We have a strict internal data policy, which means that only authorised and compliant parties have access to data, and this data will only be shared with essential third parties (such as vets, law enforcement officials etc) when express permission has been received, or as required to ensure the health and wellbeing of animals or our own volunteers.

How does our Privacy Policy affect you? Our Privacy Policy is in place to protect you when visiting us online or transacting business with ourselves. Modern day communication methods increasingly rely upon electronic communications and our Privacy Policy covers the use of these, as well as traditional methods of administration.

Social Media and our website are two of our key channels for the distribution of news, views and kind donations. We may publish your name (fully anonymised if you wish) upon receipt of a donation or when a colony sponsorship is agreed. Please let us know how you wish for your details to be published.
