This privacy statement describes how The Humanimal Trust processes, stores and protects any information that you give us.
The Humanimal Trust is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this website, or by any other means, such as orally or in written form, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.
The Trust takes a proactive approach to user privacy and ensures the necessary steps are taken to protect the privacy of its users when they visit our website or whenever they are asked to share their personal details.

We will not rent, swap or sell personal information to other organisations for them to use in their own marketing activities.
The legal basis that we rely on for processing personal data will depend upon the circumstances in which it is being collected and used, but will in most cases fall into one of the following categories:
What We Collect and How We Use it
Whilst using our website, software applications or services, you may be required to provide personal information (name, address, email, bank account details, etc.). We will use this information to administer our website, supporter databases and marketing material or to process orders and/or donations. We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Further, by providing telephone and email details, you consent to The Humanimal Trust contacting you using that method.
You have the right at any time to request a copy of the personal information we hold on you. Should you wish to receive a copy of this, or would like to be removed from our database, or change your contact preferences, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
How do we Collect Information?
The Humanimal Trust collects information in two possible ways:
When you sign up for our website, purchase our products or communicate with us, you may choose to voluntarily give us certain information – for example, by filling in text boxes or completing registration forms.
We may also collect personal details provided to us on paper or via email (for example, in response to fundraising or other correspondence), or orally, by giving us your details at a function or event, or by telephone.
Depending on your online settings or the privacy policies for other online services, you may give us permission to obtain information from your account with those other services. For example, this can be via social media or by choosing to send us your location data when accessing our website from your smartphone.
Data profiling and analysis
We may also carry out analysis of the personal information we collect about individuals and add publicly available information to create a profile of interests, preferences, and ability to support us, including the amount or level of potential donation or legacy someone may be able to give.
This is so we can contact people in the most appropriate way and with the most relevant information, which enables us to raise funds more quickly and cost-effectively.
This information is compiled from sources such as public registers (e.g. listed Directorships), the electoral roll, newspaper articles and social media posts.
Anyone who does not wish their data to be processed in this way can do so by contacting us via email@example.com or by calling us on 01483 791725.
How long do we keep your Data For?
The Humanimal Trust will not retain your personal information longer than is necessary to carry out the purpose for which it was given. We will hold onto the information you provide either while your account is in existence, or as needed to be able to provide services to you. We may also keep trend data from, for example, fundraising mailings, emails and phone calls.
If legally required or if it is reasonably necessary to meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, prevent fraud and abuse, or enforce our Terms and Conditions, we may also retain some of your information for a limited period of time as required, even after it is no longer needed to provide services to you.
