We are com­mit­ted to pro­tect­ing your pri­va­cy and will only use the infor­ma­tion that we col­lect about you law­ful­ly. This pol­i­cy is intend­ed to give you an under­stand­ing of how and why we use the infor­ma­tion you pro­vide to us with both online and otherwise.

Please read this pol­i­cy care­ful­ly to under­stand how we will col­lect, use and store your data.  By using our web­site or pro­vid­ing us with your per­son­al infor­ma­tion you agree to it being used and stored in the man­ner set out in this pol­i­cy. We may update this pol­i­cy from time to time with­out notice to you, so please check it regularly.


It’s impor­tant that you read the full pol­i­cy to under­stand what infor­ma­tion we hold, how we may use it, and what your rights are – but if you don’t have time to read it all now, here’s a quick summary:
• We col­lect infor­ma­tion that is per­son­al data. Per­son­al data is infor­ma­tion that can be used to help iden­ti­fy an indi­vid­ual, such as name, address, phone num­ber, email address, IP address­es or web­site pages accessed.
• We col­lect infor­ma­tion about every­one who engages with PAK7. This could be sup­port­ers, sub­scribers, view­ers, those who par­tic­i­pate in our pro­grams or events, donors, vol­un­teers, free­lancers, employ­ees or trustees.
• We col­lect infor­ma­tion from sup­port­ers and donors to pro­vide ser­vices or goods, to pro­vide infor­ma­tion, to fundraise for our work, to resource our activ­i­ties and ful­fill our char­i­ta­ble objec­tives and for admin­is­tra­tion. This infor­ma­tion may also be used for research and wealth screen­ing, analy­sis, and for the pre­ven­tion or detec­tion of crime.
• We col­lect infor­ma­tion from view­ers when they con­tact us to assist them with their enquiries, to resource our activ­i­ties and ful­fill our char­i­ta­ble objec­tives and for administration.
• We only col­lect the infor­ma­tion that we need or that you agree we can collect.
• We do our best to keep per­son­al infor­ma­tion secure wher­ev­er we col­lect per­son­al data online.
• We nev­er sell your data and we will nev­er share it with anoth­er com­pa­ny or char­i­ty for their own purposes.
• We only share data where we are required by law or with care­ful­ly select­ed ser­vice providers who car­ry out work for us. We rec­og­nize the impor­tance of ensur­ing that all our ser­vice providers treat your data as care­ful­ly as we would, use it only as instruct­ed, and allow us to check that they do this.
• Our web­sites use cook­ies. For more infor­ma­tion, please check our cook­ies policy.

These are the key points of the pri­va­cy pol­i­cy. You will find the pol­i­cy in full below.
This pol­i­cy applies to all the web­sites we oper­ate, our use of emails and postal mail­ings for mar­ket­ing pur­pos­es, and any oth­er meth­ods we use for col­lect­ing infor­ma­tion. It cov­ers what we col­lect and why, what we do with the infor­ma­tion, what we won’t do with the infor­ma­tion, and what rights you have.

PAK7 US was reg­is­tered as a non­prof­it orga­ni­za­tion in the State of Mary­land on Feb­ru­ary 7, 2018.

For fur­ther infor­ma­tion about our pri­va­cy pol­i­cy and data pro­tec­tion, please con­tact us by:
• email­ing info@pak7.org
• writ­ing to our Data Pro­tec­tion team at PAK7’s reg­is­tered address: 918 S Pleas­ant­burg Dr #218, Greenville, SC 29607
• call­ing us on +(704) 818 0111



We will only ever col­lect the infor­ma­tion we need – includ­ing data to help improve our ser­vices – or which you agree we can collect.
We col­lect per­son­al data about you when you:
• reg­is­ter to receive com­mu­ni­ca­tions from us
• request infor­ma­tion, attend an event or make donations
• use our web­site using cook­ies. (See sep­a­rate Cook­ies Policy)

The per­son­al data col­lect­ed may include:
• Your name
• Your billing / postal address
• Your tele­phone number(s)
• Your email address
• The church you attend
• Finan­cial infor­ma­tion such as your bank or card details
• Infor­ma­tion you enter onto our website
• Records of your cor­re­spon­dence with us
• Details of your vis­it to our web­site, and inter­ac­tion with our e‑mail com­mu­ni­ca­tions, includ­ing your IP address

You do not have to pro­vide us with this infor­ma­tion, but if you choose not to, then we may be unable to give you the infor­ma­tion or ser­vice you request. For exam­ple, you do not have to tell us your tele­phone num­ber, but it will help us to con­tact you quick­ly if we have a query. We receive and store your email address when you fill in one of our online forms and also if you sub­scribe to our emails or oth­er e‑publications we may offer.

