Tigers4Ever Privacy Policy

Tigers4Ever is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.

This policy sets out the basis on which any personal data which we collect from you, or which you provide to us, will be processed by us.  Please note that in the course of using our website you may be offered the option of choosing to permit third parties to process your personal data, where this happens those third parties will not be bound by the terms of this privacy policy.

Please read this policy carefully to understand how your personal data will be dealt with. By visiting www.Tigers4Ever.org you are accepting and consenting to the practices described in this policy.

For the purpose of the Data Protection Act 1998 (the “Act”), the Data Controller is Tigers4Ever, a charity registered with the Charities Commission of England and Wales, with charity number 1160528, of 43 Ranworth Drive, Lowton, Warrington, WA3 2SY, Cheshire. The Data Protection Act 1998 will be updated on 25 May 2018 to incorporate a reform of the data protection landscape which includes the Data Protection Bill to comply with the new Europe-wide law the General Data Protection Regulation 2018 (GDPR).

From 25 May 2018 the GDPR will regulate how Tigers4Ever handles your personal data and how we may contact you, with your express consent.

What is personal data?

Any information related to a person which can be used to directly, or indirectly, identify the person. It can be a name, a photo, an email address, bank details, posts on social media, medical information, or a computer IP address.

Is all personal data treated the same?

No, personal data is broken down further into different categories of personal data. “Special Category personal data” is any information which relates to a person which reveals their racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, and the processing of genetic data, biometric data for the purposes of uniquely identifying a natural person, data concerning health or data concerning a person’s sex life or sexual orientation. Processing of “special category personal data” is prohibited unless certain requirements are met. Tigers4Ever does not collect, process or hold “special category personal data”.

Parental consent is required to process the personal data of children under the age of 16 for online services. Some European Economic Area (EEA) member states may legislate for a lower age of consent of 13, however, we will comply with the higher law when processing the personal data of children.

What are the GDPR Principles?

The GDPR Principles require that personal data must be:

  •  Processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner;
  •  Collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner which is incompatible with those purposes;
  •  Adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed;
  •  Accurate, and where necessary kept up to date; every reasonable step must be taken to ensure that personal data which are inaccurate, having regard to the purposes for which they are processed, are erased or rectified without delay;
  •  Kept in a form which permits identification of people for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data are processed; and
  •  Processed in a manner which ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures.
