LCD is the data controller of all personal information collected from the site.

LCD tracks and analyses general usage of the site. Data generated solely from that activity does not, however, contain personal information, but simply records how many people access particular pages.

LCD may store information about you and your activity in cookies. 'Cookies' are small pieces of information sent by an organisation to your computer and stored on your hard drive to allow that organisation to identify you when you next visit. If you want to turn-off any cookies or delete any that are already on your computer, please refer to the instructions for your file management software to locate the file or directory that stores cookies. Further information on deleting or controlling cookies is available on our cookies page.

LCD only processes personal information collected openly from you as you travel through the site.

Explanations will be given at the point of the collection (e.g. an application form) about how your data will be used. The site will then indicate the uses to which any personal data collected from you will be put.

If you are asked to contact someone for further information or goods or services, an explanation of the purposes for which any personal information collected from you will be used will be given by that contact person.

LCD may pass your information to any third party as may be necessary to process your donation, to any subsidiary company of LCD, and to our agents to assist with carrying out LCD's own purposes, but not, unless you explicitly consent, to other organisations who may share our objectives or to other third parties for any purpose.
