Privacy Policy

Online Cancer takes the issue of safeguarding your privacy on-line very seriously. We have very strict policies and procedures designed to protect the privacy of our visitors. We will never share your personal information with any external organization without your consent. We do not sell any personal information about our visitors, including email addresses. Any personal information you do wish to provide is protected internally.

All personnel with access to personal information are aware of our policies. Any breach of policy would result in immediate dismissal.

If you feel that we are not abiding by our posted privacy policy, you should contact


A cookie is a piece of data temporarily stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site (who you are, your email address, or anything personal). The cookie helps the user to save time. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once, there by saving time while on our site. Web browsers can be set to reject cookies. If a user rejects the cookie they may still use our site, but may not be able to take advantage of certain features.

Some of our business partners use cookies on our site (for example, advertisers). However, we have no access to or control over these cookies.

Cookies help us evaluate your use of our site, such as what kind of information you want to see and what kind you will never read. Cookie technology allows Web sites to ask for your registration and preference questions only once. The next time you return to the Web site you will not necessarily need to “sign in” again. Remember that cookies are “non-executable” pieces of code; that is; they are incapable of doing anything to your hard drive.

Cookies are easy to delete from your hard drive; talk to your systems administrator or your Internet provider for detailed instructions.

Log Files

We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track users’ movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.


We will share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.

We use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes and our agreements with such providers restrict the use of this information.

From time to time we may partner with another party to provide specific services. When the user signs up for these services, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.

In addition, Online Cancer partners and third-party Internet sites and services accessible through Online Cancer, have separate privacy and data collection practices, independent of us. Online Cancer has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions.

You are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you’re online.

News Letter

If you decide to submit your email address to us in order to be added to our mailing list, you may be assured that you will not receive separate emails from other marketers as a result of joining our newsletter. You will receive no offers from our sites other than those made through the newsletter itself, which, of course, you have elected to receive. You may unsubscribe at any time through our unsubscribe page.

Surveys & Contests

From time to time Online Cancer requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Some of the information requested is of a personal nature but there is certainly no obligation to answer every question. In particular, submission of your email address is entirely optional. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site. Large population demographics may be compiled and published using this data but no individual information is ever disseminated.


This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that Online Cancer is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collect personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this web site.

Advertising Policy

Advertisements are the sole revenue source for Online Cancer, and this revenue is used to support our free-of-charge community. If Online Cancer finds that any advertising information is offensive in any way, whether through self -monitoring or through complaints from users, Online Cancer will immediately remove the advertisement from the site. Online Cancer does not endorse any of the advertised products/services. Moreover, Online Cancer makes every effort to avoid advertisements that do not comply with the site editorial policy.


If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to


Our users are given the opportunity to “opt-out” of having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for the information. For example, our order form will have an “opt-out” mechanism so users who buy a product from us, but don’t want any marketing material, can keep their e-mail address off our lists.

Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional materials from our partners may opt-out of receiving this communications by emailing us at

Users of our site are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether they should proceed with services that require an outside party, or not.

Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our Homepage so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we would notify users by way of an email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected. Protecting the privacy of our visitors is our topmost concern.
