INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE

Personally Identifiable Information
During your interactions with the Site, such as when you register with the Site, JDRF may collect personally identifiable information, such as your name, date of birth, postal address, email address, and telephone number. We use this information to validate Site users and facilitate participation in various JDRF services as specified on the Site. If we need to contact you regarding the Site, our services, your account or your use of the Site, this information may be used to contact you. If you send us e-mail, we will retain your email and any applicable response in order to handle any follow-up questions you may have and to measure how effectively we address your concerns. JDRF retains such personally identifiable information only for as long as is necessary depending on the reason for your submission, and collects no more personally identifiable information than is reasonably necessary to provide you with the services for which such information is collected. We do not share this information with any third parties except as noted in the Child Privacy Policy Addendum where applicable.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information
To help us enhance and optimize users’ overall Site experience, we may collect non-personally identifiable information during your visit. Examples of non-personally-identifiable information may include your Internet access provider, your computer’s Internet protocol (IP) address, your user profile, your browser and operating system, the date and time of your visit, and data based on your use of the Site. JDRF collects non-personally-identifiable information in order to, among other things, provide you with or assist in the provision of information through the Site and to maintain the performance of the Site.

SECURITY

Encryption
JDRF takes extensive precautions to protect our users’ information, both online and offline.

If you submit sensitive personal information through the Site such as a date of birth or credit card information, we have implemented what we believe to be industry-standard robust encryption in order to help us keep your information secure and accurate.

Additional Safeguards
JDRF maintains physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect the confidentiality and security of any personally identifiable information that you disclose to JDRF. JDRF utilizes what JDRF believes to be industry best security measures to protect personally identifiable information under JDRF’s control, and JDRF limits access to your personally identifiable information within JDRF and JDRF’s affiliates to those employees who need to know such personally identifiable information to provide information, services and/or products to you. However, due to the nature of the Internet and computer systems, no transmission of data over the Internet is guaranteed to be completely secure, regardless of JDRF’s best intentions. As such, JDRF cannot ensure or warrant the security of any personally identifiable information you transmit to JDRF.
