Privacy Policy

CURE International UK respects and protects the privacy of its donors:

Information about donations is treated with strict confidentiality. CURE International UK does not lend, exchange, rent, or sell our donor list to other organisations or businesses or any other third party.

The personal information donors provide when making an online donation is protected and will not be disclosed to any third parties.

Some donors prefer anonymity. CURE respects completely the wishes of contributors who prefer that their donation remain confidential.

Employees of CURE International UK who have access to donor identifiable information in connection with processing donations are required to keep the information confidential.

Periodically donors will receive newsletters and requests for contributions if they have opted-in to do so. Donors have the option to be removed from the mailing list by contacting the CURE International UK office at uk.info@cure.org or 0207 304 4784.

How do we collect your personal information?

We collect personal information about you when you interact with us (e.g. by phone, post or online), enquire about our activities, make a donation, participate in an event, volunteer with us, visit our website or otherwise provide us with your personal information.

What personal information do we collect?

Personal information we collect about you may include your name, postal address, email address, phone numbers, credit or debit card details, and whether you are a tax payer so that we can claim Gift Aid.

How do we use personal information?

We use the personal information collected from supporters for a number of purposes, including:

When you use our secure online donation or payment pages, you will be directed to a specialist supplier company, who will receive your credit or debit card details and contact information to process the transaction. We do not retain your credit or debit card details.

 Do we provide information to other parties?

We will never sell your data to any third party. We will not share your details with other charities for marketing purposes.

We will only share information with other organisations where we have your permission to do so in accordance with this Privacy Policy, where it is necessary for a legitimate reason connected with the services we offer or where it is required by law or regulation.

Sometimes, we may need to share your information with a small number of trusted partners (service providers, agents and affiliated companies) for the purposes outlined above. Where we use third parties, we require them to adhere to appropriate controls to protect personal information.

This means we will only contact those that have opted in to receiving such communications. You cannot remove yourself from our database, but you can prevent unwanted communication.
