These third party links are made available to you as a convenience. You agree to use these links at your own risk. Please be aware the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation is not responsible for the content of third party websites linked to the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation nor is SWCRF responsible for the privacy policy or practices of third party websites linked to the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation. Our Privacy Policy only applies to information we collect from you while you are at, and while you are actively in a session with, the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation.

Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation makes every effort to insure the secure collection and transmission of sensitive user information. Personally identifiable information is securely stored and is not publically accessible. When you submit sensitive information via the SWCRF website, your information is protected both online and offline. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure proper information use, SWCRF uses industry accepted data collection and encryption methodologies and instituted managerial procedures to secure the sensitive information we collect. One way you can verify this is to look for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page. While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only SWCRF employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service), and who have agreed to hold such information confidential and use such information only for the purposes, which that information was provided are granted access to personally identifiable information. Further, the computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

In spite of the safeguards we maintain, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network is 100% secure. Accordingly, SWCRF cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us and you must do so at your own risk. However, once we receive your information, SWCRF will use commercially reasonable efforts to protect its security.

Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation may release information if required to do so by law or by our sole discretion, such disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process or to protect the rights, property or personal safety of our website, SWCRF, our officers, directors, employees, other users and the public.

Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy without providing advance notice of our intent to make these changes.

Policy changes will be posted on the SWCRF website so users are always aware of the information we collect, how we use it and the circumstances, if any, of how we disclose it. All changes will be effective immediately upon the posting of the revised policy.
