It provides a legal framework for regulating the information relationship with the A.M. Qattan Foundation audiences, staff, contractors, beneficiaries, and everyone who imparts personal information to the Foundation. It sets out the details of the A.M.

How we update, screen and analyse your information


We review records of supporters to ensure your data is as accurate as possible. We may consult alternative sources in order to make these checks, such as:

  • Reviewing employment information that you have made publicly available via social media  

                (we might do this when researching potential speakers for events for example);

  • Newspaper articles, publications and company websites;
  • Any other publicly available sources.
  • Where we appoint an external party to undertake a screening of information, any such arrangements will be subject to a formal agreement between the A.M. Qattan Foundation/ The Mosaic Rooms and that organisation, to protect the security of your data.

Who we might share your information with:


We do not disclose personal data to any third parties or external organisations, other than data processors carrying out work on our behalf. Any such companies are acting as approved data processors for us and we retain full responsibility for your personal data. Data processors will act only on our instructions.

We may occasionally need to transfer your personal information overseas, for instance to our bulk email distributor, MailChimp through which we send newsletters and event invites. Where this is necessary, this may be to countries or territories around the world. We are required to ensure any transfers of data will be done securely, in accordance with best practice, and in compliance with the Data Protection Act 1998, and the Data Protection Act 2018.

Your data will not be passed to any third party for any other purpose, and your data will never be sold.

How can I access the information about me, and correction of information?

You can ask us if we are keeping any personal data about you and you can also request to receive a copy of that personal data – this is called a Subject Access Request.

To make a Subject Access Request you will need to provide adequate proof of identity such as a copy of your passport or driving licence before your request can be processed. Please try to be as clear as possible about the information you are seeking.

Once we have received your Subject Access Request, and proof of identity, you will receive a response from us within 40 days and you will be able to get copies of information we hold on you.
