We are committed to protecting your privacy and security. This policy explains how and why we use your personal data, to ensure you remain informed and in control of your information.
You can decide not to receive communications or change how we contact you at any time. If you wish to do so, please contact us by emailing Turtledove@rspb.org.uk, or Operation Turtle Dove, c/o RSPB, The Lodge, Sandy, Bedfordshire, SG19 2DL
How we use personal data
We collect data you provide to us when registering on our website or communicating with us. This includes personal details (name and email address) and information about your preferred category of newsletter you would like to receive from us.
We do not normally collect or store sensitive personal data (such as information relating to health, beliefs or political affiliation).
We will send information about Operation Turtle Dove, which we think you will find interesting using the email address you have provided. We will only send email communications if we have your explicit permission to do so.
When someone is visiting our website, we collect standard internet log information and details of their behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. We collect this information in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.
Disclosing and sharing data
We never sell your details. Any information you supply to us will be used only by RSPB Images, RSPB Sales Limited (which usually trades as the RSPB Shop, a private limited company with registration number 2693778 and data controller number Z5539068) and Granite 5 Ltd with registration number 3844184 (the company hosting our website).
We may share personal data with subcontractors or suppliers who provide us with services. However, these activities will be carried out under a contract which imposes strict requirements on our supplier to keep your information confidential and secure.
How we protect data
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
We are based in the UK and we store our data within the European Union. Some organisations which provide services to us may transfer personal data outside of the EEA, but we will only allow them to do so, provided your data is adequately protected.
We will only use and store information for so long as it is required for the purposes it was collected for. How long information will be stored for depends on the information in question and what it is being used for. We continually review what information we hold and delete what is no longer required.
Your privacy rights
We want to ensure you remain in control of your personal data. Part of this is making sure you understand your legal rights, which are as follows:
- the right to confirmation as to whether or not we have your personal data and, if we do, to obtain a copy of the personal information we hold (this is known as subject access request);
- the right to have your data erased (though this will not apply where it is necessary for us to continue to use the data for a lawful reason);
- the right to have inaccurate data rectified;
- the right to object to your data being used for marketing or profiling; and
- where technically feasible, you have the right to personal data you have provided to us which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or the performance of a contract.
If you would like a copy of the data we hold on you or if you wish to exercise any of the rights above, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please keep in mind that there are exceptions to these rights and, though we will always try to respond to your satisfaction, there may be situations where we are unable to do so.
If you are not happy with our response, or you believe that your data protection or privacy rights have been infringed, you can complain to the UK Information Commissioner’s Office which regulates and enforces data protection law in the UK. Details of how to do this can be found at www.ico.org.uk.
