Protecting your privacy online
There are three main principles underpinning our policy:
Worthing Cat Welfare Trust does not capture or store personally identifying information (such as your email address, name, title, or postal address) without your knowledge when you visit our site.
You are always able to choose to provide such information to us.
We respect your email privacy. We will only send you mailings from Worthing Cat Welfare Trust if you have agreed to this. We do not pass on your details (including your email address) to other organisations or individuals without your prior consent.
What data is being collected and how?
The only time we capture your personal details is when you submit your entry form to our email list. We will collect some basic information from you. This will include your email address, your name, postcode, gender and age range. We also ask some further, voluntary questions so we can gain a clearer understanding of our users. Your responses help us to refine our activities in the future. We collect data listing which of our pages are most frequently visited and by which types of users. The site automatically monitors IP addresses (the domain from which you access the internet) and which pages have been accessed when. This information is not linked to any personal data, so browsing is anonymous.
How will my information be used?
In entering our email list, you are agreeing to be sent the Worthing Cat Welfare Trust email newsletter.
You will not receive other mailings from us unless you agree to this.
You are free to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time.
Worthing Cat Welfare Trust will not sell, trade or rent your personal information to others.
Except as may be required by law, Worthing Cat Welfare Trust does not pass your personal data to outside organisations or individuals without your express consent.
Non-personal data (such as aggregate statistics about numbers of visitors, entries, traffic patterns and related site information) may be shared by Worthing Cat Welfare Trust with its communications agencies in order to review the competition’s performance.
These statistics will include no personally identifying information.
What if you change your policy in future?
We may store information about your visit to our website using cookies (files which are sent by us to your computer or other access devices) which we can access when you visit our site in future.
We do this to store a unique token when you log in to the Worthing Cat Welfare Trust or activate certain preferences (like the Text-only version) so that we can keep you logged in or maintain those preferences as you browse around our website, and if you return within a few days.
Information on deleting or controlling cookies is available at www.AboutCookies.org. Please note that by deleting our cookies or disabling future cookies you may not be able to access certain areas or features of our site.
