This privacy notice was last updated on the 12th of September 2019.

We may update this Notice from time to time and you should review it whenever you visit our website or before providing us with any personal data about yourself.

Who we are
We are March of the Living (UK) Limited, a charity registered in England and also known as March of the Living and March of the Living UK. Our aims are to promote the advancement of education for the public benefit in the events leading up to, surrounding and concerning the holocaust and to commemorate and remember the victims of the Holocaust.

For the purpose of the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) (“the GDPR”), March of the Living UK is a data controller in respect of any personal data we collect.

How we collect your personal data
We will only collect and use your personal data where we have legitimate reasons to do so. We may obtain personal data from you when you contact us or register with us via our website or visit our office or when you make a donation or when we are given your details as an emergency contact. We also collect your data when you contact us about working with March of the Living UK or when you provide our staff with business cards or contact details, when we receive referrals from our employees, clients or suppliers or when you deal with us in order to provide us with goods or services.

We may also collect your data when we search websites where you have posted your data to be found in relation to business opportunities. We will of course let you know at the earliest opportunity when we have gathered your data in this manner.

The personal data we collect
We collect personal data in order to provide the best possible service we can or to maintain good business and client relationships. We only collect the data we need and we will ensure we have appropriate physical and technological security measures to protect your personal data.

For donors or volunteers or people going on our annual trip or suppliers whose services we use, depending on the relevant circumstances, we may collect some or all of the following information: name, title, email address, postal address, telephone numbers and other contact numbers, date of birth, bank details, health information, dietary information and passport information.

What we use your information for
March of the Living UK collects and processes your personal data for legitimate Business purposes including organising our annual trip, internal record-keeping, processing financial transactions, in connection with legal, financial and dispute management, for compliance with legal, regulatory and tax reporting obligations and releasing your personal information to regulatory or law enforcement agencies, if they require us to do so by law for the prevention, detection and investigation of crimes. We may also use your data to market our related products and services directly to you and advise you of any updates to our services; where we do so you will be able to unsubscribe at any time from receiving any further communications from us.

We may use your personal data where we deem it to be necessary for our legitimate interests or for mutually beneficial legitimate interests. These legitimate interests are explained a little further down this notice.

Sharing your personal data
Where appropriate and in accordance with local laws and regulatory obligations, we may share some of your personal data with third party service providers who perform functions on our behalf including external consultants, business associates and professional advisers such as lawyers, auditors and accountants and technical support consultants. If you have registered with us for our annual trip we may also share data for purposes of travel and accommodation.

If March of the Living UK acquires, merges with or is acquired by another business or company in the future, (or is in meaningful discussions about such a possibility) we may share your personal data with the other business or company, subject to appropriate assurances as to the protection of your data privacy.

Your Rights
You have individual rights under the GDPR. You can exercise any of these rights by contacting us using our contact details at the end of this notice or by any other means. Your rights are listed and explained below. You have the right to:

  1. be informed of what we do with your data;
  2. ask us to share what information we hold about you;
  3. update your data if you think it’s incorrect or insufficient;
  4. have your personal data deleted (right to be forgotten);
  5. ask us to stop processing your data – where consent has been given you can withdraw that consent at any time by contacting us using the details at the bottom of this notice;
  6. have the personal data you have given us transferred to another company;
  7. object to us processing your personal data where we do so under legitimate interests;
  8. ask us to explain and to ask us to stop using automated decision making (a decision made by automated means without any human involvement) and profiling (where we classify you into different groups or sectors, using algorithms and machine-learning to identify links between different behaviours and characteristics to create profiles for individuals).

Transfer of data outside the EU
Normally your data will not be transferred to a country or territory outside the EU unless that country or territory ensures an adequate level of protection or the appropriate safeguards are in place for your rights and freedoms.

It is our policy only to keep records of your personal data for as long as required as determined by our legitimate interests or under the legal obligations of delivering a service to you, or as required by relevant authorities or other legislation, whichever requirement is longer, after which it will be deleted or destroyed.

If you are a donor we may, for regulatory reasons or to settle a dispute, keep your data for a minimum six years after the end of the engagement with us or for up to ten years for reasons of legitimate interests.

If you have registered with us for our annual trip we will delete any information gathered specifically for the trip one month after the end of the trip. We will keep contact information, for regulatory reasons or to settle a dispute, for a minimum of six years after the end of the trip. We will keep it for longer for reasons of legitimate interest where we maintain contact with you but no longer than four years after our last interaction.

If you are a supplier we may, for regulatory reasons or to settle a dispute, keep your data for six years after the end of the engagement with us.

If you have contacted us via our website or sent us an email and we do not engage any further with you, we will destroy your data after two years or sooner.

Legitimate interests
The GDPR states (in Article 6(1)(f)) that we can process your data where it is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us except where such interests are overridden by your interests or fundamental rights or freedoms. March of the Living think it is reasonable to expect that if we have had a relationship with you or you have contacted us or we have been given your name as an emergency contact or as a referee, you are happy for us to use your personal data to contact you for a relevant reason within our retention periods. If you don’t want any further contact with us, you can ask us to stop by contacting us using the details at the end of this Privacy Notice.
