What data do we collect?
In general, we collect emails, phone numbers, names, and regions. We will also collect specific data about events and actions, and occasionally take event specific information.
How do we collect your data?
Information we collect will be given by the individual either through an online form or in person, or collected through other publicly accessible resources like social media.
Why do we collect your data?
We collect data primarily to contact our supporters and be able to engage them in our activities. We don’t want any data that isn’t relevant to this or the purpose of furthering our mission, it just clogs up our database!
How will we use your data?
We will use your data to contact you through email and text and to group our supporters by region, so that the person contacting them is someone from their area.
If you have taken action your data may be shared with the solicitor representing you or with trusted individuals waiting to collect you from a police station, or organising this support system.
How do we store your data?
All personal data collected is subject to access controls, is encrypted, and stored in secure servers.
