The website is compliant with the Data Protection Act 2018.
We collect information from our users on the web site – this is for customer service purposes, and we also collect data from our users so that we can contact them regarding their queries. Vascular Research UK is the sole owner of the personal information collected from this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others. During registration in order to access our ‘Community’ section or to submit a query on the ‘Contact’ page, users have to complete personal details fields or a registration form. During such registration a user is required to give contact information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact the user about the services on our site for which they have expressed interest. It is optional for the user to provide demographic information, but encouraged so we can provide a more personalised experience. For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information. If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
