When can we share and disclose your information?


I am a grant applicant or grant holder

We may share information with others for the following reasons:

  • With peer reviewers: We subscribe to the Association of Medical Research Charities’ Principles of Peer Review, so research grant applications will be subject to peer review. This may include sending information outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) to international peer reviewers.
  • With third party service providers and agents: As set out in our policy on protecting the security of your data, we may engage external organisations to process information on our behalf. Additionally, for grant schemes for academic and clinical researchers, we will send information to Europe PMC and for statistical purposes to the Association of Medical Research Charities.     Data relating to Community grants will be passed to 360 Giving, an organisation which provides support for funders to publish their grants data openly.  This activity is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License, which means that the data are freely accessible to anyone to be used and shared as they wish.
  • To comply with laws: To comply with legal or regulatory requirements and to respond to lawful requests, court orders and legal process.
  • To enforce our rights, prevent fraud and for safety: To protect and defend the rights, property, or safety of us or third parties, including enforcing contracts or policies, or in connection with investigating and preventing fraud.
