Any personal information you provide, including your email address, will not be passed on to any third party (other than any contractors or firms working on our behalf, who have entered into a confidentiality agreement), except where you have signed a petition, or similar, to be presented to a third party.
We and our partner suppliers do not keep personal financial information for longer than necessary to process payment. We store your personal details to record your support and interaction with Alzheimer’s Research UK and to record your preferences for communication. Alzheimer’s Research UK is the sole owner of any information we collect via our websites. If you use a credit or debit card to make a payment your details are processed securely to RBS Worldpay and Committed Giving, who we employ to do our online payment processing. We do not keep your card details online, other than the type of card used. We store data in accordance with the Data Protection Act and are PCI compliant.
If you sign up to an email list, we will send you relevant information according to where and how you signed up. You may request to be removed at any time you wish. We promise to unsubscribe you from our mailing lists within one week of receiving your notification.
If you provide your address or phone number, we would like to write to you or call you. You may at any point request not to receive such communications any more.
If you provide your mobile phone number, we would like to call or send you text messages. You may at any point request not to receive calls, text messages or both any more.

We use high-quality encryption called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to protect your personal information when appropriate. All the information provided to us is stored securely, within the European Economic Area, once we receive it. People working on behalf of Alzheimer’s Research UK only have access to the information they need, and the web servers are stored in a high-security environment that is kept under 24-hour guard.
We use traffic analysis tools to analyse website traffic in order to help us continually improve the design, content and layout of pages.
'Cookies' are small pieces of information sent by a computer’s web server to a web browser, which enables the server to collect information from the browser. A cookie essentially takes the form of a small text file deposited on your computer’s hard drive. We may place a cookie on your machine to help with the gathering of the above website data or, where necessary, to ensure that pages where you log in function correctly. We do not access any information stored in cookies placed on your machine by other websites.
If you would like to prevent our cookies from being stored on your computer in future, you can do so by referring to your Internet browser’s instructions. You can do this by clicking on the Help menu.

We obtain personal information from you when you enquire about the activities of Alzheimer’s Research UK, register with us to receive a newsletter, order cards, gifts, or information packs, make a donation to us or otherwise provide us with personal information. We may also receive information about you from third parties, for example from a friend who wants to send you a gift card or make a donation in your name.
The types of information typically collected include names, dates of birth, email addresses, postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers, and credit/debit card details for donations – as stated above, these are not stored but are used only for processing.
If you register with us to receive news and information, kindly make donations, or fill in any donation forms, we keep a record of the personal information you provide to send you our newsletter. Occasionally we will also send you other updates on our work, Alzheimer’s Research UK appeals or direct mail that we feel may be of interest to you.
We will sometimes launch digital initiatives that allow or enable you to login in via third party services such as Facebook or Twitter, to integrate your user experience. To do this, we will ask you to login to said relevant third party service. When you do this, we collect relevant information to enable our initiative to access that Third Party Service and your data contained within. You will always be asked before we access any information held in the Third Party Service, but we are not responsible for how Third Party Services use, store and disclose your information, and will not accept responsibility for the privacy practices or other actions of any Third Party Services.
Alzheimer’s Research UK does not sell or rent user information to anyone. From time to time, however, we agree with other like-minded organisations to write to some of each other’s supporters, for the mutual benefit of both organisations. We only do this if we have your consent to do so. We may also need to disclose your information if required to do so by law.
You have the right to request to see all personal data that we hold about you. The law permits us to charge you a fee of £10 for providing this information. If you would like to exercise this right, or have any concerns about the personal data held on you, please let us know. Any personal data that you inform us is incorrect will be amended or deleted, as appropriate.
By providing us with your personal data you consent to the collection and use of any information you provide in accordance with the above purposes set out in this privacy statement.
We cannot be held responsible for the privacy of data collected by websites not owned or managed by Alzheimer’s Research UK.
If your personal details change, please help us to keep your information up to date by notifying us.
