  • Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

  • Embedded content from other websites

Pages on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, feeds etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. Google forms, Facebook feed, Instagram feed,  Twitter feed, Google Analytics and other embedded content is on our pages.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website or some other tracking mechanism that they have utilised across their product and services.


We collect information also in order to:

  • create a database
  • analyse
  • generate reports
  • run marketing campaigns
  • send notifications
  • communicate with you
  • enhance security
  • automated spam detecting services
  • develop new products and services

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

Forms filled are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up and keep a track record of your requests, and to analyse how we can provide more effective services.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Information Sharing

Besides our staff and contract staff who will process this information, we may in future  also share this information with 3rd party service providers (providers may change depending on contracts).


We keep your information safe by following IT best practices and asking our 3rd party vendors to adhere to IT best practices.


You have the right to ask for a copy of any personal information we hold about you, and to ask for it to be corrected if you think it is wrong. If you’d like to ask for a copy of your information, or to have it corrected, please contact us at admin@helenclark.foundation.
