Privacy Policy

At Myotubular Trust, we take the holding of personal data seriously.

This privacy policy explains how we may collect and use the information you give us. We hold data simply in order to communicate with you. We never pass your data onto third parties without express permission on a case by case basis. We use the information we do have to send newsletters updating you on fundraising and research news, or to invite you to events that may interest you as a patient, or as a supporter.


We collect personal information in a number of ways.

When you give it to us directly: when you request specific information; in order to sign up for one of our events; make a donation; purchase our wristbands, or when you communicate with us.

When you give us information indirectly: your information may be shared with us by independent event organisers, for example the London Marathon, or fundraising sites like BT MyDonate, JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving. It will also be shared with us by Charities Aid Foundation when you make an online donation via our website. These organisations will only share your data if you provide your consent to be contacted by Myotubular Trust. These organisations will have their own privacy policy and/or privacy statements, so please do ensure you understand this when providing your data.

We do not collect data from any other third party organisations, social media or messaging services, nor do we gather information from cookies on our website to tailor information or advertising to you.
