BAE Privacy Policy

Biodiversity Action Europe Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy applies to information we Biodiversity Action Europe collect about individuals who interact with our initiative. It explains what personal information we collect and how we use it.

If you have any comments or questions about this notice, feel free to contact us at biodiversityactioneurope@gmail.com.

1. Personal data that we process

The following table explains the types of data we collect and the legal basis, under current data protection legislation, on which this data is processed.

2. How we use your data

We will only use your data in a manner that is appropriate considering the basis on which that data was collected, as set out in the table at the top of this policy.

For example, we may use your personal information to:

  • reply to inquiries you send to us;

  • where you have specifically agreed to this, send you communications by email relating to our work which we think may be of interest to you.

3. When we share your data

We will only pass your data to third parties in the following circumstances:

  • you have provided your explicit consent for us to pass data to a named third party;

  • we are required by law to share your data.

In addition, we will only pass data to third parties outside of the EU where appropriate safeguards are in place as defined by Article 46 of the General Data Protection Regulation.

4. How long we keep your data

We take the principles of data minimisation and removal seriously and have internal policies in place to ensure that we only ever ask for the minimum amount of data for the associated purpose and delete that data promptly once it is no longer required.

Where data is collected on the basis of consent, we will seek renewal of consent at least every three years.

5. Rights you have over your data

You have a range of rights over your data, which include the following:

  • Where data processing is based on consent, you may revoke this consent at any time and we will make it as easy as possible for you to do this.

  • You have the right to ask for rectification and/or deletion of your information.

  • You have the right of access to your information.

A full summary of your legal rights over your data can be found on the Information Commissioner’s website here: https://ico.org.uk/. Please note, we are not a registered Charity and are not legally bound to the GDPR but rather attempt to follow the principles to the best of our ability.

If you would like to access the rights listed above, or any other legal rights you have over your data under current legislation, please get in touch with us.

Please note that relying on some of these rights, such as the right to deleting your data, will make it impossible for us to continue to deliver some services to you. However, where possible we will always try to allow the maximum access to your rights while continuing to deliver as many services to you as possible.

6. Cookies & usage tracking

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that is downloaded on to your computer when you visit a website.

 

Cookies are used by many websites and can do a number of things, eg remembering your preferences, recording what you have put in your shopping basket, and counting the number of people looking at a website.

Where cookies are used to collect personal data, we list these purposes in section 1 above, along with other personal data that we collect. However, we also use some cookies that do not collect personal information but that do help us collect anonymous information about how people use our website. We use Google Analytics for this purpose.  Google Analytics generates statistical and other information about website usage by means of cookies, which are stored on users' computers. The information collected by Google Analytics about usage of our website is not personally identifiable.

7. Modifications

We may modify this Privacy Policy from time to time and will publish the most current version on our website. If a modification meaningfully reduces your rights, we'll notify people whose personal data we hold and is affected.

8. Signing the Call for Action

  • If you are under 18 years of age at the time of signing, you will need to ask permission from a guardian.

  • We reserve the right to deny signatures of people and/or organisations that do not align with BAE's mission.

  • In the event that Biodiversity Action Europe presents the signatures to a third party, only your name and country will be shared, unless you have ticked the option to remain anonymous.
