The use of your information we collect

We may use your information for the following purposes:

  • to make your actions known on our website and to third parties. For example, your name may appear together with your comments on our website. To inspire others to take action, we may also show your name and a summary of what you have just done on our website, for instance, if you sign a petition or make a donation. If you petition someone using our website then we may send your name and email address with your message to them;

  • to send you updates and alerts by email, mail, instant messaging, push notifications or telephone.

We will only process your personal information as necessary for the purposes described above. In doing so, we will consider the balance between your privacy and our interest in processing and refrain from processing if your privacy interest overrides our legitimate interest. In exceptional circumstances we may also be required by law to disclose or otherwise process your personal information. We will tell you, when we ask you to provide information about yourself, if provision of the requested information is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation or, on the other hand, if it is purely voluntary and there will be no implications if you decline to provide the information. If you are uncertain as to Alnitak Project’s need for information that we request from you, please contact the Alnitak Project representative asking for the information, or contact us (see below), with your query. Disclosure and international transfer of your information We may disclose personal information about you where we have obtained your consent or where it is reasonably necessary for the various purposes set out above:

  • to a Alnitak based in the country you took action from on this website;

  • to service providers who host our website or other information technology systems or otherwise hold or process your information on our behalf, under at least the same level of strict conditions of confidentiality and security;

  • to judicial authorities or other public authorities, in case our legal or moral responsibility compels us to do so (e.g. if you express intent about performing a terrorist activity);

  • or litigation counterparties, in any country or territory, although only if we are legally required to do so and have no satisfactory basis or prospect to challenge disclosure.

These disclosures may involve transferring your personal information overseas. If you are dealing with us within the European Economic Area, you should be aware that this may include transfers to countries outside the European Economic Area, which do not have similarly strict data privacy laws. In those cases, where we transfer personal data to the independent Alnitak or our service providers, we will ensure that our arrangements with them are governed by data transfer agreements or mechanisms, designed to ensure that your personal information is protected (including, where appropriate, under an agreement on terms approved for this purpose by the European Commission). Please contact us (see below) if you would like to know whether any such agreements are in place or, if so, to see a copy.

Retention and deletion of your information

Alnitak intends to keep your personal information accurate and up-to-date. We will delete the information that we hold about you when we no longer need it. We will retain your information for no longer than 2 years after our most recent communication with you, after which it will be deleted or anonymised, unless we have a legal obligation to retain it for a longer period. Contact us for more information.

Your rights

You may have a right of access to the personal information that we hold about you, and to some related information, under data protection law.

  • You can also require any inaccurate personal information to be corrected or deleted.

  • You can object to our use of your personal information for direct marketing purposes at any time and you may have the right to object to our processing of some or all of your personal information (and require them to be deleted) in some other circumstances.

  • In some circumstances, you may also have a “data portability” right to require us to transfer your personal data to you or to a new service provider (e.g. if you wish your data to be transferred from GPI to another Alnitak Project organisation).

If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact us as set out below. We are obliged to request proof of identity before access to your personal information is given.
