We collect information about you only if you volunteer it. There are several ways you may volunteer information on the site. These include completing a survey, sending an email inquiry to us, contributing online, or registering for or participating in an online or in-person event. We may use this information to contact you for support or donation opportunities and to answer questions you submit to the site.
If you supply us with your postal or email address you may receive periodic mailings from us with information on new programs and services, donation opportunities or upcoming events.
Vulvodynia Matters sometimes adds contact information to our mailing list that is considered to be public information. For example, postal and email addresses of press contacts, government agencies, sponsors, healthcare providers, researchers, and other similar entities.
Donors and users can also write or email Vulvodynia Matters and request to be removed from our mailing list and/or to not receive fundraising letters and emails.
Vulvodynia Matters is the sole owner of and the only organization that uses the information collected on this site. We do not sell, share, trade, or rent this information to others under any circumstances. Vulvodynia Matters does not send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations.

C. Keeping Your Information Secure
We have implemented security measures we consider reasonable and appropriate to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Please be advised, however, that while we strive to protect your personally identifiable information and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and are not responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your personally identifiable information. In the unfortunate event that your “personally identifiable information” (as the term or similar terms are defined by any applicable law requiring notice upon a security breach) is compromised, we may notify you by e-mail (at our sole and absolute discretion) to the last e-mail address you have provided us in the most expedient time reasonable under the circumstances; provided, however, delays in notification may occur while we take necessary measures to determine the scope of the breach and restore reasonable integrity to the system as well as for the legitimate needs of law enforcement if notification would impede a criminal investigation. From time to time we evaluate new technology for protecting information, and when appropriate, we upgrade our information security systems.
