OUR LEGAL BASIS FOR COLLECTING AND PROCESSING YOUR DATA
We collect and process your data because either
a) we believe you share our interests and aims
b) we understood that you have given us your consent to do so
c) we understood you to have indicated in your prior / ongoing communications with us that you share our interests and aims
We recognise your right to terminate communications with us at any time and your right to request that we delete your data.
WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT, STORE AND USE
The personal information we collect might include your name, email address, IP address (location of your computer on the internet), postal address, records of correspondence with us and - if you made a donation - your bank details and other related financial information. We use your contact details to send you information that you might find of interest or about opportunities/ campaigns that we believe that you may be interested in pursuing with us. If you are one of our staff or volunteers, we may need to keep additional information (e.g. contracts, tax information, medical information etc.) We recognise that some information may be sensitive and hence we will strive to take care with our handling and processing of any sensitive information.
HOW WE COLLECT INFORMATION FROM YOU
1. Direct – We may collect information about you when you interact directly with us and knowingly provide us with personal information.
2.

We will only capture personal data through our website where we have your explicit permission to do so.
3. Third parties – We may also collect your data through third parties such as campaign fundraising (e.g. via CrowdJustice), surveying (SurveyMonkey) or via social media websites (e.g. if you follow us on Facebook or Twitter).
4. Public sources – Finally, we may also attain or combine information you provide to us with information that is generally available from public sources (e.g. through your personal or company website). We believe this enables Humane Being to effectively link up with individuals and organisations who share a common interest with us (e.g. concern over global activities such as intensive farming that may impact negatively on animals, the environment and human health).
