3. Who is collecting your information?

We collect information at several different points on our website.

We use Google Analytics to analyse the use of our site. Google Analytics generates statistical information about the use of our site through ‘cookies’. A cookie consists of information sent by a web server (our site) to a web browser (the application you are using to access the site, such as Google Chrome) and stored by the browser. Information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.

The information generated relating to our website is used to create reports about the use of the website. Google will store this information. Google’s privacy policy is available at: www.google.com/privacypolicy.html

When you use our secure online donation pages, your transaction will be processed by a secure partner company and the information you give, such as your payment card number and contact information, is only provided so that these transactions can take place. Our website will not retain any of your payment information.
