Information we collect from you is used to improve our site, provide you a better experience, and respond to your questions and requests. The Privacy Policy covers all activities of the World Parkinson Coalition

Information Collection

We collect two types of information on our websites:
This information is used to determine the number of visitors to our site, length of stay and sources of traffic. We collect aggregate data — or totals of those visiting from a domain — not information identifying individual users. We use this information to help improve our site and our service to you. In addition, the type of device you’re using to access our websites and the settings on that device may provide us with information about your device, including what type of device it is and what operating system you’re using. Your device manufacturer or operating system provider will have more details about what information your device makes available to us.

Personal information provided by you: We collect email addresses and other personal information only when you provide it to us. If you fill out a form or survey or request information, we collect your name, address, city, state, zip code, telephone number and email address. We do not store credit/debit card information from donations or purchases at our online store after the transaction has been completed.

Use Of Personal Information

We use your personal data to provide you with the services, products, or information you requested and to keep a record of your relationship with us. The information provided by you and web server traffic information enables us to understand how we can improve our services and information. The WPC will never sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others other than those outlined in this section.

We will never give sponsors your mailing details, but if sponsors have something they want to share with you, we (the WPC) may email or mail it to you on their behalf.

What Personal Data We Collect and How We Use It

Personal information is any information that can be used to identify you. For example, it can include information such as your name, date of birth, email address, postal address, telephone number.

Data protection law recognizes that certain categories of personal information are more sensitive. This is known as special categories and covers the processing of personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, and the processing of genetic data, biometric data for the purpose of uniquely identifying a natural person, data concerning health or data concerning a natural person’s sex life or sexual orientation shall be prohibited. We would only collect sensitive personal information where there is a clear need to do so such as to ascertain what services are relevant to you or to cater other support to you. Before collecting any sensitive personal information from you we will always make it clear to you what sensitive personal data we are collecting and why. We will also ask for your consent to store and retain this data.

How We Keep Your Data Safe and Who Has Access To It

We ensure that there are appropriate technical controls in place to protect your personal details. Our network is protected and routinely monitored.

Your information is only accessible by appropriately trained staff, volunteers and contractors. We sometimes use external companies to collect or process personal data on our behalf. We do comprehensive checks on these companies before we work with them, and put a contract in place that sets out our expectations and requirements; especially regarding how they manage the personal data they have collected or have access to.

We may need to disclose your details if required to the police, regulatory bodies or legal advisors.
