CAPC Privacy Notice
Thank you for reviewing the Center to Advance Palliative Care’s (CAPC) Privacy Notice. CAPC takes the protection of your data very seriously and has tried to use plain language in this Notice when possible. This Notice describes how and when CAPC collects and uses personally identifiable information of the users of its services. This Notice covers an array of CAPC users, from those who simply browse the CAPC website, to those whose organization is a member and who set up an account, for CAPC event registrants, or for those who make payments through the CAPC website. The type of information CAPC collects depends on what type of user you are. CAPC uses several third-party services to process or store this data, depending on the user type. More information on the specific services is below. These third-party services are outside of CAPC control. CAPC is not responsible for the security or privacy of any information collected by other websites or other services. This Privacy Notice does not govern these third party’s content or services, and we encourage you to review the privacy statements applicable to the third-party services you use.

CAPC members are those users who are authorized under their organization’s membership with CAPC to access CAPC services, and who are registered and have agreed to the terms of the CAPC User Registration Agreement.
During the online registration process, CAPC collects certain personally identifiable information about each user in order to: (1) create a unique profile that, among other things, reflects that user’s preferences for continuing education credits; (2) ensure the user is authorized to use such services; (3) provide accurate and relevant information if the user requests help from CAPC, or for us to contact the user regarding their account; and (4) understand how users use the system and improve on its services to members. This personally identifiable information is input by the user directly (such as name, contact information, title, etc.) CAPC does not share this information with any third-parties, except, in certain circumstances, with the user’s membership institution. CAPC stores this information in a protected database using a third-party vendor, Salesforce.

In addition to the information filled in during the registration process, CAPC also uses a session cookie, which simply allows users who log in to be identified as a logged-in user. Without this cookie, no one would be able to login and access member-only resources.
