At TKC we collect different types of information about our users for four main reasons:
1. To provide personalised services unique to individual users.
2. To help us to monitor and improve the services we offer.
3. If we have permission from the user, or where otherwise allowed by law, to market services to them.
1. We do our very best to protect your privacy by using security technology appropriately.
• we make sure that we have appropriate security measures to protect your information; and
• we make sure that when we ask another organisation to provide a service for us, they have appropriate security measures.
2. We will respect your privacy. You should receive marketing/promotional (whether by email, post, SMS or telephone) only from us and, if you agree, from other organisations we have carefully chosen. We will make sure it is clear when you can make these choices, for example, we have boxes you need to tick if you want to receive marketing/promotional and you can change your preferences if you no longer want to receive it. However, we may email you occasionally with information or questions about your subscription or postings, for example, with reminders, warnings or copyright requests.
3. We will collect and use individual user details only if we have your permission or we have sensible business reasons for doing so, such as collecting enough information to manage subscriptions.
4. We will be clear in our dealings with you as to what information about you we will collect and how we will use it.
5. We will use personal information only for the purposes for which it was originally collected and we will make sure we delete it securely.
6. Our site is accessible via the internet. This means that people around the world who access our website can see anything you post on the website, for example, comments about a blog. Please note that we do not allow comments on this site presently, but may allow them in the future.
7. If we or our service providers transfer any information out of the European Economic Area (EEA), it will only be done with the relevant protection (stated under UK law) being in place.
How we use your information, and what information do we collect?
We collect information on you:
• when you subscribe to The Kamugasa Challenge Newsletter
• when you use the website
• through cookies, and
• if you choose to reveal information in postings, that is, if and when comments are enabled.
Certain services that we provide may involve us collecting extra information (e.g. in relation to donations to support TKC), such as where you are, so the service can be provided as designed.
Subscription to the Newsletter
The minimum information we need to subscribe you is your name, and email address. We may ask you more questions for different services, including promotions of say, a book(s). Unless we say otherwise, you have to answer all the questions when subscribing to the Newsletter.
After you have subscribed to our Newsletter, and with your permission, we may send you emails we think may interest you. Newsletters may be personalised based on what you have been reading on thekamugasachallenge.com. At any time you can decide not to receive these emails and will be able to ‘unsubscribe’.
Use of children’s data
We do not knowingly collect or store any personal information about children under the age of 16 and we do not offer any of our products or services directly to children under the age of 13.
Who we share data with
We will not share your personal information with others for marketing/promotional purposes unless you have given us your permission. If we have your permission, we will share your information only with other organisations we have chosen carefully.
We can access and release personal information to keep to relevant laws and government requests, to operate our systems properly and to protect both us and our users.
Any other organisations that access your information in the course of providing services on our behalf will be governed by strict contractual restrictions to make sure that they protect your information and keep to data-protection and privacy laws which apply. We may also independently audit these service providers to make sure that they meet our standards. We may use service providers to help us run our site (or services available on the sites), some of whom may be based outside the EEA.
Some of our webpages use plug-ins from other organisations (for example Twitter or LinkedIn). These other organisations may use information about your visit to our website on their pages. For more information on how these organisations use information, please read their privacy policies.
Cookies are small text files that are stored by the browser (for example, Internet Explorer or Safari) on your computer or mobile phone. They allow websites to store things like user preferences. You can think of cookies as providing a ‘memory’ for the website, so that it can recognise you when you come back and respond appropriately.
1. For statistical purposes to track how many users we have and how often they visit our website. We collect information listing which of our pages are most frequently visited, and by which types of users and from which countries.
2. We use other organisations to collect anonymous user information, sometimes through cookies and web beacons, (information embedded in images which allow them to analyse how the website is being used and the number of visitors).
3. Placing cookies on your computer means we can show you pages that you might be interested in, and allows us to control the number of times you see them and measure how effective particular pages have been.
4. We may use ‘Flash’ cookies to store your preferences for your media player (for example, volume and so on). If we don’t use them, you may not be able to watch some video content.
5. You can turn cookies off but if you do this, you may not be able to use all services on our website. This is because we won’t be able to limit what you see by using cookies. However, you will still be able to see our content.
We use Google Analytics on our site for anonymous reporting of site usage. If you would like to opt-out of Google Analytics monitoring your behaviour on our site please use this link ( https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/)
