Dallaglio RugbyWorks promises to respect and look after all personal data you share with us, or that we get from other organisations. We will always keep it safe. We aim to be clear when we collect your data about what we’ll use it for, and not do anything you wouldn’t reasonably expect. We will never sell your personal data to other organisations, and will only ever share it in appropriate, legal or exceptional circumstances. See section 4 to find out more.
Developing a better understanding of our supporters through their personal data means we can make better decisions, fundraise more efficiently and, ultimately help us reach our goal of supporting the young people on the Dallaglio RugbyWorks programme into sustained, education, employment or training.
We are moving to an ‘opt-in only’ communication policy. This means that we will only send marketing communications to you if you’ve explicitly stated that you want us too. We’ll aslo ask you what you’re interested in and how you want us to contact you.

You may have provided permission for a company or organisation to share your data with third parties, including charities. This could be when you buy a product or service or register for an online competition.

- When we collect it as you use our WEBSITES
Like most websites, we use “cookies” to help us make our site, and the way you use it better. Cookies mean that a website will remember you. They’re small text files that sites transfer to your computer (or phone or tablet). They make interacting with a website faster and easier – for example by automatically filling your name and address in text fields.
As well as this, cookies can tell us the type of device you’re using to access our website and the settings on that device may provide us with information including what type of device it is, what operating system you’re using, what your device settings are, and why a crash has happened. This information helps us understand how people are using our website and shows us how to make it better.
Your device manufacturer or operating system provider will have more details about what information your device makes available to us.
