Who we are

We are the Jane Goodall Institute Global, a UK registered charity (1153284). Our registered office is at BWB Secretarial Limited, 10 Queen Street Place, London, EC4R 1BE.

We are the controller of the personal data we collect about you. If you don’t want to hear from us now or in the future, please inform us in writing to the Jane Goodall Institute Global at our registered office or by emailing mail@janegoodall.global

The ways we collect personal data

We may collect your personal data directly from you, such as when you fill in forms on our website, donate money, correspond with us, or communicate with us by phone or email.

We may also collect your personal data indirectly, including in the following ways:

  1. When you use our website

Our website currently uses cookies to track your activity. Please see our Cookie Policy for further information.

Our website may include campaign actions from time to time which will direct you to campaigns organised by other entities on other websites. This Privacy Policy does not apply to those websites, and we do not take responsibility for the nature, content or privacy policies of those websites. If you choose to visit those websites, please check the legal and privacy statements posted on each website or mobile application you access to understand their privacy practices.

  1. When you support us via a third party

In some cases, your information may be shared with us by another organisation, for example fundraising sites like PayPal or Just Giving. These independent third parties should only do so when you have indicated that you wish to support the Jane Goodall Institute Global [and have indicated you are willing for that third party to share your data].

  1. When you have given permission to another organisation to share your information

Your information may be shared with us by another company or organisation if you have indicated you are willing for that company or other organisation to share your data with third parties. This could be when you buy a product, register for an online competition, complete a survey, or sign up with a comparison site.

  1. When you have given permission using social media

Depending on your settings or the privacy policies for social media and messaging services like Facebook, WhatsApp or Twitter, you might give us permission to access information from those accounts or services.

If you provide us with personal data about someone else, please make sure that person is aware that you have provided us with their personal data and are happy for you to share their personal data with us. Please ask them to read this Privacy Policy to learn more about how we use personal data.

Children’s personal data

We do not knowingly collect personal data relating to children. We request that children below the age of 18 do not provide personal data to us. If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child under 18 who you believe has provided personal data to us, please contact us to have the information deleted.

 

The rootsandshoots.global has a separate Privacy Policy which governs specific activities in relation to children’s personal data.

How we use your personal data

We must have a legal basis for processing your personal data. We consider that we have a legal basis where:

  • Consent: You have given us consent to do so for the specific purposes which we have told you about. For example, to provide you with services you have requested like billing you or contacting you about donations, or to provide you with information that may be of interest to you if you have agreed to receive it. You are able to remove such consent at any time by contacting mail@janegoodall.global;
  • Performance of contract: It is necessary for a contract we have with you (for example like providing you with services you have requested), or because you have asked us to take specific steps before entering into a contract;
  • Legal obligation: It is necessary to comply with legal and regulatory obligations; and
  • Legitimate interests: It is for our legitimate interests, where such interests are not outweighed by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms which require protection of personal data.

How long we keep your personal data

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.

We will retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for (as set out in the ‘How we use your personal data’ section above), and a reasonable period afterwards in order to deal with any queries or maintain your communications preferences (as applicable). We will then dispose your information in accordance with the requirements of applicable data protection laws.

Any third parties that we engage will keep your data stored on their systems for as long as is necessary to provide the relevant services to you or us. If we end our relationship with any third-party providers, we will make sure that they securely delete or return your personal data to us in accordance with the requirements of applicable data protection laws.

International transfers of data

Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the UK, we ensure at least one of the following UK GDPR-approved transfer mechanisms is relied on:

  • the transfer is to a jurisdiction that has been designated as “adequate” (i.e. providing an equivalent level of data protection as that in the UK) by the UK Secretary of State;
  • where we have entered into pre-approved contractual clauses for international transfers out of the UK (approved by the UK Information Commissioner’s Office) with the data recipient outside the UK; or
  • where UK data protection law other side permits us to transfer your personal data outside the UK (e.g. where we have obtained your explicit consent, or where the transfer is necessary for us to perform a contract with you).

Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the UK

Websites that we do not own or control

From time to time we may provide links to websites or mobile applications that are not owned or controlled by us. This Privacy Policy does not apply to those websites, and we do not take responsibility for the nature, content or privacy policies of those websites. If you choose to visit those websites, please check the legal and privacy statements posted on each website or mobile application you access to understand their privacy practices.

We may use social media sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. If you use these services, you should review their privacy policies for more information on how they deal with your personal data.

Your rights

Under data protection law, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal data. There are circumstances in which your rights may not apply. You may have the right to request that we:

  • Provide you with a copy of the information we hold about you;
  • Update any of your personal data if it is inaccurate, incomplete or out of date;
  • Delete the personal data we hold about you – if we are providing services to you and you ask us to delete personal data we hold about you then we may be unable to continue providing those services;
  • Restrict the way in which we process your personal data in certain circumstances;
  • Stop processing your data; and / or
  • Transfer your personal data to you or a third party.

You are not required to pay any charge for exercising your rights. However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

For more information on your rights and how to use them, or if you would like to make any of the requests set out above, please contact us using the details provided below. We will respond to all such requests within the time period required by law, which is generally one month.
