Homeopathy Action Trust works to protect your security online as vigorously as possible. We have developed the following policy to help you understand how your personal information will be treated as you engage with us both on and off-line. Our policy reflects our duties under the Data Protection Act to use information fairly, keep it secure, make sure it is accurate, and keep it up to date.
This policy applies to all the pages hosted on this site. It does not apply to pages hosted by other organisations to which we may link and whose privacy policies may differ from ours. This policy may change from time to time so please check back periodically.
If you have any questions relating to this policy, please contact us here.
If you are not satisfied with our response to your concern: you may wish to contact the Information Commissioner’s Office.
1. What information do we collect?
We collect only information which you give to us via email, the various forms on the website, or information voluntarily given to us via telephone or postal mail. Some information is gathered when you join, make a donation, complete a cyber action or register on this site. During these processes, the only information required is your name, address, phone, email (and payment method for joining or donating); although we may request other information such as your interest in homeopathy in order to offer you a more personalized service.
You can access our web site without disclosing your personal data but, if you set your web browser to disable cookies altogether, you may not be able to log-in and access the full functionality of the site. For instance, you need to be registered and logged-in to join Homeopathy Action Trust by paying a subscription.
2. How your information is used
Homeopathy Action Trust only uses the information you give us to send you communications that may be of interest to you (either electronically or otherwise). We also use the information to help us understand more about how supporters use our site and make improvements.
3. Does Homeopathy Action Trust share my information?
When you are on our website and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with Homeopathy Action Trust alone unless stated otherwise. We will not share your information with third parties unless we have your permission, or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.
4. How secure is the information I give you?
Homeopathy Action Trust uses industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information. We make every effort to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. In addition, we always use a secure connection when collecting personal financial information from you. However, please be aware no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure.
We also do everything in our power to protect your information off-line, and only authorised personnel can view your data.

At your request we will give you all details of personal information held by Homeopathy Action Trust, once identity has been satisfied. Incorrect information will be deleted or amended promptly. We will give you confirmation of corrections and deletions.

6. How do I opt out of receiving communications from Homeopathy Action Trust?
We will only send you unsolicited communications if you have joined Homeopathy Action Trust or registered on this site. We do not send out random, untargeted emails (spam).
If you do not wish to receive communications from us, please send an email asking that your contact information be eliminated from our databases.
