The Follicular Lymphoma Foundation is committed to protecting your privacy and being transparent about how we use your data. We will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully. This page tells you about how we collect, use and store your personal information.
1. Why do we collect information?
We need to collect some personal details so we can respond appropriately to your contact with us. For example, to make sure we can process your donation, thank you for your support or send you information you have requested. We also collect statistical information to see how our website, social media channels and emails are performing in order to improve our communications.
Occasionally, we take time to learn more about our supporters. We use profiling and screening techniques to ensure communications are relevant and timely, and to provide an improved experience for our supporters. It also allows us to target our resources effectively. We do this because it allows us to understand the background of the people who support us and helps us to make appropriate requests to supporters who may be able and willing to give more than they already do. Importantly, it enables us to raise more funds, sooner, and more cost-effectively, than we otherwise would.
When building a profile we may analyse geographic, demographic and other information relating to you in order to better understand your interests and preferences in order to contact you with the most relevant communications. In doing this, we may use additional information from third party sources when it is available. Such information is compiled using publicly available data about you, for example addresses, listed Directorships or typical earnings in a given area. If you would like to find out more about how, why and when we research our supporters please contact us at email@example.com. If at any time you would like to opt-out of your data being used in the ways described above please do contact us by email firstname.lastname@example.org or on +44 203 417 8583.
