The GlobalNatives.Club promises to take great care with your personal data. We commit to protecting any personal information we obtain about you, whether you are a paying member, a non-paying member, a "philanthropal" or a volunteer.
We hold and process personal data for a number of reasons:
To send our members information about our projects and activities where we have their consent
To support community based research
To contact community members for occasional surveys
To comply with legal obligations
To manage our organisation
To ensure we do not send unwanted information to members or the public
The law on data protection sets out a number of different reasons for organisations to collect and process your personal data: When collecting your personal data, we will always make clear to you which data is necessary for a particular purpose.
Wherever possible, we will ask for your consent to send you information and/or questionnaires. We will do this through a clear statement of what you will receive and allow you to select only those channels that you wish to hear from us by. In specific situations, we process your data to pursue our legitimate interests in ways which might reasonably be expected and which do not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests.
If the law requires us to, we may need to collect and process your data.
In limited situations we may use data in the public interest. It is likely to be in the public interest to collect data to prevent crime or dishonesty, ensure that we are fair in our practices or safeguard the wellbeing of people with whom we work.
Cookies are a useful way for us to understand how supporters use our website. When you visit our web site we will collect data from your computer or other device such as a smart phone or tablet through the use of "cookies". Cookies are created by your web browser when you visit our website. Every time you go back to the Global Natives website, your browser will send the cookie file back to the website's server. They improve your experience of using our website, for example, by remembering your preference settings. Furthermore, they measure your use of the website to enable us to continuously improve our website to ensure that it meets your needs.
If you visit our website as an anonymous visitor (e.g. you switch off cookies), Global Natives may still collect certain information from your browser, such as the IP address. An IP address is a number that can uniquely identify a computer or other internet device.
We only collect personal data relevant to the interaction you have with us. Whatever your interaction with us this information will be minimal and directly linked to the purpose for which we need it. All sensitive personal data is stored on a secure database, to which only a limited number of relevant staff have access. It is deleted when no longer relevant, is never shared with third parties, and is available to you at any point should you wish to see it.
We will only use your information within GlobalNatives.Org for the purposes for which it was obtained. We will not, under any circumstances, share or sell your personal data with any third party for their own marketing purposes, and you will not receive marketing from any other companies, charities or other organisations as a result of giving your details to us.
We will also comply with legal requests where disclosure is required or permitted by law (for example to government bodies, statutory bodies, or law enforcement agencies for tax purposes, where it is in the public interest, or the prevention and detection of crime, subject to appropriate protection in law).
We may transfer your personal data outside the EEA. If it does so, this may occur under the protections of the European Commission's standard contractual clauses, but will otherwise only take place where appropriate standards and safeguards are in place.
The accuracy of your information is really important to us. We want to ensure that we are able to communicate with you in ways that you are happy with, and to provide you with information that is of interest. By maintaining an up to date member profile you ensure this efficiently. Ending your membership means all your personal data will be deleted within 14 days of your last day of active membership.
We ensure that there are appropriate technical controls in place to protect your personal details. For example our online forms are always encrypted and our network is protected and routinely monitored. We undertake regular reviews of who has access to information that we hold to ensure that your information is only accessible by appropriately trained staff, volunteers and contractors.
You have a variety of rights in respect of your data, including the rights to see, update, restrict, object to the use of or withdraw use of your data. In particular, depending upon why we hold your data, you may have the right to request:
- Access to the personal data we hold about you free of charge (this is known as a 'Subject Access Request').
- Access to correct your personal data when incorrect, out of date or incomplete.
- That we delete your personal data from our systems (this is known as the "Right to be Forgotten", see above).
You can contact us to request to exercise these rights at any time.
