The Climate Challenge Programme Malawi (CCPM) is an initiative of the Scottish Government administered by SCIAF.
At SCIAF your privacy and your trust is of utmost importance to us. We’re committed to ensuring we meet the legal requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and further, we aim to adhere to best practice and provide complete transparency regarding the collection, storage and use of personal data.

CCPM Privacy Statement
What personal information does the CCPM collect and store?
We will collect your email address if you use our Newsletter Sign Up form or we may collect your email address if you provide it at CCPM event or to a representative of the CCPM.
At the time of collecting your email address we will always advise you of how we’ll use your email address to contact you.
How does the CCPM store personal information and keep it safe?
We take appropriate physical, electronic and managerial measures to ensure that we keep your information secure and accurate.
Although we use appropriate security measures once we have received your personal information, the transmission of information over the internet is never completely secure. We do our best to protect your information, but we cannot guarantee the security of information transmitted to our website, so any transmission is at the user’s own risk.
Our Retention Policy ensures we will not keep your email address for any longer than absolutely necessary.
Access to your email address is restricted to staff involved with the CCPM who require the information to perform specific functions of their role. We protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access or disclosure, alteration or destruction with policies and procedures which are continually reviewed and audited to keep in line with best practice and legal requirements.
How will the CCPM use your email address?
Whenever we collect your email address we’ll clearly state how we intend to use it, specifically; you'll receive a quarterly newsletter and other important news and events information via email.
By signing up for the CCPM newsletter any existing contact communication preferences you have with SCIAF will not be effected. By signing up for the CCPM newsletter you are not signing up to receive wider contact from SCIAF, only the CCPM.
Who is my information shared with?
We’ll always keep your details secure and never sell them. As the CCPM is a Scottish Government programme administered by SCIAF, we may be requested to pass your contact details to the Scottish Government on conclusion of the project. We will let you know before doing so.
By signing up for the CCPM newsletter you are not signing up to receive wider contact from SCIAF.
How can I opt-out of communication from the CCPM?
With each email you receive from the CCPM you will have an option to unsubscribe from receiving any further emails.
You can also Contact at any time and notify us you do not want to receive emails.
How will you use my picture on the CCPM website or in printed material?
We’ll always ask for your consent when taking your picture to use in CCPM material, on our website or on our social media channels. We’ll never take pictures of people who say they don’t want to be photographed or filmed, or wish to remain anonymous.
When taking a photo of a larger group (10 or more people) we may seek consent from the group more generally than asking every individual in the group for their consent.
Before we collect the image or story of a CCPM programme participant we will always ask for permission and this will only be shared following informed consent, which can be withdrawn at any time. The image and story of programme participants is an essential element of our work to educate people in Scotland on the lives and communities with which we work overseas and to motivate our supporters to unite with us to end poverty. We will always make the safety and care of our programme participants a priority, changing the original name or not giving specific location details to protect vulnerable adults and children when necessary.
We cannot be held responsible for the privacy of data collected by websites not owned or managed by SCIAF or the CCPM, including those linked through our website.
Emails aren’t always secure, and they may be intercepted or changed after they’ve been sent. SCIAF and the CCPM doesn’t accept liability if this happens. The contents of emails reflect their author's views and not necessarily those of SCIAF or the CCPM.
Please do not send the CCPM any financial data through email.
The information in emails is confidential, so if you’ve received one by mistake, please delete it without copying, using, or telling anyone about its contents.
