1. Your information

We do not collect any personal information when you visit our site.

If you sign up to our newsletter, your information is held by Save The Children. However, we will only contact you about Children United. We will never share your information with anyone else unless we have to for legal reasons.

We will never sell your data.

2. Children under 18 years of age

The Children United website has forms that you can fill in so we can start sending you our email newsletter.

We do not collect information about anyone under 18 years old. If you want to complete one of the forms, you must tick a checkbox to say that you are over 18 years old.

If we find out that we have information from a child under 18 years old, we will delete it as quickly as possible.

If you are under 18 years old and would like to get our newsletter, please ask a parent or carer to fill the form in using their details.

3. Cookies

We use Google Analytics to see how many people have visited the Children United website, including which pages they looked at. That helps us know what people are reading and make the website better.

Google Analytics puts a 'cookie' on your computer's hard drive. Our cookies do not collect your personal information. Most modern websites use cookies.

When you visit the Children United website for the first time, we show you a message to ask if we can put a cookie on your computer.

The 'help' area in most web browsers will let you choose how and when you get cookies. You can also stop getting any cookies from any website.

4. Mailchimp

We use Mailchimp to send our email newsletter. Mailchimp is based in the United States, where they store information on their secure servers.

We never put third-party tracking in the emails we send. Mailchimp does have its own analytics, which tells us how many people open a message or click the links inside. You can read Mailchimp's privacy policy on their website.

5. Changes to this policy

We may change our privacy policy in the future. You can always check this page to see if there is anything new. If we make a big change to the policy, we will make it clear on the Children United blog and in our newsletter.
