Your privacy is important to us. You can find our general privacy policy statement below, with sections for areas of our work that involve us holding your data.

On this website – cookies and privacy

Like most websites, this one uses cookies to improve the way the site works for visitors and to provide us with stats showing how many visitors we get, and which pages they use.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile by the website’s server. Cookies contain anonymous information, such as a unique identifier number, so that each visit can be logged separately, and the site name. 

On this site

There are two types of cookies in use on this site. 

  • The site as a whole uses “necessary cookies” to make it work smoothly. 
  • We also use cookies to make our website analytics work. This gives us anonymised stats about which pages on our website are popular and similar information to help us maintain our site in a way that helps our visitors. We use Matomo for analytics – an open source, privacy-focused alternative to Google Analytics that does not use “third party cookies” or send data to Google or anywhere else.

We do not run commercial advertising on this site and there are no advertising-related cookies.

What to do if you don’t want cookies on your machine

If you want, you can block cookies using your browser settings – although this might mean some website functions no longer work properly. Go here for details of how to control cookies on most web browsers.

Website forms

We use online booking and enquiry forms on this site for our training, events and other services. The information you submit to us is covered by the general EVA privacy statement below.

Mailing lists

We use the Brevo mailing system when we are sending emails to large numbers of users. This includes sending out our monthly EVANEWS email newsletter, our quarterly volunteering opportunities mailings and the mailings for our networks of local voluntary and community groups.

If you register an interest in becoming a volunteer, sign up for EVANEWS or join any of our networks, your mailing details will be held on Brevo’s servers.

You can unsubscribe and remove yourself from any of these mailings instantly by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of all our mailings. You do not have to ask a member of staff or give any reason – just click.

You can also change your mailing preferences if, for example, you would like to leave or join a different network.

The statement below covers privacy in relation to all EVA’s work.

General EVA privacy statement

When you request information from Enfield Voluntary Action, sign up to any of our services or buy things from us, Enfield Voluntary Action obtains information about you. This statement explains how we look after that information and what we do with it.

We have a legal duty under the Data Protection Act and General Data Protection
Regulation to prevent your information falling into the wrong hands. We must also
ensure that the data we hold is accurate, adequate, relevant and not excessive.

Normally the only information we hold comes directly from you. Whenever we
collect information from you, we will make it clear which information is required in
order to provide you with the information, service or goods you need. You do not
have to provide us with any additional information unless you choose to.

We store your information securely on our computer system, we restrict access to those who have a need to know, and we train our staff in handling the information securely.

Some of our training courses involve other agencies such as accreditation bodies, which are responsible for accreditation and therefore will need to collect
information to pass to the agency for them to complete their function.

We would also like to contact you in future to tell you about other services we
provide, to keep you informed of what we are doing and ways in which you might
like to support Enfield Voluntary Action. You have the right to ask us not to contact you in this way. We will always aim to provide a clear method for you to opt out.

You can also contact us directly at any time to tell us not to send you any future
marketing material.

Very occasionally we may carry out a joint mailing with carefully selected other
organisations, in order to tell you about products and services we think you might be interested in. Again, you have right to withdraw or opt out of this.

You have the right to a copy of all the information we hold about you and to ask EVA to delete all the data that we have about you.

If you would like any clarification about the way EVA uses information please contact We aim to reply as promptly as we can and resolve any issues, such as requests for data, in all but exceptional cases, within one month.

EVA membership application form

The information you provide on this form will be used to add information to
EVA’s internal database and mailing list. Any items denoted as ‘confidential’ will
remain so.

Enfield Voluntary Action does not store or collect any personal information, except in the form of individuals’ names and job titles, for the purpose of providing a public contact within an organisation.

From time to time EVA is asked to share organisational information with statutory agencies. EVA will seek permission from relevant groups before disclosing these details. This is in compliance with the Data Protection Act 1998, the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulation (PECR) and the General Data Protection Regulation 2018.

Volunteer registration form

  • You have the right to see any information about you that we hold in a retrieval system such as a computer database or paper index system.
  • You have the right for your details to be removed from our database
  • We may compile statistical data from time to time but this will never include reference to a particular individual.
  • In order to keep you up to date with information and events we may include you in our mailing list or email list.
  • We will never sell or give our mailing list to a third party.

We will hold your information confidentially. Using the information, we will try to match you with volunteering opportunities that appear to suit your preferences and availability. If we find a match we will contact you with the details of the volunteering opportunity; you can then decide if this is something you would like to become involved with as a volunteer or not. If not, we will continue to look for volunteering opportunities that you may be interested in.
