Privacy Statement

We are committed to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of your personal information and we undertake to ensure that all personal information in our possession is processed in accordance with the principles of the UK Data Protection Act 1998

Data Controller

The Data Controller is Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation. The Peace Foundation is registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office, who defines the purposes for which we can lawfully collect and process personal information.

Who we are:

The Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation is a charity setup in 1995 by Tim’s parents Colin and Wendy Parry in memory in Tim and Johnathan Ball, who were killed by the IRA bombing of Warrington in 1993. Colin and Wendy’s commitment to keep the boys’ names alive and help future victims of violent extremism and acts of terror, led to them creating a lasting memorial, known as the Peace Centre.

What we do

The Peace Foundation provides programmes to address serious conflicts within schools or communities locally, nationally and internationally. Recently we have produced a DVD and teachers pack tackling extremism, which will be delivered in every school within the UK. We have a portfolio of projects, products, and services. Our work has three components: prevention, resolution and response.

  4. Measure the effectiveness of our marketing
  5. Report to government bodies and other stakeholders

The Peace Foundation offers a range of services and products where you will have provided information to us. We will use this information:

  • to administer donations made by you or on your behalf
  • to supply you with goods or services ordered from us
  1. To communicate with you

There are a number of ways that we may communicate with you. We use information you have provided to:

  1. To measure the effectiveness of marketing

Where we advertise upcoming conferences or events on the internet, we use cookies and other technologies, such as pixel tags and tracking links, to help measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns.

  1. To report to government bodies and stakeholders

We provide anonymised data to government bodies on key statistics, such as participant numbers. Statistics on participants are published in our Annual Report. We also analyse the performance of services and products and provide information to our stakeholders and funders, as part of our on-going relationships with them.


We do not routinely collect data about children under 16. There are a limited number of activities we undertake that require data about children to be collected and held, for example, safeguarding reports. Information about children is stored securely, can only be accessed by staff with a current Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check and is destroyed as soon as it is no longer needed. If we need to collect information from children, other than in the circumstances described above, we will ensure that such information is handled in accordance with this notice.

Disclosing your personal data to third parties

Any personal information you provide to us and which we otherwise collect will be shared with the Peace Foundation wholly-owned affiliates and with other organisations which provide services to us. We will only disclose your information to companies who act as “data processors” on our behalf, some of whom may be outside the UK/EEA. We will never sell your personal information to any third-party organisation.

Personal data we receive from other sources

We may collect personal data you have provided to other third-parties with which we work to help us better understand and provide services to our clients and supporters.

Storing your personal data

The Peace Foundation’s preference is that data we collect from you is stored in the UK/EEA

(European Economic Area). Where your data is transferred and stored outside the UK/EEA, we will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that any data processor we use provides an adequate level of protection for your data.

Personal data retention periods

Records should be kept for as long as they are needed to meet the Foundation’s operational needs, together with legal and regulatory requirements.

We assess our records to:

  • determine their value as a source of information about the Foundation, its operations, relationships and environment,
  • assess their importance as evidence of business activities and decisions
  • establish whether there are any legal or regulatory retention requirements

Data will also be retained, as per the requirements of various funders; some require it to be stored for five/seven years, others for three years.

A review will be carried out every April to determine what data needs to be destroyed.

Direct marketing

You may indicate your preference for receiving direct marketing from us or any partner organisations with whom we may work and whose goods or services we think may be of interest to you. You will be given the opportunity to indicate that you no longer wish to receive our direct marketing material or that sent by third parties on our behalf each time we contact you, whenever you log into our services or make a payment to us. Once properly notified by you, we will take steps to stop using your information in this way.

Accessing your personal data

You have the right to ask in writing for a copy of the information we hold about you, to find out for which purposes it is being processed, to whom it may be disclosed, and to correct any inaccuracies. You should make your request for access to your personal information in writing to the Peace Foundation’s Head of Operations, The Peace Centre, Peace Drive, Great Sankey, Warrington, WA5 IHQ.
