Privacy Policy

Our website address is:

At CCLASP we are committed to protecting your privacy and personal information, which is why we want to be completely transparent about why we need the personal information we request and how we will use it.

Developing a better understanding of service user and supporter needs through personal information allows us to make better decisions, communicate more efficiently and ultimately helps us to reach our vision – supporting every child and young person diagnosed with cancer.

In this policy we use the term personal information to mean any information you give us from which you can be identified. This might include your name, your home address, your personal email contact details, or your telephone number. Personal information does not include information where your identity has been removed (i.e. anonymous data).

We are totally committed to protecting your information and using it responsibly.

The processing of your information is carried out by or on behalf of CCLASP SCIO. CCLASP SCIO is a registered charity in Scotland (SC047235) and we are listed on the OSCR register of Scottish Charities.

Our Data Protection Administrator provides help and guidance to make sure we apply good practice standards to protecting your personal information. Our DPA can be reached by writing to our registered office (marked for the attention of the DPA) if you have any questions about how we use your personal information.
