What personal data we collect and why we collect them


We don’t currently allow comments on this site – so we don’t need to worry about this.

Contact forms

If you subscribe to our newsletter than we will keep your name and email address. We will only use this information to send you the Wild Justice newsletter (and only if you have subscribed to it). We will not sell or give your details to anyone else. If you unsubscribe from the newsletter we will delete your details promptly – and in any case before the next newsletter is mailed.


If you send us a cheque by post (thank you!) we will keep whatever contact details you give us so that we can thank you and in case the cheque does not clear. We will keep a copy of our ‘thank you’ email to you for our records. We will not add your name or address (either postal or email) to any list of donors.

If you donate to us by bank transfer (thank you!) we will see only the normal information that you have provided on our bank statement. We will not necessarily know your name in any detail and we won’t have your contact details.

If you donate to us by PayPal (currently the commonest method, thank you!) we will have a record of your name, your email address and the amount you donated. This is part of the PayPal process and is completely standard. We will not use this information to target donors in any way with specific communications eg if you donate you will not be pestered for more donations. In the vast majority of cases we won’t even glance at the information stored through PayPal. We will communicate with our supporters through our newsletter and donors and non-donors will be treated exactly alike, and we will communicate with anyone who wants to follow us on social media (currently Twitter, Facebook and a very rudimentary Instagram account).


We use cookies for a variety of reasons detailed below. Unfortunately in most cases there are no industry standard options for disabling cookies without completely disabling the functionality and features they add to this site. It is recommended that you leave on all cookies if you are not sure whether you need them or not in case they are used to provide a service that you use.

When you submit data through a form such as those found on the About, Projects and Contact pages of our website cookies may be set to remember your user details for future correspondence.

We use social media buttons and/or plugins on this site that allow you to connect with your social network in various ways. For these to work the social media sites (currently only Twitter, but we plan to add Instagram and Facebook eventually) will set cookies through our site which may be used to enhance your profile on their site or contribute to the data they hold for various purposes outlined in their respective privacy policies.

More Information

Hopefully that has clarified things for you and as was previously mentioned if there is something that you aren’t sure whether you need or not it’s usually safer to leave cookies enabled in case it does interact with one of the features you use on our site. However if you are still looking for more information then you can contact us by letter at Wild Justice, 9 Lawson Street, Raunds, Wellingborough, Northants NN9 6NG or by email…


Embedded content from other websites

A few articles on this site include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has 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.


We don’t currently use Google Analytics on this site so neither of us need worry about that.

Who we share your data with


How long we retain your data

If you subscribe to the newsletter we keep your name and email address so that we can send the newsletter to you. If you unsubscribe then we will delete your details promptly.

If you donate to us through PayPal then we will maintain a list of donors’ names, email addresses and amounts donated indefinitely for our records.

How we protect your data

Your data are stored securely using widely available and trusted software (Aweber). Only people who need access to your data can see them – that means two of the three directors of Wild Justice and two individuals who help us out. Occasionally we may need to give access to the internal workings of this website to website developers who are maintaining or enhancing its functionality – they would be under instruction from us not to copy or alter any personal data. They would have little need even to look at any personal data and passwords to access the site would be reset after they had finished their work.

What rights you have over your data

You can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
