We only receive and hold information about you which you give to us directly. The type and quantity of information we collect and how we use it depends on why you are providing it.
We will use your data to provide you with the services, products or information you asked for.
If you give a donation to the MUKTI Project or take part in one of our fund raising events we collect:

• Your Name

If you complete a Gift Aid form we will hold a paper copy of your Gift Aid declaration on file and a scanned electronic copy. We shall use your Gift Aid Declaration to reclaim the tax you have already paid from HMRC.
If you complete a Standing Order form, a copy is sent to your Bank to process and a copy is held in a file by MUKTI.
If you take part in a fund-raising event for MUKTI your name and contact details will be retained. If you take part in a lottery organised by the Traditional Yoga Association your contact details will be held on file but only for the purpose of organising the lottery and only held for a necessary length of time.


How will we use the information about you?

We collect information about you to be able to send you the product or service you have ordered. If you send MUKTI a donation we collect sufficient information to process the donation and send you a receipt.
MUKTI holds personal information for the following reasons:

• Internal administration and record keeping
• Keeping records and audit trails as required by the Charity Commission

We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, for example we will keep a record of donations subject to gift aid for at least seven years to comply with HMRC rules.

Yogini Laura knew that once lockdown came into force, our fund-raising would suffer a blow. She then went into action. She opened a ‘Just Giving’ page and requested donations for her hair-shave. In the process she raised a whopping £1,280 and all the funds came to Mukti.
