Sustainable Rural Development International Limited ("SRDI" or “We”) is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.
This policy sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you on this site or affiliated sites (Black Sea Sustainable Rural Tourism Program), or that you provide to us, will be processed by us. Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it. We keep certain basic information when you visit our website and recognize the importance of keeping that information secure and letting you know what we will do with it.
For the purpose of the General Data Protection Regulation (the Act), the data controller is SRDI of 5 St John’s Lane, Farringdon, London EC1M 4BH (registration number 08148076). This policy only applies to our site. If you leave our site via a link or otherwise, you will be subject to the policy of that website provider, including the Wix platform which this site uses. We have no control over that policy or the terms of the website and you should check their policy before continuing to access the site.
When using our site, you have the ability to link through to certain social media sites such as Facebook or LinkedIn. Depending on your settings, and the privacy policies of these social media and messaging services, we may receive or match your personal data with these sites to show SRDI content while these services are being used. To change your settings on these services, please refer to their privacy notices, which will tell you how to do this.
We will only contact you for marketing purposes (for example keep you up to date on our work based on your previous responses to our campaigns, or let you know of ways in which you can support that work) where we have your consent. We will generally treat any marketing consent you give us as lasting for 12 months. We never sell or share your information with entities outside SRDI for their marketing purposes.
Information we may collect from you

When you provide your information to us, we will only use the information for the purposes for which it is provided, for any compatible purposes and to fulfil our legal or regulatory obligations unless you have agreed for your data to be used for other purposes.
We will only retain the data you provide to us through our website for as long as required by applicable laws or as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected and in accordance with any consents provided. We will delete personal data at the end of this period unless we wish to use it for statistical purposes, in which case we will anonymise it, such that you could never be re-identified with it.

If you believe we are not respecting your rights, you are entitled to make a complaint to a relevant supervisory authority.
The legal basis on which we hold and use your data will vary depending on the activity involved. In some cases, we might hold the data because it is needed to fulfil a contract or meet our legal obligations (i.e. a donation), in others because it is in our legitimate interest to do so, and in others, because you have consented to this use. We note that the legal basis on which we process your data will influence your specific rights.
