We like to keep in touch with our customers, supporters, and anybody interested in our resources and training, so that we can keep you informed of how we can help you, your small group and your church. We also occasionally send financial updates with an invitation to donate towards Cell UK.

What information do we collect and why?
If you place an order with us either by phone or online, you will be asked for your name, address, e-mail and phone number so that we can process your order efficiently. You will also be asked if you would like to join our mailing list to be kept informed of our products and services, in which case your details will be copied to our database. They will also remain securely on our website to enable you to easily place another order if required.
If you sign up online for our mailing list you will be asked for your name, e-mail address and what general area you live in, so that we can keep you informed about our products and services.
If you donate towards the work of Cell UK and are a UK taxpayer, we need all your contact details and a completed Gift Aid form if applicable so that we can claim the Gift Aid.
