Where we collect information about you from
Information you give us directly
We will obtain personal information about you when you enquire or sign up for one of our events, make a donation, fundraise on our behalf, order products or services from us, seek assistance from us, engage with our social media or message boards, communicate with us, tell us your story, or otherwise give us personal information.
We may also obtain personal information about you from an organisation working for us (for fundraising purposes).
Information collected indirectly
Your information may be shared with us by independent event organisations, for example the London Marathon or fundraising sites like Just Giving or Virgin Money Giving. These independent third parties will only share your information when you have indicated that you wish to support Prostate Cancer UK and with your consent.
Information we collect when you use our website
Wherever possible we use aggregated or anonymous information which does not identify individual visitors to our website.
When do we rely on other organisations to provide information?
We may combine the information you provide us with information available from external sources if it enhances our understanding of our supporters. The only aims here are either to improve our marketing and fundraising efficiency or to help us develop new products or services that our supporters may be interested in and will help us to raise vital funds.
The information we get from other organisations may depend on your privacy settings or the responses you have given them in the past. This information may come from the following sources:
Third party organisations
You may have provided permission for a company or other organisation to share your data with third parties, including charities. This could be when you buy a product or a service, register for an online competition or register on a website.
Information available publicly
This may include information found in places such as Companies House and other public records as well as information that has been published in articles/newspapers/online
Depending on your settings or the privacy policies for social media and messaging services like Facebook, WhatsApp or Twitter, you might give us permission to access information from those accounts or services
