Privacy Policy

Updated as of June 30, 2020

We are committed to the care and improvement of human life. Part of that commitment includes protecting your Personal Information (defined below). We maintain information confidentiality and comply with applicable regulatory requirements.

This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) covers our online privacy practices with respect to use and/or disclosure of information we may collect from you when you access or use our website (“Website”) and any other websites or applications we may provide that link to this Privacy Policy (collectively, our “Services”). The Services are provided by the Website owner identified on the Website homepage (“we,” “us,” or “our”). This Privacy Policy does not apply to information collected through other means, such as by telephone or in person or by other third parties that are not part of our Services. Please review our privacy practices and contact us at privacy@bandagainstcancer.com if you have questions.

INFORMATION COLLECTED THROUGH THE WEBSITE

Our Website may include pages that permit you the opportunity to provide us with Personal Information about yourself. As used in this Privacy Policy, “Personal Information” means any information that may be used, either alone or in combination with other information, to personally identify an individual as defined by applicable state laws as noted below.

We collect certain information, including Personal Information, from and about our Website users in three ways:

  • directly from you;
  • directly from our web server logs; or
  • cookies and web beacons.

Information Provided by You

We and our service providers collect Personal Information through online forms to provide certain features of the Services to you. If you do not provide the information required to submit the forms, we may not be able to provide you with related features and services.

In some cases, you may have the opportunity to enter into our secure forms any content that you choose. You are responsible for such content and we reserve the right to use such content as part of our Services.

WEB SERVER LOGS

When you access or use our Services, we may track information to administer our Services and analyze its usage. Examples of information we may track include, without limitation:

  • Your Internet protocol address;
  • The kind of browser or computer you use;
  • Number of links you click within our Services;
  • State or country from which you accessed our Services;
  • Date and time of your visit;
  • Name of your Internet service provider;
  • Third party websites you linked to from our Services; and
  • Pages or information you viewed on our Services.

We use this information to analyze and improve our Services, and monitor traffic and usage patterns for information security purposes and to help make our Services more useful.

COOKIES AND WEB BEACONS

A “cookie” is a small text file that may be transferred to your computer’s hard drive to personalize our services for you and collect information regarding usage of our Services. Each computer is assigned a different cookie that contains a random, unique identifier. Our Services may use two different types of cookies: a “session” cookie, which is required to track a user session, for example, and which expires shortly after the session ends, and a “persistent” cookie, used to track unique visits. So that users are not counted twice, this cookie can “persist” anywhere from six months to two years.

Your browser software can be set to warn you of cookies or reject all cookies. Most browsers offer instructions on how to reset the browser to reject cookies in the “Help” section of the toolbar. If you reject our cookie, this may disable some of the functionality of our Services and you may not be able to use certain services.

Cookies, to the best of our knowledge, cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a website, a cookie helps the website to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases website navigation by providing and saving your preferences and login information as well as providing personalized functionality.

We use Google Analytics on our Site to help us analyze the traffic on our Site. For more information on Google Analytics’ processing of Personal Information, please see http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/.” By using a browser plugin provided by Google, you can opt out of Google Analytics.

Some of the features of our Services (such as social media widgets that allow you to share content) may use cookies or other methods to gather information regarding your use of the Services, and may combine the information in these cookies with any of Personal Information about you that they may have. The use of such information by a third party depends on the privacy policy of that third party.

A “web beacon,” “clear GIF,” “web bug,” or “pixel tag” is a tiny graphic file with a unique identifier that is similar in function to a cookie, but would allow us to count the number of users that have visited certain pages or screens of our websites, and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns. When used in HTML-formatted email messages, web beacons can tell the sender whether and when the email has been opened. In contrast to cookies, which may be stored on your computer’s hard drive, web beacons are typically embedded invisibly on pages or screens. We may use web beacons in providing the Services.

We reserve the right to share aggregated site statistics monitored by cookies and web beacons with our affiliates and partner companies. We treat the information of everyone who comes to our Services in accordance with this Privacy Policy and their Do Not Track setting.

GEOLOCATION DATA

We do not collect precise information (e.g., GPS data; latitude and longitude) concerning the location from which you access the Services, but we collect information on your region or postal code to help us gather information useful for improving the relevance of our content and securing our Services.

THIRD PARTY ADVERTISING

We may allow third party advertising companies to serve ads when you access or use our Services. These companies use non-personally identifiable information regarding your access and use of our Services and other websites, such as pages viewed, date and time of your visit, and number of times you have viewed an ad (but not your name, address, or other personal information), to serve ads to you on our Services and other websites that may be of interest to you. In the course of serving advertisements to our Services, our third party advertiser may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser. In addition, we or other third party advertiser, may use web beacons to help manage our online advertising. This allows us or a third party advertiser to learn which banner ads bring users to our Services.

