Your name, address and payment account details will be made available to our third party payment services provider for the purpose of processing donations.  To ensure that your payment card or PayPal account is not being used without your consent, our third party payment services provider will validate your name, address and other personal information supplied by you during the payment process against appropriate third party databases.  By making a donation you consent to such checks being made and to your data being transferred to the third party payment services provider.   We will require our third party payment services provider to protect your information in accordance with this privacy statement and the law.
