Organisational Aims

ActForEaling is a community organisation which aims to promote and support activities in the borough of Ealing to restore nature, address climate change, and encourage sustainable practices. We collect and hold information in connection with these aims, as described in more detail below.

Generally, we aim to collect only the minimum of personal data that is necessary, and only store such data for as long as it is needed to meet our aims.

The type of personal information we collect

We currently collect and process the following information:

  • Name and contact details
  • Any other information that you have voluntarily exchanged with us, when contacting us by email, or via the telephone.
  • Photographs of events, competition entrants, partner activities (used with consent).

How we obtain your personal information and why we have it

Most of the personal data we process is provided to us directly by you for, one or more of the following reasons:

Our Mailing List 

To operate our mailing list we store name and email address information. We use “categories” to allow us to email different sections of our mailing list separately. We store no other information other than the first name, last name and email address of each subscriber.

Our mailing list is hosted by Mailchimp, who can be contacted at the Rocket Science Group, LLP 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA, and who store the name and email address information of subscribers on their servers.

Subscribers can add themselves to our mailing list either via the automatic sign-up form provided by Mailchimp, which is available on our website, or by emailing us directly to ask that they be added.

At events, we may collect email addresses via a paper “sign-up” sheet. This sheet is completed by subscribers themselves and states the terms of use. E-mail addresses from sign-up sheets are entered onto the Mailchimp mailing list by a member of our steering group. All paper records are destroyed once data is entered onto the Mailchimp mailing list.

Subscribers to our Mailchimp mailing list can request to be unsubscribed at any time. An unsubscribe option is provided as part of every communication issued via the Mailchimp mailing list. Direct email requests to ActForEaling to be removed from our mailing list will be actioned as soon as possible, and within 2 weeks at the latest.

Mailing List names and email addresses will only be used by ActForEaling to inform subscribers of ActForEaling news, events and related relevant information. The information will never be passed to any other third party or organisation.

Our List of Partners

We maintain a contact list of names and associated contact information for partners and potential partners in Ealing who are engaged in activities that restore nature, address climate change, and encourage sustainable practices. This information is usually in the public domain already, or has been provided to us by the partner with the express purpose of allowing us to contact them.
