We collect an IP address from all visitors to our Site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our Site, analyze trends, track users' activity, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the site, and deliver customized, personalized content.

Use of “Cookies”:
Your browser is probably set to accept cookies. However, if you would prefer not to receive cookies, you can manually delete, block, or disable all cookies, within your browser privacy settings or options. Since each browser is a little different, look at your browser's Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. This may impact your user experience and parts of the Sites may not work for you; however, you will be able to submit information.
You cannot remove or block web beacons as they form part of the content of the web pages. These tools do not identify you personally and allow us to track and analyze aggregated usage data about our Site and its use. However, because they work in conjunction with cookies, turning off cookies will prevent web beacons from tracking your user activity on our Site. The beacon can still account for an anonymous visit, but your unique information will not be recorded. The Site does not monitor for or behave differently if your computer transmits a “do not track” or similar beacon or message.
All information provided to Children's Cancer Research Fund is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us.
