Privacy Policy

On the Move is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.

This policy explains what personal information we collect, how we use it, and your rights in relation to this information.

Personal information

We only collect personal information that is relevant to On the Move’s activities as an organisation. This information might include:

  • Your name and contact details (email address, telephone number, postal address, etc).
  • Your place of work (organisation name, organisation address, etc).
  • Any other personal information you provide us.

Collection of information

Most information we collect is information you give us directly. For instance, when you sign-up for our newsletter it asks for an email address, name, organisation, location, and preferred language. This information helps us to improve the services and information we provide.

Members of On the Move’s network may give additional information when they apply for membership. We need to keep this information in order to operate our organisation and its events.

We may also receive similar information about you indirectly through third parties, such as co-organisers of On the Move events.

We maintain pages on Facebook and Twitter. When you interact with us on these social networks we may be able to view personal information about you. The information you share is determined by the privacy preferences you have selected in your Facebook or Twitter account.

When you visit this website we also collect limited information through Google Analytics.
