The ASP website is built with WordPress. The site uses standard WordPress services to collect anonymous information about users’ activity on the site, for example the number of users viewing pages on the site and how long they spend on a given page. We do this to monitor and report on the effectiveness of the site and help us improve it.

Donations to ASP can be made directly via webform. This form does not retain personal contact details, nor can we see them.

Contact us form

The Contact Us form on our website, does not store email addresses, instead it forwards enquiries to our general ASP email inbox. We will respond as soon as we are able and will not store any personal information without consent.

When and how we will get in touch

When you give us your personal details – for example when you sign up to receive email updates, register for an event, take part in a campaign, or make a donation – you may receive follow up information from us directly relevant to this activity, including how your support is helping.  Newsletter sign-ups are asked to confirm their continued consent annually. People attending events and following campaigns which may have a bounded time period, are given the option to continue contact by signing up for our newsletter – if you tell us you want to stay in touch to find out about our ongoing activities then we will treat this consent as lasting for twelve months.

We always act on your instructions, and aim to put you in control of your relationship with us. Our aim is to communicate with you in a way that makes you want to stay involved with us for as long as possible, as you see the value and impact of your support.

In the event of a security breach, we will notify all those who may be affected at the earliest possible opportunity. Allowing for immediate remedial action, we will be in touch with precautionary advice as soon as possible.

What details we ask for and why

There are minimum levels of information we need to obtain for different purposes – if you are signing up for an event or a campaign or to receive our newsletter then we will ask you for an email address and for the two former activities also a contact phone number and postcode.

We ask for your house number and postcode so that we hold a valid postal address for you. We need this information for the following reasons:

  • To set up Direct Debits and one-off card payments
  • To claim Gift Aid
  • To deliver items to you (items you have purchased or event materials for example)
  • If you have agreed to receive post from us, we will use your postcode and address to send you relevant information.
