• to provide information, support and services to you;

Transferring data outside of the European Economic Area (EEA)

We are required to tell you if we transfer data outside of the EEA. The data we collect and process is not transferred outside of the EEA.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, CCC collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. CCC’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how CCC’s visitors use its website.

From time to time, CCC may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Links to External Sites

CCC’s website may contain links to external sites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party’s site. We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy and terms and conditions of every site you visit.

We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites, products or services.

Legal basis for using your data

We generally rely on your consent to use your personal data in relation to monitoring website usage, or providing customer care, information or support should you choose to contact us directly through our website.

We also process your data because it is in our legitimate interests that we do so, namely:

• promoting our activities;
• sending information to you by e-mail about our services and/or activities;
• protecting CCC, our volunteers, funders, partners and clients/customers/service users by taking
appropriate legal action against third parties who have committed criminal acts;
• fulfilling our duties to our customers/clients/service users.

Your legal rights

You have the following rights:

• the right to ask what personal data we hold about you;
• the right to ask us to update and correct or delete any out-of-date or incorrect personal data that we hold about you;
