If you wish to book by telephone or in person, we will enter your details onto the third-party app for you. If you are an existing supporter, we will update our supporter database to show that you have visited us and to enable us to claim Gift Aid on any donation you have made with your ticket booking. When booking through the third-party app, whether online, on the phone, or in person, you can choose to opt in or out of participating in the Government’s contacting tracing scheme.

Making an enquiry or complaint
When making a complaint or an enquiry at Redwings we will log your comments on your individual supporter record (if you have one). For cases when you are not a supporter, a new complaint or enquiry record will be created. This is to ensure we can respond to your comments and improve your experience for next time. Your record will be securely and confidentially held on our supporter database, with restricted access. As a charity we are required to annually report on our complaints, however the information provided to the relevant bodies is anonymised.
Film and photography
It is Redwings’ policy to obtain consent from the appropriate person for all photos and film where we are planning to use the image for materials in the public domain. For adults aged 18 and over consent must be obtained from the subject of the photography or film. For children under the age of 18 consent must be obtained from the parent or legal guardian of the child.
Consent can be changed or withdrawn at any time. In these circumstances we will not use the image in any future publications; however we will not be able to withdraw images already published, or prevent them from being used by third party social media, TV or print publications.
Redwings requires parental or legal guardian consent for anyone under the age of 16 wishing to use our online account services (including our online Adoption Scheme area). We will ask for this consent at the point of sign-up and send a confirmation email to the parent/legal guardian. We also require parental or legal guardian consent for anyone under 16 wishing to receive direct postal mail communications from us, such as Mini Reds or Young Reds. Parents/legal guardians of children under the age of 16 will also be asked for their consent for photography and film purposes.
Data is held securely on our supporter database and only used for the purposes for which it was originally given to us. If at any point the child, parent or guardian decides they no longer want to hear from Redwings, contact preferences can be amended by logging onto the online account, by calling 01508 481000, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or writing to Supporter Services, Redwings Horse Sanctuary, Hapton, Norfolk, NR15 1SP.

Redwings holds data retention schedules for the data it processes. Our criteria for retaining data is that we will retain data to process in line with the original purpose. After that point Redwings will consider if there are other reasons we may need to retain data for a defined period of time i.e. legal, compliancy or operational reasons or for archiving or statistical purposes. If there is no reason for Redwings to retain the data it will be confidentially destroyed.

Redwings will process personal data of supporters for analysis purposes to help us provide the best possible customer service and Adoption Scheme. This includes analysing the location of our supporters, frequency of payments, age and other demographics that will help us better understand our supporter base so that we can provide an appropriate and effective customer service.
We do not undertake any wealth or demographic profiling or use third party profilers.
Data will be screened and cleaned in order to ensure that our records are accurate and up to date, especially in regard to deceased supporters. Data will also be screened for ‘gone aways’ (supporters who have moved house) in order to minimise the cost of contacting supporters who have moved house without informing us. Redwings will only use services for screening from trusted organisations, using data sources that require opt-ins or use publicly available information such as Smee & Ford (which uses probate information) and Royal Mail’s National Change of Address system (NCOA). From time to time Redwings may review the service providers and information sources used in order to ensure that we meet our legal obligations and minimise the cost to the charity of contacting supporters who may be deceased or who have moved house.
Some of our sites have CCTV (audio and visual) in place to help protect our employees, our equines, our visitors, and our stock. Signage is in place to inform people that they are in a surveillance zone. Access to our recorded CCTV footage is strictly limited to those with the appropriate training and security clearance.
We will only disclose data when obliged to disclose personal data by law, or the disclosure is ‘necessary’ for purposes of national security, taxation and criminal investigation, or we have your consent. Redwings may also share your data with the following authorised third parties:
When we pass on personal data to a third party we will make sure suitable data protection processing or sharing agreements are in place.
