Your Data – Your Rights
When you contact us, you may give us some personal details. This information is stored

Occasionally we may ‘act’ to protect you by sharing information without your consent.
This is only if absolutely necessary such as your life is in danger or if you are unable to
give consent. If we are really worried about you and think that you are at risk or danger,
we will talk to you about the need for somebody outside the No Whispers organisation to
know what has happened or what is happening to you.

We would only do this if:
• your life is at risk because of something you are doing
• you are at risk from somebody else
• you are a risk to somebody else.
In these cases, we will use any contact details so that we can refer you to the appropriate
services or get the help you need.
