Who we are?

Yorkshire Cancer Research exists so that more people in our region can live longer healthier lives, free of cancer. Thanks to the kindness of supporters, our independent charity has been funding research and saving lives since 1925.

What is personal data?

Any information that could be used to identify you. Personal data means things like your name, your age, where you live and how we can contact you.

Where do we get your personal data and what do we do with it?

Basically, we get it from you! We have listed some of the ways we may get personal data below.

You might get in touch with us to help raise money for us.

When you are in touch with us we will sometimes ask you for personal information. Personal information means things like your name, your age, where you live and how we can contact you.

But that’s only if you are 14 or over. The first thing we would want to know, and check, is how old you are.

If you are under 14 then we have to ask a parent or another adult who looks after you to give us information about you. We tell them how we keep your information safe in our other privacy notice which is a lot longer than this one.

If you are aged 14-17 then you can give us permission (this is called ‘consent’) to record some data about you depending on what we are doing and hold on to it for as long as we need to.

So, if you are raising money then you might want to get emails from us about fundraising events. We’d need to keep in touch with you about that.

If you apply for a volunteer role with the Charity, you will provide us with some personal data when you apply. We may also get some more personal data as we go through the application process with you.

It is really important to know that we are really careful with this information.

All staff are invited to safeguarding training upon joining the charity which means that we know how to keep you safe and that includes how we keep your information safe. We don’t share it unless you tell us we can (or in circumstances where we are extremely worried about you in which case we may not need your consent), and we store it safely.

How long do we keep your personal data?

We have thought a lot about how long we should hold on to personal data. We believe it is only as long as you would consider reasonable, or where we have to because  legal requirements. We have a list of how long we keep all information and what we do with it (delete or archive) when its time is up! We keep it very safe on our systems, just like you would expect us to.

Your rights

You have all the same ‘rights’ with regard to your personal data as adults do – this is a very good thing.

You can find out more about your rights in our other privacy notice.

Get in touch with us

If you want to know more about the personal data we hold about you, or if you have any questions then please get in touch with us via email at, or via telephone on 01423 501269.
