WHEN DO WE COLLECT INFORMATION FROM YOU?
We collect information about you directly from you and from third parties, as well as automatically through your use of our platforms.
Information We Collect Directly From You
We collect information about you when you visit any of our premises to attend a meeting, event or conference, make or collect a purchase, or receive other services. We may also collect personal and special category information directly from you during the course of your interactions with us, for example, when you register for conferences or events, when you make a donation to our associated Foundations and Charities, and when you complete other forms. We also collect information from you when you provide information through the use of our platforms.
Information We Collect Automatically
Over time, we may automatically collect the following information about your use of our platforms through cookies and other technologies: your domain name; your browser type and operating system; your connection speed; web pages you view; links you click; your IP address; your device ID; the duration of your visit; the referring URL, or the webpage from which you clicked through to our platform. We may combine this information with other information that we have collected about you, including, where applicable, full names and your online user name, information about your avatar, and other personal information we hold about you.
Such information about your use of our platforms (e.g. your IP address, operating system, Internet browser, connection speed, and the domain name of your Internet service provider) may be gathered by the following methods:
Cookies. A cookie is a small text file that is downloaded onto a device’s browser to allow a website to recognise it and to store some information about how you use the site. These small pieces of information are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive which work by assigning to your computer a unique number that has no meaning outside of our platforms.
We use the following types of cookies:
Session Cookies. Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser or turn off your computer. We use session cookies to allow our systems to uniquely identify you during your visit to any of our platforms or while you are logged into a site for long period. This allows us to verify your identity, review and respond to your requests, and process your online transactions as you move through our platforms.
Permanent or Persistent Cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you have logged off from our platforms, closed your browser or turned off your computer. We use persistent cookies to collect statistical information about user activity. This enables us to improve our services to you.
IP Address. You may visit many areas of our platforms anonymously without the need to log into an account or become a registered user. However, even in such cases, we may collect IP addresses automatically. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you register with or begin to use the services of an Internet service provider. Each time you access our platforms and each time you open a page on any of our platforms, our local server or the server of our hosting service will log your IP address.
Web Beacons. A web beacon is a small piece of data, typically an image of just one pixel that is embedded in emails and web pages and delivered to your device in an HTML email message, in an app, in an advert, or as part of a web page request. Web beacons are typically used for site performance monitoring and analytics such as site traffic reporting, counting unique visitors, auditing, personalisation, page load speed and advertising. We may use web beacons in messages that we send to you to determine whether you have opened those messages and/or clicked on links in those messages. The information from our use of web beacons may be collected in a form that is personally identifiable information.
Device ID and Advertising ID. Device ID is a unique identifier that can be used to identify a mobile device such as a PDA or a Smartphone. They can typically only be accessed via an app and not from the mobile web. The latest devices also provide a re-configurable advertising ID that allows ad targeting and tracking without relying on an identifier uniquely linked to the device. We may use device ID and advertising ID, as may be required, to collect statistical information about user activity.
Tracking Content Usage. In the course of using our platforms, if you copy and post any text or audio-visual materials including, without limitation, artwork, graphics, video, pictures, logos, or sound (collectively, “Content“) to your own Web site or to a third party Web site, we may automatically track and capture non- personally identifiable information associated with the use of Content. Please see our Intellectual Property Notice at the end of this page.
What type of information is collected from you?
We only collect data that is relevant for the purpose of providing services to you, to our members, to our volunteers, and to our beneficiaries. Information we collect might include: your name, title, contact address, email address, contact numbers, date of your visit to our premises, date and content of any request, audio-visual files (photographs, videos, graphics, and text collected in the course of services or during events), and information including but not limited to the number of website visits, and resources accessed and downloaded.
We do not store your card information if you make a purchase or donation online or purchase a product from an online shop linked to any of our platforms or linked to any of our partners or affiliates. This information is collected by third-party payment processors, who specialise in the secure online capture and processing of credit / debit card transactions.
We also collect information in connection with your privacy preferences such as any consent or restriction that you provide in relation to your information and your visit.
HOW DO WE COLLECT INFORMATION FROM YOU?
We obtain information about you when you visit any of our premises or any of our platforms, for example when you make a purchase, attend an event or you contact us for information, visit our website or social media platforms, make a donation, become a member of any of our clubs or membership programmes, or if you register to receive our newsletters by postal or electronic mail.

If you have registered for an account on any of our platforms, we may use your personally identifiable information to send you e-mails regarding your registration, including confirmation to verify the accuracy of any information you have provided, and instructions on how to participate or make contributions to our newsletters or platforms. We may also send you e-mails to verify your identity or to notify you if we believe your use of our platforms violates any applicable agreement for the use of our platforms.

Product and Service Announcement E-mails. We may use your personally identifiable information to send you e-mails periodically on our new service updates.

Contact Information. If you contact us by telephone, e-mail or letter, we may keep a record of your contact information and correspondence. If you report a problem with any of our platforms, we may collect this information in a file specific to you.

Where applicable, you may also tick the relevant boxes on the Communications Preferences form or subscribe / unsubscribe options in our print and electronic newsletters. Unless we receive your consent, we will not contact you for event notifications, promotions, or marketing purposes by email, phone or post.
ACCESS TO YOUR INFORMATION (USER CHOICE)
You can request access to personal information that we hold about you and you may request to opt-out of using your data to customise information we send to you or share about you. We will provide you with access to your personal information and respond to any related request within 30 working days of receiving your request, unless we are legally obliged to refuse your request.
Access or Change your Information. Upon request, we will update or correct personal information previously collected, but only to the extent that such action will not compromise the privacy or security interests of other users of any of our platforms. Additionally, upon request, we will delete from our database any personal information you do not want us to hold. However, it may be impossible to entirely delete your information without some residual data or metadata being retained due to the manner in which data backups are made and maintained.
Email Communications. We may send periodic promotional or informational emails to you. You may opt-out of such communications by following the opt-out instructions contained in the e-mail. If you opt-out of receiving emails or newsletters or recommendations or other information we think may interest you, we may still send you e-mails about any service requested or received from us and about your interactions with our organisation.

