Privacy and Data Protection
Brighton Permaculture Trust Privacy Notice
Brighton Permaculture Trust is committed to protecting the privacy of people visiting our website, brightonpermaculture.org.uk and getting involved with Brighton Permaculture Trust, whether as supporters, volunteers or attending our courses and events. We never sell, pass on or exchange the data that is provided to us and only collect such data for the limited reasons set out below.
When somebody visits our website, we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard information such as the number of visitors to various parts of our site. This information does not identify anybody and does not allow Google to identify any such visitors. This information helps us understand how people use our website.
If you sign up as a member, to our volunteer mailing list and/or our newsletter, we only ask for your contact information in order to keep you informed of our Annual General Meetings/news and/or volunteer opportunities. You can unsubscribe at any time via the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email communication we send, or by contacting us. If you sign up to attend a volunteer session, a course or an event we will ask you for some further personal information that we need for the smooth running of the event and for health and safety reasons.
We collect additional information (which you can choose not to disclose) to help us understand what demographic we reach and how effective our communication is to different groups.
Brighton Permaculture Trust does not hold your date of birth or bank account/card details for security reasons. Financial transactions are carried out with banks and institutions that have their own security.
We do not share your information with any other parties. General, anonymised data is occasionally requested by organisations that help fund our work but no personal data is shared.
The information we hold about you is kept securely in our database, which can only be accessed by a small core team of people.
You are entitled to view, amend or delete the personal information that we hold. Please email your request to our administrator who can be contacted via our website: https://brightonpermaculture.org.uk/contact or by post at The Fruit Factory, Stanmer Village, Stanmer, Brighton BN1 9PZ.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site 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.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Embedded content from other websites

Who we share your data with
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.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, 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.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
