Here at the Eve Branson Foundation ("EBF", "we" or "us"), we take your privacy seriously. We're committed to protecting the privacy of any personal information you give us. For the purposes of relevant data protection legislation, EBF is the data controller of personal information we hold and process about you.
We have a philosophy here about the way we use any of your data you share with us. If you hear from us, we will always aim to be respectful, relevant and appropriate. If at any time you don't feel we've lived up to our philosophy, please let us know straight away by getting in touch with us at the address or email address set out in the “Talk to Us” section below.
We are proud to give you access to the Site, to work with you in relation to your support of EBF and to assist with related services and projects and, in return, we may collect, use and share your personal information as is necessary for us to make the Site available. We will only use personal information for our purposes in a manner permitted by relevant data protection legislation, which may include where necessary to provide the Site, related services and related projects, for our legitimate interests or where you have consented (e.g. for marketing).
What are cookies?
A cookie is a text file containing small amounts of information which is downloaded to your device when you access a website. The text file is then sent back to our server each time your browser requests a page from the server. This enables us to operate the site more effectively and load the Site so that it reflects your personal preferences, based on your previous browsing on the Site as well as keywords we may be able to gather from URLs of other webpages from which you accessed the Site. Cookies can also allow us to do various other things, as explained below.
What cookies do we use?
When you visit evebransonfoundation.com, the following types of cookies may be downloaded to your device:
Analytical and Performance Cookies
We may use analytics service providers for website traffic analysis and reporting. Analytics service providers generate statistical and other information about the use of evebransonfoundation.com by using cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how often visitors return to the Site, how long they stay and how visitors move around our Site when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our site works, for example, it helps users to find what they are looking for easily. The information generated relating to the Site may be used to create reports about the use of the Site and the analytics service provider will store this information.
Advertising and Targeting Cookies
These cookies record your visit to evebransonfoundation.com, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed to other sites. We will use this information to try and make our Site and other sites that you visit more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with others, such as carefully selected third parties, for this purpose.
We may use functional cookies that allow us to remember choices you have made on the Site so as to provide you with a more enhanced user experience by delivering content specific to your interests.
Strictly Necessary Cookies
These are cookies that are required for the administration and operation of our Site. Some cookies that we use are necessary for our Site to function properly and to enable you to move around the Site and use its features.
Third Party Cookies
We try and make it as easy as possible to share content and to see what content is popular on social networks. We add buttons to allow people to easily share to social networks. We also use Facebook to power the commenting functionality on the Site. When we include these social 'plugins', it gives those other sites the flexibility to use their own cookies. They can't read any cookies we set from evebransonfoundation.com, and we can't read any cookies they set, but it lets them do the same kind of traffic measuring that we do on the rest of evebransonfoundation.com, and it also lets them know whether you're logged into their Site. For example, if you're logged in to Facebook, read an EBF post and want to make a comment, you can do that straight away without having to log in again - we never know whether you're logged in or not, as you communicate directly with Facebook, through their plugins on our Site.
As at 7th March 2018, we use the following third party cookies:
- Mailchimp – email distribution
- Google analytics – web analytics
Further information on the general use and function of the third party cookies listed above can be found at http://optout.aboutads.info/#/.
How do I turn cookies off?

For more information please consult the “Help” section of your browser or visit www.aboutcookies.org, www.allaboutcookies.org or http://optout.aboutads.info/#/.

What information will we collect from you?
You may give us information about you by filling in forms on the Site or by communicating with us verbally, by phone, by email, by your actions or otherwise. This includes information you provide when you create an account, make a donation, request to get involved in a project or an event, update your profile information, enter a competition, promotion or survey, enquire about purchasing a product and when you report a problem with the ite. The information you give us may include the following:
Contact details including your name, email address and phone number, and if you choose to purchase products then this will also include address details for delivery of those products;
- any professional details that you choose to upload to our volunteering section;
- financial information including bank account details, card details, details of donation(s); and
- project and donation history information including whether you've taken part in a project or donated before.
