2. How does ActionAid use my information?
ActionAid uses the information we collect about you to help us with understanding more about how our site is used and to be able to send you communications that may be of interest to you, either electronically or otherwise.
3. Who is collecting your information?
When you are on the ActionAid website and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with ActionAid alone unless stated otherwise. For example, when you are buying your gifts in the secure online shopping area, you are going through to a partner company, Secure Hosting, and it is clear on the donation page when you are going through to the Secure Hosting site.
4. With whom does ActionAid share your information?
As a general rule, ActionAid will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information, except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it. When you are using our secure online shopping area you are going through to a partner company and the information you give such as your credit card number and contact information is provided so that the transaction can take place.
5. What are my choices regarding, collection, use and distribution of my information?
If you indicated that you are interested in receiving further information about ActionAid's work we will send you communications regarding our activities, either electronically or otherwise. In addition, we may send you direct mail that we feel may be of interest to you.
ActionAid does not sell or rent user information to anyone.
6. What is ActionAid's policy on allowing me to update, correct, or delete my personally identifiable information?
The accuracy of your individual identifying information is important to ActionAid. We are working on ways to make it easier for you to review and correct the information that ActionAid maintains about you. In the meantime, if you change email address, or any of the other information we hold is inaccurate or out of date, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01460 23 8047 with the details.
7. What security precautions are in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of my information?
When you give ActionAid personal information, it may be stored and processed outside of the UK and we take steps to ensure that your information is treated securely.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, ActionAid cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
