We are committed to safeguarding your privacy; this policy sets out how we will treat your personal information.
What information do we collect?
We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal data:
(a) information about your computer and about your visits to and use of this website (including your IP address, geographical location, browser type, referral source, length of visit and number of page views);
(b) information relating to any transactions carried out between you and us on or in relation to this website, including information relating to any charitable donations you make;
(c) information that you provide to us (including information required to claim Gift Aid on your behalf)
(d) information that you provide to us for the purpose of subscribing to our website services, email notifications and/or newsletters (including both print and electronic communications);

(f) anonymised demographic information through Google Analytics which will not be attributed to any other information you provide us.
A cookie consists of information sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.
We may use both “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies on the website. We will use the session cookies to: keep track of you whilst you navigate the website; and to keep track of the contents of you shopping/donation basket. We will use the persistent cookies to: enable our website to recognise you when you visit.
Session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser. Persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date.
Our payment services providers may also send you cookies.
Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies. (For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector.) This will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites. You can opt-out of Google Analytics Advertising Features through Ads Settings and Ad Settings for mobile apps, to find out more look at Google Analytics’ list of currently available opt-outs for the web.
Using your personal data
We may use your personal information to:
(a) administer the website;
(b) improve your browsing experience by personalising the website;
(c) enable your use of the services available on the website;
(d) send to you goods purchased via the website, supply to you services purchased via the website and process donations you make via our website.
(e) send statements and invoices to you, and collect payments from you
(f) send you email notifications which you have specifically requested;
(g) send to you our email and/or postal newsletter and other marketing communications relating to Pregnancy Twinning or Chasing Zero by post or by email or similar technology (you can inform us at any time if you no longer require marketing communications);
(h) deal with enquiries and complaints made by or about you relating to the website; and where you submit personal information for publication on our website, we will publish and otherwise use that information in accordance with the license you grant to us.
All our website financial transactions are handled through our payment services provider, Paypal. You should only provide your personal information to Paypal after reviewing their privacy policies (available at www.paypal.com). We will share information with Paypal only to the extent necessary for the purposes of processing payments you make via our website.
In addition, we may disclose information about you:
(a) to the extent that we are required to do so by law;
(b) in connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings;
(c) in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk)
Security of your personal data
Pregnancy Twinning and Chasing Zero will hold your personal information jointly and it will be stored on the database we use for both groups of supporters. We will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.
We will store all the personal information you provide on our secure servers. All electronic transactions you make to or receive from us (and our service provision partners) will be encrypted using SSL technology.
We do not store credit card details nor do we share customer details with any 3rd parties. This information is held by our Payment Processor, PayPal.
Of course, data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet.
You may instruct us to provide you with any personal information we hold about you.
You may instruct us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes by email at any time. (In practice, you will usually expressly agree in advance to our use of your personal data for marketing purposes and we also provide you with an opportunity to opt-out of the use of your personal data for marketing purposes each time we are in contact.)
