Privacy Policy

At Cancerkin we take your right to privacy very seriously. For that reason we have set out this privacy policy so you can make sure you understand how and why we use the information you give us.

Collection of information
Cancerkin is the sole owner of the information collected anywhere on this site, including the community areas. We may use information gathered in compiling anonymous statistics and research in the course of the organisation’s stated role. However, we will not ever sell, share, or rent personally identifiable information to third parties.

When you register at Cancerkin you may be asked to provide us with the following information: your name, email address, member name and password. You may choose to provide Cancerkin with additional information about yourself such as your postal address. We may request further information from you later on, for example to assist us in research, but in these cases we will always email you beforehand explaining our reasons in detail.

We ask people using our order forms to provide contact information. This is used only to fulfil orders as stated on the online order forms and to enable us to contact you if we have difficulty processing an order.

Sensitive information
The selections you make when using our services may indicate information about you that the Data Protection Act 1998 defines as sensitive, such as your state of health or your sexual orientation. As with all the personal information you provide to us, you can be assured that any sensitive information you choose to supply will be kept in accordance with the terms of the Act and only used in accordance with this privacy policy.

Third parties
We never pass any personally identifiable information to any other organisation or third party. Occasionally we may use the information to compile statistics to assist us in research or campaigning. In these cases, all information will be completely anonymous.

A cookie is a small text marker stored on your computer that enables us to track the use of our website. We use cookies to help us understand what our users’ interests and preferences are to ensure the website is as user-friendly as possible. No personally identifiable information is ever stored on the cookie.

Any personal information will be treated in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. We may revise this privacy policy from time to time. Any change will take effect once the revised privacy policy is available on this website and we have emailed all our users.
