Infosound is a free public service broadcaster for vision-impaired (blind and partially-sighted / sight-impaired and severely sight-
impaired) people in Great Britain. We do not have members; no one joins Infosound, nor do they subscribe to our service - they just
listen whenever they choose.
Because of this, we rarely interact with, or contact, members of the public. There are only three reasons why we might hold personal data
about someone on record for a while; and this would usually be their name and/or their postal address and/or their telephone number
and/or their email address.
1. If we receive a donation, unless instructed otherwise, we always write to acknowledge receipt and to thank the donor. We would keep
a record of the donation as well as the donor's details; but, apart from (where applicable) reclaiming Gift Aid through HMRC, we would
never share any of this information with a third party.
2. We will post a copy, or copies, of the current Infosound sample CD to any individual, vision-impairment charity or other organisation
that asks for more information about us and how to listen. Once despatched, no permanent record of the recipient's contact details is
kept on record.
3. In the day-to-day working of the charity, we naturally receive emails, letters and phone calls. Any data contained within these
communications is retained by Infosound; but we would never share any of this data with a third party.
2019, after which time the charity will register under the newer General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which came into force on
25th May, 2018.
