Our Privacy Policy (GDPR)

Overview:

The Bansang Hospital Appeal is committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of visitors to our web site. In particular, we want you to know that the Bansang Hospital Appeal is not in the business of selling, renting or trading email lists with other companies and businesses for marketing purposes. We just don’t do that sort of thing. In this Privacy Policy, we’ve provided lots of detailed information on when and why we collect your personal information, how we use it, and how we keep it secure.

Browser cookies:

The Bansang Hospital Appeal does not store website cookies. However, our website does include different features from three third party providers that do use cookies. The first one is HelloBar, which is a company based in the Netherlands that provides the banner at the top of the website. We use this to share latest news along with newsletter download links. You can view their privacy policy here. The second company is Youtube, who we use for hosting our embedded videos. You can view their privacy policy here. The final third party tool we use is the Facebook ‘likes’ widget, which you can see at the bottom of any of our pages. This tool allows visitors to directly like and connect with our charity page on Facebook. You can view Facebook’s privacy policy here. If you would like to learn more about cookies, along with controlling and deleting them, please visit www.aboutcookies.org/

Analytics:

When someone visits www.bansanghospitalappeal.org we use a third party service, WordPress Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in ways which do not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow WordPress to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

Mailing List:

As part of the registration process for our e-newsletter, we collect personal information. We use that information for a number of reasons: to tell you about the things you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy to continue receiving our mail. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses. All our records are password protected and secure.

Mail Delivery Provider:

We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter and maintain our email subscriber list. They help us gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. Our subscriber list is protected by MailChimp using industry leading encryption. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing charity director Anita Smith MBE MRG.

Third Parties:

The Bansang Hospital Appeal will never share your personal details with a third party, unless we have written to you directly and gained your consent to do so. An example of such a situation would be where a key stakeholder at Bansang Hospital (such as the CEO) would like to write to a supporter directly to thank them for a donation. Under such circumstances, the charity director (Anita Smith MBE MRG) would write to you to gain your consent. No information will be shared without that consent.

Access to your personal information:

You are entitled to view, amend or delete the personal information that we hold (as long as doing so does not obstruct our legal obligations to authorities such as HMRC). If you would like to view, amend or delete your information, please email charity director Anita Smith MBE MRG.

Financial data security:

All online donations are processed securely and independently from us by Virgin Money Giving. We also retain paper records for offline standing order donations. These records are accessible by the BHA’s director (Anita Smith MBE) and accountant (Richard Harvey). This financial information is retained for the minimum time necessary to fulfil our legal requirements with HMRC.

Changes to this privacy policy:

BHA may make updates to this Privacy Notice if necessary, for example, if we make any changes to our data protection policies and procedures in order to further strengthen data protection. Any changes will comply with the principles of the GDPR and the updated Privacy Notice will continue to be published on our website.

 

If you have any questions about our privacy policy, please email Anita Smith MBE MRG.
