Privacy Policy

  1. Introduction

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and was designed to harmonise data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens’ data privacy and to reshape the way organisations across the region approach data privacy. EU GDPR is the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on 25th May 2018 and replaced our existing Data protection law in the UK. It affects any organisation which holds and processes data relating to European citizens

Aid to Church in Need (ACN UK) is committed to conducting its business in accordance with all applicable Data Protection laws and regulations and in line with the highest standards of ethical conduct. This policy sets forth the expected conduct of ACN UK’s Employees and Third Parties in relation to the collection, use, retention, transfer, disclosure and destruction of any Personal Data belonging to ACN UK’s Contact (i.e. the Data Subject/benefactor).

ACN UK, as a Data Controller, is responsible for ensuring compliance with the Data Protection requirements outlined in this policy

ACN UK’s leadership is fully committed to ensuring continued and effective implementation of this policy and expects all ACN UK Employees and Third Parties to share in this commitment. Any breach of this policy will be taken seriously and may result in disciplinary action or business sanction. This policy has been approved by ACN UK’s Data Protection Officer.

  1. Who we are?

Aid to the Church in Need is an international Catholic charity which supports the Church around the world – particularly where it experiences suffering and persecution. Our projects helping Catholic, Orthodox and other Christian communities and sometimes minority faiths is ‘niche’ and of limited interest to the wider general public. Catholic projects worldwide tend not to attract government funding so without support from the Catholic and Christian community in the UK and around the world, our project partners would not receive the prayer, pastoral and practical help and advocacy they require. A strong example of this is ACN’s support for Christians in Iraq who, for over six years have relied on ACN and other faith-based organisations to survive genocide, due to the inaction and indifference of the international community. It is in the interests of the people we help that we maintain a wide pool of support from within the Christian community and from other sympathetic sources.

A further ACN role is to support and encourage UK Christians in their faith and by providing inspirational examples from the suffering Church, prayer material and relevant faith-supporting trading products, we offer a service to UK Catholics and Christians.

Many are already familiar with our work due to the involvement of their own parishes and/or through ACN UK material carried in the Catholic and Christian media. Indeed, many ACN benefactors consider themselves ‘members’ who receive faith-based benefits from their relationship with us. These include specialist news, information and prayer material, not readily available in the secular press.

  1. How do we store your Data?

Aid to Church in Need is committed to keeping your personal information safe and secure and we have security policies and technical measures in place to help protect your information. We will put in place procedures and technologies to maintain the security of all personal data from the point of collection to the point of for as long as we hold your data. Personal data will only be transferred to a third party service provider company if they are approved by us and agree to comply with these procedures and policies, or if they put in place adequate security measures.

All our employees who process data are obliged to comply with our strict information security procedures. Electronic data communication, comprising personal data is always encrypted so that it is not read by anyone except the person responsible for the data.


ACN (UK) data is stored on ACN servers based in Belgium and managed by ACN International’s IID Department who oversee the Content Management Systems of ACN’s offices around the world to maintain data and results reporting integrity. They have an additional responsibility for overseeing Data Protection standards across all offices. Your personal data is held on secure servers operated by ACN UK and the ACN international Help Desk. Paper files are stored and kept in a secured filing system and locked all the time except in time of in need for a reference by a member of a staff. For the purpose of guaranteeing confidentiality we have taken permanent measures as follows:

  • electronic access control system,
  • security doors and windows,
  • alarm system,
  • video surveillance,
  • special protection of the server room,
  • individual log-ins and password procedures,
  • additional log-ins for certain applications,
  • automatic locking for the clients (Timeout),
  • managing permissions,
  • documentation of permissions, and
  • many other measures.

Active data sets used for our mailing programme of ten mailings a year are cleaned regularly using industry standard programmes.

In early 2018, ACN’s full data set was cleaned by One Post with the aim of providing two definitive Usable and Unusable data files.


Due to ACN (UK)’s policy of not purchasing, swopping or sharing data and given the limited data Aid to the Church in Need therefore has access to, data deemed ‘unusable’ will be flagged and made unusable for the purposes of mailing or future contact but available for analysis and as a historical record. ACN’s Reactivation experience shows that due the organic nature of our data capture and because lapsed benefactors may contribute anonymously at Parish Appeals or events and read about us in the Catholic press, our reactivation response rates are unusually high against charity sector benchmarks. For this reason and because Catholics and Christians have a life-long affiliation to their faith and related issues, our lapsed and deeply lapsed data continues to hold value for us. Therefore, ACN’s policy is to hold data longer than other charities might.

Following the 2018 data clean, benefactor records with a last gift date of 25 years plus will be destroyed and annually thereafter. Within the usable data set, active and reactivation data will be held for ACN’s mailing programme. With the exception of Always Mail records, data will be segmented by date of last gift. Regarding Gone Away notifications. Upon the second notification, these records will be flagged as unusable.

  1. Lawful Basis for processing your personal information

ACN will process personal data in line with the following principles:

  • where it is necessary for us to fulfil a contract with you
  • with your consent
  • when it is in our legitimate interest

Under Article 6 of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) our lawful basis for processing and holding personal information is ‘legitimate interest’ as it is necessary for ACN to use this information in order to provide you with our services.

According to Art. 9 Sec. 1 GDPR, the processing of sensitive data is generally prohibited. Special categories of personal data (also “sensitive data“) are personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, and the processing of genetic data, biometric data for the purpose of uniquely identifying a natural person, data concerning health or data concerning a natural person’s sex life or sexual orientation.

As a Pontifical Foundation, ACN falls under Article 9 section 2 paragraph (D), which the processing is carried out in the course of its legitimate activities with appropriate safeguards by a religious aim and on conditions that the processing relates solely to the persons who have regular contact with ACN UK in connection with its purpose and that the personal data are not disclosed outside ACN UK without the consent of the data subjects.

When donors fill in their personal data in a donation form presented by an ACN area secretary or appealer, they may hereby also reveal their religious belief. Donating to ACN means donating to a Pontifical Foundation of the Catholic Church, supporting the Catholic faithful and other Christians where they are persecuted, oppressed or in pastoral need“.


As a religious organisation which recruits new benefactors in a very personal way, ACN (UK) has chosen to adopt Legitimate Interest as our approach to GDPR legislation. However, the rights of the benefactor are paramount and ACN (UK) sets out in this document, policies and procedures that allow benefactors to change their contact preferences or stop hearing from us completely.

Charities are required to undertake a ‘balancing’ assessment to ensure that the needs of the charity do not override the rights of the benefactor. Copies of the ACN (UK)’s marketing balancing assessment may be obtained from the ACN UK’s national office. Most ACN (UK) benefactors are recruited via face-to-face via Appeals, Talks and Events. Many are already familiar with our work due to the involvement of their own parishes and/or through ACN (UK) material carried in the Catholic and Christian media. Indeed, many ACN benefactors consider themselves ‘members’ who receive faith-based benefits from their relationship with us. These include specialist news, information and prayer material, not readily available in the secular press.

As a religious charity we believe ourselves to have a legitimate interest in informing and up-dating Catholics and Christians on the situation facing our faith today. In turn, our benefactors, who have a life-long commitment to their faith, are legitimately interested in the niche information and faith-enhancing material we provide and which they are unlikely to get elsewhere. Benefactors would therefore reasonably expect that we would process their data to provide them with such information if they have previously established a relationship with the charity.  Never-the-less with a view to protecting our benefactors’ interests and balancing these with our legitimate interest we will always aim to consider safeguards to reduce the impact on their interests and their privacy.
