How we use the data you give us

If you sign up for the SAPS Associates scheme, we will only use the data you give us to support our work of supporting plant science teaching in schools and colleges within Science & Plants for Schools and our funders, the Gatsby Charitable Foundation. For example, we will send you regular email newsletters. We will never sell your personal data on to third parties. Our website is managed and hosted by a web-development company, who have access to our database of users for administration purposes. They follow the same guidelines as the SAPS team, and will not use your data for any purposes except supporting the work of Science & Plants for Schools.

From time to time, we and our funders commission independent evaluations of our work from external research organisations. We may share the data you give us with these organisations, who will be able to use it for the sole purpose of the work we have commissioned and who will delete it from their records at the end of their evaluation.

You can leave the SAPS Associates scheme at any point, by emailingĀ saps@botanic.cam.ac.uk. Your data will be deleted from our records, and we will not contact you again.
