STARS is committed to safeguarding your privacy online. We use the information we collect about you to help us understand more about how our site is used and to be able to send you communications about STARS that may be of interest to you, either electronically or otherwise. The ‘personally identifiable information’ is information that enables us to identify you, such as your email address, name, title, and address.
Please read the following policy to understand how your personal information will be treated. This policy may change from time to time so please check back periodically.
A cookie is a text-only string of information that we pass to your computer’s hard disk through your web-browser so that the website can remember who you are. Cookies cannot be used by themselves to identify you. For more information about cookies, please see www.allaboutcookies.org.
We use two types of cookies on our website: per session cookies, which are temporary cookies that remain in the cookies file of your browser until you leave the site; and persistent cookies, which remain in the cookies file of your browser for longer (although how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie). These cookies are used to store state information between visits to a site.
We use persistent cookies to provide certain services, so that you do not have to log-in repeatedly between visits.
STARS uses the information we collect about you to help us with understanding more about how our site is used and to be able to send you communications that may be of interest to you, either electronically or otherwise.
When you are on the STARS website and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with STARS alone unless stated otherwise. For example, when you are using our secure online donation pages you are going through mycharitypage.com and it is clear on the donation page when you are going through them.
As a general rule, STARS will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information, except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it. When you are using our secure online donation pages you are going through to a partner company and the information you give such as your credit card number and contact information is provided so that the transaction can take place.
If you indicated that you are interested in receiving regular information about STARS’ work we may send you communications regarding our work and activities, either electronically or otherwise. In addition, we may send you direct mail that we feel may be of interest to you.
STARS does not sell, rent or share user information with anyone. Your information will not be shared with third parties without your consent.
The accuracy of your individual identifying information is important to us. If you change email address or any of the other information we hold is inaccurate or out of date, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or write to STARS, 11 Belgrave Rd, London SW1V 1RB, UK.
STARS is committed to taking reasonable steps to protect the individual identifying information that you provide to us.
The safety of children is very important to us. Children should always ask a parent for permission before sending personal information to anyone online.
When you give STARS personal information that information may be stored and processed outside of the UK. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, STARS cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
