The Evan Cornish Foundation (ECF) is committed to safeguarding your privacy online. We use the information we collect about you to help us understand more about how our site is used and to be able to send you communications about ECF that may be of interest to you, either electronically or otherwise. The ‘personally identifiable information’ is information that enables us to identify you, such as your email address, name, title, and address.

Please read the following policy to understand how your personal information will be treated. This policy may change from time to time so please check back periodically.

1. What personally identifiable information does ECF collect from me?

Like many websites, ECF uses cookies in order to provide you with a more personalised web service.
A cookie is a text-only string of information that we pass to your computer’s hard disk through your web-browser so that the website can remember who you are. Cookies cannot be used by themselves to identify you.

A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the “lifetime” of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number.  For more information about cookies, please see

We use session type cookies on our website: which are temporary cookies that remain in the cookies file of your browser until you leave the site;

If you do not wish to receive cookies you can easily modify your web browser to refuse cookies, or to notify you when you receive a new cookie. However, you may not be able to use all the interactive features of our site if cookies are disabled, and so in order to enjoy the ECF site to the full, we recommend that you leave them switched on.

ECF uses the information we collect about you to help us with understanding more about how our site is used.

3. Who is collecting your information?

When you are on the ECF website and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with ECF alone unless stated otherwise.

4. With whom does ECF share your information?

As a general rule, ECF will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information, except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it

5. What are my choices regarding, collection, use and distribution of my information?

ECF does not sell, rent or share user information with anyone. We may on occasion work with 3rd parties to contact our supporters about ECF, however the 3rd party would be bound by a confidentiality agreement that would prevent them from using this information for any other purpose.

6. What is ECF’s policy on allowing me to update, correct, or delete my personally identifiable information?

The accuracy of your individual identifying information is important to ECF. We are working on ways to make it easier for you to review and correct the information that ECF maintains about you. In the meantime, if you change email address or any of the other information we hold is inaccurate or out of date, please use the contact us form here.

7. How does ECF protect my personal identifiable information?

ECF is committed to taking reasonable steps to protect the individual identifying information that you provide to us.

9. What security precautions are in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of my information?

When you give ECF personal information that information may be stored and processed we take steps to ensure that your information is treated securely.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, ECF cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
