Cookie Policy

A cookie is a small text file which your browser stores on your device. Cookies are transferred into to your device’s permanent storage when you visit our website to allow the site to recognise you when you visit our website again and to enable us to improve your use of the site.

Cookies may be temporary (or “session”) cookies, which are only in use while you visit our website and are deleted when you close your browser, or permanent cookies, which stay on your device’s permanent storage after you leave our website until you delete them manually or your browser deletes them after a period of time.

We may use temporary cookies in order to remember you as you use our website, but we also allow third parties (particularly Google) to use analytical cookies (both temporary and permanent) on our website to compile aggregate information about the areas of our website that are visited most frequently.

Most web browser settings are set for you to accept both our own cookies and third party cookies. However, you are able to adjust those settings (in relation to both our own cookies and those of third parties) to accept the cookies, to prompt you to accept or refuse a cookie each time one is sent, or to reject all cookies outright. We recommend that, for the highest functionality of the website, you accept both our own cookies and third party cookies. Browser settings can be changed in your tool bar. 

Data Protection

We respect the privacy of each individual who visits this Website. We will only collect personal information which is voluntarily submitted. If you do not want your personal information kept or used, please do not submit it to us. Personal information submitted to us is held and used by us solely to provide you with a good experience, easy access to or to enable you to interact with our site. If at any time you want us to delete or amend information, please contact us. We will not sell or transfer your data to third parties.

Why we need your information

We need your personal information to allow us to offer our services to you and to comply with our legal and fiduciary duties. We will only collect the minimum amount of information necessary to provide a service to you, or comply with our legal responsibilities.

Through our website personal information may be collected and processed for the following purposes:-

·      Grant applications submitted online

You may have included personal information within a grant application submitted online. If so you are responsible for confirming you have the written agreement and permission of any individuals identified in your application to pass their personal information to the Livewell Foundation. We will use this information only for the purposes of assessing your application, managing or monitoring any grant awarded, related administration or research purposes, and for sharing relevant information to other funding organisations to use in their own assessment of applications and managing or monitoring of grants awarded.

How we process your information

We will only use your personal information for the purpose for which it was given, will not keep it for longer than necessary and will destroy the information securely according to our data retention policy. Information provided through grant applications may be retained for up to 8 years, after which time it will be destroyed.

Your information will not be shared with third parties unless you have previously been informed, for example, on an application form, or as is required by law, such as with HMRC or with the police for the detection or prevention of crime.


We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. All information is hosted within the UK.
