Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. This privacy policy sets forth the information we may collect about you and how we use this information.

We do not require submission of any personally identifiable information from you to use this web site. However, in order to participate in certain services we offer, we may require you to provide information that personally identifies you. You are, of course, under no obligation to use these services. Such information is generally collected through the “Contact Us” section of the web site or when you donate to BCAN, but it may be collected in other ways as well.

By providing us with your personal information, you consent to us providing such information to (a) third parties that are working with us in connection with the applicable service you have requested or joined and (b) any of our partners listed on our website. We may also provide third parties with aggregated information. This is information about our users in an aggregate form where the identity of individual users cannot be determined. We will not sell, rent or otherwise share your personal information with any other third party unless you provide us with your consent.

We will not provide any third party with any medical information you provide to us. Medical Information includes information about diseases, treatments, and other similar information. We may, however, use this information – with your consent – to match you with a BCAN volunteer with a similar profile if you request that we do so. That individual will not be provided with your medical information, but will know that some aspect of your medical information created a match with their own information.

Certain non-personal information about your use of this website is collected and stored every time you interact with the site through “cookies.” Cookies are small computer files that this web site transfers to your computer’s hard drive and that allow us to know how often you visit this site and the activities you conduct while using this site, such as the date and time of your visit and the pages you viewed. BCAN uses this information to measure the number of visitors to specific sections of our site and to help us make our site more useful to visitors. We do not use cookies to track any personal information.

This web site contains links to other web sites that we do not control, and we are not responsible for the privacy policies of these other sites. This Privacy Policy applies solely to use of this web site and the information collected by us on this site. In addition, these links are provided as a browsing convenience and do not represent an endorsement by BCAN. You should consult the privacy policy and terms and conditions of those sites before you provide them with any information.

You can always contact us to request a copy of your personal information or to update or delete that information. If your personally identifiable information changes or if you no longer desire to receive any information from us, please email us at Upon receiving your request, we will modify or remove your information from our database, as applicable.
