We collect and use the following information:
- Information that you provide by filling in forms on our Website or participating online in our campaigns. This includes information provided at the time of registering as a member, signing petitions, sending messages through our site to campaign targets or others, or otherwise filling out forms on the instituteofpalliativemedicine.org website. We may also ask you for information when you report a problem with our Website.
- Records and copies of your correspondence (including e-mail addresses), if you contact us.
- Your responses to surveys that we might ask you to complete for research purposes or to help direct our campaigns and activities, although you do not have to respond to them.
- Details of transactions you carry out through our Website if you are one of our members who generously support Institute of Palliative Medicine financially and the work we do together.
- Certain information about usage of the instituteofpalliativemedicine.org site, described below in the section on Data Tracking.
- Where from the world you hail and whether you tell others about Institute of Palliative Medicine campaigns.
We do not share the information you’ve given us with unaffiliated groups without your explicit permission. We may share some of your personal information with certain affiliated groups. For example: Affiliated Third Parties and contractors – such as our database administrators – for the sole purpose of helping us do our work. These groups do not share your personal information or use it for any purpose other than as instructed by us.
Third Party Administrators, such as organizations we engage to facilitate large distribution of messages. The content of these emails will be from instituteofpalliativemedicine.org and these third parties do not have direct access to your personally identifiable information.
In addition, with your explicit permission, we pass along certain of your information to the following groups (as is standard practice):
- World leaders, news publications and other targets when you choose to use our email tool to send them messages.
- World leaders, news publications, and the general public when you sign petitions or complete surveys.
- Further information about how we use personal information in connection with particular types of campaigns is discussed below.
Petitions and Surveys
For petitions and surveys you've signed or completed, we treat your name, city, state, and comments as public information—for example, we may provide compilations of petitions, with your comments, to world leaders and other targets, or to the press. We will not make your street address publicly available, but we may transmit it to the designated target as part of a petition. This is a standard industry practice in such situations. In no such case will we disclose your email address or phone number, without your permission. We may also make your comments, along with your first name, city and state available to the press and public online. When you do give permission for us to share your email address as part of a campaign, instituteofpalliativemedicine.org is not responsible for the content or use of your email address by campaign targets.
Sending Emails Via instituteofpalliativemedicine.org
In certain cases, we enable you to send individual e-mails to world leaders or other targets as well as Letters-to-the-Editor to various news publications, through our website. These messages are sent in your name, with your e-mail address as the return address and your full name and contact information is provided as part of the submission. These messages will only be sent out under your name as you approve them on an individual basis using our email tool. You are solely responsible for the specific message(s) you send using our email tool. Institute of Palliative Medicine takes no responsibility for the content or use of your email address by campaign targets.
If you choose to make a donation to instituteofpalliativemedicine.org, your credit card information will be used only for this transaction through our secure online payment system. instituteofpalliativemedicine.org does not retain credit card information.
with the subject line "UNSUBSCRIBE PHONE NUMBER". Please allow 8-10 business days for your information to be removed.
Institute of Palliative Medicine enables its members to develop and run their own campaigns on our member-initiated petition site. instituteofpalliativemedicine.org members run these campaigns under their own name and send them to friends, family and others to build a movement. If these petitions demonstrate the ability to generate significant support, instituteofpalliativemedicine.org may send the petition on behalf of the whole instituteofpalliativemedicine.org community to larger segments of our membership. When doing so, instituteofpalliativemedicine.org may use the information the member who initiated the campaign has provided and may edit or modify it within our sole discretion. While members will bear primary responsibility for delivering their petitions to the petition targets, instituteofpalliativemedicine.org also may choose to deliver member-initiated petitions to their targets in some instances.
When people sign on to support instituteofpalliativemedicine.org members’ campaigns, instituteofpalliativemedicine.org collects the information those signers provide in order to send those new participants information about future campaigns and otherwise to further the instituteofpalliativemedicine.org mission. Those new participants can always choose to remain instituteofpalliativemedicine.org members or to decline. instituteofpalliativemedicine.org may also provide the emails of people who sign a member-initiated campaign to the member who initiated the campaign so that member can continue that campaign’s efforts. Whenever we do this, we will require that the member who initiated the campaign give signers an ability to opt-out of further emails from that member as a condition to receiving the emails of people who have signed that campaign. When members initiate their own campaigns, instituteofpalliativemedicine.org may send thank you notes and other correspondence to people who participate in those campaigns on behalf of the instituteofpalliativemedicine.org member who initiated the campaign or on behalf of instituteofpalliativemedicine.org.
When you give instituteofpalliativemedicine.org personal information, we take steps to ensure that your information is treated securely. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, instituteofpalliativemedicine.org cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our Website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
Under circumstances where we determine that members may be misusing our systems for malicious purposes (for example, using the numbers we provide to make harassing phone calls), such activities may be reported to law enforcement agencies. In such cases, instituteofpalliativemedicine.org may release personally identifiable information, including name and address, to those agencies.
instituteofpalliativemedicine.org does not solicit nor knowingly collect personally identifying information from children. Visitors who are under 13 years of age should ask their parent or legal guardian for assistance when using the Site and should not submit any personally identifying information to the Site. For example, visitors under 13 years of age should not make donations, provide their name, address, contact information, or other information, or use the instituteofpalliativemedicine.org email tool.
URLs contained in emails may contain an ID that enables us to correctly identify the person who takes an action using a web page. We use these URLs to simplify the process of signing petitions and filling out surveys. We may occasionally present a shortened URL that references a longer URL which contains an id—we do this to simplify the display, to prevent links from becoming broken when copied, and to ensure compatibility with email programs which do not handle long URLs. When a shortened URL is displayed in an email, you will see the full URL in the browser's address bar when you access the page.
