Terms & Conditions
Last modified: 11 July 2019
Truth & Justice Limited is a private company that has set up cancerbuddy.com in order to offer support, information and understanding for individuals affected by cancer in any way. Our aim is to enable people affected by cancer (either having been diagnosed themselves or having a friend or family member who has been diagnosed) to connect with others, to share personal experiences and information online and by messaging through The Site. We hope information and interaction through our network may reduce feelings of anxiety, alienation and isolation often caused by a cancer diagnosis and that mentoring and chatting to each other through messaging or otherwise will help to improve day-to-day health and well-being.
For safety reasons we do not encourage users to meet other users in person unless all sensible precautions are taken to maintain your safety, such as but not limited to: meeting in public spaces, taking a friend, meeting in groups. Although it is a great shame to have to issue such warnings there are some cruel and predatory people around and we do not want any of those people to come into contact with you as a result of The Site. For the same reasons please do not divulge to other users information about yourself, which might enable such people to identify you or the address of your home or workplace.
Cancerbuddy is owned and operated by Truth & Justice Limited registered in England and Wales under company number 08433807. Its registered office address is: First Floor, 104-108 Oxford Street, London, United Kingdom, W1D 1LP.
