Information gathering and usage

Here are the types of personal information we might collect from you. If you would like more information about how we process your data, please email us at

i) Volunteering

For every volunteer application submitted to us, we request the name, email address, phone number and address of the applicant. We store this information in order to identify individuals who applied to volunteer, contact applicants as and when necessary throughout the application process (for example to inform applicants of their application’s outcome) and to keep accurate records of past volunteer recruitment.

We also consult referees for volunteer applications and we store the names and email address of the applicant’s chosen referees, in order to contact these referees and so that we may attribute their feedback correctly. This information will be requested as part of the application and you will ensure that you have your referees’ consent to provide their contact information before sharing such information with us.

Successful applicants will be contacted as necessary with information related and relevant to the volunteering role, unless we are advised otherwise by the volunteer, or their volunteering position is terminated. Volunteers can withdraw at any time by emailing us at

ii) Friends of Two Temple Place Membership

For every Friends Membership application submitted to us, we request the name, email address, phone number, address of the applicant and gift aid status. We store this information in order to identify individuals who applied to become Friends, inform applicants of their membership application outcome, and contact Friends as and when necessary throughout their subscription period with details of events, opportunities and information relevant to their membership.

Applicants may also choose to include additional personal information in their application form (including bank name, account number, sort code) which we request if the applicant opts to pay their annual subscription by Banker’s Order. This information will be used to set up a Banker’s Order with the applicant’s bank. This information will be kept until the first payment has been received. Thereafter bank details will be removed from our system and any paper record destroyed.

Online donation payments are processed using a third party platform, Stripe.

iv) Two Temple Place mailing list

We keep a record of the name and email address of every member of our mailing list. This helps us identify mailing list members and enables us to contact them.

This helps us judge what is of interest to them, which in turn affects our decisions about what we email them about in future.

Members can unsubscribe from this mailing list at any time by emailing us at with the word “unsubscribe” in the body or subject line of the email.

v) What’s on

Event bookings are taken using the third-party online platform Eventbrite which gathers bookings directly from those interested in attending. Eventbrite then transfers this information to us. We track event bookings to enable us to identify those individuals who have chosen to attend, and to ensure that our events are neither under- nor over-booked. The regulations of the building in which we operate also requires that all attendees to events be checked in by name off a guest list.

vi) Job applications

Processing your personal data and obtaining your consent

We obtain your consent to process your personal data where we are required to do so by applicable law – for example, where we want to use your contact details for marketing purposes or where the personal data we are collecting from you is “sensitive” and we are not lawfully permitted to process your personal data on any other legal grounds. Where we rely on your consent for processing your personal data, you may withdraw your consent to this processing at any time, by contacting us by email at  Please note, however, that withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on the consent you gave prior to withdrawal.

Where we process your personal data for direct marketing purposes, we will log any objection you make, stop processing your data for direct marketing purposes, and we will not contact you again.

There may be instances where we process your personal data for our legitimate interests or on the basis of other lawful grounds (i.e., because we have established a relationship with you and need to process your personal data in order to provide you with the information and/or services you have requested), without having obtained your consent. We do not seek your consent in such cases largely so that we can provide you with services in an efficient way (or where in some cases it might not be possible for us to seek your consent because we must process personal data, for example, for the detection of fraud). Before processing your personal data, we will consider your rights and freedoms and will only commence such processing where we do not think your rights will be infringed.

Such legitimate interests include the processing and storage of personal data provided in connection with applications for volunteering and Friends membership, private hire clients and suppliers, and job applications we receive.

Storage of your information

All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers at Two Temple Place, London, WC2R 3BD, and 11-21 Paul Street, London EC2A 4JU. We maintain appropriate administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect against loss, misuse or unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction of your personal information in accordance with local legislation where applicable.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to us via our website or by email; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to prevent unauthorized access.

Period for which we store your personal data

We only store your personal data for as long as we require it in order to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected or provided to us (unless a legal obligation requires us to keep it for longer).

Transfers of your information

We limit access to personal data we collect about you to our employees and service providers who we reasonably believe need to have access to your information to provide you with the information or services you request from us. Such third parties may include our approved sub-contractors, business partners, suppliers, or other third-party organizations providing administrative, IT or other services to us.

Where we share information, these entities may aggregate your personal data that they receive from us with other personal data that they already hold about you.

We will also disclose your personal information to third parties if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with a legal obligation, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Two Temple Place, The Bulldog Trust, our customers, or others.

If we transfer your personal information we will always do so under strict conditions of confidentiality and with appropriate security safeguards.

Links to external content

We include links to third party websites in our correspondence to you via email and on our website. By clicking on a link you will be redirected to a third party’s site which is not necessarily affiliated with Two Temple Place. Any personal data you provide to these third parties via their websites will be handled by the third party in accordance with their own privacy policy, not Two Temple Place’s. Two Temple Place does not accept any responsibility for the processing of your personal data by a third party. Some of these third parties are based outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) where data protection laws may not provide the same level of protection for your personal data as provided for under European data protection laws.

Social media sites

We operate a number of social media pages (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram). Although this policy covers how we will use any data collected from those pages it does not cover how the providers of social media websites will use your information. Please ensure you read the privacy policy of the social media website before sharing data and make use of the privacy settings and reporting mechanisms to control how your data is used.

Data we receive from third parties

As described above, we use third parties to help us provide our services. In some cases, you will be directed to a third party online platform where your personal data will be collected on our behalf and provided to us. For example, we use Eventbrite to collect RSVPs and bookings for events. In this case, the third party provider will subsequently transfer to us the personal data you provide. This data will only be stored for as long as we require it, and will be handled in accordance with data protection laws and in compliance with the principles set out in this policy.
