Collection and Use
The Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. As described below, the Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association collects information from our users at several different points on our website.
The Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association will not sell, trade or share a donor’s personal information with anyone else, nor will it send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations, unless the donor has given the CMTA specific permission to do so.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track users’ movements, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that the Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association is not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.
If a user wishes to subscribe to our eNews Alerts, we ask for contact information such as name and email address. Users who no longer wish to receive our eNews Alerts, which may include information about promotional offers from our partners or the PDF version of our quarterly magazine, may opt-out of receiving these communications by using the unsubscribe link in the footer of the email or by emailing us at email@example.com.
Surveys & Contests
From time to time, our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary, and the user has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
Established members will occasionally receive information on products, services, special deals, and a magazine. Out of respect for the privacy of our users, we present the option to not receive these types of communications. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would prefer not to receive these types of communications.
Site and Service Updates
We also send the user site and service announcement updates. Members are not able to un-subscribe from service announcements, which contain important information about the service. We communicate with the user to provide requested services and in regards to issues relating to their account via email or phone.
Correction/Updating Personal Information
If a user’s personally identifiable information changes (such as his or her zip code), or if a user no longer desires to be a member, we will either correct, update or remove the user’s personal data or we will provide the user with the means to do so. Users can request correction/removal of information by emailing email@example.com.
