GDPR – Don’t get ticked off!
New General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) come in to effect in May 2018 and we want to make sure you continue to hear from us in the ways you want to, whether that’s by email, post, telephone or text. The new data protection laws mean we can’t contact you after then, unless you tell us.
So please tick yes in the box on the form we will be sending to you by post or email in the next few months to confirm you want to continue hearing from us. You know how important you are to us and we don’t want to lose you, so please tick the box so you don’t get ticked off!
The new privacy regulations are an opportunity for you to reduce unwanted communications but they also present a major problem for us. We rely on supporters like you to keep in touch and be inspired to fund raise, campaign and raise awareness. By engaging with us we can continue our vital practical and emotional support.
Why this is so important
- We cannot improve the quality of life for all those affected by cancer without supporters like you.
- We know you would not want us to waste money on communications you do not want.
- We want to work to the highest standards of fundraising and data protection regulation.
What you need to do
If you hear from us by email, it will include a short simple form, which only takes a couple of minutes to complete before you return it to us. If by post, the letter will include the same straightforward form and we would urge you to fill it in and return it to us as soon as possible.
You have our absolute assurance that we will never sell or share your personal information with other organisations and, if you change your mind, you will never hear from us again.
We are determined to support cancer patients, their family and carers with vital practical and emotional support, but we can’t do this without you, so please stay with us and tick yes. Your support truly does make a difference, so a huge thank you from me to you. It’s only by working together we can help the 86 people a day who will be given the devastating news they have cancer.
