At Trees for Cities, we rely on the generosity and support of private individuals like you to help us to create greener cities by revitalising urban areas and enhancing the lives of the people that live in them. That is why we want to be completely transparent about why we need the personal details we request when you support us and how we will use them.
The first time you give us personal details – for example, when you sign up to receive email updates, register for an event or make a donation – you may receive follow up information from us directly relevant to this activity, including how your support is helping.
If you have provided us with consent to use your details for marketing purposes, then we may also contact you about our projects and fundraising activities and other ways to support us.
We couldn’t do what we do, without the support from our supporters. Our aim is to communicate with you in a way that makes you want to stay involved with us for as long as possible, as you see the value and impact of your support.
Please be assured that we will not, under any circumstances, share your data with anyone for marketing purposes and you will not receive offers from other companies or organisations as a result of giving your details to us.
We may need to share limited information with our service providers who help us to prepare and send you our communications or process your donations and other responses. However, we will not allow these organisations to use your data for their own purposes and will take care to ensure that they keep your data secure.
If at any time you wish to change how we communicate with you, or update the information we hold, please do get in touch.
You can opt out of our emails by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of our messages.

Sometimes we may use third parties to supplement the information that we hold as we only want to send you information which we believe you will be interested in.
