BBC reports:

Two charities have been fined over data protection breaches after secretly screening donors so they could be targeted for more money.

The Information Commissioner imposed penalties of £25,000 on the RSPCA [Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals] and £18,000 on the British Heart Foundation over the so-called “wealth screening”.

The charities also traded personal details with other charities, the commissioner’s office found.

The RSPCA questioned the ICO findings while the BHF said it might appeal.
