OUR USE OF YOUR INFORMATION

The information that you provide to Fusion will be used to provide you with information about our work including partner-related mailings, events, resources, fundraising, training and other services and activities described on our website.

By providing information you are agreeing to receive communications from Fusion UK that enable us to service you within the context of the contact and relationships.

Fusion uses MailChimp to send regular emails. By providing us with your details you are giving Fusion your express permission to transfer your data to MailChimp. If you do not give this permission then Fusion will not be able to send emails to you via this service provider or to provide news and updates about the movement.

How long do we keep your information?

The length of time we keep the information you have given us depends on the context in which you provided it.

We will only keep information that is necessary for us to provide partner updates, resources and services, and for statistical purposes.

We will keep records of any financial transactions you enter into with us for a minimum of six years. This will enable us to meet with accounting requirements and respond to any questions from you that arise during that period.
