When you use our site, be aware that much of the information you provide will be visible to the public. Therefore, you should be careful about the type and extent of personal information that you provide. For example, it is not recommended that you provide your true name, address, phone number, or any other information that unscrupulous persons can use to your detriment.
Our Privacy Pledge to you is that:
We will not collect any personal information from you that you do not volunteer and we will not use any information you volunteer unless you give us permission to do so.
We may collect tracking information such as your browser type, the type of operating system you use, the domain name of your Internet service provider, and pages visited on the site. None of this information identifies you personally. We collect it for aggregate reporting on site activity. For example, we may want to know how long the average user spends on the Site, or which pages get the most attention. We use this information to make the site more useful to you. We may also use third-party services to assist us with this non-personal tracking.
We use "cookies" to store and sometimes to track user information. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us e-mail address or other personally identifiable information unless you choose to provide this information to us. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. A cookie contains a unique number that allows our site to recognize your computer. The help function on most browsers contains information on how to set your browser to notify you before accepting cookies or to disable cookies entirely.
We also use "pixel tags" or "web beacons" on certain pages of our web site. These are tiny graphic images that enable us to record anonymous data about visits. This anonymous information is also known as "clickstream data." We use this data to analyze trends and to improve your online experience. No personal data is collected through the use of pixel tags on our site.
We may also use third-party software to track page views and clicks on banners (hyperlinked to sponsor's sites). This is also aggregate information and does not identify you personally.
Finally, we may send you e-mails that provide news or other updates related to your use of MyCancerPlace.com or Cancer Monthly. You will always have an opportunity to opt-out of any future mailing by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the words “opt out of future mailings.”
