Privacy Policy

The Basics:

The Details:

PPR continues its commitment to protecting email addresses and other personal information we receive.  We will never sell, rent, or lease email addresses or any personal information. However, in light of recent events, PPR (like other organizations) recognizes that there are, and could be, information-accessing activities about which it is unaware and over which it has no control.  PPR will continue to use processes and procedures so that PPR is not sharing or disclosing email addresses and other personal information without your permission.

Email Subscriptions

In order to receive information about services, updates on health privacy, and legislative action you must opt-in to our e-mail list. We will not automatically send you information without your consent. Only your e-mail address is required. You have the option to provide your name and mailing address.

As a 501©3 nonprofit organization we rely on the support of individuals. We have fundraising drives every few months to support the services we provide. You may opt-out of these fundraising e-mails and continue to receive other e-mail that you are interested in.

You may opt out of any kind of e-mails or all e-mails entirely. (Note: if you make a donation or send a letter to a decision maker, you will receive a confirmation e-mail but are not automatically put in our e-mail group.) Most e-mails also include a link to unsubscribe out of e-mail at the bottom of the message. You can also e-mail us directly.

If you use the Tell-A-Friend option to share our website or an e-mail with someone, we do not collect that friend’s name or e-mail address. The friend must opt-in to receive information from us.

We Do Not Collect Data

We do not use Permanent Cookies or “remember me” features. This means you have to personally enter any of your information every time. The “session based” or Temporary Cookies on our site will only store activity for a current session to allow you a smoother user experience. These temporary cookies are discarded as soon as you close your browser. They are not collected or stored in any way.

We do not use or analyze IP addresses or web logs. Permanent web log activity is protected using secure data procedures accessible only by password protected entry.

Security for Donations

All information provided when donating online to Patient Privacy Rights is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. We do not store credit card information or social security numbers.

Our Site contains links to other Web sites. Please note that when you click on one of these links, you are entering another Web site for which Patient Privacy Rights has no responsibility. We encourage you to read the privacy statements on all such sites as their policies may be different than ours.

Please only use these forms to communicate any sensitive health information, such as questions, comments or information pertaining to health related issues. We encourage you to ensure that any time you provide health information in an online environment that you are doing so in a secure system.
