Our privacy policy

HACT is committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of people we partner with, as well as visitors to our web site. We’re not in the business of selling, renting or trading email lists with other companies and businesses for marketing purposes. 

This privacy policy provides detailed information about when and why we collect your personal information, how we use it, and how we keep it secure.

Our web sites

This privacy policy refers to the following web sites:








Our web sites do not collect any personal information about you, apart from any information that you provide to us voluntarily by completing any online forms on these web sites. 

We do not collect any information via cookies* that can be used to uniquely identify individuals. 

When you visit our web sites, we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to discover how many people are visiting our site, which parts of the site they are visiting and which publications have been downloaded, as well as other information that helps us to improve users’ web site experience. This information is processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our web site. 

Mailing lists

As part of the registration process for our email newsletter, we collect information about you. This includes you email address, first name, second name, job title and organisation. Please tell us if you are giving HACT your home or non-work details, so that we can keep this data separate from your work-related information. 

We use this information to send you about our work that we think might be of interest to you, or relevant to your work. We will also use that information to contact you and check that the details are correct, so that we can keep our records up-to-date and remove you if your details have changed. 

We do not rent or trade our email lists with other organisations and businesses. 

We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard techniques and technologies to help us monitor and improve our communications. For more information about how MailChimp protects your data, please see their privacy policy

You can unsubscribe from our email communications at any time by clicking on the link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing our data protection officer, Andrew van Doorn.

Access to your personal information

You are entitled to view, amend or delete the personal information that we hold. To do so, please email your request to Andrew van Doorn or phone them on 020 7250 8500.

Changes to this privacy notice

We will review this privacy notice annually.
