Data Use & Collection

The data collected through our website helps us to keep our website up to date and ensure a streamlined experience for our users. We obtain information through our email list, donation page, surveys, and newsletter but not our therapeutic or group services unless you participate in these public activities. Information is not required but may include:

  • your name and contact details.

  • your bank or credit card details if you make a donation; we use third-party payment processors who specialize in the secure online capture and processing of credit/debit card transactions.


We may use your information for several different purposes including:

  • providing you with the services, products or information you requested;

  • seeking your views or comments on the services we provide;

  • notifying you of changes to our services;

  • sending you requested communications that may be of interest to you, including information about campaigns, fundraising appeals and activities, and promotions of goods and services; and

  • processing grants data or job applications.

This website and our registration website use cookies. 'Cookies' are small pieces of information sent by an organization to your computer and stored on your hard drive to allow a website to recognize you when you visit. This helps us improve and deliver a more personalized service to you. It is possible to disable cookies or opt-out changing your internet browser preferences. Like most websites, we automatically collect the following information:

Data Retention  
Operational, HIPPA and legal considerations determine the length of time your personal information is retained.

We will send you marketing and fundraising communications by email if you have provided consent. You may opt out of our marketing communications at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the end of our marketing emails, or by opting out in your registration. We will not use your personal information for marketing purposes if you have indicated that you do not wish to be contacted and will retain your details on a suppression list to help ensure that we do not continue to contact you.

Keeping your Information Safe
When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that appropriate technical and organizational controls are in place to protect it. Any sensitive information (such as credit or debit card details) is encrypted and protected. When you are on a secure page, a lock icon will appear on web browsers. 

Non-sensitive details (e.g., your email address) are normally transmitted over the Internet. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information via HTTP over SSL, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us. You are responsible for keeping any password you create safe.

Sharing, Third-party Services, and Vendors
We do not sell, rent, or share your information with third parties; however, we may disclose your information to third parties. This could include parties working on our behalf or business services and applications which provide technical support (ex. subcontractors, consultants, providers).
