Welcome to our Privacy Policy

We take your privacy very seriously. Please read this privacy policy carefully as it contains important information on who we are and how and why we collect, store, use and share your personal information. It also explains your rights in relation to your personal information and how to contact us or supervisory authorities in the event you have a complaint.

We collect, use and are responsible for certain personal information about you. When we do so we are subject to data protection laws which apply across the European Union (including in the United Kingdom) and we are responsible as ‘controller’ of that personal information for the purposes of those laws.

 

It is Furlonteer's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website. This Privacy Policy applies to https://www.furlonteer.com/ (hereinafter, "us", "we", or "https://www.furlonteer.com/"). We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting personally identifiable information you may provide us through the Website. We have adopted this privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") to explain what information may be collected on our Website, how we use this information, and under what circumstances we may disclose the information to third parties. This Privacy Policy applies only to information we collect through the Website and does not apply to our collection of information from other sources.   

 

This Privacy Policy sets forth the general rules and policies governing your use of our Website. Depending on your activities when visiting our Website, you may be required to agree to additional terms and conditions.

 

Personal information we collect about you

We may collect and use the following personal information about you:

  • your name and contact information, including email address;

  • your personal or professional interests to enable us to connect you to a charity.

  • your professional online presence, eg LinkedIn profile.

  • Information about how you use our website, IT, communication and other systems
     

This personal information is required to provide the Furlonteer service to you. If you do not provide personal information we ask for, it may delay or prevent us from connecting you with a charity.

How and why we use your personal information

Under data protection law, we can only use your personal information if we have a proper reason for doing so, e.g.:

  • to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations;

  • for the performance of our contract with you or to take steps at your request before entering into a contract;

  • for our legitimate interests or those of a third party; or

  • where you have given consent.
     

A legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information, so long as this is not overridden by your own rights and interests.

Website Visitors 

Like most website operators, Furlonteer collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Furlonteer's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Furlonteer's visitors use its website. From time to time, Furlonteer may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.   

 

Furlonteer also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on  blog posts. Furlonteer only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.   
 

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information 

Certain visitors to Furlonteer's websites choose to interact with Furlonteer in ways that require Furlonteer to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Furlonteer gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog to provide a username and email address.   

Security 

The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.   

 

Links To External Sites 

Our Service may contain links to external sites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party's site. We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy and terms and conditions of every site you visit. We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites, products or services.
