- INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We collect the following types of information.
Information you provide us directly:
- Any information you provide at the time of registering for a Stupid Cancer App account. This includes your name, password, e-mail address, and any other information you provide. Note that while numerous fields are provided at the time of registering, not all are required to activate your Stupid Cancer App account.
- Profile information that you provide for your user profile. This information allows us to help you or others be "found" on the Stupid Cancer App, and may include your name, address, health conditions, e-mail address, or any other information you may voluntarily choose to place into your profile or share with other Users.
- Any other Content that you choose to associate with your account on the Service.
- Communications between you and the Stupid Cancer App. For example, we may send you Service-related emails (e.g., account verification, changes/updates to features of the Service, technical and security notices). Note that you may not opt out of Service-related e-mails.
We do not collect personally identifiable information from you unless you provide it to us voluntarily and knowingly. Personal information may also be needed for certain optional activities:
- If you choose to customize the Application or Service to your needs, we retain the preferences you select so that you will not have to reenter the information each time you access the Application or the Service. These preferences may include requests for email, news, information on specific cancer types, language preferences, and interest group selections (patient, medical professional, volunteer). You can access your profile by entering your e-mail address and password each time you use the Application or Service.
- If you choose to participate in a chat, discussion, or any other forum that we make available to our users in connection with the Service, please remember that any information that you disclose in these areas becomes public information. You should exercise caution when deciding whether or not to disclose your personal information.

These tools collect information and data sent by your device or our Service, including the persons with whom you are connected, the nature of the information, relationship, or support you may be seeking, and other information that assists us in improving the Service. We collect and use this analytics information with analytics information from other Users. We may choose to use this information to both improve the Service, make it available to other persons or entities who may benefit from the Service, or other persons or entities with whom we may choose to enter into a license agreement for the use of the Service or the Application. However, we will never share individualized medical information with third parties. We may share de-identified or aggregate information as stated herein for the purposes stated herein.
