The Froglife Trust is committed to protecting the privacy of our customers, website visitors and App users. Our relationship with you is valuable and we understand the importance you place on the privacy and security of information that personally identifies you.
This policy sets out the data processing practices carried out through the use of the Internet and any other electronic communications networks by the The Froglife Trust.
The information we collect
Although you are not required to provide us with personal data in order to browse our website, we do collect personal data from visitors who purchase merchandise from the website, or use any on-line forms or services, or email us their details through our information service.
If you use our on-line facility for the Toads on Roads patrols we will collect the following data: First and Second Name, Email Address, Landline & Mobile numbers and your reason for helping or any questions you may have. This data will not be used for any other purposes other than providing you with information about your nearest toad patrol.
When we ask for your information, we will comply with law, including the Data Protection Act 1998.
Subscriptions and newsletters
Users of our website may register for e-mail newsletters and news updates. This service is entirely optional and you may unsubscribe at any time.
A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a web server to a web browser, which enables the server to collect information from the browser. The only personal information a cookie can obtain is the information that you supply. A cookie cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. However, cookies enhance our website performance by providing a secure way for us to verify your identity during your visit to our website and to personalise your experience on our website, making it more convenient for you to use.
Website usage data
With or without cookies, our website keeps track of usage data such as the source address of a page request (i.e. your IP address and domain name), the date and time of the page request, the referring website (if any) and other parameters in the URL (e.g. search criteria). We use this data to better understand the use of our website by visitors and to identify user preferences. This information is stored in log files and is used for aggregated and statistical reporting, but is not attributed to you as an individual.
WE recognise industry standards and employ security safeguards to protect information from unauthorised access and misuse. We use the most accurate and current information you provide in order to process your request. Furthermore, whenever you transmit sensitive information such as billing or credit card information to us through our website, we provide you access to our secure server that allows encryption across the Internet.
Any materials, information or other communication that you transmit or post to our website (other than your personal information) will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary, unless we are advised to the contrary. You are accordingly requested not to post confidential or proprietary information to our website.
Given that the internet is a global environment, using the Internet to collect and process personal data necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international basis. Therefore, by browsing this website and communicating electronically with us, you acknowledge and agree to our processing of personal data in this way.

If you do choose to submit this data it will only be used for the services you have requested or to respond to your enquiries. Under no circumstances will this data be supplied to any other party for any purpose.
