Privacy Notice

This privacy notice explains how we use and look after the personal information we collect from you. Savannah Education Trust takes seriously the privacy of the people that support us. We take every care to keep your information secure and to prevent any unauthorised access to or use of it.

What Information Do We Collect About You?

We collect information about you when you make a donation to us, or when you sign-up for our mailing list. The information you give us may include your name, address, e-mail address and phone number.

Information relating to usage of our website is collected using cookies. Cookies are text files placed on your computer to collect standard Internet log information and visitor behaviour information.

Why do we need to collect and use your personal data?

We will only use personal data for any purpose for which it has been provided. If you choose to supply us with your personal information, we may use it:-

  • To process your donation
  • For internal record keeping
  • To send you regular updates by email or post, if you opt in to this service
  • To inform supporters of public meetings about the work of Savannah

Who might we share your information with?

This information will be held in complete confidence, and Savannah Education Trust will never sell, rent or trade this information to a third party for commercial purposes. The only exception to this is to enable us to process online payments as we will pass on your billing address details to our payment providers (CAF), as without doing this we would not be able to process your online payments.

When we provide services, we want to make them easy to use, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies.
