The Royal Air Force Museum American Foundation ensures that the shared aviation heritage of the USA and the UK is kept alive in the memories of our two great nations.
We (the Royal Air Force Museum and RAF Museum Enterprises Ltd.) are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. We will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully.
Developing a better understanding of our visitors and supporters through your personal data allows us make better decisions, fundraise more efficiently and, ultimately, helps us to reach our goal of telling the story of the Royal Air Force through its people and our collections and to ensure that the Royal Air Force’s story endures and enriches future generations.
This policy and any other documents referred to in it set out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you or that you provide to us will be processed and held by us. Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it. By using our websites or providing your personal information to the RAF Museum and/or RAF Museum Enterprise Limited you are accepting and consenting to the practices described in this policy (including any such amendments to this policy, as may be set out on our site, from time to time).
You may give us information in the following ways:
If you interact with us in one of the ways listed above, we may collect and process personal information about you such as:
With regard to each of your visits to our websites we may automatically collect the following information:
We may receive information about you if you use any of the other websites we operate or the other services we provide.
The information we get from other organisations may depend on your privacy settings or the responses you give, so you should regularly check them.
You may have provided permission for a company or other organisation to share your data with third parties, including charities. This could be when you buy a product or service, register for an online competition or sign up with a comparison site.
We also work closely with third parties (including, for example, business partners, sub-contractors in technical, payment and delivery services, advertising networks, analytics providers, search information providers, credit reference agencies) and may receive information about you from them.
These independent third parties will only do so when you have indicated that you wish to support the RAF Museum and with your consent.
Depending on your settings or the privacy policies for social media and messaging services like Facebook, WhatsApp or Twitter, you might give us permission to access information from those accounts or services.
Where the law allows us to do so, on occasion we may also collect information (such as your telephone number) from the public domain, either directly or from third parties and combine that with the information we currently hold.
Where possible we may use publicly available sources to keep your records up to date (e.g. using the Post Office’s National Change of Address database and postcode validation) and check against deceased records.
We will use this information
We will use this information:
We may combine this information with information you give to us and information we collect about you. We may use this information and the combined information for the purposes set out above (depending on the types of information we receive).
We may use profiling and screening techniques to analyse your personal information and create a profile of your interests and preferences. This allows us to ensure communications are relevant and timely, and provide an improved experience for our supporters. For fundraising, it also helps us understand the background of our supporters so that we can make appropriate requests to those who may be willing and able to give more than they already do, enabling us to raise funds sooner and more cost-effectively and proportionately than we otherwise would.
When building such a profile we may make use of additional information about you, including geo-demographic information and measures of affluence, when it is available from external sources to help us do this effectively. We may use third party suppliers to undertake these activities on our behalf and share your information with them to the extent required. Such information is compiled (either by us or our suppliers) using publicly available data e.g. addresses, information available from public registers, such as listed Directorships, typical earnings in a geographical area, information from the electoral roll, press reports and social media posts.
Some people choose to tell us about their experiences with the Royal Air Force or Royal Air Force Museum to help further our work. They may take on a role as an Ambassador or Media Volunteer, attend our events or sit on our committees. This may include them sharing sensitive information related to their career, health and family life in addition to their biographical and contact information.
We use some of the information provided, including gender, ethnicity or the type of story they have shared, to target opportunities to get involved. We will also monitor the types of people who are involved with the Museum to ensure that the views we hear are representative of all people.
If we have the explicit and informed consent of the individuals, or their parent or guardian if they are under 18, this information may be made public by us at events, in materials promoting our campaigning and fundraising work, or in documents such as our annual report.
We may share your personal information across the RAF Museum and our trading company, RAF Museum Enterprises Ltd.
We may share your information with selected third parties including business partners, suppliers and sub-contractors for the performance of any contract we enter into with you, advertisers and advertising networks that require the data to select and serve relevant adverts to you and others (we do not disclose information about identifiable individuals to our advertisers, but we may provide them with aggregate information about our users), analytics and search engine providers that assist us in the improvement and optimisation of our site. We only provide them with the information they need to deliver the relevant service, and we make sure your information is treated with the same level of care as if we were handling it directly.
We do not sell your data to third parties for the purposes of marketing.
We ensure that there are appropriate technical controls in place to protect your personal details. For example our online forms are always encrypted and our network is protected and routinely monitored. All information you provide us is stored on secure servers in accordance with our internal security policies. Any online payment transactions will be encrypted.
We undertake regular reviews of who has access to information that we hold to ensure that your information is only accessible by appropriately trained staff, volunteers and contractors.
We may use external companies to collect or process personal data on our behalf. We do comprehensive checks on these companies before we work with them, and put a contract in place that sets out our expectations and requirements, especially regarding how they manage the personal data they have collect or access.
Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. The transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure.
Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site and any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
If you request to receive no further contact from us, we will keep some basic information in order to avoid sending you unwanted materials in the future, and to ensure that we do not accidentally store details for the same person multiple times. If we did not retain this information then this could result in us contacting you again as we would no longer have a record of your request not to be contacted.
We will keep your personal data for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which it is processed, in accordance with our internal policies.
To request details of the information we hold about you, if you have provided us with your personal information, but decide at a later date that you no longer want to receive information from us, or if you wish to update us that your contact details have changed or change your preferences, simply let us know by:
Instructions for unsubscribing from emails will also be included in each email communication we send.
If you are unhappy with the way in which your personal data has been handled you are entitled to make a complaint to the Information Commissioner’s Office.
Our site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates.
