When you visit the WFBG website, we do not collect your personal data (such as name, address, phone number, email) unless you choose to provide it, for instance to join our mailing list, to make a purchase or a donation, etc.. In such cases, the personal data may be processed via external secure sites which are committed to confidentiality (e.g. Mailchimp or Paypal). In this way, the WFBG website may be linked to the websites/applications of other parties. We will ensure that any such external third parties have their own privacy policies which are in line with our commitments to you under this policy.
Anonymised information is collected during user visits to the WFBG website, and processed by Google Analytics – this includes data on device types, time spent, links followed, etc., and helps us make ongoing improvements to our website. Google Analytics generates cookies that identify whether you’ve visited the website before, which pages you visit etc. These cookies cannot be used to identify individuals; they are used for statistical purposes only and the data never shows any confidential information. The data itself is only visible to the website owner (WFBG) and the relevant team at Google. We may share anonymised statistics on e.g. the numbers of unique users visiting our site with our donors and supporters more widely.
