North Dakota Cancer Coalition PRIVACY POLICY

North Dakota Cancer Coalition (NDCC) values its visitors’ privacy. This privacy policy is effective July 1, 2014. It summarizes what information we might collect from a registered user or other visitor (“you”), and what we will and will not do with it.

Please note that this privacy policy does not govern the collection and use of information by companies that North Dakota Cancer Coalition does not control, nor by individuals not employed or managed by NDCC. If you visit a Web site that we mention or link to, be sure to review its privacy policy before providing the site with information.

Security Policy

Your payment and personal information is always safe. Our Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software is the industry standard and among the best software available today for secure commerce transactions. It encrypts all of your personal information including credit card number, name, and address, so that it cannot be read over the internet.

What we do with your personally identifiable information

It is always up to you whether to disclose personally identifiable information to us, although if you elect not to do so, we reserve the right not to register you as a user or provide you with any products or services. “Personally identifiable information” means information that can be used to identify you as an individual, such as, for example:

  • Your name, organization, email address, phone number, billing address, and shipping address
  • Credit card information (if applicable). This is applicable if payments are submitted through this website or contractors via event registrations with fees. 
  • Any account-preference information you provide us

If you do provide personally identifiable information to us, either directly or through a reseller or other business partner, we will:

  • not sell or rent it to a third party without your permission — although unless you opt out (see below), we may use your contact information to provide you with information we believe you need to know or may find useful, such as (for example) news about our services and products and modifications to the Terms of Service;
  • take commercially reasonable precautions to protect the information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction;
  • not use or disclose the information except:
    • as necessary to provide services or products you have ordered, such as (for example) by providing it to a carrier to deliver products you have ordered;
    • in other ways described in this privacy policy or to which you have otherwise consented;
    • in the aggregate with other information in such a way so that your identity cannot reasonably be determined (for example, statistical compilations);
    • as required by law, for example, in response to a subpoena or search warrant;
    • to outside auditors who have agreed to keep the information confidential;
    • to a successor organization in the event of a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, or other sale or disposition of all or a portion of NDCC’s assets. The successor organization’s use and disclosure of your personally-identifiable information will continue to be subject to this privacy policy unless (i) a court orders otherwise, for example a bankruptcy court; or (ii) the successor organization gives you notice that your personally-identifiable information will be subject to the successor organization’s own privacy policy, along with an opportunity for you to opt out (which may cause you not to be able to continue to use the North Dakota Cancer Coalition website.  If you submit personally-identifiable information after such a transfer, that information may be subject to the successor entity’s privacy policy;
    • as necessary to enforce the Terms of Service;
    • as necessary to protect the rights, safety, or property of NDCC, its users, or others; this may include (for example) exchanging information with other organizations for fraud protection and/or risk reduction.
