At The Change Foundation, we understand that privacy is one of the biggest concerns for today’s internet users. We want to assure you that we respect the privacy of every person who visits our website or uses our healthcare resources. We’ve created this statement to demonstrate our commitment to your privacy and to show the value we place on the information you provide to us.
How we use information you volunteer
In various places on our website, we may request information from you. This might include your name, email address, other contact information, and demographic data such as your occupation. We use this information to:
- send you an electronic newsletter or alert, if you’ve requested it;
- provide you with information you have requested about the Foundation or about our work;
- collect survey data to better meet your research needs;
- send you an email confirming a subscription or download.
We will never share, sell, or rent individual personal information without your advance permission or unless ordered by a court of law. When you volunteer information that may be shared with our partners, we will ask you explicitly to grant us such permission by opting in on a web page.
For visitors to our site who are under 18 years of age, we strongly recommend that you obtain the permission of a parent or guardian before providing us with any information.
Send a friend a message
The Change Foundation e-newsletter, Top of Mind, allows you to send a friend an email message. We use the email addresses you enter to send the requested email, and other related information about Foundation activities.
When you subscribe to The Change Foundation newsletter, we provide simple instructions, in each newsletter, on how you can cancel your subscription.
How we use information we collect automatically
Technical and Demographic Information
The Change Foundation collects technical and demographic information about you that does not personally identify you.

When we send you an email with a link to a Web page, we use a cookie to automatically enter your email address on a Web page form, so you don’t have to type it.
We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners and clients. This is not linked to personal information that can identify any individual person.
