Privacy Policy & Terms

Privacy Policy

We at the Parkinson’s Foundation are committed to respecting the privacy of our website visitors. This page describes our privacy policy regarding the information we collect from you during your visit to our site, how we may use it, and how we will protect the information which you choose to provide us.

Personally Identifiable Information

The Parkinson’s Foundation does not require that you provide personally identifiable information in order to use our website. Personally identifiable information includes your name, address, zip code and telephone number, e-mail address and any other information which might be used to identify you individually. You may provide personally identifiable information to us while using the site in three situations: (1) while registering for Moving Day® (2) while making a donation, and (3) while communicating with the foundation. If you decide to support the activities of the Parkinson’s Foundation by making a tax deductible contribution with a credit card, we will collect the information needed to complete the transaction. If you contact the Parkinson’s Foundation, we will collect the information necessary to respond to you and also will receive any information you disclose in your message. In both these cases (i.e., making a donation or contacting the Parkinson’s Foundation), we will clearly disclose how we intend to use the information you provide on the page in which it is collected. In every case, we will take reasonable precautions to prevent your personal information from being intercepted by any third party using standard web techniques including encryption and firewalls to protect the data. In these cases, when the Parkinson’s Foundation receives personally identifiable information, we may use it for reasonable purposes. For example, we may use this information to contact you to provide you with information we believe may be of interest. It may also be used for compiling data and analyses to understand and serve your needs. Data is also compiled to evaluate how well we are doing at accomplishing our mission.

Personally identifiable information will never be sold, rented or exchanged outside of the Parkinson’s Foundation and its vendors bound by non-disclosure agreements unless the user is first notified and expressly consents to such transfer.

Use of Cookies

Like most websites, our website may store information on your computer in a small file called a “cookie.” These cookies never store personally identifiable information and do not compromise your privacy. Cookies are used exclusively to improve the user experience by providing continuity in your browsing the site. If you access the site via a public computer, be sure to click “log off” at the end of your session. The site will warn you not to use the “remember me” functionality (enabled by cookies) if you are at a public computer.

Other Terms and Conditions

Links To Other Sites

As a resource to our visitors, the Parkinson’s Foundation may provide links to other websites. For these links we try to carefully choose websites which we believe are useful and meet our high standards for the accuracy and utility of information. However, because website design and content can change so quickly we cannot guarantee the standards of every website to which we link. Likewise, we are not responsible for the content of any non-Parkinson’s Foundation site. We also cannot guarantee the privacy policies of these other sites and suggest you check the privacy policies of those sites directly.

Non-Parkinson’s Foundation Products and Resources

Any reference to a commercial or noncommercial product, process, service or company is not an endorsement or recommendation by the Parkinson’s Foundation.

The Parkinson’s Foundation does not endorse or recommend products, services or manufacturers. The Parkinson’s Foundation assumes no liability whatsoever for the use or contents of any product or service mentioned.

Communications from the Parkinson’s Foundation

If you wish to stop receiving any e-mail or other communications from the Parkinson’s Foundation or if you have submitted personally identifiable information through a Parkinson’s Foundation website and would like to have that information deleted, please notify us and it will be done promptly. Click on the “contact us” link in the page footer to contact the Parkinson’s Foundation.

Security

The Parkinson’s Foundation takes data security seriously. The Parkinson’s Foundation collects data that is covered by the medical privacy law HIPAA and is subjected to periodic audits by our banks and the Better Business Bureau. Information collected by the Parkinson’s Foundation is stored behind a firewall and protected using secure encryption technologies. While no security steps can offer 100 percent protection we utilize state-of-the-art, industry-standard protocols to prevent unauthorized access to the information we hold. We will limit access to personal information to those Parkinson’s Foundation personnel with a need to know it. We educate our staff about their duty to protect your privacy and provide training regarding the policy described herein.

Changes

The Parkinson’s Foundation reserves the right to make changes to this policy without notice. Any changes to this privacy policy will be reflected in changes on this page. Please check this privacy page periodically to review any changes that may have been made.
