If your organisation chooses to join our Membership, our Development team will be in touch to explain the details they’ll need from you that will be used to communicate with you in the delivery of your chosen services. Key to this for example will be the contact details (names, work numbers and work email addresses) of your designated team members so that we can successfully work together.
In processing Member applications, we utilise Survey Monkey to collect relevant business information (see their privacy page for further information - https://www.surveymonkey.com/mp/policy/privacy-policy/ and we also use AdobeSign for the processing of subsequent contracts.

In processing this information with a view to forming a business relationship we’re initially processing the data with a legitimate interest.
We work with a number of organisations in this way to forge successful business partnerships. In working with any third parties we ensure robust due diligence is carried out, and formal arrangements are in place to ensure the security and confidentiality of any personal data that may be processed in working with them.
If you require further information, you can contact our Development team.
We work in partnership with a number of highly regarded, prestigious and varied organisations across the world to help us in our mission to eliminate child sexual abuse imagery online. Examples of the types of organisations we work with include; other NGOs, the internet industry, INHOPE – the International Associate of Internet Hotlines, Government and law enforcement agencies around the world.
These partnerships come in many forms and are managed through a combination of formal agreements, legal contracts, initiatives and collaborations. Be assured that where personal data (including that of our staff or any contractor(s) working on our behalf) is processed in order to carry out any such partnership, it is done so securely and within the confines of the law. Further information on our partnerships can be found within our website.
In working with organisations around the world we need to be sure data is not transferred outside the European Economic Area without appropriate controls being in place. In such a circumstance, we ensure relevant standard contractual clauses are in place and/or EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield framework compliance or data adequacy status by the EU.
To support young people to remove sexual images of themselves online, the NSPCC and the IWF have developed the Report Remove tool, in partnership with age verification app, Yoti. Report Remove can support a young person in reporting sexual images or videos shared online and enables the young person to get the image removed if it is illegal. The NSPCC’s Childline service ensures that the young person is safeguarded throughout the process.
Information for children using Report Remove
There are 3 organisations that help you report your image using Report Remove. These are Childline, IWF and also Yoti if you are 13 or older. All of them have a responsibility to keep all of your personal information safe.
- We’ll ask you to choose your age range (under 13, 13-15,16-17, 18 and over). If you’re under 13, you’ll go straight to step 3. If you’re aged 13 or older, us at Childline will ask you to visit Yoti. The only information we will share with Yoti is that you are wanting to prove your age to use Report Remove.
- Once you prove your age using Yoti, you will come back to Report Remove on Childline. The only information Yoti will share with Childline is confirmation that you’re younger or older than 18.
- We’ll then ask you to create or sign in to a Childline account. Then you’ll go to the IWF website to share the content you want removed. Childline will only share this information with IWF: that you're younger than 18, the age range you selected at the start and a unique number that is created when you use Report Remove.
- After your report has been passed to the IWF, they will tell Childline if they were able to take the images or video down from the internet, and why. This is so Childline can let you know what happened.
Information you give to us at the IWF: The only information you will give us are the images, videos or URLs you report. There is space to add information such as where the image or video is on a webpage. We will process this in line with the rest of this Privacy Notice. Illegal images/videos may be kept by the IWF for up to 2 years in line with what’s called a ‘Memorandum of Understanding’ that we have with the police and the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS). Any images/videos that we decide are not illegal may be kept for up to 6 months max to allow time for quality checking and any follow up questions, they will then be deleted. Childline will never see what pictures, videos or URLs you share with us. The only information we share with Childline apart from your case number is whether or not we could take down your images or videos, and why, so they can let you know.
Information you give to Yoti: You may need to use Yoti to confirm your age if you’re over 13. This may involve taking a selfie, so Yoti know it is you who are proving your age, and uploading a picture of some ID. Any personal data you send Yoti - like your photo, date of birth or address - is scrambled with a high level of encryption so that even if it was stolen, no one could use it to identify you. The only information Yoti shares with Childline is confirmation that you’re under or over 18.
