WWF-UK takes the responsibility of protecting your privacy very seriously. As part of this responsibility, we will make it clear when your data is being collected, and it will only be used for the purpose you provided it for. By using this website and submitting any forms on it, we process the following personal information:
If you sign up on behalf of your company to arrange hosting a Save Our Wild Isles business film screening, we will collect some basic details about the event as well as the name of the person hosting the screening, which may not always be you. If you sign up to a campaign action that is hosted on a third-party site you may be required to provide additional information for the purposes of that campaign action. For example your full address will be collected and sent to your elected representative to confirm you are one of their constituents.
We collect this information directly from you for the following reasons:
In a limited number of circumstances WWF-UK may share some of your information with our partner organisations, the RSPB and the National Trust. For instance:
If you have supported the People’s Plan for Nature, we may also need to share your name and postcode with UK government officials and MPs to demonstrate who has signed up within their constituency. This will only happen in the unlikely event that they require further evidence about the number of people who have backed the plan.
