At Dear Black Women and Girls CIC (“Dear Black Women and Girls,” “Dear Black Women & Girls,” “we,” or “us”), we understand that protecting your privacy is of the utmost importance. 

This Privacy Policy outlines our practices in connection with the collection, use, and disclosure of information through our website, as well as other interactions with our organisation, including:

  • Social media
  • Email communications
  • Offline business interactions.

We are fully committed to complying with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018 in all aspects of our operations, and take the necessary measures to ensure that your personal information is handled in a safe and responsible manner.

The term “services” as used in this Privacy Policy, includes all of the organisation’s digital and offline presence, including the website, social media profiles, in-person interactions, and email communications.

Our Privacy Policy does not apply to individuals who are currently, or have previously been, employed by, or providing services to, our organisation, including but not limited to job applicants, employees, contractors, and owners.

We collect personal information from you during registration for a project, event, subscription to our newsletter, making a donation, or through any other means by which you provide it to us. This information may include your name, address, email address, phone number, and payment information. We use this information to process donations and event registrations, communicate with you about our activities, and improve our website and services.

We may also collect information about your use of our website, such as the pages you visit and the actions you take. We use this information to analyse website usage and improve the user experience.

We will only keep your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected, or as required by law.

We may share your personal information with third parties in the following situations:

With service providers who perform functions on our behalf, such as processing donations or sending email newsletters. These service providers are contractually bound to protect the confidentiality and security of your personal information and to use it only for the purpose of providing the services we request.

In response to a subpoena or other legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.

To investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, or violations of our terms of service.

To a third party in the event of a merger, acquisition, or other similar event.

We use cookies and similar tracking technologies to improve the functionality and performance of our website, and to personalise your experience. A cookie is a small data file that is placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit our website. Cookies allow us to remember your preferences and to understand how you use our website.

You can control the use of cookies on our website through your browser settings. However, please note that disabling cookies may limit your ability to use some features of our website.

We try our best to keep your personal information safe. We have put in place measures to protect your information from unauthorised access, misuse, or damage. However, no system is completely secure. If you think your information is no longer safe with us, please contact us right away.

Please do not send us any sensitive personal information, like your social security number, information about your race, religion, health, biometrics, criminal background, or union membership, unless we specifically ask for it. This applies to all forms of communication with us, whether it's through our services or any other means.
To process payments made through our services, we may use a third-party payment processor. If you choose to make a payment or donation through our services, your personal information will be collected by this third-party processor and will be subject to their privacy policy, not ours. We don't have any control over, or responsibility for, how this third-party processor handles your personal information.
We take the privacy of young people seriously. We don't knowingly collect personal information from anyone under 16 unless their parent or guardian gives us permission.
We may occasionally update this Privacy Policy to reflect changes in our practices or comply with legal requirements. The latest version of the Privacy Policy will always be available on our website and will govern our use of your personal information. The date at the top of this Privacy Policy shows when it was last updated. Any changes will be effective immediately upon posting the updated Privacy Policy on our Services.
