Who are we?


One In AMillion is a Bradford based charity that engages predominantly with disadvantaged children and young people, through Sports, the Arts and Enterprise. Our ‘Hub and Spoke’ model enables us to use formal and informal education as a delivery mechanism to break the cycles of deprivation over their young lives, valuing and celebrating their uniqueness, and letting them know they are ‘one in a million’.


One In A Million consists of three entities:


  • One In A Million (Sports) known as the Charity. Company registration: 6382156, charity registration no.: 1122573. Incorporated on 26th September 2007.

How do we collect information from you?


We gather information about you when you use our website or you interact with us, for example when you contact us about our work in the community, for information about our Free School or sign up to receive news and events updates. We also collect information from you when you make a donation, sign up to an event, apply to become a volunteer, or submit a job vacancy application.


Sometimes, when you support or fundraise for us through another organisation (for example Just Giving), information may be shared with us. You should check their privacy policy when you provide your information to understand fully how it will be processed. When you use social media (for example Facebook or Twitter), you may share information with us, so please check your profile settings and their privacy policy.

We also need to collect certain information from you in order to process gift aid.

We want to ensure you can continue with us in making a difference to the children and young people we support.  Of course it’s your choice, but if you do not provide your information to us, this may mean that we are unable to continue keeping you updated with relevant ways to support our organisation.

What type of information do we collect?

The personal information we collect from you may include your name, address, telephone number, email address, IP Address, and information on, which pages on our website you view and when.


If you make a donation online, your card information is not held by us – it is collected by a separate company who are our third-party payment processors. They are committed to the secure online capture and processing of card transactions. The card information will only be used to process the payment.


In some circumstances, we may need to collect sensitive personal information concerning your health and wellbeing. As an example, if you participate in one of our fundraising events (such as a one of our summer walks), we may ask if you have any health conditions that we need to be aware of. Where we collect this information, we will treat it with extra care and only for the purpose we tell you about. Likewise, your information will always be processed in accordance with this Privacy Policy, and all details that you provide us with will be kept secure, and held for no longer than necessary.

How is your information used?


We may use your information to:

  • Keep you updated with information, which may be of interest, including campaigns, appeals, promotions, events, quarterly magazine, job applications and volunteer opportunities.
  • Seek your views or comments on the services and delivery we provide.
  • Handle a donation that you have made.
  • Provide you with information and support at any activities or fundraising events that you participate in, for example our sponsored walks.
  • Carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into by you and us.
  • Deal with entries into a competition/auction.
  • Let you know about any changes to our services.
  • Handle a job or volunteer application.

We will regularly review how long we hold onto your personal information. We are required to hold some types of information to fulfil our legal obligations (for example for the collection of gift aid). However, we will only ever hold your personal information on our systems for as long as necessary (or as long as set out in any contract you hold with us).

We will only ever use your information for the purpose we told you when you originally provided it. As a broad example, if you apply for a job vacancy, your details will only be used for recruitment purposes – it will not be used for marketing purposes.

The legal basis that we rely on for processing your information will depend on the circumstances in which it is being collected and used. However, in most cases, it will fall into one of the following categories:

  • Where you have provided your consent for us to use your data in the way that we have explained. For example, we will always ask consent before sending you e-mails or text messages about our work (i.e. our quarterly magazine).
  • Where we need to process your information to carry out our legal obligations, such as processing gift aid.
  • Where the processing is necessary to carry out the performance of a contract, such as processing a donation.
  • Where we have a legitimate reason to process your information in order to support our work with children and young people across our district. This includes providing you with information that we feel would be of interest to you, would be reasonably expectedand not intrusive. For example, if you have recently participated in an OIAM event, we may feel that you would be interested in a similar event in the future. We may therefore, send this information to you by email, post, or contact you by telephone. You can ask us to stop providing you with this information at any time, and we have explained more about legitimate interests below.
  • Broadly speaking, legitimate interests means we may process your personal information where we have a genuine and legitimate reason, and are not harming any of your rights or interests.
  • When we process your information for our legitimate interests, we will always consider and balance any potential impact on your rights. As such, we will never use your information for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you.
  • It is always your choice whether you want to receive information from us, and you can opt-out at any time by contacting us using the details in the ‘Your Choices’ section of this policy.


Who has access to your information?

We will never sell or rent your information to third parties (for example another charity). We will never share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.

Third-party data processors working on our behalf: We may pass your information to a third party who works on our behalf to provide you with services. For example, so that we can send you email newsletters, we have to pass your name and email address onto an email software company, which specialises in sending email newsletters. When we use these organisations, we provide them with only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service. Likewise, we have contracts in place that means they must keep your information secure and not use it for their own marketing purposes. We may, however, be required to release your information due to a court order, or for the purposes of the prevention of fraud or other crime.

When you make a donation, it will be processed by a third-party payment processor, who specialises in the online gathering and processing of card transactions. If you have any questions regarding secure transactions, (for example Just Giving), please contact us.


We will always take steps to ensure that your privacy continues to be protected.

It takes a community to raise a child and collectively with all of us playing our part we can make a difference to the children and young people we work with.  We would love you to continue to play your part with us and you have full control over whether or not you wish to receive information from us.


On the form on which we collect your information, you can tick the relevant boxes that relate to our organisation and you choose whether you want to receive marketing communications from us (such as Fundraising and Volunteer opportunities, Community and Free School news, quarterly magazine, event updates etc). We will always tell you why and how the information will be used.

You also have the right to object to other processing that we may carry out. You can do this by writing, e-mailing or telephoning us using the details above. However, please bear in mind that this may affect our ability to carry out tasks for your benefit. For example, if you object to us processing your information for a job vacancy application, this may mean we are unable to process your application.

When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely.  Although this information will be sent by a secure connection, information sent over the internet can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.

You have the right to make a complaint about how we (or any third parties) use your personal data. As a local charity, we encourage people to come forward with any suggestions and queries, and welcome people challenging us if they feel that the use of their information is unfair, misleading or inappropriate.
