Privacy

We use your non-medical personal information (e.g. name and address) to give you the information and support you ask for, and for enabling products and services which the Trust consider may be of interest to you to be brought to your attention.

We may also use this information for administrative purposes and to let you know about changes to our services and policies.

Charitable support is vital to the research and services that Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (and its private hospital) is able to carry out and from time to time we would like to send you information on the work of Moorfields Eye Charity.

We would also like to share your data with our university partner, University College London, for information only and solely for the purposes of related development activities.

If you would rather we did not use your name and address for the purposes of our Charity (including creating a profile of your interest and preferences so as to ensure this information is best used and you are not contacted unless it seems appropriate to do so) please write to Managing Director, The John Saunders Suite, 9-11 Bath Street, London EC1V 9LF.

We will not sell your details to any third parties but we may sometimes share your information with our trusted service providers who are authorised to act on our behalf and associated organisations (who work with us to get the information you ask for). In addition, from time to time, we may exchange your personal information with other organisations for the purpose of fraud and credit risk reduction. In these circumstances we always require strict compliance with our instructions and, in the case of third party organisations, require that your personal information is not used for their own business purposes.

We are committed to respecting the privacy of individuals using this website. We do analyse the server log files which contain details of the Internet address (IP address) of computers using the site, pages looked at, the times of day and the type of web browser used. None of this information is linked to individuals. Where users provide us with information or feedback, information is treated in the strictest confidence.
