Privacy and Security

Cookies are small pieces of information sent by a web server to a web browser, which enable the server to collect information from the browser. Essentially it takes the form of a small text file deposited on your computer’s hard drive.

The only cookies that are used on this site are ones that anonymously track visitors or enhance your experience of the site.

The use of cookies does not give us access to the rest of your computer or to personal information about you.

If you’re not happy with this, please follow this external link to learn how to change your browser settings to not accept cookies at all.

Personal Detail Protection

Information that you submit in a registration or enquiry form is encrypted and stored on a secure server. We also use encryption and a secure server when you make a donation via our website. However the transmission of information over the Internet is never 100% secure so while we try to protect your personal information, we can’t guarantee the security of any information you submit to us via our website.

We also take appropriate measures to ensure that that the information we receive is kept secure, accurate and up to date, and kept only for so long as is necessary for the purposes for which it is used. All access to our secure server is restricted only to authorized staff.

Legal Compliance

AAF may need to disclose your information if required to do so by law or in response to a court order or, in exceptional circumstances, where we think someone is at serious risk of being harmed, we may contact the police or a local authority safeguarding team.


By providing us with your personal information, you consent to the collection and use of that information for the purposes and in the manner described in this Privacy Policy.


Our website may include links to websites run by other organisations. AAF is not responsible for the privacy practices of other organisations’ websites, so you should read their privacy policies carefully.

Data Protection (Rights of Access)

You have the right to ask for a copy of the information we hold about you, and to have any inaccuracies in your information corrected.
