Who is collecting information?

When you provide personal information to the Saferworld website, you are sharing that information with Saferworld alone unless stated otherwise. For example, when you are using our secure online donation pages you are going through to Paypal. It is clear on the donation page when you are going through to the Paypal site.

Saferworld will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information, except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it. Information submitted to us is only available to employees managing this information for purposes of sending you emails based on your request for information.

How does Saferworld protect your personal information?

Saferworld is committed to taking reasonable steps to protect the personally identifiable information that you provide to us. We use security measures to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of data used by our system. The Data Protection Act 1998 seeks to safeguard individual’s rights related to the gathering, storing, processing and transferring of their personal data held by others. Saferworld understands and complies with its obligations under the Data Protection Act 1998 and in particular takes steps to ensure that adequate arrangements are made to ensure the security, confidentiality and accuracy of data.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Saferworld cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we use our best efforts to ensure its security on our systems.
