OM’s aim to grow vibrant communities of Jesus followers among the least reached is dependent on God’s provision and made possible thanks to the generosity of supporters. Developing the best possible understanding of these supporters is crucial in making our fundraising efforts as relevant as they can possibly be. We want to be good stewards of the faithful supporters God has blessed OM with.

We will research our supporters using publicly available information and what they have told us so that we can tailor any invitations we make to reflect their specific interests in OM’s mission, and at an appropriate level.

Transformational giving is an important part of our engagement activity. We will use public information to identify individuals who we believe may have the interest and capacity to make a gift of this nature.  In particular:

  • We may carry out desk and online research. This involves reviewing sources of publicly available information, such as business websites, Companies House and Linked-In to build up a picture of interests and preferences.
  • We may also use a trusted third-party partner to automate some of this work by screening your name and address details against databases built up from publicly available information. The third party doing this work will only use your data to help us with our fundraising. It cannot use your data for any other purposes. We never share any of your financial transactions with OM UK with this third party.

Where this activity is being undertaken for potential new supporters with whom OM has no previous relationship, we will provide the individual with a link to this Privacy Notice as part of our engagement.

You can opt out of your data being used for research at any time or ask for an explanation of what we do by emailing [email protected]  or by writing to our Data Protection team at The Quinta, Weston Rhyn, Oswestry, Shropshire, SY10 7LT, or call us on 01691 773388.
