Analytics

Who we share your data with

We maintain direct control over as many processes as we can. As necessary in connection with the above purposes, your personal data may be transferred to the Board of Trustees or our authorised third-party service providers and partners. We conscientiously select and review authorised third parties when possible and review their privacy and security policies. These authorised third parties may be engaged in, among other things, the processing of donations, technology support, outreach campaigns, or research projects carried out in connection with our mission. Limited members of Save & Nurture Child Care Foundation staff or the staff working for these third parties may also access and otherwise process your personal data in connection with their job responsibilities or contractual obligations. 

Some of these personnel and authorised third parties (for example payment processors) may transfer data outside the United Kingdom (“UK”) or European Union (“EU”). We take appropriate steps to ensure that data remains within jurisdictions with adequate protections for personal data and ensure that recipients of personal data from us are bound to duties of confidentiality, where relevant or appropriate. Where this is not possible, we rely on data minimisation, the selection of trusted companies with privacy policies and auditable processes which we have reviewed and seek to ensure that there are adequate safeguards in place for protecting transferred data, for example Standard Contractual Clauses. For more information on the safeguards for transfer in a particular operation please contact us. We may also be required to disclose or otherwise process your personal data in the context of a regulatory audit to which we may be subject from time to time.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize 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.

Additional information

How Do We Protect Personal Data?

Personal data shall be subject to additional safeguards to ensure this data is processed securely. For example, we work hard to ensure data is encrypted when in transit and storage, and access to this data will be strictly limited to a minimum number of individuals and subject to confidentiality commitments.  

We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Policy. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to any of our websites; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. When possible, encryption is used, both in transit and storage. Access controls within the organisation limit who may access information.

How Long Do We Keep Personal Data?

We ensure that personal data is retained only for as long as necessary in accordance with the above purposes and applicable laws. We may be required to retain your personal data for a number of years in order to satisfy legal or contractual obligations, or in order to establish, exercise or defend legal claims. When your personal data is no longer necessary for these purposes, the personal data will be deleted. 

Financial and Supporter Information

We collect and process data provided by prospective and current donors. This data may include contact details, biographical information, financial information, donation history, and employer details. We do not purchase such data, so we only collect data given to us by the individuals themselves. In order to assist us with the technical process of managing and recording our donations for audit purposes, this information may be processed through CiviCRM software that we control but is hosted by our internet service provider. This software allows us to see the email address of the donor, how much has been donated, when it was donated and whether it is a recurring payment. 

We have Paystack to administer on-line donations. Paystack allows you to close your customer account once you no longer require it. Your account information may stay active with Paystack for legal and audit purposes, in accordance with Paystack ‘s privacy policy available here.

To ensure your card information is kept safe and secure on Paystack servers, Paystack implement access control measures (physical and virtual), security protocols, policies and standards including the use of encryption and firewall technologies in compliance with the PCI DSS Requirements and Paystack implement periodical security updates to ensure that their security infrastructures are in compliance with reasonable industry standards.

Paystack may share your contact information with us as part of your purchase details for record purposes. Paystack will not share this information with other third parties except as a necessary part of providing their website and services. Paystack do not share your card information with us.

In accordance with Paystack privacy policies, we may have access to or be provided with data by these platforms for the purpose of managing our donations.

Our financial accounts are held with Zenith Bank. Any donations made to Save & Nurture Child Care Foundation in the form of a cheque will be processed by Zenith Bank in accordance with its privacy policy available here and under Niigeria law. We retain information about all donations in accordance with financial auditing requirements.

We will ask donors wishing to make a donation under the Gift Aid scheme to complete an online or hardcopy Gift Aid declaration form. We are required to store an auditable record of those donors — full name, home address and details of the donation — in order to process the Gift Aid donation. Please contact support@savingachild.org for further information on making a Gift Aid donation.

Third party cookies

We may also point from our websites to other internet services that do use cookies. Our payment processors, for example, will place cookies as well. This is also the case with multi-media services, and with the links that we post on our Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Volunteers’ and Applicants’ Information

Occasionally we receive employment information from prospective employees. This information may include the individual’s CV, biographical information, contact details, immigration status, photograph, and references. This information is shared with relevant staff internally until that individual becomes a candidate for employment. At that point we may share the CV with our trustees. We delete your application once it is no longer necessary for the recruitment exercise.

We also collect and process prospective and current volunteer data for recruitment and administration purposes. This data may include biographical information, contact details, immigration-related information, references, and payment details for reimbursement purposes. Again, we delete your application once it is no longer necessary for the recruitment exercise. 

We keep all accounting and administration information for auditing purposes, in accordance with standard practice and Nigeria law.

Research and Investigations

We collect and process data in relation to our research and investigations, for example when conducting research into potential or current subjects and participants of our research and investigation projects. This data may be provided to us by the individuals themselves, from publicly available sources, or from third parties.
