Why we collect information

To deliver the best service possible allowing accessibility to our town for people with mobility needs and to be a supplier of related products.

By understanding more about how people use the information and services we provide, we can improve how we communicate the most important messages that you need to hear.

To save money

We never do anything without carefully considering how much it costs. Collecting information about you and what grabs your attention, and comparing it to others, allows us to work out the most efficient way to do things.

What information we collect, how we collect it and what we use it for

We collect information every time you interact with us. The type and quantity of information we collect and how we use it depends on why you are providing it.  For the most the type of information we will hold on you will be basic personal details only for the purposes of administration and marketing and may include sensitive information regarding any disability.

For example, we may collect information when you:

  • Become a member of Redhill Shopmobility
  • Participate in an event
  • Call in to the shop to make an enquiry
  • Make a donation to us
  • Purchase something from our shop
  • Respond to our mailings
  • Request information from us
  • Volunteer with us
  • Make comments on message boards or discussion forums
  • Contact us or become involved with us in any other way than as stated above

The information we may collect from the above interactions may include, but is not limited to:

  • Your name, address, telephone number, mobile number and/or email address, along with your preferences as to how we should contact you in the future
  • Financial and credit card information which you give to us, including your gift aid status
  • Information you enter onto our website
  • Records of any donation history and correspondence with us
  • Information regarding your condition. As this is sensitive personal information, we will only collect this with your explicit consent.
  • Details of your visit to the website, including technical information such as the IP address you use to access the website, your browser type and version
  • Information you share with independent event organisers, for example the London Marathon or fundraising sites like JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving. These independent third parties will only do so when you have indicated that you wish to support Redhill Shopmobility with your consent.
  • In addition to information you give us directly, we may also collect information about you from publicly available sources.

We will mainly use the data we collect to:

  • Administer your membership
  • Provide you with the services, products or information you asked for – for example product information
  • Fundraising including administering any donation, including processing gift aid
  • Keep a record of your relationship with us
  • Analyse the personal information we collect about you and use publicly available information to better understand your interests, preferences so that we can contact you more effectively
  • Manage your communication preferences, including marketing preferences
  • Understand how we can improve our services, products or information
  • Carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into by you.


We make it easy for you to tell us how you want us to communicate, in a way that suits you. Our communications have clear marketing preference questions and we include information on how to opt out when we send you marketing or fundraising materials. If you don’t want to hear from us, that’s fine. Just tell us so when you provide your data or contact us on 01737 772718.


Where you have provided us with your telephone number, please note that we may use that telephone number to call you. If you are a member this will only be regarding the administration of your membership. If you have already told us you prefer not to receive telephone calls from us then we will not call you.

We may use desk research, profiling and screening techniques to analyse your personal information to create a profile of your interests and preferences so that we can contact you with information relevant to you or to help us place more relevance on the services we offer others. We may make use of additional information about you, including geo- demographic information and measures of affluence, when it is available from third party sources. We may on occasion use third party suppliers to undertake these activities on our behalf and provide them with your information to the extent required.

Such information is compiled using publicly available data about you, for example addresses, listed Directorships, social media posts, newspaper articles or typical earnings in a given industry. This helps us understand the background of the people who do or may support us and helps us to make appropriate adjustments if any to the products we supply.

We will never contact children except where we’ve had parental permission to do so.

When we’re seeing what people do online like this, we’re using cookies. Accepting cookies from us helps direct more funds into support and research. If you don’t want cookies, you can set your browser to notify you when you receive one, then choose to decline it.

If you are a member we will only contact you about your membership or any fundraising if we have your express consent.
