What information we collect about you

We collect information about you when you join, make a donation, place an order for our products, complete an online action, interact with our social media tools. Website usage information may be collected using cookies.

How we will use the information about you?

We collect information about you to manage our relationship with you, process any orders and, if you agree, to email you campaigning information we think may be of interest to you.

LU shares data with local LU branches and groups, but only in order to fulfil the aims of LU.  This enables groups to publicise LU events and information.  All LU branches follow data protection guidelines.

We may use your information collected from the website to personalise your repeat visits to our website.

We may disclose your data to our service providers who render services to us or you on our behalf such as delivering postal mail, sending emails and processing payments (all of which are contractually obligated to act only on our instructions and in accordance with applicable laws, including GDPR).

We do not currently engage in reciprocal mailings or pass on your details to third parties.


We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect.

Access to your information and amending your information

If you would like a copy of some or all of the personal information we hold about you, please email info@leftunity.org or write to us at Left Unity, 5 Caledonian Road, London N1 9DX.

We want to make sure that your personal information is accurate and up to date. You may ask us to correct or remove information you think is inaccurate. We will retain some basic information to avoid sending you unwanted materials in the future and to ensure we do not duplicate information.

If you want to know more about cookies please go to www.allaboutcookies.org which explains how cookies work and how you can manage their use.

We currently use cookies to collate general management data which is used to plan enhancements to our services. Some cookies are external managed e.g. GoogleAnalytics, and are covered by their own privacy policies.

Other websites

Our website leftunity.org contains links to other websites. This privacy policy only applies to our website so when you link to other websites you should read their own privacy policies.

Transfer of your data internationally

Our primary web server is located in the UK, however certain processes may mean your information may be stored and processed in and transferred between other countries. Information which you provide may be transferred to countries, including the United States of America, which do not have data protection laws equivalent to those in force in the European Economic Area. The information you enter with the explicit agreement of it being made public (such as petition signatures, comments etc.) will be made publicly available to the whole internet community and therefore may be transferred to any country.

Changes to our privacy policy

We keep our privacy policy under regular review and will place any updates on this webpage [www.leftunity.org/privacy-policy]. This privacy policy was reviewed and updated March 2018.
