Your privacy is Important
At Bergeron Tree Service, we rely on the generosity and commitment of our supporters to carry out our vital work of protecting the environment and helping people lift themselves out of poverty. That is why we want to be completely transparent about the information we hold on you and the way we handle it.
Your privacy and security is important to us and we promise to protect all personal data you share with us.
We will never sell your data. We will only share your data with carefully selected partners who do work for us and have guaranteed to keep your details confidential and secure. This will include organisations that send mail, process financial transactions, contact supporters or enquirers on our behalf for fundraising or administrative purposes.
We also send Gift Aid data to HMRC. We will only pass personal data to these organisations if they have signed a contract that requires them to:
Abide by the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation
Treat your information as carefully as we would
Only use the information for the purposes it was supplied
We would also share your data if we are legally required to do so, e.g. by a law enforcement agency legitimately exercising a power or if compelled by an order of the Court.
We ensure that there are appropriate technical and organisational security measures in place to protect your personal details in accordance with current data protection legislation. This means:
We secure access to all transactional areas of our websites using ‘https’ technology.
Access to your personal data is password-protected, and sensitive data (such as payment card information) is secured and tokenised to ensure it is protected.
We regularly monitor our systems for possible vulnerabilities and attacks.
We undertake regular reviews of who has access to information that we hold to ensure that your information is only accessible by appropriately trained staff, volunteers and contractors.
We always strive for best practice in our fundraising and communications and adhere to our legal obligations, including the General Data Protection Regulation, the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003, Fundraising Preference Service and the Telephone Preference Service. We adhere to the regulations set by the Fundraising Regulator who actively regulates charities carrying out fundraising activities.
