access to personal data: We will give you access to your personal data upon request, subject to any relevant legal requirements and exemptions.
- Correction and deletion: you have the right to correct or amend your personal data if it is inaccurate or requires updating. You may also have the right to request deletion of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
- Withdrawal of consent: where Frank Water is processing your personal data on the basis that you have consented to such processing, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
- Objection to processing of your personal data: where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
- Restriction of processing of your personal data: this enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data (where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party)) but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
- Filing a complaint: if you are not satisfied with how Frank Water manages your personal data, you have the 9 right to make a complaint to a data protection regulator. A list of National Data Protection Authorities can be found here: http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/bodies/authorities/index_en.htm. We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach a National Data Protection Authority, so please contact us in the first instance.
If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact the Frank Water Head of Operations and Fundraising at firstname.lastname@example.org and 0117 329 4846.
No fee is usually required.
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
What we may need from you
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
Time limit to respond
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
