We never collect personal information from you if you simply visit our site to read our content. When we do collect personal information from you, we generally require only the basic information needed for us to provide the service or product requested, for example to fulfill an online event registration or set up an e-mail updates (Perspectives) subscription.
Personal information you give us is kept confidential and protected using industry-standard technology. No transmission of data over the internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Although we make diligent efforts to safeguard your personal information once we receive it, we cannot warrant the security of information you transmit to us. Personal information is never sold or rented to third parties.
This web site may employ cookie technology. A "cookie" is a small piece of information that a web site asks your browser to store on your hard drive. This information helps the web site "recognize" you instantly. Cookies recall information you entered before so you don't have to reenter it again and help us determine whether you came to the site from a particular internet link. If you prefer, you can disable cookies on your browser settings. You may still use our web site, even with cookies disabled. In general, though, we will not attempt to place a cookie on your computer if you simply visit our site to read the content.
4. E-mail Addresses
We do not sell, rent, exchange, or otherwise share e-mail addresses, which we only collect when you fill out a form, with anyone outside The Kidney & Urology Foundation. If this specific policy should ever change, we will first post the policy changes on this page and then notify you by e-mail about such changes, giving you the opportunity to opt-out of any e-mail address sharing programs. However, within KUFA, we may use e-mail addresses collected from an assortment of web site transactions and interactions to send periodic communications about our work in general and about specific subjects which we believe may be of interest to you.
