Researcher and writer
This week, the researcher Vivian Krause has stated before the committee of commons on the finance that she suspected WE to share such personal data with third parties in exchange for generous sponsorship.
“WE Charity has never shared its database with a political party, or a corporate group “, replied the body.

However, it also reads : “we give your information to people and companies that help us provide, understand and improve the services we offer “.
