Haircutforcharity is committed to protecting your privacy and the confidentiality of any personal information you provide to us. We value transparency and we want you to understand fully why we ask you for personal information and what we’ll do with it. This Policy describes how we collect, use, store and disclose your personal information in connection with your activities on our website. It outlines why you can have confidence that your personal information will be treated lawfully and respectfully. By accessing the Haircutforcharity website, you indicate your acceptance of this Policy (which may be amended from time to time).


The information we collect about you depends on the nature of your interaction(s) with us. However, we’ll only collect personal information that is reasonably necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it’s being collected (e.g. to process a donation, and add your entry to the ‘hairdos’ gallery). Some examples of the information we might collect about you include:

  • Contact details (e.g. name, image, email address)
  • Previous donation history or the amount you’ve donated
  • Information you’ve provided if you’ve contacted us with a question, complaint or enquiry
  • Information about the computer equipment and the version of operating system you’re using
  • The settings of the device you use to visit our Websites

If you make a donation to UK charities through us, you may provide us with credit card details and other information which will allow us to process the transaction. Please note that Haircutforcharity does not store credit card information.

Unsolicited information

If you provide us with unsolicited personal information, which means personal information we receive but have not taken active steps to collect from you, we’ll usually destroy or de-identify the information as soon as practicable (if it’s lawful and reasonable to do so).


Haircutforcharity will take all reasonable steps to ensure the security of all information collected via That means we endeavour to ensure that all information and data is protected from misuse, unauthorised access, modification and disclosure. Your personal information may be stored and maintained in a secure cloud-based environment, which can be accessed only by authorised personnel. Please note that some of these services are hosted by third parties. However, as no data transmission over the internet or information stored on servers accessible through the internet can be guaranteed to be fully secure, like everyone, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you send to us or receive from us online.


Haircutforcharity will never use or disclose your personal information, except in accordance with this Policy, unless you have consented to the use or disclosure by ticking the relevant boxes on the submission form (indicating acceptance of our sharing the information with one or more of our charity partners), or where disclosure is necessary to prevent injury to life or health, to investigate any suspected unlawful activity or where the use or disclosure is required or authorised by law.

We will never sell your personal information to third parties. We may share your information with third parties who process data on our behalf, but only where we place obligations on them in relation to the security of the data and require them to use the data only as we instruct. We may disclose your personal information to social media platforms (including without limitation Facebook), so that the social media platforms may send you advertisements about future Haircutforcharity events and initiatives, and for analytics purposes.