We will keep your personal information up to date based on the information you have provided to us. Please contact us if you wish to change personal information that is out of date or inaccurate. We shall take reasonable steps, within the shortest possible time, to correct any of your information which is inaccurate, incomplete or out of date.
HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
HOW WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION
We may share your information, including personal information, as follows:
Service Providers. We may disclose the information we collect from you to third party service providers or agents who perform functions on our behalf.
Merger. If we merge with another organisation or if substantially all of our assets are transferred to another organisation, or as part of a liquidation proceeding, we may transfer the information we have collected from you to the other organisation.
Legal Process. We also may disclose the information we collect from you in order to comply with a legal request such as a court order or subpoena.
To Protect Us and Others. We also may disclose the information we collect from you where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, security threats, suspected fraud, violations of our Terms of Service or this Policy, or as evidence in litigation.
Aggregate and De-Identified Information. We may share aggregate or de-identified or pseudonymized information about users with third parties and publicly for marketing, research or similar purposes.
Please note that except as noted above, we will not sell or share your personal information with any third party without your consent.
SAFEGUARDING YOUR INFORMATION
We are committed to ensuring that your personal information is secured. Therefore, we implement adequate technical and organisational measures for data protection by design and by default. This enables us to mitigate the risk of unauthorised access or disclosure of your information.
We protect your personal information using various technologies and safeguards, including Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”), which is an encrypted communication protocol. SSL is a standard format for transmitting secure data from your computer to our local or third party servers. SSL works by using a private key to encrypt data that is transferred over the SSL connection. You will know SSL is being used when you see “https” preceding a Web address, rather than “http.”
Additionally, we restrict employee access to databases containing personal and financial information, we impose confidentiality requirements upon employees who do have access to databases containing personal and financial information, and we make reasonable endeavours to ensure that our subcontractors, affiliates, partners, and third party service providers similarly implement technical and organisational measures for data protection. In order to most efficiently serve you, credit card transactions and billing may be handled by third party financial institutions, which may only use your personal and financial information in connection with the business services they perform for us. All information they receive is via SSL.
Although we use reasonable efforts to safeguard the security of your personal and financial information, transmissions made on or through the Internet are vulnerable to attack and cannot be guaranteed to be secure. In addition, submissions made via e-mail are not protected by SSL technology and are vulnerable to interception during transmission. You hereby accept that we are not responsible for any intercepted information sent via the Internet, and you agree to hold us harmless and release us from any and all claims arising out of or related to unauthorised and accidental access to, loss of, and disclosure of your personal information or for any intercepted information that causes loss or harm to you in any way.
Links to Third Party websites
From time to time, our platforms may contain links to third parties such as affiliate groups, partners and service providers (e.g. Google maps). These links are provided as a convenient way for you to obtain further information only and the content of such third party websites, apps, and social media accounts (“platforms”) is not approved by or the responsibility of our organisation.
These links may allow third parties to collect personally identifiable information and non- personally identifiable information directly from you. Additionally, we may use third parties to provide components of our platforms. In either case, such third parties may have separate privacy policies and data collection practices, independent of us. We: (a) have no responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions; (b) are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such third party platforms; and (c) do not make any warranties or representations about the contents, products or services offered on such third party platforms or the security of any information you provide to them.
EU Data Subjects

- In certain circumstances, you have the right to receive your personal information from us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. However, this right does not apply where it would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
- In some circumstances you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal information. For example, you have the right to object to our processing of your personal information for direct marketing purposes (including profiling for direct marketing purposes). If you make such an objection, we will cease to process your personal information for this purpose.

EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield
There are data transfer protocols, known as Privacy Shield Frameworks, for data transfers between the EU and the United States of America (US) and between the US and Switzerland. Under the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shied Frameworks, we are responsible for the processing of information about you that we receive from the EU and Switzerland and onward transfers to a third party acting as an agent on our behalf. We comply with Privacy Shield Principles for such onward transfers and remain liable in accordance with Privacy Shield Principles if third party agents that we engage to process such information about you do so in a manner inconsistent with Privacy Shield Principles, unless we prove that we are not responsible for the event which may have given rise to proven damages.
We commit to cooperate with EU data protection authorities (DPAs) and the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) and we will make reasonable endeavours to comply with the advice given by such authorities with regard to personnel and user data transferred from the EU and Switzerland in the context of the employment relationship and commercial relationships.

Special Note Regarding Minors
We do not provide services to natural persons under the age of 18 (“Minors”). As such, some of our platforms may not be appropriate for minors e.g. audio-visual content or social media commentary may contain text, speeches, articles, photos or videos that are appropriate for adults only. In addition, we do not intentionally collect any personally identifiable information from minors without the consent of a parent or guardian. Where we collect such information, it is restricted to basic information for the purposes of protecting the vital interests of the minor (e.g. in an emergency); acting in the legitimate interest of the minor; performing a task in the public interest; performing a legal obligation; or performance of a contract in relation to the minor. Also, we may receive information about children and minors in certain situations, such as a customer service request or in the course of events planning. In such situations, we will only collect and use the personal information of minors with the consent of a parent or a guardian.
If you discover your minor child or ward has submitted his or her information to us without your consent, you must contact us to either provide your consent or request to have such information deleted from our database. Please send your email request to firstname.lastname@example.org together with the e-mail address that was submitted by the Minor. Upon receiving the request, we will use reasonable efforts to delete such information.
