1. What personally identifiable information does CARE International UK collect about you?

We may collect and process the following information about you:

  • information you provide when filling in forms on the website such as your name, email address and address
  • records of correspondence with you
  • details of any transactions you carry out through our site such as donations to our work

Like many other websites CARE International UK uses cookies and anonymous identifiers in order to provide you with a better, more personal web experience. A cookie is a file which is stored on the hard drive of your computer and which enables the website to recognise you. Cookies cannot in themselves be used to identify you. An anonymous identifier is a random string of characters that is used for the same purposes as a cookie on platforms, including certain mobile devices, where cookie technology is not available.

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, should you choose to refuse cookies, you may be unable to access certain parts of the website such as interactive features.

We use Google Analytics to track non-identifying, anonymous website usage statistics, such as pages visited and referring websites, for the purposes of improving our websites; Google Advertiser Features to collect non-identifying, anonymous information for interest-based online advertising; and Google Demographic and Interest Reports to collect non-identifying, anonymous demographic data (such as age, gender and interest group) for reporting on general website visitor trends. We also use KISSmetrics to collect non-identifying, anonymised data for the purpose of measuring website repeat visitors and website effectiveness.

For more information on Google Analytics please see For more information on KISSmetrics please see 

We will never pass any information to Google:

  • that Google could use or recognise as personally-identifiable information; or
  • that permanently identifies a particular device (such as a mobile phone's unique device identifier if such an identifier cannot be reset).

For more information about cookies and for instructions on how to stop cookies being installed on your computer, please see

To opt out of tracking by Google Analytics, we recommend installing on your browser.

3. Does CARE share your information?

Except with your consent, we will only share your personally identifiable information as set out in this privacy policy.

Certain pages on the website indicate that information you submit will not remain with CARE alone. Information submitted on the donation pages, for example, and as stated on that page, will be processed by our partner company that is providing the secure transactions.

We may disclose your information to third parties in order to comply with any legal obligations, or to protect the property and other rights of CARE including disclosing information for the purposes of protection against fraudulent activities.

When we collect data from you we take reasonably necessary steps to ensure that it is stored securely on our systems and treated in accordance with this privacy policy.

Any payment transactions will be via WorldPay, Stripe and/or PayPal. We do not store credit card details nor do we share customer details with any third parties.

The transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any data transmitted to our site and any transmission is at your own risk.

5. What are your rights?

You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will usually inform you before collection of data if we intend to use it for such purposes or if we intend to disclose it for such purposes to third parties acting on our behalf such as our service providers, associated organisations and agents for administration and fundraising purposes.

6. Can you update, correct, or delete your personally identifiable information?

CARE maintains high standards of accuracy in keeping your identifying information up to date. If you change email address or know that the information we hold about you is inaccurate or out of date, please contact us.

Pursuant to the Act, you have the right to make a written request to access the information held about you. We reserve the right to impose a small administration charge for fulfilling any request for details on the information we hold about you.
