To ensure that your Personal Data receives an adequate level of protection, we have put in place appropriate procedures with the service providers we share your Personal Data with to ensure that your Personal Data is treated by those service providers in a way that is consistent with and which respects the applicable laws on data security and privacy.
For example, we use third-party processors for certain communications, donation tracking, and other processing as necessary for the Services.
For individuals in Switzerland, the European Union (EU), and other countries outside the United States, please note that we operate internationally and transfer information to the United States for the purposes described in this policy. The United States may have privacy and data protection laws that differ from, and are potentially less protective than, the laws of your country. Your Personal Data can be subject to access requests from governments, courts, or law enforcement in the United States according to the laws of the United States.
Some internet browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” feature that signals to websites you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. Given that there is not a uniform way that browsers communicate the “Do Not Track” signal, the Site does not currently interpret, respond to or alter its practices when it receives “Do Not Track” signals.
Depending on your location (and reflecting applicable law), you may have been asked to indicate your preferences, provide us with your consent regarding the receipt of such information from us, and indicate how you would like to receive it. Wherever you are located, we will send you marketing communications based on any preferences you may have expressed.
We only want to send you information in which you are interested. If you do not want to receive these communications or would like to understand more about other unsubscribe options, please contact us as set out in the “How to Contact Us” section below.
For email communications, you can opt-out and/or manage your preferences by clicking on the unsubscribe link provided at the bottom of any email you receive from us. You also may submit a request to us at [email protected]. If we call you with information that you do not want to receive, you can advise us of this during the telephone call.
We maintain commercially reasonable security measures to protect the Personal Data we collect and store from loss, misuse, destruction, or unauthorized access. However, no security measure or modality of data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. Although we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Data, we cannot guarantee absolute security.
Users of the Service are responsible for maintaining the security of any password, user ID, or other form of authentication involved in obtaining access to password protected or secure areas of the Service. In order to protect you and your information, we may suspend your use of any of the Service, without notice, pending an investigation, if any breach of security is suspected.

One Cancer Place is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and may be exempt from the privacy legislation in your state. However, depending on the state in which you reside, you may have certain privacy rights regarding your personal data. Privacy rights are provided in the “Your Choices and Rights – Rest of the World” section below.
California Shine the Light Law
We do not disclose Personal Data (referred to as “personal information” under certain state laws, including California and Nevada) obtained through our Site or Services to third-parties for their direct marketing purposes. Accordingly, we have no obligations under California Civil Code § 1798.83.
Notice to Nevada Residents
Nevada law allows Nevada residents to opt-out of the sale of certain types of Personal Data. Subject to a number of exceptions, Nevada law defines “sale” to mean the exchange of certain types of Personal Data for monetary consideration to another person. We do not currently sell Personal Data as defined in the Nevada law. However, if you are a Nevada resident, you still may submit a verified request to opt-out of sales and we will record your instructions and incorporate them in the future if our policy changes. Opt-out requests may be sent to [email protected].
If you are in a country in the European Economic Area (EEA) or in the United Kingdom, you are entitled to the following explanation of the legal bases we rely on to process your Personal Data and a description of your privacy rights. Please note that depending on where you reside, your relationship with One Cancer Place, and/or the way in which One Cancer Place is regulated in your country of residence, you may not have opportunity to avail yourself of all the privacy rights listed here.
Processing of Special Categories of Personal Data
We may process certain special categories of personal data in connection with our legitimate activities as a not-for-profit organization. For example, the purpose of the services is to provide resources to cancer patients. As such, you may provide information related to your medical diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment plans, which may be considered as part of a special category under GDPR or similar laws. This information is provided on a voluntary basis, and you may revoke your consent to process at any time, in addition to exercising other rights.
Legal Bases for Processing Your Personal Data
The legal basis for collecting and using the Personal Data described above will depend on the Personal Data concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.
We may process your Personal Data based on your consent such as when you create an account or when you ask us to send certain kinds of marketing communications. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time without affecting the lawfulness of the processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
Our Legitimate Interests
We may process your Personal Data if doing so is necessary for our legitimate interests and your rights as an individual do not override those legitimate interests. For example, when we process your Personal Data to carry out fraud prevention activities and activities to increase network and information security, to market directly to you, to expand our business activities and to improve our services and the content and functionality of our Site.
To Perform a Contract
We may process your Personal Data to administer and fulfill contractual obligations to you.
To Enable Us to Comply with a Legal Obligation
We may process your Personal Data to comply with legal obligations to which we are subject. This may include any requirement to produce audited accounts and to comply with legal process.

We will retain information in accordance with the “How Long Is Your Personal Data Kept” section below.
If you do exercise a valid right to have your Personal Data deleted, please keep in mind that deletion by third parties to whom the information has been provided might not be immediate and that the deleted information may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period (but will not be available to others).
