Privacy Policy



Ronald McDonald House Charities (UK) referred to in this policy as "we", "us" or "our", are pleased to provide information to all visitors about our online privacy policy. Please be assured that we use our best efforts to protect the privacy of visitors to this web site.

We only gather personal information, such as first and last names, addresses and email addresses, Facebook profile name and Google user name, when voluntarily submitted by you. For example, personal information may be collected from you when you sign up for our newsletter, provide us with a donation, or participate in an online promotion.

We may share personal information with certain selected companies. Those selected companies are either our partners who perform a function or are agencies and suppliers whom we have retained to assist us to more effectively fulfil our works, collect donations, provide technical assistance and support and perform other functions to support our activities.

All selected companies may have access to personal information if needed to perform such functions, but will only be permitted by us to use such personal information for the purpose of performing that function (which may include one to which you have expressly given your consent) and not for any other purpose.

In all cases, any use of your personal information by any such party which use has been instigated by us (as opposed, for example, to a promotional partner), will comply with this policy and with data protection legislation.

Occasionally, with your permission and depending on the purpose for and context in which you gave that permission, we may share personal information with McDonald’s Corporation and/or its subsidiaries. We will not do this without your consent.

We will only send you information and news about us, for example, our e-newsletter or a brochure if you have elected to receive such information. However, in every case, if you do not elect to receive such communications or if you elect to discontinue receiving them, then we will not send or will cease sending them to you. Also, we reserve the right to use or disclose any information as needed to satisfy any law, regulation or legal request, to protect the integrity of the site, to fulfil your requests, or to cooperate in any law enforcement or regulatory investigation. Save for this and as detailed above, we do not sell, transfer or disclose personal information we have collected from you in connection with our web site activities, to third parties.

We may offer links to sites that are not operated by RMHC. If you visit one of these linked sites, you should review their privacy and other policies. We are not responsible for the policies and practices of other companies.

We may transfer the data that we collect from you to a destination outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). By submitting your personal data to us, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing.

Where we know or have reason to believe a child is under 12 our policy is not to collect personal information from them unless for a specific activity where the child's parent or guardian has first provided written consent to that specific activity.

Where we know or have reason to believe a child is under 16 we will not collect (nor encourage any child to give) more detailed information, than is needed by us to facilitate that child's selected activities, without first obtaining the written consent of a parent or guardian.

Our policy is that our online activities will not generally involve the publishing of any personal data relating to a child under 16 on our web site without that child’s parent’s or guardian’s written consent.

We urge parents to regularly monitor and supervise their children's online activities.

From time to time, it may be necessary for us to change this privacy policy, so we suggest that you check here periodically. Rest assured, however, that any changes will not be retrospectively applied and will not alter how we handle previously collected information.

You are in control of all personal information you provide to us online. If at any time you have any questions about our Internet Privacy Policy, you would like to correct the personal information we have about you or your child or if you would like to change your preferences for contacts from us, you can let us know by contacting us at the postal address listed below. In order to review any personal information we have about you or to ask us to delete that information or to stop further use of the information, please contact us through the address listed below. If you would like to unsubscribe from our email list, please use the unsubscribe link on our newsletter emails or contact us through the postal address listed below.
