Legitimate Interest:

Following the introduction of new data protection laws in May 2018, Shine will communicate with members under the terms of ‘legitimate interest’

‘Legitimate interest’ allows us to use your personal information in ways you could reasonably expect, and which have a minimal impact on your privacy. In each instance, we endeavour to carefully consider any impact on your personal rights and interests.

Shine will communicate with you in line with the benefits of membership as set out within your application. Typical examples of when we might use this approach include:

  • To tell you about the work Shine is doing
  • To notify you of news, research and developments relevant to your condition
  • To invite you to events where you can meet and connect with professionals and peers
  • To share good news and success stories from the Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus communities
  • To seek your views on upcoming plans and projects

  • Ways to donate or raise money for us
