Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: https://www.anglicanmissionsafrica.org/

This Privacy Policy explains what to expect when Anglican Missions Africa collects and uses your personal information. Please read it carefully. Anglican Missions Africa takes data protection seriously and stores your personal data securely. We protect the confidentiality of your personal information and always ensure its security. If you would like to learn more about our Data Protection and Privacy Policies or get further clarification, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Our commitment

Anglican Missions Africa is committed to respecting your privacy and ensuring the personal information you have entrusted to us is processed in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA), the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003 (PECR) and the General Data Protection Regulation 2018 (GDPR). We will never pass on your details to another charity or organisation who could contact you or add you to their mailing lists.

Sensitive Personal Data

The Data Protection Act recognises some information as ‘sensitive personal data’. This includes, but is not limited to, information regarding your age, financial status, race or ethnic origin. We deliberately do not ask you for this information as we do not carry out any kind of wealth screening and we do not hold any data that is not necessary for our purposes.

All your information submitted via our website will be transmitted in a secure fashion. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts any sensitive information you input. For example if you make a card donation online, the card number and your contact details are encrypted and sent to the appropriate card company.

What personal data we collect

We collect personal information directly from you, and no one else, when you make the decision to sign up to receive our mailings.

The personal information we collect:

  • Personal identifiers such as your title and name, we will not collect your date of birth;
  • Contact details including your postal address and postcode for physical mailings, or your telephone number and email for electronic communication;
  • Donors who have made a donation to Anglican Missions Africa.
  • Volunteers who offer their services free; most likely, but not necessarily, supporters
  • Records of your contact with us.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

How and where we store your information

We keep your personal information only for as long as we need it for each activity. What we have to do by law, accounting and tax all come into play. We also have a separate data retention policy to guide us.

If you tell us you’re happy for us to send you marketing materials, we’ll keep contacting you for up to five years, unless you tell us not to. We decided on this length of time by asking our supporters what they thought. We will anonymise your data after a further 10 years of no contact.

For surveys, pledges or petitions, we will keep your responses for a short period of time, typically under 6 months, for analysis purposes. Thereafter we keep the results anonymised at an overall level and a record that we approached you and whether you responded. Each survey will make it clear what we intend to do, so you are informed before you choose to respond.

Your Rights

The Data Protection Act (DPA) and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) give you the right:

  • To request from us in writing all of the personal information that we hold about you;
  • To correct or update your personal information processed and held by Anglican Missions Africa;
  • To be removed from our mailing lists (please note that we have up to 28 days to comply with a request not to receive postal mailings); and
  • To withdraw your consent for your data to be used unless there is an over-riding need for us to keep the data.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.
