3. Who is collecting your information?
4. With whom Cyfannol may share your information
As a general rule, Cyfannol 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 making a donation using an external website 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.
5. What are my choices regarding collection, use and distribution of my information?
If you indicated that you are interested in receiving regular information about Cyfannol we will send you communications regarding Cyfannol’s work and activities, either electronically or otherwise. In addition, we may send you direct mail that we feel may be of interest to you.
Cyfannol does not sell, rent or share user information with anyone. We may on occasion work with 3rd parties to contact our supporters about Cyfannol, however the 3rd party would be bound by a confidentiality agreement which would prevent them from using this information for any other purpose.
6. Will my information ever go outside the UK?
Cyfannol is aware that countries outside the European Union have differing approaches to data privacy laws, and that enforcement may not be as robust as it is within the European Union. No data will be sent outside the European Union.
7. How to access, correct or delete your information
The Data Protection Act 1998 allows you to request a copy of the personal information relating to you which is kept by Cyfannol. A small fee of £10 may be charged when providing you with this information.
If your contact details change, or if you believe that the information that Cyfannol holds about you is out of date or inaccurate, please get in touch with us and provide us with the correct details.

8. How does Cyfannol protect my personal identifiable information?
Cyfannol is committed to taking reasonable steps to protect the individual identifying information that you provide to us.
9. What security precautions are in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of my information?
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to protect your personal information, Cyfannol 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. All e-mails sent to Cyfannol will be monitored and checked to ensure our systems operate effectively. The personal information we collect from you online is stored by us on databases protected through access controls, firewall technology and other appropriate security measures. However, such security measures cannot prevent all loss, misuse or alteration of personal information and we are not responsible for any damage or liability relating to such incidents.
If you do not want to accept cookies you can easily disable this function by changing the settings on your Internet browser. However, if you block cookies you will not have the opportunity to benefit from all the features on our website.
