FCCT's Privacy notice

Find out more about how we maintain your trust as you visit our website.

Who we are

At the Farm Carbon Cutting Toolkit, we are committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of all visitors to our website. FCCT will not sell, rent or trade email lists with other companies or businesses for marketing purposes, when you sign up to the FCCT email list, that’s it. This privacy policy provides more information on when and why we collect your personal information, how we use it, and how we keep it secure.

Types of data we collect

Google analytics

When someone visits the FCCT website, we use Google Analytics to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out how many visitors access different parts of the website and what content is the most popular, and what might need modifying. This information is processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

Mailing lists

We use a third – party provider, Mail Chimp to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information please see MailChimp’s privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to FCCT mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing our data protection officer Becky Willson at [email protected].

Access to your personal information

You are entitled to view, amend or delete the personal information that we hold. Email your request to our data protection officer, Becky Willson, at [email protected].

Data in the Farm Carbon Calculator

When you enter data in our Farm Carbon Calculator it is secure in your account and can only be shared with your consent. Sharing your data is enacted by either the 'Share Report' function, which generates a link that you can share with anyone you choose; anyone with that link can see your report. Alternatively you could download a PDF, or graphs within your report and share these with people by attaching them to an email, etc. Again, this is at your discretion entirely and you have complete control over your data.

Three people within FCCT have Administrator access to the Calculator which enables us to view any user's report. However this is not something routinely done and your data will never be shared by us to anyone else, unless you expressly ask us to do so by email. Access is tightly controlled and all personnel within FCCT are compliant with our protocols around data security and privacy.

We do collate data from all users, so that we can anonymously aggregate data from farms to understand trends and create benchmarking data. However, to be clear, this will never identify any user, nor will your specific user data be released to any other person, organsation or business.

You may delete any of your carbon reports at any time, at which point it is no longer visible to anyone, inclusing us. We treat your data security and privacy seriouly.

Changes to this privacy notice

This privacy notice will be reviewed and, if necessary updated, every 6 months. The last review took place in December 2019.
