Charity data is often made publicly available. For example, the Charity Commission for England & Wales maintains a public database of registered charities and contact details. We uses this freely available data to create our list of supportable charities and store the information on our databases.
Subject to the terms of the data provider (e.g. the Charity Commission for England & Wales), we may also contact the charity using those contact details to make them aware of any funds that have been raised for them through our services, as well as any benefits, products and services that we make available to the charity sector in order to help them raise additional funds.
We only contact people on that database or those who have expressly given us permission to do so.
