What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Name, surname and email address so that we know who you are and that you’ve joined the RTFI Alliance. We also ask you about where you live in and for some demographic information. This is so we can make sure we’re reaching individuals who have an important role to play in realising the Right to Food in Kenya.
When visitors leave comments on the website we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
Our contact form plugin does not store any of your submitted data on a remote storage platform.
Unless you have disabled Cookies in your Internet browser, we will store Cookies on your computer/device when you visit our website. These Cookies (small text files containing a string of characters) enable us to recognise you as a returning visitor, track your usage behaviour, as well as store your user preferences and other information. We do this to remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the website. Cookies also allow us to provide custom, personalised content and information, monitor the effectiveness of our communication campaigns, monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors and pages viewed.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this website may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites will behave in the same way as if the visitor has visited the source website.
All website traffic data is sent to and processed by Google Analytics, but personal information is not processed or stored and IP addresses are anonymized.
How we protect your data and who we share your data with
We use a combination of technical, procedural and operational measures to keep your information safe and secure. We do not share your personal data with any third party organisations, developers or marketing agencies. If you choose to receive our newsletter/RSS updates, we add your name and email address to our MailChimp mailing list. You can choose to opt out of our mailing list at any time via your account settings page.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
Information gathered by Google Analytics is also kept indefinitely for our logistical recording purposes, but this data is purely statistical in nature and cannot be used to identify specific users in any way.
What rights you have over your data
You can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Please send an email to our website administrator Peak & Dale at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to review a copy of your personal data or have it erased from our database. We will honour your request as soon as possible.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Anonymised website traffic is tracked by Google Analytics.
