The Information Commissioner’s Office’s investigations into charities’ fundraising practices, including wealth screening, have focused on non-compliance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003. We have not made an assessment of any effect on charitable donations resulting from compliance with existing law.
