MAVES does not sell or otherwise transfer any personal data to commercial companies or other organisations, with the exception of web statistics (see below) which are hosted and managed by a third party company (ie Google, Inc and other web analytics services).
We do not transfer any personal data to any other organisations. We collaborate with organizations operating similar purposes such as Sussex Wildlife Trust and Arundel Agenda 21 but this collaboration does not involve any transfer of personal data.
Due to its growth in size, MAVES is required to register with the Charities Commission in 2018. It will do so under the name of Arun Countryside Trust CIO, with the name MAVES continuing to be used for its natural-environment activity. This re-branding and registration does not involve any transfer of personal data to a different organization.
