Who are we?

Every Child Our Future is an educational charity based in Jersey, Channel Islands, which supports primary school children who are struggling with literacy and numeracy. We provide extra support for those children through three Reading Recovery teachers and through recruiting volunteers to go in to local schools and read with children. We are a registered charity in Jersey (registration number 120700) and also registered with the Association of Jersey Charities (registration number AJC 466).

How do we collect information from you?

We obtain information about you when you contact us through our website, email, directly in person, by telephone or by post. You may contact us to access our programmes, to obtain information, to make a donation, or to volunteer.

As a supporter or volunteer, the personal information we collect will include your name, address, email address, telephone number, DOB, place of work and DBS certificate number. If you are a community volunteer we will also hold your referees’ information and contact details. Where volunteers provide us with personal information on their referees we will assume, (and by signing their application form, volunteers confirm) that they have obtained permission to supply us with this information and we will hold that information for as long as we hold information on the relevant volunteer. If you make a donation, we will then hold the information regarding your donation.

We may use your information to:

  • process a donation that you intend to make or have made;
  • process information requests that you have submitted;

  • contact you in connection with maintenance or improvement of our governance;
  • to pass on to government and other agencies and organisations who we work with in connection with our programmes.

We review our retention periods for personal information on a regular basis. We are legally required to hold some types of information to fulfil our statutory obligations.

For any individual accessing our services and volunteering for us we will hold your personal information on our systems for a maximum of 1 year from the date of discharge from our services. Following this we will delete and destroy all your details on our files.

Who has access to your information?

Your information is disclosed only to the school you are volunteering in, unless there are safeguarding concerns for a child’s safety. In this situation, they will be acting as a data controller of your information and therefore we advise you to read their Privacy Policy. Every Child Our Future acts as the information controller and works with the Bosdet Foundation, who are the data processors. Bosdet securely store and manage your information on a password protected computer on a protected database with virus software installed.

However, when we give your contact details to the school, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own direct marketing purposes.

In the case of donors, supporters and volunteers, we may pass your information to government and other agencies and organisations who we work with in connection with our programmes. We disclose only the personal information that is necessary for this purpose and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure.

Please be reassured that we will not release your information to third parties, beyond the schools, for their own direct promotional purposes; unless you have requested us to do so; or we are required to do so by law. For example: a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.

Your choices

We will not contact you for promotional purposes by email, phone or text message unless you have given your prior consent. We will not contact you for promotional purposes by post if you have indicated that you do not wish to be contacted. You can change your promotional preferences at any time by contacting us by email: info@everychild.org.je or phone: 01534 497035

Under the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018 all individuals have the right to have their personal data erased. Individuals can make a request for erasure verbally or in writing and we will respond to this request within one month. The right is not absolute and our legal obligations supersede above the right to be forgotten.
