Web Site Privacy Policy

We have written this statement to demonstrate our firm commitment to, and respect for, your privacy. We do not collect personally identifying information about you when you visit our site unless you choose to provide such information to us. Providing this information is strictly voluntary. This policy is your guide to how we will handle information we learn about you from your visit to the Leukemia Research Foundation (LRF) Web site.

We collect and store only the following information about you: the name of the domain from which you access the Internet (for example, aol.com, if you are connecting from an America Online account, or princeton.edu if you are connecting from Princeton University's domain), the date and time you access our site, and the Internet address of the Web site from which you linked to our site. We use the information we collect to measure the number of visitors to the different sections of our site, and to help us make our site more useful.

User Profile and Donations

If you complete the User Profile update form and share your personally identifying information, this information will be used only to provide you with more targeted content. We may use your contact information to send further information about our organization, or to contact you if necessary. You may always opt-out of receiving e-mails; see the "Opt Out" section below. We do not sell or share our mailing list or donor information, captured online or offline, with other organizations. We do not send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations.

Sending us an Email

You may send us personally identifying information, for example, in an electronic mail message containing a question or comment, or by filling out a Web form that provides us this information. We use personally identifying information from email primarily to respond to your requests. We may forward your email to other LRF employees who are better able to answer your questions. We may also use your email to contact you in the future about our programs that may be of interest.

We want to be very clear: We will not obtain personally identifying information about you when you visit our site unless you choose to provide such information to us. Providing such information is strictly voluntary. Except as might be required by law, we do not share any information we receive with any outside parties.

If you sign up for one of our email lists, we will only send you the information you have requested. We do not share your name or email address with any outside parties.

Our site provides users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us by clicking an opt-out link or sending us an e-mail with your intention. You may choose to receive only specific communications or none at all. You may also update your contact information previously provided to us through another online form. You cannot remove yourself from our database, but you can prevent unwanted communication.
