Privacy policy

Bowel Cancer UK and Beating Bowel Cancer is the UK’s leading bowel cancer charity. We are determined to save lives, improve the quality of life and support all those affected by bowel cancer. We enable and fund research, provide information and support to patients and their families, educate the public and professionals about the disease and campaign for early diagnosis and best treatment and care for all.

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 wouldn’t reasonably expect.

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 for all those affected by bowel cancer.

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, text, phone or post) and for their preferred areas of interest (fundraising, research, policy and campaigns and improving people’s understanding of bowel cancer).

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.
