Turn Around is a registered charity (charity number 1112832).
When you contact, we may receive and retain personal information about you. This can consist of information such as your name, email address, postal address, telephone or mobile number.
If you are simply browsing our website as an anonymous visitor, we may still collect certain information from you, such as your IP addresses (an IP address is a number that can uniquely identify a specific computer or other network device on the internet).
We will use your personal information for a number of purposes including the following:
We will only use your information within Turn Around for the purposes for which it was obtained, unless you have explicitly agreed that we may share your information with another organisation.
We will keep your information confidential except where disclosure is required or permitted by law (for example to government bodies for tax purposes or law enforcement agencies for the prevention and detection of crime, subject to such bodies providing us with a relevant request in writing).
If you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content to or anywhere on the Turn Around website or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on any Turn Around service, we may use your personal information to stop such behaviour.
Where Turn Around reasonably believes that you are or may be in breach of any of the laws of England and Wales (or the law of Scotland if you live there) (e.g. because content you have posted may be defamatory), we may use your personal information to inform relevant third parties such as your employer, internet provider or law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour.
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity.
The accuracy of your information is important to us. We are working on ways to make it easier for you to review and correct the information that Turn Around maintains about you. In the meantime, if you change email address or any of the other information we hold is inaccurate or out of date, you can let us know by emailing us at email@example.com, or write to us at Turn Around, 25 High Street,

Under the Data Protection Act you have the right to request a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected. (We charge £10 for information requests and require you to prove your identity).
