Updated July 23, 2008.

This Privacy Policy sets out how The Prostate Net, Inc. (referred to hereinafter as "we", "our" or "us") uses and protects any information that users or viewers (referred to hereinafter as "you" and "your") give us when you access the Site. The term the "Site" refers to the online information and communications service located at http://www.theprostatenet.org, which includes, but is not limited to, any and all information provided by us through the Cell Cast program and the "In the Know" newsletter.

We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. We feel it is important for you to know how we handle the information we receive from you via the Internet. You can visit the Site without revealing any personal information; however, you are required to provide an e-mail address and other information to subscribe to the "Cell Cast" program and "In the Know" newsletter.

How We and Our Affiliates Collect and Use Personal Information

We collect personal information on an individual only if the individual provides the information to us. All personal information collected on individuals is kept confidential and in a secure environment. Access to personal information is restricted to only those personnel with a legitimate business purpose. Except as noted, we will not share your personal information with third parties.

While the Site may contain links to websites operated by third parties, we have no control over the privacy policies and practices of such third party sites.
