The National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) has recently published a report on regulating fundraising and has set out a number of proposals regarding data protection in the fundraising sphere. The NCVO acknowledged the potential for a loss of public trust and confidence in charities as a result of the practices uncovered and has encouraged charities to re-establish their relationship with donors by committing to review the use of donor’s personal data. The report also recommends that the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) produces specific guidance on the regulatory approach it will take in the context of charities and fundraising, in particular in relation to informed consent, the period for which consent can be said to be valid and the approach to enforcement where wrongdoing is uncovered. In a published statement, ICO has welcomed the report and noted that it would be producing further guidance on informed consent for fundraising purposes and the timescale that consent is valid.
