WePROTECT is committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of visitors to our website, those who make inquiries through our contact forms, and subscribers to newsletters and other material. Here you’ll find information on how we treat data that we collect from visitors, subscribers, and inquirers.

When someone visits www.weprotect.org, we use an analytics platform built into Squarespace to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to track data such as how many people are visiting various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Squarespace to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

We collect personal information from this website’s enquiry form and as part of the registration process for our newsletter.  We use that information for a few of reasons: to respond to enquiries; to tell you about things you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check that our records are right and to send out the newsletter.

Your personal information is shared with the Home Office for the sole purposes of answering your enquiries and to send out our newsletter.  The Home Office’s contact address is Peel Building, 2 Marsham Street, London, United Kingdom SW1P 4DF.

Your personal information is also shared with our communications partner Syrenis for the sole purpose of sending you the newsletter.  Their contact address is Syrenis Ltd, Vanguard House, Keckwick Lane, Daresbury, United Kingdom WA4 4AB. Your personal information is not shared with any other organisations.

Your personal information is stored securely and will be held for as long as necessary in order to provide the service you have requested.

You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our newsletter or by emailing info@weprotect.org.

We don't sell, rent or trade your personal information with other organisations or businesses

This privacy notice does not cover the links within this site linking to other websites. Those sites are not governed by this Privacy Policy, and if you have questions about how a site uses your information, you’ll need to check that site’s privacy statement.
