Disclaimer and Privacy Policy

We, the Maurice Wohl Charitable Foundation (Charity no. 244519) and the Maurice and Vivienne Wohl Philanthropic Foundation (Charity no. 1177003), together, “the Wohl Legacy” may collect and process personal data about you in your capacity as a trustee, officer, contractor or employee of a charity that has applied to us for a grant.

We are committed to being transparent about how we collect and use that data and to meeting our obligations under the EU General Data Protection Regulation and the Data Protection Act 2018.

What information do we collect about you and why?
Personal data includes (but isn’t limited to) your name, email address and telephone number, and any personal information you provide to us that is relevant and necessary for us to collect and process in the course of operating the Wohl Legacy.

You may change or request deletion of your data at any time in writing, subject to any overriding legal obligation that we may have for its retention.  We do not, and never would, profile your personal data; nor would we ever sell your personal data to a third party.

The Wohl Legacy has a legitimate interest in processing the above personal data because it is relevant to our operations as grant making foundations.  We may use it for internal management purposes, to contact you about any grant application that has been made, and to inform you of events led by the Wohl Legacy that we believe may be of interest to you. We will also use it to comply with applicable laws, regulations and court orders, and to obtain advice from our professional advisors.

Who has access to your personal data?
Your personal data will be shared internally with employees and trustees of the Wohl Legacy. We may also share your personal data with consultants of the Wohl Legacy that are located in the UK and in Israel. Transfers of your personal data to Israel will be carried out on the basis of the adequacy decision granted to Israel by the Commission.  On occasion we may also need to share your personal data with our professional advisors, such as lawyers and accountants.

For how long does the Wohl Legacy keep data?
The Wohl Legacy will not keep your personal data for longer than necessary for the purposes of operating the foundations.  If you are not happy with this, please see below for an explanation of your rights.