By pro­vid­ing infor­ma­tion about the church you attend, you agree to us hold­ing and using infor­ma­tion about your reli­gious affiliation.
We do also receive infor­ma­tion from oth­er sources, for exam­ple: If we receive updat­ed deliv­ery and address infor­ma­tion from our mail & deliv­ery ser­vices we will then cor­rect your records. We may also check data against pub­lic records e.g. deceased records in order to keep our data­base accu­rate and up to do date. We also receive infor­ma­tion from pub­lic sources as part of our research and pro­fil­ing activ­i­ty as explained above.


We will process your data for the fol­low­ing reasons:
• To ful­fill your requests and con­tin­u­al­ly improve your inter­ac­tion with our website.
• To deliv­er lit­er­a­ture and oth­er mate­ri­als that you have request­ed from us.
• To admin­is­ter a dona­tion from you.
• For our own inter­nal admin­is­tra­tive pur­pos­es and to keep a record of your rela­tion­ship with us;
• To con­tact you by post, phone, e‑mail and SMS for mar­ket­ing pur­pos­es, to pro­vide you with infor­ma­tion about us, our fundrais­ing cam­paigns, our events (includ­ing chal­lenge events such as marathons), con­fer­ences, prod­ucts and ser­vices, and any oth­er infor­ma­tion we think may be of inter­est to you.
• To man­age your com­mu­ni­ca­tion preferences.
• To car­ry out research to find out more infor­ma­tion about our sup­port­ers’ back­grounds and interests.
• To com­ply with applic­a­ble laws and reg­u­la­tions, and requests from statu­to­ry agencies.
• Pre­vent or detect fraud or the mis­use of our website.
• Enable tech­ni­cal main­te­nance work to be car­ried out by spe­cial­ists on our serv­er systems.

We may also ana­lyze and screen 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.  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.

When build­ing such a pro­file we may make use of addi­tion­al infor­ma­tion about you, includ­ing geo-demo­graph­ic infor­ma­tion and mea­sures of afflu­ence. This infor­ma­tion is tak­en from pub­licly avail­able sources, for exam­ple from pub­lic reg­is­ters, such as list­ed Direc­tor­ships, typ­i­cal earn­ings in a geo­graph­i­cal area, infor­ma­tion from the elec­toral roll, press reports and social media posts.  We may use third par­ty sup­pli­ers to under­take these activ­i­ties on our behalf and share your infor­ma­tion with them to the extent required.

Whilst gen­er­al­ly we will seek con­sent to process your data at the point we col­lect it, in some cas­es we may process data with­out con­sent where it is with­in our legit­i­mate inter­ests to do so (e.g. to process a dona­tion you have made), pro­vid­ed that we respect your legal rights.

We will nev­er sell or share your data with third par­ties for their own mar­ket­ing pur­pos­es. We will not share your infor­ma­tion with oth­er indi­vid­u­als or orga­ni­za­tions out­side the PAK7 Inter­na­tion­al fam­i­ly. With­in the PAK7 Inter­na­tion­al Fam­i­ly we will only share data to give you the best and most rel­e­vant experience.
We may allow our staff, con­sul­tants and/or exter­nal providers act­ing on our behalf to access and use your infor­ma­tion for the pur­pos­es for which you have pro­vid­ed it to us (e.g. to deliv­er mail­ings, to analyse data and to process pay­ments).  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.

Our web­site con­tains links to oth­er web­sites. This pri­va­cy pol­i­cy only applies to this web­site. When you link to oth­er web­sites you should read their own pri­va­cy policies.


