LAST UPDATED: July 2018
By providing Personally Identifiable Information to the Organization, you acknowledge that we may use and disclose such information in accordance with this Policy. If you object or do not consent to our use and disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with this Policy, please do not provide Personally Identifiable Information to the Organization or use the Site. The Organization reserves the right to revise this policy without prior notice. You can determine when this Policy was last revised by referring to the “LAST UPDATED” legend at the top of this page. Any changes to our Policy will become effective upon our posting of the revised Policy on the Site. Your use of the Site following such changes means that you accept the revised Policy.
1. What Types of Information Does the Organization Collect From Me? The Organization gathers two basic types of information from you: “Personally Identifiable Information” (or “PII”) and “Non-Personally Identifiable Information” (or “Non-PII”). Personally Identifiable Information is information that identifies you as an individual. Non- Personally Identifiable Information is aggregated information, demographic information and any other information that does not reveal your specific identity.
a) Personally Identifiable Information. You do not have to provide PII to use the Site. However, in order for you to take advantage of particular opportunities provided through the Site (for example, to sign up for a newsletter, or to view certain areas of the Site), we may require that you furnish PII. We, and our service providers, may collect PII from you, such as your name, postal address, telephone number, e-mail address, Internet Protocol (IP) address, credit card number or other payment account number only when you voluntarily provide it to us.
IF YOU SUBMIT ANY PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION OR ANY HEALTH- RELATED INFORMATION RELATING TO ANYONE ELSE OTHER THAN YOURSELF TO THE ORGANIZATION, YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU HAVE PROVIDED ANY NECESSARY NOTICES AND OBTAINED ANY NECESSARY CONSENTS.
2. How Does the Organization Use Information Collected From Me?
♣ Personally Identifiable Information. We may use PII about you in the following ways:
a) Fulfillment of Requests. The Organization may use PII about you to respond to your requests such as to send newsletters to you or to process your donations. We may also use PII combined with health- related information about you and others to fulfill such requests, for example, if you tell us that you or a loved one have been diagnosed with a particular brain disorder.
b) Receipts and Thank You Notes to Donors. The Organization may use PII about you to send automatically generated receipts and thank you notes to you if you donate.
c) Administrative Communications. From time to time, and to the extent permitted by applicable law, we may use PII about you to send you important information regarding the Site, changes to our terms, conditions, and policies or other administrative information. Because this information may be important to your use of the Site, you may not opt-out of receiving such communications; provided, however, this provision concerning opting out does not apply to users from the European Union as users from the European Union may opt out or withdraw their consent to our use of their Personally Identifiable Information at any time as set forth by applicable law.
d) Other Communications. From time to time, and to the extent permitted by applicable law, the Organization and/or its affiliates (collectively, the “Affiliated Entities”) may use PII about you to inform you of products, programs and services that we believe may be of interest to you. If you would prefer that we do not send such messages to you, please see the “Opt-Out” section below (please note that the provisions in the Opt Out section apply only to the extent permitted by applicable law).
f) E-mail and Private Messages to Friends. We may provide functionality to permit you to send messages regarding Site-related content to a friend through the Site. If you wish to use this feature, you may be required to provide us with, and we may use, your friend’s e-mail address so that we can facilitate your sending of such message to your friend.
g) Internal Business Purposes. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we may also use PII about you for our internal business purposes, such as data analysis, audits and so forth.
3. Non-Personally Identifiable Information. Because Non-PII does not personally identify you, we may use such information for any purpose. In addition, we reserve the right to share such Non-PII (which does not personally identify you) with third parties, for any purpose. In some instances, we may combine Non-PII with PII (such as combining your name with your geographic location). If we do combine any Non- PII with PII, the combined information will be treated by us as PII hereunder as long as it is so combined.
4. How Is Personally Identifiable Information Disclosed?
a) Affiliated Entities. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we may share PII with the Affiliated Entities so that they may use such PII to send you information regarding products, programs and services. The Organization is the party responsible for the management of PII that is jointly used by the Organization and the Affiliated Entities. If you would prefer that we do not share your information with Affiliated Entities, please see the “Opt-Out” section below.
c) E-mails to Friends. Please note that any PII you provide in connection with sending messages regarding Site-related content to a friend through the Site, such as your name and your e-mail address, will, of course, be disclosed to your friend.
d) Information Posted by Visitors. The Organization may make available through the Site services (for example forums, among other services) to which you are able to post information and materials. Please note that any information you disclose through those services or otherwise on the Site becomes public information, and may be available to visitors to the Site and to the general public. We urge you to exercise discretion and caution when deciding to disclose PII about you, or any other information, on the Site. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY USE OF ANY PII, OR ANY OTHER INFORMATION, YOU VOLUNTARILY DISCLOSE THROUGH THE SITE.
e) Assignment. We reserve the right, to the extent permitted by applicable law, to transfer any and all information that we collect from Site users to an Affiliated Entity or a third party in the event of any reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of the Organization’s business, assets or stock (including, without limitation, in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceedings).
