The Windmill Trust is committed to respecting and protecting your privacy. We have structured our Web site so that, in general, you can visit Windmill Trust on the Web without identifying yourself or revealing any personal information.

Privacy Statement

Once you choose to provide us personally identifiable information (any information by which you can be identified), you can be assured that it will only be used to support your contact/client relationship with the Windmill Trust.

This statement regarding the privacy of the personally identifiable information you provide online covers the five principles of fair information:

  • Awareness;
  • Choice;
  • Accuracy & Access;
  • Security; and
  • Oversight


The Windmill Trust provides this Online Privacy Statement to make you aware of our privacy policy, practices and of the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.

What We Collect

On some Windmill Trust web pages, you can subscribe to events, make donations and register to receive materials or information. The types of personal information collected at these pages are name, contact and some preference information.

How We Use It

From time to time, we may use your information to contact you to seek your interest in an event or to provide you with information we think would be of particular interest. At a minimum, we will always give you the opportunity to opt out of receiving such direct marketing or contact. We will also follow local requirements, such as allowing you to opt in before receiving unsolicited contact, where applicable.

Who We Share It With

The Windmill Trust will not sell, rent, or lease your personally identifiable information to others. Unless we have your permission or are required by law, we will only share the personal information you provide online with our business partners who are acting on our behalf. Such Windmill Trust business partners are governed by our privacy policies with respect to the use of this data and are bound by the appropriate confidentiality requirements.


The Windmill Trust will not use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without first letting you know and offering you a choice. As previously stated, we will also provide you the opportunity to let us know if you do not wish to receive unsolicited direct marketing materials from us and we will do everything we can to honour such requests. Your permission is always secured first, should we ever share your information with third parties that are not acting on our behalf and governed by our privacy policy.

Accuracy & Access

Windmill Trust strives to keep your personally identifiable information accurate. To opt-out of the Windmill Trust contact list, provide your name, email and/or address and relevant information about subscriptions or registrations you may have with Windmill Trust . This opt-out will cancel all marketing and support communication and newsletters, including offline subscriptions.

How Windmill Trust Uses Cookies

A cookie is a piece of text asking permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. If you agree, then your browser adds the text in a small file. The purpose of a cookie is to help us analyse Web traffic or let us know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow a Web application to respond to you as an individual. By gathering and remembering information about your preferences, the Web application can tailor its operation to your needs, likes and dislikes. For example, when you visit an electronic store, a cookie makes it easy to shop by allowing you to drop things into a shopping cart; the cart itself is not the cookie, the cookie is placed on your hard drive and keeps track of your cart versus others' in use at the same time.

Our website uses a range of analytics services which transmit website traffic data to servers offshore. These services do not identify individual users or associate your IP address with any other data held by the company for other purposes. We use reports provided by analytics providers to help us understand website traffic and webpage usage.

Examples are newsletter registration sites. This cookie, by itself, only tells us that a previous Windmill Trust website visitor, contact or client has returned. If you deny the cookie, you can still use the site anonymously.

By using the Windmill Trust website, you consent to the processing of data about you for the purposes set out above. You can opt out of analytics if you disable or refuse the cookie or disable JavaScript.

We reserve the right to update or change our Privacy Policy at any time and you should check this Privacy Policy periodically. Your continued use of the Service after we post any modifications to the Privacy Policy on this page will constitute your acknowledgment of the modifications and your consent to abide and be bound by the modified Privacy Policy.
