Privacy policy

I’m an honest fellow…

I won’t share your data with others. Your email address will be used only for communications about this campaign.

I won’t clog your inbox.  Just one or two emails a month to keep in touch and let you know how the biggest bank job is progressing.

I won’t publicly display your name or any other personal information  without your permission.

Here is some more information:

What personally identifiable information does The Robin Hood Tax collect from me?

Like many websites, we use cookies in order to provide you with a more personalised web service.

A cookie is a text-only string of information that we pass to your computer’s hard disk through your web-browser so that the website can remember who you are.  Cookies cannot be used by themselves to identify you.

A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come (in this case, robinhoodtax.org.uk), the “lifetime” of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number.

For more information about cookies, please see www.allaboutcookies.org.

We use two types of cookies on our website:

  • per session cookies, which are temporary cookies that remain in the cookies file of your browser until you leave the site;
  • and persistent cookies, which remain in the cookies file of your browser for longer (although how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie) . These cookies are used to store state information between visits to a site.

Google gathers non-personal information regarding the visitors to our website on our behalf using cookies embedded on our website.  This is used by Google Analytics to provide us with information about the usage of this website.

If you do not wish to receive cookies you can easily modify your web browser to refuse cookies, or to notify you when you receive a new cookie. However, you may not be able to use all the interactive features of our site if cookies are disabled, and so in order to enjoy this site to the full, we recommend that you leave them switched on.

How does the Robin Hood Tax use my information?

We use the information we collect about you to help us with understanding more about how our site is used and to be able to send you communications that may be of interest to you, either electronically or otherwise.

Who is collecting your information?

When you are on this website and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with the Robin Hood Tax.  We are a coalition of many organisations but your data will not be shared with individual organisations nor stored on their systems unless otherwise stated.

With whom do we share your information?

We will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information, except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.  We may publish some information publicly but will always inform you in advance that this will happen.

What are my choices regarding, collection, use and distribution of my information?

If you indicated that you are interested in receiving regular information about this campaign we will send you communications regarding our work and activities, either electronically or otherwise.

We do not sell, rent or share user information with anyone. We may on occasion work with 3rd parties to contact our supporters about the Robin Hood Tax, however the 3rd party would be bound by a confidentiality agreement which would prevent them from using this information for any other purpose.

How does Robin Hood Tax protect my personal identifiable information?

We take all reasonable steps to protect the individual identifying information that you provide to us.

What about children’s privacy?

The safety of children is very important to us. Children should always ask a parent for permission before sending personal information to anyone online.

What security precautions are in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of my information?

When you give us personal information that information may be stored and processed outside of the UK and we take steps to ensure that your information is treated securely.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Robin Hood Tax cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your data, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
