Cookies Policy

When someone visits our Website, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service, to collect standard Internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns.

We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the Website.

This information is only processed in a way, which does not identify anyone.

We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our Website.

If we do want to collect personally identifiable information through our Website, we will be up front about this.
We will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it.

3) Our legal basis for processing personal data

We need a lawful basis to collect and use your personal data under data protection law.

The law allows for six ways to process personal data (and additional ways for sensitive personal data). Four of these are relevant to the types of processing that GWD carries out.

  • This includes information that is processed on the basis of:
  • A person’s consent (for example to send you direct marketing by e-mail and for our website visitors)
  • Processing necessary for the performance of a contract with you (for our customers)
  • Processing that is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation
  • Our legitimate interests

Personal data may be legally collected and used if it is necessary for a legitimate interest of the organisation using the data, as long as that interest is not overridden by the privacy rights of the individual whose data is being used. If you would like to change our use of your personal data, please get in touch with us using the details in the “How to contact us” section below.

4) Will we share this information with others?

We do not share, sell or rent your information to third parties for marketing purposes.

We will not otherwise disclose your personal information unless required to do so by a regulatory agency or law or unless we have consent from you.

Third Party Processors; our carefully selected partners and service providers may process personal information about you on our behalf as described below.

“Digital Marketing Service Providers: We periodically appoint digital marketing agents to conduct marketing activity on our behalf, such activity may result in the compliant processing of personal information.

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 to us (e.g. to analyse data or to process payments).

We make sure your information is treated with the same level of care as if we were handling it directly.

5) How do we protect the security of personal data?

We ensure that there are appropriate physical, technical and managerial controls in place to protect your personal details.

All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers.

Any payment transactions will be encrypted.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password, which enables you to access certain GWD services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

Please note, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure.

Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our website; any transmission is at your own risk.

Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

6) How long do we keep your data for?

We will keep your personal data for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which it is processed, in accordance with our policies or applicable regulation.

Once the retention period has expired, the information will be deleted or archived.

Individuals have the following rights under data protection legislation:

  • A right to ask for a copy of their personal data
  • A right to ask us to delete or correct any information we hold about them that is inaccurate. You can request any amendments or rectifications to your data by contacting us and to notify us if you would like us to delete or erase your data.
  • A right to request erasure of information in certain circumstances. Please note that, in certain circumstances, we may not be
    able to delete or erase your personal data such as where this is still required for the purpose for which it was provided or where we have overriding legitimate interests in retaining your data.
  • A right to data portability
  • A right to restrict processing and a right to object to processing activities in certain circumstances
  • A right to stop your information from being used for direct marketing purposes. Where any processing is based on consent you have a right to withdraw consent at any time, without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

Conversation Starter

Converting an initial donation into a meaningful relationship is also part of the Donation Station experience. Key prompts for information gathering allow you to capture data from donors that can be used to continue the conversation into the future.

Attract Loop

Part of the Donation Station’s key visual design features, the Attract Loop are screensavers purposefully designed to run on a loop. Created by GWD with your input, they use visuals or photography, plus an emotive call to action, to catch the donors interest and lead them towards donation through interactive storytelling.


The entire Donation Station is open to branding, from external display to on-screen logos, photography and your brand look and feel.

Our design support service can adapt visuals and graphics to suit your brand.

Wifi or 4G/5G Data SIM

Where you need it, the Donation Station can be supplied with Data or Wifi connectivity.

If using the device in a remote location or at an event, it’s worth considering the signal strength available – GWD can support you to ensure there’s a smooth running operation on the day.

Safe & Secure

All data is transmitted with full encryption, so you can be sure that all individual donor data is safely used, in accordance with GDPR regulations.

Choice of Donations

Giving choice on where the donor wants their money to be spent empowers them further. The Donation Station asks this question and gives charities freedom to present their causes and activities as separate campaigns.

Gift Aid Up Sell

An integrated Gift Aid function on all Donation Stations helps boost fundraising a further 25%. This tax relief can be claimed from HRMC from any donor that supplies their contact details and makes a declaration, as a UK tax payer. The Donation Station is designed to encourage and secure this additional fundraising income easily, through simple reports that can be downloaded and submitted to HMRC as part of a Gift Aid claim.
