Breast Cancer Recovery Privacy Policy

We value your privacy.

Breast Cancer Recovery is committed to protecting the privacy of our supporters, web visitors, clients and prospective clients. This privacy policy governs our collection and use of contact information collected from visitors to our website, through email and regular mail correspondence, telephone calls, and faxes, and reflects our policies toward privacy in respect to all other means of gathering and disseminating data.

Breast Cancer Recovery is committed to properly securing the Personal Information we collect. To help us accomplish this, we take the following steps:

We employ internal access controls to ensure that the only people who see your information are those with a need to do so to perform their official duties.

We train relevant personnel on our privacy and security measures.

We physically secure the areas where we hold hard copies of the information that we collect.

We regularly back up the information that we collect to insure against loss.

We use technical controls to secure the information that we collect online as appropriate, including but not limited to:

Secure Socket Layer (SSL), encryption, firewalls, and password protections.

We periodically test our security procedures to ensure personnel and technical compliance.

Like most organizations, Breast Cancer Recovery does maintain internal lists of contact information. Because your name, physical mail and e-mail addresses are confidential, we never share any list with outside parties. Only select Breast Cancer Recovery personnel and certain technical contractors are allowed access to the areas of the computer systems in which we store our lists. Lists are accessed only for the purpose of upgrading our computer systems or distributing professional communications that help us accomplish our mission as a nonprofit organization.


Any contact information or any correspondence sent by clients, donors or web visitors to Breast Cancer Recovery via regular mail, online through forms, through fax, email, or any other means is never sold to third parties under any circumstances.

Information posted about Breast Cancer Recovery donors on the website consists solely of a thank-you and list of organization names on the "Organization Donors" web page or a logo or listing in the left side bar sponsorship boxes. Businesses and organizations that donate to Breast Cancer Recovery may occasionally be thanked at special events or in media releases with the prior consent of the donor. If an organization or individual wishes to have their name removed from the website, they are welcome to contact Breast Cancer Recovery and their request will be met as soon as possible.
