We use the term “cookies” to refer to cookies and other similar technologies covered by the EU Directive on privacy in electronic communications.

You may be asked to accept cookies the first time you visit our Web site. We encourage you to accept the cookies our Web site uses, because it will help us improve your and others’ visits.

4. Use of the Website From Outside the United States

We do not represent or warrant that the Website, or any part thereof, is appropriate or available for use in any particular geographic location. If you choose to access our Website, you do so on your own initiative and at your own risk, and you are responsible for complying with all local laws, rules, and regulations applicable in your jurisdiction. Please note that the Website is hosted in the United States and is governed by United States law. If you are visiting the Website from outside the United States, please be aware that your information will be transferred to, stored, and processed in the United States where our servers are located and our central database is operated, and may be accessible by the courts, law enforcement and national security authorities in accordance with the laws of the United States.

5. How to protect your information

Transmission Errors or Unauthorized Acts: Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, World Pancreatic Cancer Day cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or any information provided online, and you do so at your own risk. World Pancreatic Cancer Day and its initial host, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, will not be liable for disclosures of your personal information due to errors in transmission or unauthorized acts of third parties. However, once we receive your transmission, we do our best to ensure its security on our systems by making reasonable efforts to protect the information.

Security: Our Web site will not collect financial or personal health data from users, as such SSL encryption is not used to protect data transmissions from your computer to our Web site. You are able to see when the SSL encryption is active either by the “padlock” icon at the top or bottom of your browser’s. In certain areas, password protection is used to protect your privacy and security. Any information provided on this Web site is treated with care and discretion. We will take a proactive approach to ensure the information is kept private and not misused.

6. Safeguarding information

We maintain – and we ask any third-party partners that store information on our behalf to maintain – reasonable administrative, technical, and physical safeguards for personal information collected through the Website. These safeguards are designed to protect the personal information we collect against theft; loss; misuse; or unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Our service providers are given the information they need to perform their designated functions, and we do not authorize them to use or disclose personal information for their own marketing or other purposes.

Our data is stored with our host servers at WP Engine in Texas. Our data controller is Jenny Isaacson with Pancreatic Cancer Action Network in California. She can be reached at
