Your online privacy and security is very important to White Ribbon UK.
When you are visiting www.whiteribboncampaign.co.uk, and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with White Ribbon UK alone unless stated otherwise.
In order to keep improving our website, we collect the following information from visitors
White Ribbon UK 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. White Ribbon UK does not sell lists to others. White Ribbon UK may share individual information available to affiliated third parties and our agents for marketing purposes. White Ribbon UK may also use such information to contact people for marketing purposes. From time to time, we agree with other like-minded organisations to write to some of each other's supporters, for the mutual benefit of both.
We use the information we collect about visitors to the site to help us with understanding more about how our site is used and to be able to send you appropriate communications.
If you have subscribed to any of White Ribbon UK's e-communications, e-zines or e-newsletters we will not sell or rent this information to anyone. From time to time we may work in partnership with other organisations on a campaign and so you may receive joint communications from White Ribbon UK and the partnership organisations.
What does White Ribbon UK do with the information you provide?
If you provide us with personal information (for example, when taking part in an action) your details are stored securely and used only for the purpose for which you have signed up. We do not pass your details to other organisations without your express consent.
The information you give us will be stored on a database and may be used by us where appropriate. This data helps us to know what incentives, appeals and actions are working well and which are not so strong - and informs future activity across the organisation, helping White Ribbon UK to be more effective in raising issues.
When you give White Ribbon UK personal information we take steps to ensure that your information is treated securely. Unfortunately, it is not possible to guarantee the total security of any data transmitted over the Internet. While we strive to protect your personal information, White Ribbon UK cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you therefore do this at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
Also, once we receive your data, we do everything we can to make sure that it is secure on our systems.
This policy will be updated if there are any changes in our practice
