This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and is subject to the Myelin Repair Foundation Terms of Use. Your use of the Site and any personal information you provide on the Site are subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy and Myelin Repair Foundation’s Terms of Use.

The Information Myelin Repair Foundation Collects:

  • User-provided Information: You may provide to the Myelin Repair Foundation what is generally called “personally identifiable” information (such as your name, email address, postal mailing address, home/mobile telephone number, fax number, credit card number and billing information) when using the Site. For example, if you use the Site to contact the Myelin Repair Foundation, we will ask for your email address so that we can respond to you.
  • “Automatically Collected” Information: When you visit the Site, we may automatically record certain information from your web browser by using different types of technology, including “clear gifs” or “web beacons.” This “automatically collected” information may include Internet Protocol address (“IP Address”), web browser type, the web pages or sites that you visit just before or just after the Site, the pages you view on the Site, and the dates and times that you visit the Site.

The Way Myelin Repair Foundation Uses Information:

  • The Myelin Repair Foundation uses the information you provide or that we collect to operate, maintain, enhance, and provide all of the features and information found on the Site. We will use your email address, without further consent, for administrative purposes, for customer service purposes, to address intellectual property infringement, rights of privacy, or defamation issues. Personally identifiable information that we collect or that you provide allows us to facilitate and track donations made to us. In addition, personally identifiable information collected allows us to provide our registered users with event notices, our newsletter, other administrative communications, and information about programs, features, services, and opportunities that we believe our users may find of interest.
  • The Myelin Repair Foundation uses all of the information that we collect to understand and analyze the usage trends and preferences of our Users, to improve the way the Site works and looks, and to create new features and functionality.
  • The Myelin Repair Foundation may use “automatically collected” information to monitor aggregate site usage metrics such as total number of visitors and pages viewed.
  • The Myelin Repair Foundation will not use your email address or other personally identifiable information to send promotional messages unless you have opted in or otherwise requested that the Myelin Repair Foundation contact you about the Myelin Repair Foundation products and services or other information.

When Myelin Repair Foundation Discloses Information:

  • The Myelin Repair Foundation does not share your personally identifiable information with other organizations for their marketing or promotional uses without your express consent.

  • The Myelin Repair Foundation works with some authorized service providers to provide donation processing, website hosting and maintenance as well as other services for us. To the extent it is necessary for these service providers to complete their contractual obligations to the Myelin Repair Foundation; these third parties may have access to or process your personally identifiable information.
  • The Myelin Repair Foundation may also disclose User information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws or respond to a court order, judicial or other government subpoena, or warrant.
