What information do we collect about you
You can visit our website without disclosing any personal information about yourself. There are times, however, when we may request information from you. We collect information you give to us by email, various forms on the website, over the telephone, face to face or by postal mail.
We collect information about you when you make a donation, become a member, complete an online action, sign a petition, fill in one of our questionnaires and provide us with data about your campaigning interests or interact with our social media tools. Website usage information may be collected using cookies.
How will we use the information about you?
LIEN will never share your data with third parties. We may data with our working groups, but only in order to fulfil the aims of LIEN. This enables groups to publicise LIEN events and information. All LIEN campaigning and working groups follow data protection guidelines. If you would prefer to be excluded from the sharing of information with other LIEN groups, please contact us so we can ensure your details are not shared.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect
Access to your information and amending your information
If you would like a copy of some or all of the personal information we hold about you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We want to make sure that your personal information is accurate and up to date. You may ask us to correct or remove information you think is inaccurate. We will retain some basic information to avoid sending you unwanted materials in the future and to ensure we do not duplicate information. This is superseded by your right to erasure (“the right to be forgotten”). Following this request all of your data will be removed from all LIEN systems and any financial agreements, such a Direct Debit, will be ended.

Transfer of your data internationally
The DPA and GDPR restrict the transfer of data outside of the EU and EEA. Our primary web server is located in the UK, however some of the suppliers and systems that we use can be based in other countries which are outside of the EU and EEA. This may occur, for example, by using online services with servers based in other countries or which route data via such systems. LIEN will ensure that information which you provide is only transferred to other countries (which do not have data protection laws equal to the DPA and GDPR) provided that the organisations involved have certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield (for organisations based in the USA) or similar stringent certification to ensure that adequate safeguards are in place to protect your rights and your data.
