You can visit the website without disclosing any personally identifiable information about yourself.
1. The information we collect and how we use it
Under normal circumstances, we will not use, store or otherwise process any personally identifiable information that relates to and identifies you. If however, you choose to contact Survivors of Abuse, your email address will be stored to be used only for responding to your query. Your personal information will not be passed on to any third parties, such as member groups of Survivors of Abuse, without your prior consent.
We also gather information for statistical purposes of monitoring website usage and may provide such aggregate information to third parties. These statistics will not include information that can be used in any way to identify you.
Your data may be available to our website provider to enable us and them to deliver their service to us, carry out analysis and research on demographics, interests and behaviour of our users and supporters to help us gain a better understanding of them to enable us to improve our services. This may include connecting data we receive from you on the website to data available from other sources. Your personally identifiable data will only be used where it is necessary for the analysis required, and where your interests for privacy are not deemed to outweigh their legitimate interests in developing new services for us. In the case of this activity the following will apply:
- Your data will be made available to our website provider
- The data that may be available to them include any of the data we collect as described in this policy.
- Our website provider will not transfer your data to any other third party, or transfer your data outside of the EEA.
- They will store your data for a maximum of 7 years.
2. Information Security
The Internet is not a secure medium. However, we have put in place various security procedures as set out in this policy.
Please be aware that communications over the Internet, such as emails/webmails are not secure unless they have been encrypted. Your communications may route through a number of countries before being delivered – this is the nature of the World Wide Web/Internet. We cannot accept responsibility for any unauthorised access or loss of personal information that is beyond our control.
We believe that we have appropriate policies, rules and technical measures to protect the personal data that we have under our control (having regard to the type and amount of that data) from unauthorised access, improper use or disclosure, unauthorised modification, unlawful destruction or accidental loss.
All of our employees and data processors that have access to, and are associated with, the processing of your personal information are obliged to respect the confidentiality of our visitors’ information.
We ensure that your information will not be disclosed to government institutions or authorities except if required by law or when requested to by regulatory bodies or law enforcement organisations.
You may disable cookie support on your browser but be aware that by doing so, you will lose certain features that require a cookie to work properly. We may use the information collected by the cookie to provide us with various statistics without identifying any individual.
4. Your Consent
In the event the purposes for processing change, then we will contact you as soon as practicable and seek your consent where such notification relates to a new additional purpose for processing.
Owing to the global nature of the Internet infrastructure, the information you provide may be transferred in transit to countries outside the European Economic Area that do not have similar protections in place regarding your data and its use as set out in this policy. However we have taken the steps outlined above to try and protect the security of your information.
