Privacy Statement

The Rise Foundation

25th May 2018

This website is owned by The Rise Foundation, Charity number CHY37312, The Carmelite Centre, Aungier Street, Dublin 2. Please contact Brian Allen at 017645131 for more information.

The Rise Foundation respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it. It provides this Privacy Policy to inform you of its Privacy Policy and practices and of the choices you can make about the way your information is collected online and how that information is used. We make this notice readily available on our home page and at the bottom of every web page on this site. 

What information we collect from you

There are two types of information we collect: information that allows us to identify specific individuals and information of a more generalized nature. 

Personal information

Whenever we ask for information that enables us to identify you it will be clear that we are doing so and in every case you will have a choice of how we use the information that is asked for. Information of this type will only be asked for on those parts of our web site that allows transactions to be performed, in contrast to those parts of our web site that are merely informational in their function. Information of this type will also be collected when you contact us directly by email for any reason or if you specifically request that we send you information.  Any information which you provide in this way is not made available to any third parties, and is used only in line with the purpose for which you provided it. 

Anonymised information 

This website uses cookies to help you in your interactions with the site. No personally identifiable data is collected. This type of information helps us to enhance the web site and improve its navigability. It also helps us to improve the quality of the online services and information you can access. In order to facilitate this, we use cookies to identify specific information about your visits to the site. 

Storing your personal data

All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted using SSL technology.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

Links to external websites

The Rise Foundation website may provide links to third-party websites for your convenience and information. If you access those links, you will leave the Rise Foundation website. The Rise Foundation does not control those sites or their privacy practices, which may differ from the Rise Foundation website. We do not endorse or make any representations about third-party websites. The personal data you choose to give to unrelated third parties is not covered by the Rise Foundation Privacy Policy. We encourage you to review the privacy policy of any organisation before submitting your personal information. 

Children’s Privacy

The Rise Foundation is committed to protecting the privacy needs of children and we encourage parents and guardians to take an active role in their children's online activities and interests.

Changes to this Policy

If there are updates to the terms of The Rise Foundation Online Privacy Policy, we will post those changes and update the revision date in this document, so you will always know what information we collect online, how we use it, and what choices you have.