If you do decide to make a donation to EBF, we may request additional information from you for due diligence purposes.
Will we use your information for marketing?
Once you have given your consent to marketing, we may display offers, promotions, products or services on the Site which we think will interest you based upon the information we collect from your cookies. You may also consent to receive information around donation opportunities or community trips. You may withdraw your consent to direct marketing at any time by contacting us at the address below.
How else will we use your information?
We may also use your information for the following purposes:
- To help us make the Site and related services and projects available to you (please see the "Will we share your information with anyone else?" section below for more information).
- To make the Site more relevant for you and our other visitors. This includes sometimes requesting personal information from you to help us run and develop the Site and associated functions.
- To arrange a community trip or project that you would like to take part in.
- To process any donation you have given.
- To send you our newsletter if you have signed up to receive it.
- If you have consented, to market community trips or projects to you, or to ask you to donate.
- To carry out surveys occasionally and to analyse our user base — ultimately we want to ensure that the Site provides everything that you — our audience — is looking for.
- To check whether you are eligible for a competition and to contact you if you win.
- To comply with the law.
- As we feel is necessary to prevent illegal activity or to protect our interests.
How long do we keep hold of the information?
There are certain reasons that we have to keep hold of some of your information. Naturally we keep your information while you are a member of EBF so that we are able to communicate with you and provide you with the information set out above but we may also keep it after you've left us, although only for as long as we need it. How long we keep it depends very much on the type of information we are holding and the purpose for which we need it. We also have to take into account our legal obligations in respect of that information. For example, we may need to keep some non-personal information for financial reporting or to comply with our legal obligations.
We may also keep information about how you have interacted with EBF or used the Site to help us improve our offering for other users, although we will remove any identifiable (or personal) information.
You can request that we delete your personal information at any time by contacting us. For more details see the “Talk to Us” section below.
Will we share your information with anyone else?
- You specifically consent to this, such as when you submit information to enquire about projects, donations or the mentoring scheme through the Site.
- We are required to do so to comply with the law or with the directions of the courts or other authorities.
- We feel it is reasonably necessary to prevent illegal activity or to protect our interests.
If we do share your information, we will only share it with our carefully selected, reputable partners and suppliers, and we require all such partners to treat your information as confidential and to fully comply with all applicable data protection laws and consumer legislation. As at 7th March 2018, these third parties include:
- Name: Mailchimp
- Function: Email distribution
- Name: Google Analytics
- Function: Web analytics
We won't rent or sell our user's details to any other organisation or individual.
How will we make sure the Site is secure?
We follow strict security procedures as to how your personal information is stored and used, and who sees it, to help stop any unauthorised person getting hold of it. All personal information you register on this Site will be located behind a firewall. We take security extremely seriously but as no system is 100% secure, we can't completely guarantee the protection of your personal information, any more than any other organisation can. So we can't accept any liability for the loss, theft or misuse of the personal information which you've registered on this Site if there is a security breach.
Will we be transferring any personal information outside the EU?
Countries outside the European Union may have a lower standard of protection for personal information than that required by EU data protection laws. The information we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored, outside the EU (including for example Morocco as this is where the EBF head office is based) and may also be processed by people operating outside the EU who work for us or one of our suppliers. If we need to transfer your data to a company based outside the EU (e.g. if our hosting company is based in the US or if it used by an employee based in Morocco), we'll take steps to make sure your personal data is handled in line with EU law. If you would like any more details on this please get in contact with us.
What about personal information relating to minors?
Protecting the online privacy of children is especially important. If you are under 18 years old, please do not provide us with your name, contact details or any other information about yourself. To find out more, please read our Terms and Conditions.
Are you protected by this policy outside the Site?
The Site contains links to other websites. Obviously, we don't have any control over them and take no responsibility for any information you give them. Other sites have different privacy and security policies, which we advise you to read.
