A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that is downloaded on to your computer when you visit a website.

Disclosure of user information

GP will share your data with charities and other good causes you fundraise for or donate to.

GP will not share your personal data with any other third parties (without your consent), unless we have to disclose this data by law, or the disclosure is “necessary” for purposes of national security, taxation and criminal investigation.

Information as to where your personal data is stored

Given that the Internet is a global environment, collection and processing of personal data inevitably involves transmitting data on an international basis. This means that data you pass to GP may be processed outside of Europe, although the data will always be held in a secure manner and in line with the requirements of UK data protection legislation. By communicating electronically with GP, you acknowledge and agree to it processing your personal data in this way.

User rights

You have the right to see what personal data GP hold about you.
