Alzheimer's Research UK is committed to protecting your privacy. We will not sell or rent out the personal information that you give to us to anyone else.

How do we collect information?
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 gift cards 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.

What information do we collect?
The types of information typically collected include names, dates of birth, e-mail addresses, postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers, and credit/debit card details.

How do we use this information?
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.

If you make a donation using the online form, we receive your name, address and card details in order to process the payment.

What about 'Cookies'?
'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. It essentially takes the form of a small text file deposited on your computer's hard drive.

Alzheimer's Research UK uses cookies to count overall visitor numbers to its website, to ensure that you can browse our web site quickly and easily, to identify you when you visit again and to keep track of your browsing patterns. The use of Cookies does not give us access to the rest of your computer.

If you would like to prevent our cookies 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. Please note however that if you disable our Cookies you may not be able to access certain services or facilities on our site and your use of our site may be limited.

How do we protect personal information?
We use a secure server when you make a donation via our website. We also take all appropriate measures to ensure that the information disclosed to us is kept secure, accurate and up to date and is held for only as long as is necessary for the purposes for which it is used.

Will we disclose the information we collect to third parties?
Alzheimer's Research UK does not sell or rent user information to anyone. From time to time, however, we agree with other likeminded 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.

Accessing your information
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 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 which you inform us is incorrect will be amended or deleted, as appropriate.

We reserve the right to amend this privacy statement. If we do so, we will post notice of any changes on our website and you will be deemed to have accepted such changes.
