PRIVACY POLICY

“Arguing that you don’t care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don’t care about free speech because you have nothing to say.”

– Edward Snowden

WHO WE ARE

We are the UK Freedom Project.

Our website address is: https://ukfreedomproject.org

You can contact us by emailing mail@ukfreedomproject.org or by using the form on our Contact page.

POLICY SUMMARY

We like to keep things simple.

Your data is your data.

We don’t want it.

We don’t ask for it (unless you choose to use our contact form) and we don’t sneakily collect it from you while you aren’t looking.

We don’t track where you are, where on the internet you’ve come from or where you go after you leave our site.

We don’t ask you to subscribe to our blog or sign up to a mailing list (so you don’t have to give us your email etc).

We don’t ask for comments on our blog posts (for the same reason).

We don’t ask you to share our posts or pages (again for the same reason) – but we hope that you will.

EXCEPTIONS

Embedded Content From Other Websites

Every now and then, we may include embedded content (e.g. a YouTube video) in a blog article.

Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if you have visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Wherever possible, we will host our own copy of a video, but sometimes it just isn’t possible due to copyright or the size of the file involved. If we use embedded content, we will put a notice immediately before it so that you can choose whether you wish to interact with it.

Taking Action on Campaigns

We want you to get involved in our campaigns and take important actions that help exercise and protect your freedoms.  But in order to do that, you may need to visit third party websites.

Different websites may collect different data from you. They may track you in different ways. It is important that before you interact with a website that we have directed you to in order to take action, that you have a look through their privacy policy and ensure you are happy to provide them with the data needed.

We don’t track which campaigns you take action on and we don’t receive any information from the third party websites about whether or how you interacted with them.

Social Media

As we said, we don’t insist that you share any content from our website. But if you do want to share something, all you need to do is copy the URL (the website address) for the page or post then paste it into whichever social media platform or email client you use. We won’t know that you’ve done it – but bear in mind that the social media platform will.

We have a presence on several social media platforms. It is the main way that we disseminate important information to as wide an audience as possible. If you choose to follow us and/or interact with us on any of the social media platforms, be aware that the platform will collect and keep data about that interaction. But we don’t – other than what the platform concerned tells us in our user account e.g. who has retweeted a tweet. We don’t use any fancy marketing and remarketing tools to analyse how you interact with us or stalk you around the internet.

WHO WE SHARE YOUR DATA WITH

No-one – absolutely no-one at all.

HOW LONG WE RETAIN YOUR DATA

We can’t keep what we don’t have. So unless you have used our contact form, we don’t have anything to retain. If you have used our contact form, we will keep the information from that contact and any subsequent follow up conversation for as long as is appropriate (e.g. until we have answered your query).

WHAT RIGHTS YOU HAVE OVER YOUR DATA

You have all rights over your data and we have none. If you have used our contact form and wish us to delete the information provided in that conversation, just email mail@ukfreedomproject.org and we will delete it.
