PRIVACY POLICY

This site is run and operated by its own members. We therefore treat your information as carefully as we would want our own treated.

We do not sell any names or email addresses. We are hosted on a "Cloud" operated by vBulletin, and rely on their technical expertise to protect the minimal information that we require. Please note that this is a publicly viewable forum, and as such, any information you post about yourself will be available to the public at large.

Information Gathered

The information we gather falls into two categories: (1) information that you voluntarily supply (such as your email address and user ID), and (2) usage patterns while using the site. Our third party provider vBulletin may also gather this sort of information on our behalf. When you visit the site the server will automatically collect limited information about your computer configuration, including but not limited to: browser type, operating system, any outside website that may have referred you, and your IP address. We use cookies to allow smooth operation throughout our website.

Disclosure Of Information

When you register an account on Prostate-Cancer-Forums.net we'll ask for your preferred user ID, email address and a password. With the exception of that ID, this information is completely private and will not be shared with others. You may optionally add additional details about yourself including your date of birth, contact information, location, interests, occupation, and information about your cancer journey. Additionally, you may add a signature to detail to whatever degree you elect significant aspects of your diagnosis and treatment. This signature will be added to your forum posts.

Our cloud instance is run by a third party with access to your personal information. We have no reason to believe that they would be monitoring or looking at such information, as their job is simply to keep our cloud instance running efficiently.

Statistical Details

Much of the information we collect is in the form of statistics, such as the amount of traffic that visits various pages within our site and the habits and preferences of our members.

Advertisers

We do not use advertisements on our website.

Other Disclosures

We will release information about our visitors when release is appropriate to comply with the law or to protect the rights or safety of visitors or the public.

Opting Out

If you register with us you will have the opportunity to review, update or delete the information you have provided at any time.

Storage Of Information

All information gathered on our site is stored within a database operated by a third party, vBulletin, on our behalf.

Changes To This Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to make minor changes to our privacy policy without announcement. Significant changes will be announced.
