2. What information do we collect?

Financial information
Anti-Slavery International takes the security of your personal information very seriously. Consequently we use 128 bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption for all your transactions. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. So while we strive to protect such information, we cannot absolutely ensure or warrant the security of information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk.

Personal information
Personal information is anything that enables us to identify you as an individual, for example, your name and email address. When you supply information to us, we are legally obliged by the Data Protection Act 1998 to ensure that the information you have provided is only used for the purpose for which it was requested, and to ensure that the data is kept securely.

In addition, we may send you direct mail that we feel may be of interest to you. Anti-Slavery International will not sell or rent supporter information to anyone. From time to time, we agree with other like minded organisations to write to some of each other's supporters, for the mutual benefit of both. If you would rather not be included in any such exchange please contact us

5. Will we disclose the information we collect to outside parties?

Anti-Slavery International may need to make your personal information available to other companies for services to be provided to you, for example, when we contract out some of our services or functions. However, when we do this, we will not authorise such third parties to use your personal information in any other way and will require them to protect your personal information to the same degree that we do.

We may also need to disclose your information if required to do so by law.

6. Do we use Cookies?

A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer browser from a website's computer and is stored on your hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Many sites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows.

Cookies record information about your online preferences and allow us to tailor the websites to your interests. Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all of our website's features. Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.

During the course of any visit to, the pages you see, along with a cookie, are downloaded to your device. Many websites do this, because cookies enable website publishers to do useful things like find out whether the computer (and probably its user) has visited the website before. This is done on a repeat visit by checking to see, and finding, the cookie left there on the last visit. You can turn your cookies off by setting them in your browser's options.

7. Can I opt out of further communications?

If you do not wish to receive further communications of a particular type or no longer wish Anti-Slavery International to contact you at all please tell us. We will always respect your privacy and any personal communication between you and ourselves.

8. Can I have access to my information?

You may request a copy of any personal information that Anti-Slavery International has about you (for which we may charge a small administration fee) by contacting us at the address above.

Should your personal details change, please help us to keep your information up to date by contacting us at the address given above.

Notification of change of Privacy and Usage Policy
We reserve the right to amend this statement. Should this happen, we will post a notice of the change on the website, and you will be deemed to have accepted the changes.

If you have any further questions, or if you would like to ensure the accuracy of any of the information you may have volunteered, please contact us on 020 7501 8942 or email:
