1.Who are we?

Who are Healing Hooves Devon?

We are a non-profit organisation who exclusively rescue or are donated ponies in need of a safe forever home.

We also provide assistance/ therapy ponies which are used in a variety of settings, these include: children in hospitals and hospices, disabled children, foster homes and schools, children who have witnessed an event such as bereavement, abuse, trafficking, refugees and so many more!

They can be used with adults who have addiction issues, learning difficulties, disabilities, live in deprived areas, the long term unemployed, female refugees, homeless shelters and people with PTSD.

Elderly people also benefit from visits to residential nursing homes and hospitals.

We have two main goals, we rescue ponies and we help people.

2. Our commitment to your privacy  

We are committed to keeping the personal details of our donors, supporters and loaners safe. This policy explains how and why we use your personal data, to ensure that you remain informed and in control of your information.

Any references to Healing Hooves Devon or to ‘we’ or ‘us’ refer to:

  • Healing Hooves Devon. We are a registered charity in England and Wales, and our registered charity number is 1172922.

We use three key definitions to describe people mentioned in this policy. These are definitions used by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the UK’s independent body set up to uphold information rights (www.ico.org.uk)

  • ‘Data subject’: this is you, one of our loyal donors, supporters or loaners. As the data subject, we respect your right to control your data.
  • ‘Data controller’: this is us, the Healing Hooves Devon. With your permission, we determine why and how your personal data is used (as outlined in this policy).
  • ‘Data processor’: this is a person, or organisation, who processes your data on ourbehalf, with your permission. For example, this might be a mailing house who sends out our literature to you, on our behalf (due to the size of our organisation, it might be more cost-effective to outsource ad-hoc and large-scale tasks like this).

The third parties we work with at no point ‘own’ your data, so you will never hear from them independently and they will always delete your data from their systems when they have completed the task in hand. We always send your data to partner organisations securely, to minimise the risk of it being intercepted by unknown individuals and/or organisations.

We will never sell your personal data.

Should you wish to find out more about the information we hold about you, or about our privacy policy, please contact us:

    Telephone: TBC

3. Why do we collect your personal data?

We use your personal data to keep in touch with you.

We will only ever collect, store and use your personal data when we have an identified purpose and reason to do so. The ICO refers to this as a ‘lawful basis’. Further information about why we collect your personal data is outlined below.

  • a) To administer your Healing Hooves Devon donations and loan agreements

We collect your personal data to administer your donations and loan agreements, which may involve:

  • Sending you a donor/supporter letter
  • Storing loan agreements
  • Processing your Direct Debit subscription payments, if you have set this donation process up with us
  • Getting in touch should there ever be any issues processing your subscription payment or with any loan agreements.

The ICO define the lawful basis for processing your data for these purposes as ‘contractual’.

  • b) To send you information about our work and ask for your opinion

We also collect your personal data so that we can send you information about our work that we feel will be of interest to you. This includes fundraising appeals, events, campaigning opportunities, membership, services, products, newsletter requests, feedback, competitions and other activities, as well as information about other carefully selected organisations that we work in partnership with (such as Corporate Sponsors) From time to time, we may also use your personal data to ask for your opinion about our work.

This information is in addition to that outlined in section a)and is defined as ‘direct marketing’ by the ICO.

Your personal data also helps us to get to know you better and to develop a ‘profile’ of you on our secure supporter database. This ‘profile’ enables us to send you the information listed above in a timely and relevant way, to suit you. For example, keeping track of the donations you make to our organisation helps us to send you information about fundraising appeals that we feel you would like to hear about. Likewise, keeping a record of our loan ponies may enable us to inform you of goods and services that may be relevant to you.

As defined by the ICO, we use two different lawful bases for processing your data for ‘direct marketing’ purposes:

  • a) Legitimate interest

This is where we have identified a genuine and legitimate reason for contacting you, which crucially does not override your rights or interests

We use legitimate interest to send you the information listed above by post or telephone (if you are not registered with the Telephone Preference Service, and you have given us your telephone number).

  • b) Opt-in consent

This is where you have given us express permission to contact you by particular communication channels.

We use opt-in consent to send you the information listed above by email, text message (SMS) or telephone (if you are registered with the Telephone Preference Service)

We respect your right to update the way we get in touch with you about our work at any time.

  • c) To enable you to volunteer with us

If you are a Healing Hooves Devon volunteer, we collect your personal data so that we can keep in touch with you about, for example:

  • changes to planned volunteer work programmes that you may be taking part in
  • the positive impact you have on our work
  • dedicated volunteer thank-you communication

As defined by the ICO, the lawful basis for processing your data for these purposes is ‘contractual’ (where administering your volunteer record) and ‘legitimate interest’ (when sending you information about our work).


4. What kind of personal data do we collect? How do we collect it?

  • a) Basic information

We will usually collect basic information about you, including your name, postal address, telephone number, email address and your bank details – if you are supporting us financially.

Most of the time, we collect this data from you directly. Sometimes this is in person; other timesit is over the telephone, in writing or through an email. Occasionally we obtain information, such as your telephone number or other contact details, from external sources (only where you have given permission for such information to be shared).

  • b) Getting to know you better

We also collect information about you that helps us to get to know you better. This may include:

  • records of donations you’ve made towards fundraising appeals
  • your preferences of how you would like us to contact you
  • ways you’ve helped us through volunteering your time
  • records of events you’ve attended, or campaigns or activities that you’ve been involved in

Sometimes we will collect other information about you such as your year of birth and dates of birth for children. When we do so, we will be very clear as to why we are collecting such information, and we will only do so with your specific consent and permission.

Once again, most of the time we collect this data from you directly.

Other ways in which we collect personal data to get to know you better include:

When we do so, we will be very clear as to why we are collecting such information, and we will only do so with your specific consent and permission. In these situations, we collect the data from you directly.

If you are a volunteer then we may collect extra information about you, for example:

CCTV will only be viewed when necessary (e.g. to detect or prevent crime) and footage is only stored temporarily. Unless it is flagged for review CCTV will be recorded over.

Healing Hooves Devon complies with the Information Commissioner’s Office CCTV Code of Practice, and we put up notices, so you know when CCTV is in use.

  • d) Data retention policy
