This is the privacy notice of The Entrepreneurial Refugee Network C.I.C. (‘TERN’, ‘we’, ‘our’ or ‘us’).
Our registered address is WeWork Growth Campus, Senna Building, Gorsuch Place, London, E2 8JF, United Kingdom.
If you have any questions about our Privacy Notice, or if you have privacy-related requests, please contact us by email to <email@example.com>.
This notice describes how we collect, store, transfer and use personal data. It tells you about your privacy rights and how the law protects you.
In the context of the law and this notice, ‘personal data’ is information that clearly identifies you as an individual or which could be used to identify you if combined with other information. Acting in any way on personal data is referred to as ‘processing’.
Except as set out below, we do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any information collected through our website.
The information we process about you includes information:
- you have directly provided to us
- as a result of monitoring how you use our website or our services
When you subscribe to our newsletter or become part of our supporter community we ask you to provide personal data that includes personal identifiers, such as your first and last names, and contact information, such as your email address.
By using our website and our services, we process:
- technical information about the hardware and the software you use to access our website and use our services, including your Internet Protocol (IP) address, your browser type and version and your device’s operating system
- usage information, including the frequency you use our services, the pages of our website that you visit, whether you receive messages from us and whether you reply to those messages
If you request that we send you our community newsletter or if you request information about becoming one of our entrepreneur service users or volunteer supporters, then you give us your consent to receive messages from us.
You may withdraw your consent at any time by telling us by emailing us to <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
We may aggregate anonymous information such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Anonymous information is that which does not identify you as an individual. Aggregated information may be derived from your personal data but is not considered as such in law because it does not reveal your identity.
For example, we may aggregate usage information to assess whether a feature of our website is useful.
However, if we combine or connect aggregated information with your personal data so that it can identify you in any way, we treat the combined information as personal data, and it will be used in accordance with this privacy notice.
Special personal data is data about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health and genetic and biometric data.
We do not collect any special personal data about you.
The law requires us to determine under which of six defined bases we process different categories of your personal data, and to notify you of the basis for each category.
If a basis on which we process your personal data is no longer relevant then we shall immediately stop processing your data.
If the basis changes then if required by law we shall notify you of the change and of any new basis under which we have determined that we can continue to process your information.
When you agree to our terms and conditions, a contract is formed between you and us. In order to carry out our obligations under that contract we must process the information you give us. Some of this information may be personal data.
We may use it in order to:
- verify your identity for security purposes when you use our services
- provide you with our services
- provide you with information about our services
We process this information on the basis there is a contract between us, or that you have requested we use the information before we enter into a legal contract.
We shall continue to process this information until the contract between us ends or is terminated by either party under the terms of the contract.
Through certain actions when otherwise there is no contractual relationship between us, such as when you browse our website, you provide your consent to us to process information that may be personal data.
Wherever possible, we aim to obtain your explicit consent to process this information.
If you have given us explicit permission to do so, we may from time to time pass your name and contact information to the businesses whose products and services our website promotes and to other selected associates whom we consider may provide services or products you would find useful.
We continue to process your information on this basis until you withdraw your consent or it can be reasonably assumed that your consent no longer exists.
You may withdraw your consent at any time by emailing us. However, if you do so, you may not be able to use our website or our services further.
We aim to obtain and keep your consent to process your information. However, while we take your consent into account in decisions about whether or not to process your personal data, the withdrawal of your consent does not necessarily prevent us from continuing to process it. The law may allow us to continue to process your personal data, provided that there is another basis on which we may do so. For example, we may have a legal obligation to do so.
We may process information on the basis there is a legitimate interest, either to you or to us, of doing so.
Where we process your information on this basis, we do after having given careful consideration to:
- whether the same objective could be achieved through other means
- whether processing (or not processing) might cause you harm
- whether you would expect us to process your data, and whether you would, in the round, consider it reasonable to do so
For example, we may process your data on this basis for the purposes of:
- improving our services
- record-keeping for the proper and necessary administration of our organisation
- responding to unsolicited communication from you to which we believe you would expect a response
- preventing fraudulent use of our services
- exercising our legal rights, including to detect and prevent fraud and to protect our intellectual property
- insuring against or obtaining professional advice that is required to manage organisational risk
- protecting your interests where we believe we have a duty to do so
Sometimes, we must process your information in order to comply with a statutory obligation.
For example, we may be required to give information to legal authorities if they so request or if they have the proper authorisation such as a search warrant or court order.
This may include your personal data.
