The information Manuptocancer get from other organisations may depend on your privacy settings or the responses you have given them in the past. This information may come from the following sources:

Third party organisations

You may have provided permission for a company or other organisation to share your data with third parties, including charities. This could be when you buy a product or a service, register for an online competition or register on a Manuptocancer site.

What information do Manuptocancer collect?

Personal information is any information that can be used to identify you. The type and quantity of information Manuptocancer collect depends very much on why you are providing it.

Credit/debit card details are only collected to process your financial transaction and are not stored on our electronic systems, in compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).

Data protection law recognises that certain categories of personal information are more sensitive such as health information, race, religious beliefs and political opinions. Manuptocancer will not collect ‘sensitive personal data’ unless there is a clear reason for doing so, for example a challenging fundraising event where Manuptocancer may need specific information to ensure Manuptocancer provide the appropriate facilities or support to enable you to participate.

How do Manuptocancer use your information?

Manuptocancer will mainly use your data to:

  1. further our charitable aims
  2. provide you with the services, products or information you have requested from us
  3. develop and improve the services, products or information Manuptocancer provide.
  4. ask you to participate in research or supporter event satisfaction surveys (this is voluntary)
  5. administer your donation
  6. claim Gift Aid on your donations
  7. support your fundraising efforts
  8. keep a record of your relationship with us
  9. ensure Manuptocancer know how you would like to be contacted by us

Targeting communications

Manuptocancer will sometimes use profiling and screening techniques to analyse geographic, demographic and other information relating to you to better understand your interests and preferences so Manuptocancer can contact you with the most relevant communications. Personal details collected this way will only be used to provide you with information you would reasonably expect or have agreed to. Manuptocancer do this to understand more about the background and interests of the people who support us, allowing us to target our resources effectively. Manuptocancer may use additional information from publicly available sources where it is appropriate, which allows us to make suitable requests to individuals who may be able and wish to support us further.

Profiling and screening means that you receive information that is appropriate, relevant and timely and which Manuptocancer hope will enhance your experience as a supporter. It means that Manuptocancer can raise more funds, sooner and more cost-effectively than Manuptocancer would have otherwise, essential in our fight against prostate cancer.


It is important to us that you receive the level of information about Manuptocancer that suits you. In accordance with your wishes, Manuptocancer will contact you to let you know about the progress Manuptocancer are making against our Ten Years to Tame Prostate Cancer strategy, the latest research developments, fundraising opportunities so you can continue to help us with our fight, or to ask for a donation or other support.

Email/text marketing

If you have actively provided your consent to us along with your email address and/or mobile phone number, Manuptocancer may contact you via email or text message. By subscribing to Manuptocancer’s emails or opting in to email communications from us, you have granted us the right to use the email for marketing purposes. When Manuptocancer email you, Manuptocancer may place a tag (also known as ‘tracking pixel’) on the email Manuptocancer send out. This allows us to monitor the performance of our email marketing activity.

Post/telephone marketing

If you have provided us with your postal address or telephone number Manuptocancer may send you direct mail or telephone you about our work and opportunities to support us, unless you have told us that you would prefer not to receive such information.  Manuptocancer actively check telephone numbers against the Telephone Preference Service.  If your telephone number is listed on the TPS, Manuptocancer will only contact you by telephone if you have specifically consented to receive these calls.

Legitimate interest

Before using your data, Manuptocancer have to decide whether Manuptocancer have a ‘legitimate interest’ to do so. This means that communicating with you is the best way of being able to meet our goal of stopping men dying of prostate cancer.

Manuptocancer think really carefully to make sure that your privacy and rights aren’t affected. Processing your data might mean analysing the information you have given us, in order that Manuptocancer are then able to offer you the most appropriate communications based on your preferences, such as direct marketing appeals. Manuptocancer will always want to ensure that Manuptocancer are talking to people who care about taming prostate cancer as much as Manuptocancer do.

Of course our ‘legitimate interests’ aren’t more important than yours; Manuptocancer will only process your data or communicate with you if Manuptocancer think you want to hear from us, and Manuptocancer are sure that analysing what you have told us doesn’t infringe on your privacy. And at any time, Manuptocancer will respect your wishes if you don’t want us to process your data or communicate with you any more.

Manuptocancer will never sell or share your personal details to third parties for the purpose of marketing. If Manuptocancer run an event in partnership with another named organisation your details may need to be shared with them.
