Collection of Personally Identifiable Information
You may browse our site without giving us any personally identifiable information about yourself. However, if you request information or contact from us, you will be asked to provide personally identifiable information that may include: your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, and areas of interest. In addition, if you make a donation, you will be asked to provide personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, phone number, and email address.
Use of Personally Identifiable Information
Kids v Cancer will not sell or otherwise transfer or disclose your personally identifiable information to third parties except as may be required by federal, state or local law, or by exigent circumstances. We may use your profile information on an aggregate basis – without personal identifiers – to develop and display new features and content for the site and to perform statistical analyses of user behavior (on an aggregate basis) in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the site. In addition, we may aggregate data and disclose such information in a non-personally identifiable manner to advertisers and other third parties for marketing, research and promotional purposes. In these situations, we do not disclose any information that could be used to identify you personally. We may use certain service providers, companies and/or individuals to perform functions on our behalf, such as sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from donor lists, analyzing data, processing credit card payments and providing customer service, and therefore, may provide some of your personally identifiable information directly to them as necessary to complete their work on our behalf. These service providers, companies and individuals have access to the personally identifiable information as needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for any other purpose.
Kids v Cancer does not use “cookie” technology and/or Internet Protocol (“IP”) address tracking to collect or store user identification information.
We care about the security of your transactions and use third party technology – Click and Pledge — to process and safeguard your credit card information. You should be aware, however, that “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet; third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. You should not expect that your personally identifiable information will remain private.
As a matter of policy, we will not sell, share or rent information about you in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. However, we may be forced to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances if required to do so.
