Who we are
The Rivers Trust takes the privacy of the CaBA website very seriously and is committed to protecting your privacy online. All reasonable endeavours have been used to make sure that the content and accuracy of this website is consistent with normally accepted standards and practices.
This statement applies to the privacy and data protection practices which apply to The Rivers Trust website, operated by The Rivers Trust (registered charity no. 1107144).
We aim to safeguard our users’ privacy whilst provide a personalised and valuable service. Collecting personal information is necessary if we are to satisfy the expectations and requirements of our users, e.g. by communicating with them and providing an interactive service.
Transmitting information over the internet is generally not completely secure, and we can’t always guarantee the security of your data. Where possible, we have procedures and security features in place to try and keep your data secure once we receive it, but any data you transmit is at your own risk.

” Prevent or detect fraud or abuses of our websites and enable third parties to carry out technical, logistical or other functions on our behalf;

Occasionally, we may use other companies to provide services on our behalf, including sending postal mail, e-mails and analysing data. We will only provide those companies with the information they need to deliver the service and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose. We require all such companies to treat your personal information as fully confidential and to fully comply with all applicable UK Data Protection and consumer legislation.
We may disclose aggregate statistics about our site visitors to describe our services to prospective partners, advertisers and other reputable third parties and for other lawful purposes, but these statistics will include no personally identifying information.
