Movement for Hope respects your privacy
Movement for hope understands your right to privacy and how important it is to you that your personal information remains secure. We hope that this policy statement will answer questions you may have about how we manage and protect your details. Your personal data is protected by UK legislation, specifically the Data Protection Act 1998, and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) 2003. We aim to exceed our legal obligations by following best practice and reviewing data collection procedures regularly.
1. What information will Movement for Hope collect about me, what is it used for, and how is it obtained?
Your personal information held by Movement for Hope is collected directly from you when you complete and return forms as part of communicating with Movement for Hope (eg signing up at an event, film or making a donation online).
We collect this information in order to promote you on our website, keep in touch with you and supply you with data relating to Movement for Hope’s work (if you wish to receive this information). This includes keeping you informed about issues that might potentially be of interest to you. The information which we collect in this way will typically include your name, postal and email addresses, and your bank details if you are supporting us financially through donations or our store. We will also sometimes obtain contact information indirectly from third parties.
In some cases Movement for Hope may collect information that the Data Protection Act considers to be ‘sensitive’ (this could include details of ethnicity or religious beliefs). Such information will only be collected and retained with your consent.
2. Will you ever share or sell my information?
We will not sell your information to third party organisations. Additionally, we do not share your personal information with third parties for their benefit. All information received by a third party will be via public information included in your biography with us (displayed with your permission) in any of our collaborators sections (i.e. collaborating artist, collaborating scientist, collaborating advocate).
We may sometimes ask third party organisations to contact you on our behalf as part of our fundraising activities, events, or films, but the information gathered in this way remains our legal responsibility and we ensure that data is treated with the same level of care as if we were handling it directly.
3. How secure is the information which I give to you?
Movement for Hope considers the care of your data a serious matter and undertakes the responsibility to protect your personal information. Several means of protecting your data are implemented including specific technologies and procedures designed to protect your privacy, such as secure servers, firewalls and SSL encryption. We also follow payment card industry (PCI) security compliance guidelines when processing credit card payments.
Any personal information transferred between locations will be both encrypted and password protected.
4. How long will you keep my information for?
We will retain your information for as long as you have an active relationship with Movement for Hope. If you cease to have an active relationship with us, or request to receive no further contact, we may retain some basic information to avoid sending you unwanted materials in the future. Additionally, this ensures we do not accidentally duplicate information.
5. Will my information ever go outside the UK?
Your non-public personal data will not be shared with Movement for Hope members in different parts of the world without your permission. We may seek permission to share information in order to enable the operation of collaborative films in other countries or fundraising events or programmes in other countries. This information does not include financial details and is only ever shared in this way for defined purposes.
Movement for Hope is aware that countries outside the European Union have differing approaches to data privacy laws, and that enforcement may not be as robust as it is within the European Union. We therefore take particular care if your data goes outside this area.
