Privacy Policy

We have created this privacy policy to demonstrate our commitment to the privacy of the users of this website. Please read the following to learn more about our privacy policy, and how we treat personally identifiable information collected from our visitors and users.

What this Privacy Policy Covers

This privacy policy covers our treatment of personally identifiable information collected by Fulham Reach Boat Club.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

You can visit this website without revealing any personal information. However, we need certain personal information if you wish to purchase our products, register for an account, receive newsletters & fundraising information, or use certain other services.

Where required, this information may include your personal contact information and/or your company contact information as well as payment details. We will use this information to reply to your enquiries, to provide you with requested products and services, to set up your member’s account, and to contact you regarding new products and services.


Fundraising is very important for FRBC. We can only continue to deliver opportunities to young people with philanthropic support and we continue this tradition of giving through our fundraising campaigns which provide additional opportunities to young people throughout Hammersmith and Fulham and beyond.

We want to keep you informed about our fundraising in the most appropriate and cost effective ways. To help us do this we may carry out analysis and segmentation of the information we hold and add publicly available information. This may include wealth screening. We undertake due diligence for potential donors. These processes help us to better understand your interests, preferences and the type and level of donation you may be interested in giving. This allows us to make appropriate requests to our supporters, helping us raise more money, more cost effectively, and more respectfully than we otherwise could.

Our fundraising campaigns are managed in-house by permanent FRBC staff and may include direct mail (both postal and electronic), social media, telephone and face-to-face visits. All of our staff and volunteer are well trained and are taught to respond sensitively and appropriately to anyone who may appear vulnerable. We are proud that none of our staff are paid commission on donations they raise.

We do not use external fundraising agencies or external professional fundraisers to ask for donations on our behalf.

We are very grateful for the support of our donors and we like to publish their names on our website to recognise their support and to encourage others to donate. If you donate to FRBC and do not wish your donation to be publicly recognised, you can choose to donate anonymously. This means we will record your donation on our systems, but will not publicly acknowledge or publish your name on our website or other stewardship materials both online and in written publications. We like to publish case studies online and in our print materials, and will always ask for permission from people involved in the case stories before publication. 

Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information

Our website automatically receives and records non-personal information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, cookie information and the page you requested.

We may use this information to customise the advertising and content you see and to fulfil your requests for certain products and services. However, we do not connect this non-personal data to any personal information collected from you.

We may also allow third party companies that are presenting advertisements on some of our pages to set and access their cookies on your computer. Again, these cookies are not connected to any personal information. Third party cookie usage is subject to their own privacy policies, and we assume no responsibility or liability for this usage.  We also use third party companies to help us handle any payments made through our website or via links we may send you and have Data Processing Agreements in place with them or EU approved model clauses where transfer is taking place outside of the EEA.
