Privacy Policy

This policy covers THE OLLIE FOUNDATION' use of personal information that THE OLLIE FOUNDATION. collects when you use theolliefoundation.org.

From time to time, you will be asked to submit personal information about yourself (e.g. name and e-mail address) in order to receive or use the services featured on our website. Such services include newsletters, a review of your marketing material and information requisitions regarding THE OLLIE FOUNDATION' services and promotions.

By entering your details in the fields requested, you enable THE OLLIE FOUNDATION to provide you with the services and/or information you select. Whenever you provide such personal information, we will treat that information in accordance with this policy. When using your personal information THE OLLIE FOUNDATION will act in accordance with current legislation and aim to meet current Internet best practice.

Please note that we do provide links to other sites, which may not be governed by this Privacy Policy and you should view the relevant policies of those sites for further information. THE OLLIE FOUNDATION is not responsible for the content of external internet sites, nor necessarily endorses them.

Use and storage of your personal information

When you supply any personal information to theolliefoundation.org (e.g. for request for services or information) we have legal obligations towards you in the way we use that data. We must collect the information fairly, that is, we must explain how we will use it and will tell you if we want to pass the information on to anyone else.

In general, any information you provide to THE OLLIE FOUNDATION will only be used within the organisation. Your information will be disclosed where we are obliged or permitted by law. Also, if you send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on or to theolliefoundation.org or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on theolliefoundation.com, THE OLLIE FOUNDATION can use whatever information that is available to it about you to stop such behaviour. This may involve informing relevant third parties such as your employer, school, e-mail/internet service provider, even law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour.

We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as the service you have requested is available, and remove it in the event that you no longer wish to continue your registration with THE OLLIE FOUNDATION. Where personal information is held for people who are not yet registered but have taken part in other THE OLLIE FOUNDATION services (e.g. newsletters), that information will be held as long as is necessary to ensure that the service is run smoothly. We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely, in accordance with the Data Protection Act, 1998.

If you are notified on theolliefoundation.org that your information may be used to allow THE OLLIE FOUNDATION to contact you, this means that THE OLLIE FOUNDATION may contact you for a number of purposes relating to the service or related services in which you have expressed interest.

It is the policy of THE OLLIE FOUNDATION not to transfer or sell to a third party any information it receives through theolliefoundation.org.

Access to your personal information

You have the right to request a copy of the personal information that THE OLLIE FOUNDATION holds about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected. (We charge £10 for such requests.) Please address requests to the Data Protection Officer: Data Protection Officer, THE OLLIE FOUNDATION Ltd.

If you are aged 16 or under, you are not eligible to use THE OLLIE FOUNDATION' services. Users who fall into this category are not allowed to provide us with their personal information.


A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a website's computer and stored on your computer's hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Many sites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows and record information about your online preferences. Currently, theolliefoundation.org uses cookies only for the client login feature and for website analytics.

THE OLLIE FOUNDATION may update this policy at any time. Such amendments will be announced here.

If I Can Stop This Happening To Any Other Family, I Will.