THE PURPOSES FOR WHICH WE USE PERSONAL INFORMATION

If you submit or we collect Personal Information through our Services, then such Personal Information may be used in the following ways: (i) to provide, analyze, administer, and improve our Services; (ii) to contact you in connection with our events or offerings that you may have registered for; (iii) to send you surveys; (iv) to protect our rights or our property and to ensure the technical functionality and security of our Services; and (v) as required to meet our legal and regulatory obligations.

If you are a visitor from the European Economic Area, our legal basis for collecting and using the information described in this Privacy Policy will depend on the information concerned and the context in which we collect it. We collect information from you:

  • where we need it to perform our contract with you (i.e., our Terms);
  • where the processing is in our legitimate interests such as securing and improving our Services, for example (provided that these aren’t overridden by your interests or rights); or
  • if we otherwise have your consent.

If you have questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your information, please contact us using the contact details provided under the “Contact Us” section below or email us at privacy@bandagainstcancer.com.

HOW WE DISCLOSE PERSONAL INFORMATION

We do not sell, lease, rent or otherwise disclose the Personal Information collected from our Site to third parties unless otherwise stated below or with your consent.

  • Our Third Party Providers. We transfer Personal Information to third party service providers to perform tasks on our behalf and to assist us in providing our Services. For example, we may use third party service providers for security, website analytics, and payment processing. We use commercially reasonable efforts to only engage or interact with third party service providers and partners that post a privacy policy governing their processing of Personal Information, and require our service providers to maintain confidentiality and comply with applicable laws in the processing of Personal Information. Currently we use the following third party service providers: 

Google Analytics. We use Google Analytics, an analytics service, along with our own Service, to help us analyze the traffic on our Services. Please see “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps.”

Mailchimp.  We use Mailchimp as a repository of the data collected and to send emails based on that data.

  • In the Event of Merger, Sale, Divestitures or Change of Control. We may transfer or assign Personal Information to a third party entity that acquires or is merged with us as part of a merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control.
  • Other Disclosures. We may disclose Personal Information about you if we have a good faith belief that disclosure of such information is helpful or reasonably necessary to: (i) comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request; (ii) enforce our terms of use, including investigations of potential violations thereof; (iii) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud or security issues; or (iv) protect against harm to our or third parties’ rights, property or safety.

INFORMATION SECURITY

No website can guarantee security, but we maintain industry accepted physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information collected via our Services in compliance with applicable law. Please see the Terms of Use available via the Website homepage (“Terms”) for more specific information about information security and your responsibilities.

What Can I Do to Protect My Privacy?

Where you use a Service that is secured with a username and password, you are also responsible for taking steps to protect the privacy of Personal Information about you. In order to protect your privacy, you should:

  • Never share your username or password;
  • Always sign out when you are finished using the website;
  • Use only secure web browsers;
  • Employ common anti-virus and anti-malware tools on your system to keep it safe;
  • Use a strong password with a combination of letters and numbers;
  • Change your password often; and
  • Notify us immediately if you feel your login and/or password have been compromised at privacy@bandagainstcancer.com.

Retention of Information

We will retain Personal Information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it has been collected as described in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required by law (e.g., laws mandating retention of medical records for a certain period of time).

Where practical, we dispose of certain categories of information, including Personal Information, on a regular schedule. For example, we dispose of web server logs after 90 days, information submitted through secure forms after 6 months, and information collected for analytics purposes on the Website (e.g., information on pages visited on the Website) after 2 years.

Third Party Websites and Payments

If you link from this website to another third party website, you may decide to disclose personal information at that website. Please be aware that in contacting that website, or in providing information on that website, that party may obtain personal information about you. This Privacy Policy does not apply when you leave this website and go to another website. We encourage you to be aware when you leave this website and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information.

USER COMMUNICATIONS

  • Email communications that you send to us via the email links on our Services may be shared with a customer service representative, employee, medical expert or agent that is most able to address your inquiry. We make reasonable efforts to respond in a timely fashion once communications are received. Once we have responded to your communication, it is discarded or archived, depending on the nature of the inquiry and all applicable laws, rules and regulations.
  • The email functionality on our Services does not provide a completely secure and confidential means of communication. It is possible that your email communication may be accessed or viewed by another Internet user while in transit to us. If you wish to keep your communication private, do not use our email.
