At MST Foundation we are committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our visitors to our web site and subscribers to our newsletter. Here you’ll find information on how we treat data that we collect from visitors to our website, or when someone subscribes to our newsletter.

Visitors to our Website

When someone visits https://mstfoundation.org.uk we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is processed in a way which does not identify individuals. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

If we do wish to collect personally identifiable information through our website, we will be up front and transparent about this. We will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it.

Donations

Donations to MST Foundation are facilitated and processed by Charities Aid Foundation. You can access their privacy policy here.

Newsletter Sign Up

As part of the registration process for our monthly e-newsletter, we collect personal information. We use that information for several reasons: to tell you about the things you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.

We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice (here).

You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing Muhammad Ali (MSTF Data Protection Officer) at ma@mstfoundation.org.uk.

Application forms submitted via the site are securely held in our DropBox account. You can see the DropBox privacy policy here.

Links to Other Web Sites

This privacy notice does not cover the links within this site linking to other websites. Those sites are not governed by this Privacy Notice, and if you have questions about how a site uses your information, you’ll need to check that site’s privacy statement.

Access to Your Personal Information

In accordance with GDPR rules, you are entitled to access the personal information that we hold about you. Unless you are a client, that will likely be limited to name, email and potentially a phone number. You may email your request to Muhammad Ali (the MSTF Data Protection Officer) at ma@mstfoundation.org.uk.
