The following terms and conditions govern the use of this website

Your use of this site constitutes acceptance of these Terms and Conditions as at the date of your first use of the site.

Prostate Cancer UK reserves the right to change these Terms and Conditions at any time by posting changes online. Your continued use of this site after changes are posted constitutes your acceptance of this agreement as modified.

Welcome to our website

We make every effort to ensure that this website reflects up-to-date, objective and accurate facts about prostate cancer. It is our hope that these will complement your medical advice and help you to make any decisions that you may face. The information provided on this website is designed to support, not replace, the relationship that may exist between you and your doctor.

Use of Content

We are happy for other organisations to link to our website. However, we do not give blanket permission for our information to be used elsewhere. We strive to keep our material up to date. Unregulated, unacknowledged copying of our information will lead to out of date versions being in circulation, and out of our control. If you find our material is a useful service, please link to it directly. This ensures that it remains relevant and up to date. Contact Jocelyne James if you have a specific query about information material.

We are a UK based charity and our materials are relevant only to the UK. We do not produce information about the situation in other countries. If you are not going to be treated in the UK, and choose to download our information, we are not responsible for any differences of emphasis you discover between the UK situation and that in your country of treatment.

Creation of Content

We strive to provide an evidence based information service. This means that we adhere to broadly scientific principles of appraisal. We do not make recommendations about any particular course of action but can guide you through the issues. We do not guide you to one treatment over another where there is no strong evidence to back this up. Nor do we recommend specialists to whom you could go for treatment, as no publicly available data exists to generate the evidence for such recommendations.

Online Community

We provide an online community on this website. In using this, we expect you to show respect towards all others, including those with whom you disagree. Healthy debate is fine. Personal abuse or any other form of offensive or threatening conduct is not. We will not tolerate it whether directed against other users of the website, or towards our staff.

Messages on the online community are not our responsibility. Whilst we strive to ensure that any offensive material is removed from the boards, we do not censor ideas and opinions including those with which we disagree. If you disagree with anything you see in the message boards, we encourage you to reply to the message yourself.

Links to other websites

This website links to other websites. Visitors expect this, and by convention this is regarded as a useful and essential feature of any information website. It does not however, represent any kind of recommendation or endorsement by us of the accuracy of the content of external websites. We provide links that we hope are of interest and use. It is up to you to decide which links to follow. We are not responsible for the detail of what you find there.

Advertising Policy

We do not actively seek advertising for the website but any requests made will be assessed on an individual basis. Advertising and other promotional material that may appear will be presented so that it is quite clearly an advertisement.

We will not give a favourable response to any company or organisation seeking to sell treatments or services directly to men with prostate cancer which imply, suggest or claim that they can cure it.
