Privacy policy

Wellbeing of Women is committed to safeguarding your privacy online. We use the information we collect about you to help us understand more about how our site is used and to be able to send you communications about Wellbeing of Women that may be of interest to you, either electronically or otherwise. The ‘personally identifiable information’ is information that enables us to identify you, such as your email address, name, title and address.

Please read the following policy to understand how your personal information will be treated. This policy may change from time to time so please check periodically.

1. What personally identifiable information does Wellbeing of Women collect from me?

Like many websites, Wellbeing of Women uses cookies in order to provide you with a more personalised web service.
A cookie is a text-only string of information that we pass to your computer’s hard disk through your web browser so that the website can remember who you are. Cookies cannot be used by themselves to identify you.
A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the ‘lifetime’ of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number.
For more information about cookies, please see www.allaboutcookies.org.
We use two types of cookies on our website:

  • per session cookies, which are temporary cookies that remain in the cookies file of your browser until you leave the site
  • persistent cookies, which remain in the cookies file of your browser for longer (although how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie). These cookies are used to store information between visits to a site

We use persistent cookies to provide certain services, so that you do not have to log in repeatedly between visits.

If you do not wish to receive cookies, you can easily modify your web browser to refuse cookies, or to notify you when you receive a new cookie. However, you may not be able to use all the interactive features of our site if cookies are disabled, so in order to enjoy the Wellbeing of Women site to the full, we recommend that you leave them switched on.

2. How does Wellbeing of Women use my information?

Wellbeing of Women uses the information we collect about you to help us with understanding more about how our site is used and to be able to send you communications that may be of interest to you, either electronically or otherwise.

3. Who is collecting your information?

When you are on the Wellbeing of Women website and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with Wellbeing of Women alone, unless stated otherwise. For example, when you are using our secure online donation pages, you are going through to a partner company, Sage Pay, and it is clear on the donation page when you are going through to the Sage Pay site.

4. With whom does Wellbeing of Women share your information?

As a general rule, Wellbeing of Women will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information, except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it. When you are using our secure online donation pages you are going through to a partner company and the information you give such as your credit card number and contact information is provided so that the transaction can take place.

Occasionally we run promotional fundraising or awareness campaigns sponsored by third parties. In these instances, your information will also be shared with those third parties and them alone; however, this is made clear from the outset and you will have the option to opt out of the promotion.

5. What are my choices regarding, collection, use and distribution of my information?

If you indicated that you are interested in receiving regular information about Wellbeing of Women’s campaign work we will send you communications regarding Wellbeing of Women’s work and activities, either electronically or otherwise. In addition, we may send you direct mail that we feel may be of interest to you. If at any point you would like to stop receiving these communications, please email hello@wellbeingofwomen.org.uk or write to Database Manager, Supporter Relations, Wellbeing of Women, First Floor Fairgate House, 78 New Oxford Street, London WC1A 1HB with your details. Wellbeing of Women does not sell, rent or share user information with anyone unless clearly specified in promotional fundraising or awareness campaigns.

6. What is Wellbeing of Women’s policy on allowing me to update, correct or delete my personally identifiable information?

The accuracy of your individual identifying information is important to Wellbeing of Women. We are working on ways to make it easier for you to review and correct the information that Wellbeing of Women maintains about you. In the meantime, if you change email address or if any of the other information we hold is inaccurate or out of date, please email us at hello@wellbeingofwomen.org.uk or write to Database Manager, Supporter Relations, Wellbeing of Women, First Floor Fairgate House, 78 New Oxford Street, London WC1A 1HB with the details.

7. How does Wellbeing of Women protect my personal identifiable information?

Wellbeing of Women is committed to taking reasonable steps to protect the individual identifying information that you provide to us.

8. What security precautions are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of my information?

When you give Wellbeing of Women personal information that information will be stored and processed solely within the UK and we take steps to ensure that your information is treated securely.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Wellbeing of Women cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
