This policy explains how we collect and treat any information you give us. You won’t find any complicated legal terms or long passages of unreadable text. We’ve no desire to trick you into agreeing to something you might later regret.
We value your privacy as much as we do our own, so we’re committed to keeping your personal information safe. We’re uncomfortable with the information companies, governments, and other organisations keep on file, so we ask for only the bare minimum from you. We’ll never use your personal information for any reason other than why you gave it, and we’ll never give anyone access to it unless we’re forced to by law.
We collect your email address when you sign up for one of our newsletters. We ask for your contact information when you apply to invest. If we do, we protect it in exactly the same way as if you give it to us directly.
If you sign up for a newsletter, we store your email address in MailChimp, which is the marketing platform we prefer. When you invest, your information is stored in our accounts software offline. We chose these systems partly for their commitment to security.
We occasionally use your contact information to send you details of our activities and events. When we do, you have the option to unsubscribe from these communications and we won’t send them to you again. We might also email or phone you about our activities and events, but if you tell us not to, we won’t get in touch again. We will use your information to send you updates or reminders.
The Steering Committee is responsible for the security of your information. You can contact them by email if you have any concerns about the information we store.
If we change the contents of this policy, those changes will become effective the moment we publish them on our website.
