Privacy Policy

Last updated Sept. 15 2018.

Who we are

We are Autistic Empire, whose registered address is at Kemp House, 160 City Road, EC1V 2NX.  We have activities throughout the world and online but all are part of our organisation.

Autistic Empire is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy and security.  Whenever you provide us with your personal information we will treat that information in accordance with this statement, our terms and conditions and current data protection legislation.

Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it.  This statement may change from time to time, so please check this page periodically.

Who will see your personal data

• We promise not to share your details with any other organisation unless there are immediate concerns about potential abuse or physical harm or where an indictable offence may have been committed.  Then, and only then, we may share details with the relevant agencies upon the authorisation of the Director of Imperial Trading and Services Limited.
• In providing assistance through our Information & Advice Service we may need to contact other agencies on your behalf – your signed authorisation will always be sought before we do this.
• We will never give your data away or sell it to anyone.

What information we keep and why?

• We process personal data relating to Citizens, supporters, staff, and volunteers of our organisation.  This is to allow us to offer services, products and help and guidance to our Citizens and to be able to keep people up to date with our work and plans.
• If you are in receipt of one or more of our services we will hold your data for six years after you cease to receive a service.  At this time all paper records will be destroyed and computerised records will be anonymised.
• If you are a supporter of Autistic Empire we will hold information about your donations but two years after you stop supporting us or as soon as you withdraw your consent we will anonymise your data.  This means that details of your donations will be kept but your personal data will be deleted.  This is for historical and statistical purposes only and it is not possible to identify an individual from this data.
