Privacy statement

We take our data protection responsibilities very seriously and ensure that all personal data we obtain is held, used, transferred and processed in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998, all other data protection rules and regulations, including the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003.

We will not share, swap or sell your information other than to share it with data processors i.e. trusted organisations that work with us, subject in each case to compliance with our instructions and data protection agreements, except for the purpose of this form, which is used to pass the information you have entered about your ICS experience to journalists.

The personal information you enter into the press release form will be shared with journalists to promote International Citizen Service, after which VSO will no longer be in control of the data. Your post code and address will not be shared with journalists. VSO cannot control how journalists will use the information that is shared with them, and they may wish to contact you for more details using the contact information you provide in the press release.

Please take great care to avoid defamatory statements. VSO reserves the right to review and possibly reject press releases before they are sent to journalists.
