This Policy applies only to information collected on or through the Services. It does not apply to information collected or obtained through any other means (including, without limitation, information collected through other St. Jude websites or mobile applications, offline, in person, or from third parties outside the Services).
We may collect and store information about you in various ways. For example, we may collect information that you provide to us, information that we automatically collect through your use of the Services, and information from publicly-available sources or non-affiliated third parties.
When you use the Services, you may be invited to provide or upload information. For example, St. Jude may collect the following illustrative (but not exhaustive) types of information when you use the Services:
In addition to the information you provide to us directly, we may automatically collect information about your use of the Services as follows:
We may receive information about you from publicly and commercially available sources, as permitted by law, which we may combine with other information we receive from or about you.
When you “like” or “follow” us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or other social media sites, we may collect some information from you including your name, e-mail address, and any comments or content you post relevant to us.
We also may use Adobe Flash technology (including Flash Local Shared Objects ("Flash LSOs")) and other technologies to, among other things, collect and store information about your use of the Services. If you do not want Flash LSOs stored on your computer, you may be permitted to adjust the settings of your Flash player to block Flash LSO storage using the tools contained in the website storage settings panel for the web browser(s) you use to access the Services. You can also control Flash LSOs by going to the Adobe Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions (which may include instructions that explain, for example, how to delete existing Flash LSOs (referred to "information" on the Macromedia site), how to prevent Flash LSOs from being placed on your computer without your being asked, and (for Flash Player 8 and later) how to block Flash LSOs that are not being delivered by the operator of the page you are on at the time). Please note that setting the Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash LSOs may reduce or impede the functionality of some Flash applications, including, potentially, Flash applications used in connection with the Site or our online content.
In conjunction with the gathering of data through cookies, Web servers may log records such as your device type, operating system type, device advertising identifier, browser type, domain, and other system settings, as well as the language your system uses and the country and time zone where your device is located. The Web server logs also may record the address of the Web page that referred you to the Services, the IP address (and associated city and state or province for the IP address) of the device you use to connect to the Internet, and data about your interaction with the Services, such as which pages you visit.
We do not recognize or respond to browser-initiated Do Not Track signals, as the Internet industry is currently still working on Do Not Track standards, implementations, and solutions.
We may use your information for any of the following reasons:
We may combine information that we collect from you through the Services with information that we obtain from affiliated and non-affiliated third parties, and information derived for any other products or services we provide.
We may aggregate and/or de-identify information collect through the Services. We may use de-identified or aggregated data for any purpose, including without limited for research and marketing purposes and may also share such data with any third parties.
The following provides information about entities with whom we may share information. Our practices may vary depending on the type of information.
Affiliates. We may share information with our affiliates.
Service Providers. We may share information with third parties that help us operate our business and provide our services, such as contractors that provide us with technology, services, data or content.
Other Parties When Required by Law or as Necessary to Protect Our Users and the Services. We may share information when we believe that doing so is necessary to protect, enforce, or defend the legal rights, privacy, safety, or property of St. Jude, our employees or agents or users, or to comply with applicable law or legal process, including responding to requests from public and government authorities.
Business Transfers. We may transfer the information we hold in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets (such as in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization, dissolution or liquidation) or in connection with steps we take in anticipation of such a transaction.
Aggregated or De-Identified Information. We may share aggregated or de-identified data without restriction.
Otherwise with Your Consent or at Your Direction. In addition to the sharing described in this Policy, we may share information with third parties whenever you consent to or direct such sharing.
We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of 13 without parental consent, unless permitted by law. If we learn that a child under the age of 13 has provided us with personal information (as defined by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act), we may delete it.
We employ administrative, technical, and physical security measures to help protect information from unauthorized access. These measures vary depending on the sensitivity of the information we have collected. However, no method of transmission over the Internet or via mobile device, or method of electronic storage, is absolutely secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
The Services may contain links to third-party websites or services. If you choose to use these sites or services, you may disclose your information not just to those third parties, but also to their users and the public more generally depending on how their services function. Because these third-party websites and services are not operated by St. Jude, St. Jude is not responsible for the content or practices of those websites or services. The collection, use, and disclosure of your personal and other information will be subject to the privacy policies of the third party websites or services, and not this Policy. We urge you to read the privacy and security policies of these third parties.
St. Jude does not disclose your personal information to third parties for the purpose of directly marketing their services to you unless you first agree to such disclosure.
Manage Your Account Information. You may modify your account information by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our computer systems are currently based in the United States, so your data will be processed by us in the United States. If you create an account with the Services as a visitor from outside the United States, by using the Services, you agree to this Policy and you consent to the transfer of all such information to the United States and to the processing of that information as described in this Policy.
