Privacy policy

Your contact details

LAB collects e-mail addresses so that we can send you newsletters, details of forth-coming books and our back-catalogue, campaigns and important news about Latin America and LAB. We will not share any of your contact details with anyone else with the single exception of our publishing partners, Practical Action Publishing who co-publish all LAB’s books and handle book distribution and digital subscriptions. Practical Action Publishing’s privacy policy can be read here.

In our fund-raising campaigns we always provide you with the opportunity to donate anonymously. If you choose to provide your name, telephone number, e-mail and/or postal address when you donate, we may store these for use in reporting to you on our campaign, sending out donor rewards and in future fund-raising. We will not share this information with anyone else except Practical Action Publishing. When we use a crowd-funding platform such as Crowdfunder, they collect the data for us.

Data collection and use

If you sign-up through our website, you will be asked to complete a ‘Profile’ form, including your contact details and interests. We may also collect details on printed forms at LAB book launch and other events.

We collect this data for use in LAB’s work to keep you informed about events in Latin America and to promote our publications. We will always provide you with the opportunity to change your profile settings or unsubscribe.