We rely on a vari­ety of legal bases for pro­cess­ing data depend­ing on the pur­pose of the activ­i­ty being undertaken.
We use a con­trac­tu­al basis for pro­cess­ing data relat­ing to sub­scrip­tions, pur­chas­es and events you have booked.
We rely on legit­i­mate inter­ests for a vari­ety of pur­pos­es. Legit­i­mate inter­est is about bal­anc­ing the inter­ests of PAK7 against your rights and free­doms and hav­ing due regard to your rea­son­able expec­ta­tions about the use of your data. These pur­pos­es include:
• mail­ing you infor­ma­tion about relat­ed resources and events that you might be inter­est­ed in, giv­en your pre­vi­ous purchases
• mail­ing oth­er infor­ma­tion about PAK7 such as our Annu­al Report
• thank­ing (either by mail or tele­phone) those of you who have made a finan­cial gift
• research and wealth screen­ing activ­i­ty to bet­ter tai­lor any finan­cial requests we make of you so that they reflect your spe­cif­ic inter­ests in PAK7’s mis­sion and are at an appro­pri­ate finan­cial level

We also rely on the legit­i­mate inter­ests legal basis to share with you the fundrais­ing needs of the char­i­ty and to ask for your sup­port, giv­en your engage­ment with PAK7’s resources, events and pro­grams, pro­vid­ed that we have also pre­vi­ous­ly obtained any addi­tion­al con­sents required to send this infor­ma­tion to you in par­tic­u­lar for­mats. For exam­ple, we will not send fundrais­ing infor­ma­tion or requests to you by email or oth­er elec­tron­ic means or via auto­mat­ed tele­phone calls where you have not opt­ed in to these for­mats before­hand. You can let us know at any time if you would pre­fer not to receive these communications.

We use your con­sent for all the email newslet­ters deliv­ered by us. Every email newslet­ter you receive pro­vides a clear oppor­tu­ni­ty for you to opt out of/unsubscribe from future email newsletters.

We use com­pli­ance with a legal oblig­a­tion as the basis for pro­cess­ing any legal­ly required activities.


All your infor­ma­tion will be trans­mit­ted secure­ly. Our whole web­site is pro­tect­ed by a secu­ri­ty cer­tifi­cate. We use Pay­Pal to process all dona­tions – a ser­vice that han­dles mil­lions of pounds’ worth of dona­tions every month glob­al­ly. The trans­fer of the pur­chase details from the retail­ers site to Pay­Pal are encap­su­lat­ed using their own encrypt­ed and dig­i­tal­ly-signed pro­to­col. This uses a com­bi­na­tion of stan­dard meth­ods such as PGP, RSA and MD5 to ensure that the infor­ma­tion passed is secure and tamper-proof.
The infor­ma­tion we col­lect from you may be trans­ferred to and processed and/or stored at a des­ti­na­tion out­side the Euro­pean Eco­nom­ic Area (“EEA”), includ­ing the U.S. If we send your per­son­al data out­side the EEA we will take rea­son­able steps to ensure that the recip­i­ent imple­ments appro­pri­ate mea­sures to pro­tect your infor­ma­tion.  By sub­mit­ting your details, you agree to this use of your data.

The con­fi­den­tial­i­ty of your infor­ma­tion is safe­guard­ed by:
• Pro­tect­ing data from improp­er use such as unlaw­ful access, changes or destruc­tion and acci­den­tal loss
• Ensur­ing that all our employ­ees respect the con­fi­den­tial­i­ty of our site vis­i­tors’ per­son­al data
• Occa­sion­al­ly request­ing proof of iden­ti­ty before we dis­close per­son­al infor­ma­tion to you

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 data pro­tec­tion policy.
If you request to receive no fur­ther con­tact from us, we will keep some basic infor­ma­tion about you on our sup­pres­sion list in order to avoid send­ing you unwant­ed mate­ri­als in the future.

You have the right to request a copy of the infor­ma­tion that we hold about you. If you would like a copy of some or all of your per­son­al infor­ma­tion, please con­tact us. We want to make sure that your per­son­al infor­ma­tion is accu­rate and up to date. You may ask us to cor­rect or remove infor­ma­tion you think is inaccurate.
You can also opt-out of receiv­ing all or some of our mar­ket­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tions or request that we stop pro­cess­ing data about you for cer­tain pur­pos­es (e.g. pro­fil­ing) at any time, by con­tact­ing us using the details below.

If you have any ques­tions or are unhap­py with some­thing that we have done or failed to do, we do want to know about it. Your com­ments enable us as an orga­ni­za­tion to learn and con­tin­u­ous­ly improve our ser­vices. Please con­tact us by:
• email­ing info@pak7.org
• writ­ing to our Data Pro­tec­tion team at PAK7’s reg­is­tered address: 918 S Pleas­ant­burg Dr #218, Greenville, SC 29607
