We use the information we collect about you to help us understand more about how our site is used and to be able to send you communications about IHF that may be of interest to you, either electronically or otherwise. The "personal information" is information that enables us to identify you, such as your email address, name, title and address.
IHF makes no information available to any third parties and IHF does not sell or rent user information to anyone.
Please read the following policy to understand how your personal information will be treated. This policy may change from time to time so please check back periodically.

- How does IHF use my information?
IHF uses the information we collect to send you communications that you have requested as well as those which may be of interest to you, either electronically or otherwise.
- Who is collecting your information?
When you are in the IHF website and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with IHF alone unless stated otherwise. For example, when you are using our secure online donation pages, you are going through to a partner company, Virgin Money Giving. Where information is not collected directly from the IHF website, but is entered via a third party, the information is not used in any way or for any purpose other than to process the transaction or to pass the information on to IHF unless otherwise stated.
- With whom does IHF share your information?
As a general rule, IHF will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it. Online donations are made through a partner company (Virgin Money Giving) and ticket sales via PayPal, and the information you give such as your credit card number and contact information is provided to them so that the transaction can take place. Where information is collected via a third party, this data is only used by IHF unless otherwise stated.
- Will IHF disclose my information to Third Parties?
The IHF does not sell, trade or rent your personal information to others. We subcontract some companies to perform functions on our behalf, which at present consists of sending postal mail only. Such companies will have access to personal information needed to perform these functions, but may not use it for any other purpose and are required to process the data in accordance with the UK's Data Protection legislation.

If you indicated that you are interested in receiving regular information about IHF's work, we will send you communications regarding IHF's activities electronically.

Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
