2015: Will you chip in?

Dear 38 Degrees member,

What we’ve achieved together in 2014 is incredible. But let’s be honest - we’re not done yet. If we’re really going to shake things up - and fight to make our democracy work for us - more of us need to invest in making it happen.

38 Degrees is 100% funded by lots of people chipping in what they can - and there are millions of us across the UK. If anyone can drown out the voice of big business - it’s us. Will you chip in £2 or £3 a week to help make sure that in 2015 people power overtakes big business?

If everyone reading this right now gave £3, our fundraiser would be done within a few hours. Our enemies work on behalf of just a few people. When we come together in our millions we are stronger.

Let’s make 2015 the year people power overtakes the powerful few.

Thanks for being involved,

David

Privacy policy

38 Degrees is committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors. We believe you have the right to privacy on the web. This policy sets out how we will treat your personal information.

1. What information do we collect?
We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal data:
(a) information about your computer and about your visits to and use of this website including your IP address, geographical location, browser type, referral source, length of visit and number of page views;
(b) information relating to any transactions carried out between you and us on or in relation to this website, including information relating to any contribution you make to us;
(c) information that you provide to us for the purpose of registering with us e.g. your email address and other personal information when you sign up;

2. Do we use cookies?
The 38 Degrees website uses "cookies" to help personalise your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize 38degrees.org.uk pages, or register with 38degrees.org.uk site or services, a cookie helps 38degrees.org.uk to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information. When you return to the same 38degrees.org.uk web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the 38degrees.org.uk features that you customized.

We use Google Analytics to analyse the use of this website. Google Analytics generates statistical and other information about website use by means of cookies, which are stored on users' computers. The information generated relating to our website is used to create reports about the use of the website. Google will store this information. Google's privacy policy is available at: http://www.google.com/privacypolicy.html. Our advertisers/payment services providers may also send you cookies.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the 38degrees.org.uk services or other web sites you visit.
