Preservation of your privacy is important to the Rufford Foundation and we are committed to letting you know how we use your personal information and to making only responsible use of your data.
- Information about you
1.1 We will collect personal information from you when you or your organisation enquire about our activities, or when you register on our website to apply for funding. This may include your name, title, email address, physical address, telephone numbers and job title, date of birth and education history. We may also ask for some additional, non-personal information.
- Our use of this information
2.1 Your personal information will only be used to process your application, to verify your identity for fraud prevention purposes and to provide you with information relating to our Grant Programme.
2.2 We will share your information with our partner organisations only for the purpose of assessing your eligibility for grant funding.
3.1 We will take reasonable precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of information you give us.
3.2 Communications in connection with this service may be sent by e-mail. For ease of use and compatibility, communications (other than payments where applicable) will not be sent in an encrypted form unless you require it and provide the certification to enable us to communicate with you in that way. E-mail unless encrypted is not a fully secure means of communication. Whilst we endeavour to keep our systems and communications protected against viruses and other harmful effects we cannot bear responsibility for all communications being virus-free.
