Our Privacy Commitment

Protecting your privacy is important to the Leukaemia Foundation. This Notification Statement advises you how we collect and use personal or sensitive information about you, as well as how you can access the Leukaemia Foundation’s Privacy Policy.

Leukaemia Foundation of Australia Pty Ltd is referred to as ‘we’, ‘us’, ‘our’ or ‘Leukaemia Foundation’ in this statement.

Data Collection

We collect personal information from people who are connected to our operations and activities – including employees, donors, research study participants, recipients of our services, participants in advocacy campaigns or health promotion projects, health professionals, suppliers, volunteers and service providers.

Personal information means any information that can be used to personally identify you. This information may include your full name, gender, contact information, giving history or health information.

We may also collect disease specific information about you to ensure we offer you the right service/s and information.

We will however, limit the collection of sensitive information to the minimum we need to perform our services.

Where possible, we will collect your personal information directly from you. This may be in person; on the telephone; through the mail by responding to our correspondence; or online.

If we collect personal information about you from a third party (such as a health professional) and it is unclear that you have given your consent, we will take reasonable steps to contact you.

If you do not provide us with the personal information we reasonably request:

We may not be able to provide you with the products or services you’ve requested either to the same standard or at all;
We may not be able to provide you with information about products and services that you may want;
We may be unable to tailor the content of our website to your preferences and your experience of our website may not be as enjoyable or useful.

Use of Data

We collect personal information to allow us to conduct our everyday operations, including (but not limited to) fundraising, issuing receipts, marketing, support services, research, health promotion and volunteering.


There may be occasions where we need to disclose personal information to other organisations for us to do our business.

Examples of these are in our privacy policy and include mailing houses, couriers and payment processors.

These contractors and service providers are bound to handle and destroy your information in accordance with the Privacy Principles when operating in Australia.

Wherever we propose to disclose your personal information to a third party not outlined in our privacy policy, we will provide you with a collection notice which explains why. We do not sell your information to others.
