The Canterbury West Coast Air Rescue Trust maintain a Mailing List of individual people, businesses and organisations who have expressed an interest in supporting our organisation or in being informed on a semi-regular basis about our organisation, operations and fundraising activities.


As a responsible organisation, your understanding of the function of our mailing list and privacy is very important to us.

Accordingly, we have developed this Policy for you to understand how we use our mailing list, communicate and disclose or make use of personal information supplied to us.


Our Mailing List WILL BE USED for the purpose of communicating with our subscribers and supporters in order to:

  • Provide them with news, developments and general information about our services
  • Include them in regular fundraising appeal campaigns
  • Provide them with updates and news about events such as our base Open Days or other associated activities and events

Our Mailing List WILL NOT BE USED to provide subscribers with updated Mission Reports, specific operational information or any other information that is not deemed to be in direct support of our fundraising activity.


In all our communication - whether directly through our Mailing List or through other avenues, we are sensitive to the need for patient confidentiality and we respect that right. To this end, we undertake, wherever possible and practical, not to name patients involved in our operations nor to identify them through photographs. We recognise that many of our operations involve traumatic situations and have undertaken not to show images on our website that may cause offence to those involved or those viewing.





The Canterbury West Coast Air Rescue Trust collects personal information for our Mailing List solely with the objective of fulfilling those purposes specified by us above and for other compatible purposes and we undertake to use our Mailing List responsibly and in good faith at all times.


We will only retain personal information as long as necessary for the fulfillment of those purposes.


We will protect personal information by reasonable security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorised access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.


We will make readily available to customers information about our policies and practices relating to the management of personal information.


The Canterbury West Coast Air Rescue Trust appreciates your interest in our services and operation. Your privacy is important to us and we want you to feel comfortable in joining our Mailing List.
