Where we store your personal data
All information you provide to us is generally stored on secure servers in the UK.
However, in some cases your personal data may also be transferred to, and stored in, a country outside the EEA. Countries outside the EEA may not have laws which provide the same level of protection to your personal data as laws within the EEA. Where this is the case we will put in place appropriate safeguards to ensure that such transfers comply with applicable data protection legislation.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
Under the applicable data protection legislation you have certain rights with respect to the personal data we hold about you. These may include rights to: withdraw any consent that you may have given, request a copy of the personal data that we hold, request that we correct personal data if it is inaccurate, request that we restrict our processing of your personal data, object to our processing of your personal data, and request we erase your personal data. These rights are limited in some situations. For example, if we have a legal requirement or a compelling legitimate ground we may continue to process your data even where you request its deletion.
If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
You also have the right to make a complaint if you feel your personal data has been mishandled. We encourage you to come to us in the first instance but you are also entitled to complain directly to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) (if you are in the UK), or to your local data protection authority (if you are outside the UK).
