We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors; this policy sets out how we will treat your personal information.
(1) What information do we collect?
We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal data:
(a) information about your computer and about your visits to and use of this website (including your IP address, geographical location, browser type, referral source, length of visit and number of page views);
(b) information relating to any transactions carried out between you and us on or in relation to this website,
(c) information that you provide to us for the purpose of registering with us;
(d) information that you provide to us for the purpose of subscribing to our website services, email notifications and/or newsletters;
(e) any other information that you choose to send to us;
A cookie is a small file that is used by most websites. It asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive, and is then transferred to the ‘cookie file’ of your web browser on your computer, tablet or phone. Every time you visit a website, information is stored by the cookie and it helps analyse web traffic or enables the website to store things like your username, password and preferences.
On the Leukaemia CARE website we use ‘Session’ cookies and ‘Persistent’ cookies. Session cookies are created temporarily in your browser's subfolder while you are visiting a website. Once you leave the site, the session cookie is deleted. Persistent cookie files remain in your browser's subfolder and are activated again once you visit the website that created that particular cookie. A persistent cookie remains in the browser's subfolder for the duration period set within the cookie's file.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers will automatically accept them when they ask permission, but you can set your browser to decline them if you prefer (just remember that if you do decline them, it may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website).
If you want to delete old cookies and stop cookies from being saved on your hard drive in the future, go to the ‘Help’ menu in the tool bar of your web browser. You should find details of how to change the cookie settings there.
For more information about cookies visit www.allaboutcookies.org.
Cookies do not collect information that could personally identify you. They will not harm your computer, but will help the websites you visit run smoothly. They also assist us in making sure the website is as good as it can be, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful.
(3) Using your personal data
We may use your personal information to:
(a) improve your browsing experience by personalising the website;
(b) enable your use of the services available on the website;
(c) send you general (non-marketing) commercial communications;
(d) send you email notifications which you have specifically requested;
(e) send to you marketing communications relating to our business which we think may be of interest to you by post or, where you have specifically agreed to this, by email or similar technology (you can inform us at any time if you no longer require marketing communications)
(f) provide third parties with statistical information about our users – but this information will not be used to identify any individual user;
(j) deal with enquiries and complaints made by or about you relating to the website;
In addition, we may disclose information about you:
(a) to the extent that we are required to do so by law;
(b) in connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings;
(c) in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk); and
(5) Security of your personal data
We will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.
We will store all the personal information you provide on our secure (password- and firewall- protected) servers. All electronic transactions you make to or receive from us will be encrypted.
Of course, data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet.
You are responsible for keeping your password and user details confidential. We will not ask you for your password.
