How we collect your data

The IBTS collects data from the donor themselves at our donation clinics in the first instance, and also from emails donors might send us via our website, or when a donor calls our donor line. In some cases, such as when assessing eligibility to donate, we may also ask for information from the donors GP.

The IBTS may also receive information about a donor from a third party in some instances. In order to ensure product safety, the IBTS is obliged to take all information offered seriously. Where this occurs, the IBTS will contact the donor in question to discuss the information received so that they can confirm/correct the information as required and assess any implications of the information received.
