It is also a charity registered in Scotland with the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (Number: SC029572.) Walk the Walk in Action Limited and Walkwear Limited operate this website ("the Site") and we respect the privacy of individuals who use the site.
Below we have set out how we use the information that you give us and how the Site operates.
Walk the Walk Worldwide, Walk the Walk in Action Limited and Walkwear Limited (together “WTW”) process your personal data (as defined by the Data Protection Act 1998 (“the DPA”)) for the following purposes:
We collect personal information from you when you communicate with us by any media. We may also collect personal data which relate to you from third parties.
Certain personal information is defined by the DPA as “Sensitive Personal Data”. A definition of sensitive personal data is provided here. In some circumstances, WTW provides you with the opportunity to inform us of your sensitive personal data, unless we are permitted to process such sensitive personal data under the provisions of the DPA, we will ask for your consent. In general, the sensitive personal data collected by WTW is limited to information in connection with your physical or mental health or condition.
WTW will also collect information to perform anonymised, statistical analysis of your interaction with the Site.
WTW ensures that it is permitted to process your personal data. If no statutory condition applies to the form of processing we undertake, we can only undertake such processing with your consent.
You may withdraw your consent to our processing your personal data in respect of marketing or transfers to benefiting charities or transfer to Walk the Walk charities outside of the EEA by writing to the address below.
If a statutory condition applies allowing WTW to process your personal data and you withdraw consent to process your personal data this will not necessarily mean that WTW ceases to process your personal data as it may, for example, be under a statutory duty to continue to process your personal data for some purposes e.g. to keep copies of commercial transactions for a minimum of seven years. Any personal information you send to us will be treated in the strictest confidence.
WTW may continue to process your personal data after you have ceased to be connected with WTW or its events or we have sent you any information requested by you.
In some circumstances WTW may be required by law to share sensitive personal data about you to a third party. Otherwise WTW does not share sensitive personal data outside of the companies forming the WTW Group without your consent.
Please note that you do not have to give specific consent and a failure to inform us that you do not want us to transfer your data will allow us to make a transfer.
Your personal data may be shared as set out in the above purposes. If you do not wish us to share your personal data with any third party for marketing purposes, please write to us at the address below.
Please note that information displayed on the Site or sent to WTW over the Internet may be transferred outside of the EEA, where data protection laws are not as strong as within the EEA. If you have any concerns in relation to such transfers, you should not use the Internet as a means of communication with WTW.
Your telephone calls and e-mails to us may be recorded and monitored for quality control purposes. We may also intercept communications made to individual members of staff at WTW when this is required for business purposes.
We may use technology to track the patterns of behaviour of visitors to the Site. This can include using a "cookie", pieces of information that are transferred to an individual user's hard drive for record keeping purposes.
At the present time the cookie we send to your computer stores only basic information which you enter into the Site, which may include your name, address, phone number and email address. It is possible for WTW to retrieve the information stored in the cookie, however this retrieval is unlikely at the current time.
The cookies function by saving your passwords and site preferences. As a result it is possible to speed up your future activities at the Site and allow WTW to provide you with information specifically tailored to your interests. You can usually modify your browser to prevent this happening. The information collected in this way can be used to identify you unless you modify your browser settings.
