Privacy Policy

This privacy policy describes how we collect, use and store your personal information.

Volunteer Anything is committed to protecting your privacy and personal information. If you need further information about any aspect of this privacy policy, please email us at [  info@volunteeranything.com ].

Volunteer Anything is the data controller of your personal information.

1.    Collection of personal information and statistics

When you set up an account, we collect and store your name, address, date of birth, gender, email address, IP address and telephone number.

We collect some anonymous statistical information and data from our website, including information about how many people have signed up to use the website or who are actively using it, the number of “hits” that pages on the website receive and internet traffic to and from our website. We collect this information to help us to judge whether we are providing a useful and effective service.

2.  Uses of personal information

When you create your account, your name and location will be visible to all users of the website. If you wish, solely at your option and discretion, you can allow other information about you to be visible to other users of the website, in addition to your name and location. When you create an account, you will be able to mark which information you want other users to see, and which information you don’t want other users to see. Information that you don’t want other users to see will only be viewable on Volunteer Anything’s admin system.

You will be able to update your account if you change your mind about what information you want other users to be able to see.

We will use your personal information to provide our services, communicate marketing materials and offers to you (but only if you have not opted out to receive those) and to inform you about services and updates.

We do not sell your personal information to third parties for marketing purposes

3.  Your account

If your details change, you can keep them up to date by accessing your account and updating your details. If you have forgotten your password, we can enable you to reset it. Please send an email to [info@volunteeranything.com ] and we will send a link to your email account, which you should click on and follow the instructions to reset your password.

If you do not wish to receive marketing materials or offers, you can also opt out of this by accessing your account and ticking the ‘opt out of marketing’ box.
If you wish to have your account deleted, please email us on [           ].

4.  Security

We will not share your personal details with any third parties unless a crime has been committed and the police ask us to do so or to respond to legal requirements.
We have a working relationship with Codak, who help us with the hosting and operation of the website, which is contained on a secure server. If you require further details of this relationship, please ask us.

Codak’s servers are based in the United Kingdom.

Even with our security measures, no data sent over the internet is 100% secure and when you send information to this website over the internet you do so at your own risk. We take steps to protect your personal information against unauthorized access, use and disclosure, but give no 100% guarantee of security in this regard.

5.  Cookies

We do not use cookies to invade your privacy; we only use them to enhance your experience of the website and to speed up the volunteering process. Currently there are cookies to speed up the registration process and also cookies that enable us to analyse the user experience and how people are interacting with the website. You can disable these cookies but this may adversely affect your ability to use the website easily.


6. Updates to this privacy policy

We may amend this privacy policy at any time, with updates taking effect within 30 days of our new terms appearing online. However, we will never use your personal information for something that you have not agreed to. In this regard, we will always need to approach you for a further express consent where we want to do something with your personal information that you have not already agreed to in advance in this privacy policy.


7. Laws

Your use of this website and any dispute arising out of such use of the website is subject to the laws of England and Wales. The audience of this website is intended to be UK citizens. If you are based in Scotland or Northern Ireland, the laws of England and Wales will apply to our relationship.
