Like most website operators, CSOB collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. CSOB’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how the Society’s visitors use its website. From time to time, The Cancer Society of The Bahamas may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g. by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to the Cancer Society of The Bahamas website choose to interact with the Society in ways that require the gathering of personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that is gathered depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, those who engage in transactions with The Cancer Society of The Bahamas – by purchasing products or making online donations – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, The Cancer Society of The Bahamas collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The Cancer Society of The Bahamas. The Cancer Society of The Bahamas does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
The Cancer Society of The Bahamas may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, The Cancer Society of The Bahamas may monitor the most accessed page on the website or use spam screening software to help identify spam. The Cancer Society of The Bahamas may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, The Cancer Society of The Bahamas does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

If you send us a request (for example via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.
