Movember is committed to protecting your privacy and the confidentiality of any personal information which you provide to us.

This Privacy Policy describes Movember’s policies and procedures on the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information in connection with the services that Movember provides to you (Services). By accessing the Movember website, the mobile website or any of the Movember apps (together, Websites) and providing your information you indicate your acceptance of this Privacy Policy, as amended from time to time.

1. Collection of personal information:
You may provide personal information to Movember for a variety of reasons, including to receive information, to purchase products, to make a donation to a Mo Bro or Mo Sista, to provide your motivation or personal story to Movember, to receive information about or become involved in promotions or other initiatives undertaken by Movember. This personal information may include (without limitation) details such as your name, image, address, mobile number, e-mail address, employer or business, health information or the amount you have donated. If you purchase products or make a donation to a Mo Bro or Mo Sista you may provide Movember with credit card details and other information which will allow Movember to process the transaction. Movember may also request your preferences for receiving further information about the Movember campaign or outcomes from the funds raised.

The choice of how much information you provide to Movember is yours and of course if you want to use Movember's Services, make a donation, or otherwise participate in Movember programs and events, Movember will require certain information from you in order to provide the services or conduct the programs and events.

2. How does Movember use the Personal Information?
The personal information you provide to Movember through our Websites may be used by Movember for the following purposes: If you choose to provide your personal details to Movember you agree that your personal information may be displayed or included as set out above. You also agree that your personal details may accordingly be identified, recovered and displayed by internet search engines.  In certain circumstances we may give you the option to limit the public view of your information, for example:
Please be aware that if you change your Mo Space from public to a limited public view, your Mo Space may have already been indexed by a search engine and may therefore appear in searches conducted on that search engine until it re-indexes your Mo Space as limited public view. In some cases the search engines do not re-index their searches so your Mo Space may still appear on those search engines after you have changed your profile from public to limited public view. If you have a concern that a particular search engine hasn’t removed your Mo Space from their search results please contact us at and we will contact the search engine directly to request deletion of the reference to your Mo Space in their search results.
3. Communication preferences:
Where you have agreed to receive Movember emails, Movember may use your personal information to send you emails (including marketing emails) about the Movember campaign and the outcomes achieved with the funds raised.  If you are a registered Mo Bro or Mo Sista, Movember will automatically send you an email whenever there is activity on your Mo Space or updates to your donations.  You will be provided with an opportunity in each email communication to decline to receive any further communications from Movember.  In addition, you can change your email marketing preferences in the settings in the “Edit My Details” section on your Mo Space.

4. Security of your information:
Movember takes reasonable steps to ensure the security of all information it collects, including that the information is protected from misuse and loss and from unauthorized access, modification or disclosure. For example, your personal information is maintained in a secure environment, which can be accessed only by authorized personnel. However, no data transmission over the internet or information stored on servers accessible through the internet can be guaranteed to be fully secure.  Note that Movember does not store credit card information.

5. Disclosure of Personal Information:
Personal information collected by Movember may be shared with any company within the Movember group of companies.

We may disclose your personal information to our suppliers or other external third parties for analytics and data analysis, for outsourcing some of the functions and services relating to the purposes for which your personal information may be processed by Movember and otherwise to enhance our Services. When we contract external services providers, we may provide them with your personal information, but only to the extent required for them to fulfil that contract, or where you would reasonably expect Movember to disclose it to a third party for a particular purpose.

Regardless of where in the world you reside, Movember may transfer your data outside of your own country, including to Australia and the United States, for processing, including analytics, and storage.  This may result in your data being transferred to a country which has a lower standard of data protection than the country in which you reside.  Wherever your data is transferred, it may be accessed by the courts, regulatory bodies, and law enforcement and national security authorities, according to the laws in the relevant jurisdiction.

We may disclose your personal information to social media platforms including, without limitation, Facebook so that the social media platforms may send you advertisements about future Movember events and initiatives and for analytics purposes.

If we send your details to Facebook they will be hashed before they are sent, and Facebook only briefly uses the data for matching purposes then deletes it:  

If you wish to opt out of having your details provided to Facebook or other social media platforms, please contact us on

We will not sell your personal information to other parties.

Movember will not use or disclose your personal information except in accordance with this Privacy Policy unless you have consented to the use or disclosure, or where disclosure is necessary to prevent injury to life or health, to investigate any suspected unlawful activity or where the use or disclosure is required or authorized by law.
