Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

We at the Women Survivors Alliance understand that your health is a very personal matter, and we appreciate the trust you place in us to treat your information carefully and sensibly. As part of our commitment to honoring your privacy, we provide this policy (“Privacy Policy”) to explain how we guard your information. We hope this policy will help you make informed decisions about sharing information with us.

1. Application of our Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy applies to the use of our website (the “Site”), as well as products and services owned and operated by us (the “Services”). Note, however, this Privacy Policy does not apply to your use of unaffiliated sites to which our Site only links. Once you enter another web site (whether through an advertisement, service, or content link), be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of that site.

2. Information Collection and Use – General

We collect personal and non-personal information to customize the content you see, fulfill your requests for products or services, and improve our services to you. There are many aspects of our site that can be enjoyed as a visitor, but you need to register in order to take full advantage of the services we provide.


When you register for the site, we collect personal information from you such as your email address and password. Registering allows you to comment on articles, receive our newsletter, be eligible for drawings, etc.


When you search on our site, we store the search terms and the site(s) visited so that we can continuously improve the quality of our search results.


We collect anonymous information about your use of our site through cookies. The cookie does not tell us who you are. Only you can tell us that. The information collected by cookies helps us generate customized content, such as conditions and news that may be important to you, and also allows us to statistically monitor how many people are using our site and for what purposes. For contests or sweepstakes, we may use cookies in order to track your progress and the number of your entries. We do not store any identifying information in any cookies on your computer. Your browser software can be set to reject all cookies or to accept cookies only from our Site. Most browsers offer instructions on how to reset the browser to reject cookies in the “Help” section of the toolbar. If you reject our cookies, you may not be able to log in or use certain functions and conveniences of our site.

3. Sharing of Information With Third Parties

The Women Survivors Alliance is the owner of the information collected on this site. We know how important it is to keep the information that you have entrusted to us confidential, that’s why we will not rent, sell or share any personal information about you.


Registered users on our site should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information (e.g., name, e-mail address, user ID with first and last name, etc.) in a comment or other interactive area, the information can be collected and used by other internet users. This may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or parties. We make no representations and undertake no obligations as to the security of information you voluntarily post.

5. Send-to-a-friend tools

This site may, from time to time, include a send-to-a-friend application that makes it easy for you to forward information or materials from our site to friends or family by e-mail. In order to address your e-mail message, the application will ask you to input the recipient’s e-mail address and/or similar information (including your e-mail address). This information is only used by the application to address your message so that it can be properly sent. The Women Survivors Alliance does not retain any of this information for any purpose.

6. Our commitment to children’s privacy

A special note to parents: This site is not directed to children and we will not request any information from children under 13 at this site. We have developed our privacy practices as they relate to children from guidelines established by the Children’s Advertising Review Unit (CARU) and in compliance with the requirements established by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (“COPPA”). We also recommend that parents monitor their children’s Internet activities and learn and employ software or other tools which can help their children enjoy the fun and entertainment of an on-line experience without compromising their personal safety or allowing them to use the Internet in a manner inconsistent with their parents’ preferences.
