The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for this website and the email support lists: TC-NET and TC-SUPPORTERS.

Your IP Address
No effort is made to identify individuals without their knowledge. We do, however, collect aggregate information and site statistics for the purpose of improving the site. We do not link any of this information to anything personally identifiable. A user's session on the TCRC may be tracked, but the user will remain anonymous. Domain names are used to collect broad demographic information.

Cookies
Cookies are not used by any part of the TCRC. However, it is possible that one of the services the TCRC uses to track users may use cookies to identify repeat users. This information is used solely for statistical purposes and is not used to identify individuals. It is also possible that our host, The Association of Cancer Online Resources, may use cookies to store your username and password if you use their web interface to view the TC-NET or TC-SUPPORTERS archives.

Personal or Medical Information
The TCRC itself does not require any member or user information. However, any email or correspondence sent to the TCRC may be stored. Emails sent to the TCRC typically include some medical background and questions, and storing this information makes it easier to correspond. In a very few cases involving some of the less common conditions, we may contact someone months or years down to road to ask for assistance. In some cases we receive questions that cannot be answered without outside assistance. The TCRC will not disclose any personally identifiable information about you when asking for assistance without first asking permission. Identifiable medical or other information is never sold or shared with anyone.

Information sent to TC-NET or TC-SUPPORTERS is public domain, archived and is accessible to anyone subscribed. ACOR's Privacy Policy notes that "Our success is based on the wide availability of our electronic mailing lists. Such availability means that we cannot guarantee who is subscribed and what unforeseen use can be made. We are constantly monitoring the use and possible abuse of our resources but we are aware that unknown entities could archive the lists without our permission. The only SURE way to protect one's privacy is to NEVER write to the lists. Each subscriber should weigh the potential benefits/danger of her/his participation." The list of subscribers for TC-NET and TC-SUPPORTERS are available only to the list administrators. These lists are private and have never been and will never be sold or used by anyone outside the TCRC.
