Privacy – how we handle your personal data

This page explains how we use any personal information we (GM Freeze) collect about website users, people who subscribe to our e-mail list, join as supporters, order resources or use our services in any other way.

The GM Freeze Information Assurance Policy explains in detail how we ensure that we gather, store and use information about our staff, board members, members, supporters and other individuals securely, fairly and legally.

Visitors to our website

When someone visits our website we collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this in a way which does not personally identify the visitor. This enables us to gather statistics on such things as number of visitors to the website, most popular pages, how long people stay on the site etc. This information is used to help improve the website and the user’s experience. We use Google Analytics to collect this information and further information on Google’s privacy policy can be found here.

Supplying personal identifiable information

The information you provide to GM Freeze when contacting us by any means will be added to our database in accordance with the Data Protection Act and this policy. This information may be used for, but is not limited to, purposes such as mailing you GM Freeze publications, administering your support or membership, informing you of our news, events and fundraising activities and other related GM Freeze activities. We aim to keep this information as up to date as possible and ask you to let us know if any of your personal information changes.

We will do everything we can to prevent your personal information from being used illegally. We will never pass it on to anyone except that from time to time we may use third parties such as mailing houses, software suppliers and social media providers to send out information on our behalf. These third parties are only allowed to use the information for the specific purpose for which the data has been supplied and they must fully comply with the Data Protection Act.

People who are under 18

If you are under 18, please ensure you obtain your parent or guardian’s consent before submitting any personal information to GM Freeze. We encourage parents and guardians to be aware of the activities which their children are participating in and to discourage their children from providing any personal information without adult guidance and consent.
