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.
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.
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.
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.

Furlonteer may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its website. Furlonteer may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Furlonteer does not disclose your personally-identifying information.
To enrich and perfect your online experience, Furlonteer uses "Cookies", similar technologies and services provided by others to display personalized content, appropriate advertising and store your preferences on your computer.
