We only collect email address from registration to a particular service we offer: such as ‘email notifications’ or when leaving a comment on the website and your postal details should you request to receive a print copy of the magazine.

From time to time we may collect aggregate information on: 

a) what pages consumers access or visit
b) whether they are new visitors or returning visitors
c) which country they come from
d) what browser they are using

The information we collect is used:

a) for internal monitoring purposes

Cancer World promises to protect user privacy through the appropriate use of the latest security technology.

You will not receive unsolicited marketing emails from Cancer World magazine/ESO and/or from third parties screened by us unless you have agreed to this.

We will not pass on any individual user details (including your email address) for third party use unless we have your prior consent.

We always ensure that contractors we use in connection with the running of the website and services (for example hosting providers) are subject to strict contractual obligations. They are only able to process data on our behalf and in accordance with our principles and instructions and not for any other independent purpose.

What information do we collect? 

We collect information on our users as follows: through cookies, through registration.

Through cookies
: every time a user visits our website, we generate an "anonymous" cookie. This enables us to know whether or not you've visited the site before; we look to see if the cookie is on your machine, and if there isn't one we generate a new one. This allows us to track some important indicators - how many individual unique users we have, and how often they visit the site. This cookie cannot be used to identify an individual; it can only be used for these statistical purposes. We also serve anonymous "geo-targeting" cookies, which are used by our geo-targeting software (which itself works out which countries users are coming in from, by looking at the information the user's browser transmits to us). Again, this cookie is completely anonymous.

Cookies can be turned off, if you should wish to, however this can cause further problems: you won’t be able to register for email notifications and you will also find that you will receive more pop-ups and advertising on your screen. If you do wish to turn your cookies off simply go to the Tool menu in Internet Explorer, click on internet options and then privacy, here you can change the settings and decide to accept or block cookies.
