The Cancer Patient Education Network (CPEN) is committed to
protecting the privacy of all members and guests who visit the CPEN
Web site. This policy was developed in the interest of protecting that
privacy. This policy applies only to the CPEN Web site, www.cancerpatienteducation.org
It does not apply to the Web sites of any member or to any Web sites
operated by organizations or groups who associate themselves with
CPEN, nor does it apply to any Web sites featuring links to the CPEN
organizations or persons not owned, controlled, managed or employed by
CPEN. This policy will be periodically reexamined as technology,
business and legal requirements change.
Collection of Information
When you browse the CPEN Web site as a non-member, you are
anonymous. CPEN does not collect personal information about any person
that is not provided voluntarily. We track anonymous information,
such as which pages were visited and for how long, on our server. We
use this information solely to learn more about trends on the Web
site, such as which web pages you viewed and how long you visited.
If you apply for membership, register for training or a
conference, or request any other product or service, CPEN collects
information from you such as your name, title, company, address,
phone, fax, e-mail address and professional discipline/interest. This
information is collected only if you give it voluntarily. Information
provided to CPEN will be used internally in order to process your
specific request and will not be sold or shared with outside parties.
Your information may be used to send you CPEN publications, information
relating to upcoming CPEN activities or important membership
announcements. In addition, CPEN makes members’ contact information
available to other members through the Members-only Web site. This
information can only be accessed with a legitimate CPEN username and
password; for this reason, we strongly urge you limit unauthorized
access to your CPEN username and password. You may edit your contact
information at any time through the Members-only Web site. If you have
difficulty editing your information online, you may update it by
calling or e-mailing CPEN headquarters at 434.284.4697 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Disclosure of Information
CPEN may occasionally hire other companies to provide limited
services on our behalf, such as bulk mailing or publication printing.
We provide those companies only with the information they need to
complete to service they have been contracted to perform, and they are
prohibited from using the information provided for any other purpose.
CPEN may disclose your information if we are required to do so
by law or if such disclosure is necessary to comply with a legal
order; defend CPEN or its employees, affiliates or partners; or
protect the personal safety of CPEN, affiliates, partners, members or
Credit Card Information
You may provide CPEN with credit card information to pay for
membership dues, training, conference registration fees, exam fees or
any other product or service. We will never voluntarily disclose your
credit card information to any third party organization or person who
is not employed by CPEN to process your payment.
Cookies are commonly used by Web sites in order to make
accessing that Web site faster and more efficient. Many organizations
purchase several items or services at one time instead of having to
monitor statistics regarding your visit to the Web site (such as how
long you visited, what web pages you visited on our site, etc.) and to
hold items in your shopping cart for you. We use "session-only"
cookies, which are deleted from your computer’s memory when you close
your browser window. You can set your internet browser to not accept
cookies, or to ask you before accepting certain types of cookies, but
this may keep you from having access to all of the benefits of the
CPEN Web site. In most cases, a medium level of cookie security will
allow you to log in to and use the CPEN site. Using cookies in this
manner is standard across the majority of all Web sites.

alteration of information on this Web site. We have the technology in
place to provide secure transmission of data to and from our Web site.
