How Long Do We Keep Your Information For?

We generally keep your information for limited period on completion of its purpose. In some circumstances, it may be necessary to keep your information for longer than that in order to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means.

In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal information so that it can no longer be associated with you, in which case we may use such information without further notice to you.



You always have the right to “opt out” of receiving our marketing. You can exercise the right at any time by contacting us at rianka@10000strong.org. If we send you any marketing emails, we will provide an unsubscribe option to allow you to opt out of any further marketing emails.

If you are an existing customer or are acting as a business, we use your contact details as necessary for our legitimate interests in marketing to you and maintaining a list of potential partners.

If you are not an existing customer, and are not acting as a business, we will only contact you for marketing purposes with your consent (whether we have collected your details directly from you, or through a third party) or following an action from yourself to download our materials or contact us about our products or services.

We will not share your name or contact details with third parties for marketing purposes unless we receive your consent. We do use third party service providers to send out our marketing, but we only allow them to use that information on our instructions and where they have agreed to treat the information confidentially and to keep it secure.

We retain your details on our marketing list until you “opt-out” at which point we add you to our suppression list. We may keep that suppression list indefinitely to comply with our legal obligations to ensure we do not accidentally send you any more marketing.
