Privacy policy

We take great care to preserve your privacy and safeguard any personal details you share with us. We aim to be clear when we collect your data and not do anything you would not reasonably expect. This policy explains how we collect and use your personal information and your rights to have your personal data protected. Examples of your personal information would include your name, address and email address.

By understanding more about you and what you want from us, we are able to make sure that the experience you have of helping us is both positive and rewarding. Your personal information can help us to plan more effectively and efficiently so that we are in the best position possible to save lives and improve the quality of life of everyone affected by bowel cancer.

We have now moved to an ‘opt-in only’ marketing policy. This means that we will only communicate with those that have explicitly stated that they are happy for us to do so via their preferred channel(s) (email, post, phone or text message).

We are totally committed to protecting your information and using it responsibly. Please read our policy carefully to understand how we collect, use and store your information.

The processing of your information is carried out by or on behalf of Bowel Cancer UK.

Bowel Cancer UK is a registered charity in England and Wales (1071038), Scotland (SC040914) and a registered company in England and Wales (3409832).

Why we use your information

We will only use your information where we have a legal basis to do so and will always respect your rights.

Where we use your information, it may be because you have consented to us doing so or because we consider we have a legitimate interest to do so. Where we do rely on a legitimate interest to use your information, we will always ensure that this is done in a way so as not to be intrusive or cause distress, and that respects your rights. Other reasons may include using information because we have a legal obligation to do so or because we have to fulfil contractual obligations.
