We respect the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and this policy explains how we collect and treat any information you give us. This policy is short and has been written in simple terms.
Our policy covers
Why we value your privacy
We value your privacy as much as we do our own, so we’re committed to keeping your personal information safe. We’re uncomfortable with the information companies, governments, and other organisations keep on file, so we ask for only the bare minimum from our users. We’ll never use your personal information for any reason other than why you gave it, and we’ll never give anyone access to it unless we’re forced to by law.
How we collect information
We collect your email address when you sign up for one of our newsletters. Occasionally, we might receive your contact information from one of our partners. If we do, we protect it in exactly the same way as if you give it to us directly.
What information we hold
Where we store your information
When you contact us by email or through our website, we store your information in our address book and Stakeholder list. If you sign up for a newsletter, we store your email address in Google spreadsheets and MailChimp, which is the marketing platform we prefer. We chose these systems partly for their commitment to security.
What we use your information for
We occasionally use your contact information to send you details of our products and services. When we do, you have the option to unsubscribe from these communications and we won’t send them to you again. We might also email you about our products and services, but if you tell us not to, we won’t get in touch again. We will use your information to send you invoices, statements, or reminders.
Who’s responsible for your information at our company
Our team. You can contact them by email at email@example.com if you have any concerns about the information we store.
Who has access to information about you
When we store information in our own systems, only the people who need it have access. Our team has access to everything you’ve provided, but individual employees have access to only what they need to do their job.
The steps we take to keep your information private
Where we store your information in third-party services, we restrict access only to people who need it. We do not ask for your details on any of our platforms unless you opt in to our mailing list or sign up for updates.
How to complain
We take complaints very seriously. If you’ve any reason to complain about the ways we handle your privacy, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Changes to the policy
If we change the contents of this policy, those changes will become effective the moment we publish them on our website.
