Who we are

We are Age UK Exeter, whose office is at 138 Cowick Street, Exeter, EX4 1HS.  We have activities throughout Exeter but all are part of our organisation.

Age UK Exeter is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy and security.  Whenever you provide us with your personal information we will treat that information in accordance with this statement, our terms and conditions and current data protection legislation.

Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it.  This statement may change from time to time, so please check this page periodically.

Who will see your personal data


  • We promise not to share your details with any other organisation unless there are immediate concerns about potential abuse or physical harm or where an indictable offence may have been committed.  Then, and only then, we may share details with the relevant agencies upon the authorisation of the Chief Executive (or other senior manager) of Age UK Exeter. 

In providing assistance through our Information & Advice Service we may need to contact other agencies on your behalf – your signed authorisation will always be sought before we do this.

  • We will never give your data away or sell it to anyone.


What information we keep and why?


  • We process personal data relating to clients, supporters, staff, volunteers and trustees of our organisation.  This is to allow us to offer services, products and help and guidance to our clients and to be able to keep people up to date with our work and plans.
  • If you are in receipt of one or more of our services we will hold your data for six years after you cease to receive a service.  At this time all paper records will be destroyed and computerised records will be anonymised.
  • If you are a supporter of Age UK Exeter we will hold information about your donations but two years after you stop supporting us or as soon as you withdraw your consent we will anonymise your data.  This means that details of your donations will be kept but your personal data will be deleted.  This is for historical and statistical purposes only and it is not possible to identify an individual from this data.

  • If you use your credit or debit card to make a payment or a donation to us online, your card information is collected by our partner organisation, Blackbaud Merchant Services, who specialise in the secure online capture and processing of credit/debit card transactions.  This information is encrypted and protected with 128 Bit encryption software on SSL.
  • If you use your credit or debit card to make a payment or donation to us either in person or on the telephone, payments are processed in compliance with PCIDSS which is an industry standard for receiving and managing card payments. We are required to annualy comply with their regulations about keeping data secure and we do this by completing the transacations on IPads which are used solely for this purpose and are not connected to any of our other systems.
  • When you give us personal and/or sensitive information we take steps to ensure that it is treated securely and with respect.  Information will be held on one or both of our two databases hosted by our partner organisations, Dizions Ltd and Blackbaud, and we have satisfied ourselves that their practices are compliant with this privacy statement and current data protection legislation.
