ICPCN is committed to protecting your privacy.
Personal information covers any data that enables ICPCN to identify you as an individual such as your name, telephone number and email address. When you supply information to us, we are legally obliged by the Data Protection Act 1998 to ensure that the information you have provided is only used for the purpose for which it was requested, and to ensure that the data is kept securely.
When you become an organisational member of ICPCN we will ask you to share contact information through ICPCN’s International Directory which will be accessed through the ICPCN website. However we will never pass your details onto any other third party without gaining prior consent.
We may need to disclose information about you, if required to do so by law.
When you contact us we may collect personal data to enable us to send you publications, membership information, newsletters etc and to keep you informed about news and issues that are relevant to ICPCN’s work.
From time to time we may also use your personal data for marketing purposes to send you information about our membership, events, research, campaigns and appeals etc.
What information do we collect? How do we use it?
If you are taking out membership, attending events and conferences or buying our publications we need to take your name, e-mail address and delivery address. This allows us to process and fulfil your orders and to notify you of your order status. We also ask for your telephone number so that we can contact you if there is a problem with your order.
We may also ask you if you would like to share your organisation’s contact information for our information and networking services or website contact database. If you consent to this we will share the information both online and for our off-line information services.
When you contact us via our website, we ask for your e-mail address. We monitor customer traffic patterns and site usage to help us develop the design and layout of our website.

We will also collect contact information, with your consent, to share with online visitors and other ICPCN members to improve children’s palliative care networking.
When you place orders for publications, conferences, membership or make a donation on-line via our website, the secure server encrypts all information sent to and from your browser using the SSL standard. Furthermore, as required by the UK Data Protection Acts of 1984 and 1998, we follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information which you have given us, to prevent unauthorised access. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we are able to disclose sensitive information to you.
