We use the term “cookies” to refer to cookies and other similar technologies covered by the EU Directive on privacy in electronic communications.

  1. How to protect your information

Transmission Errors or Unauthorized Acts: Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100 per cent secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, World Cholangiocarcinoma Day cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or any information provided online, and you do so at your own risk. World Cholangiocarcinoma Day and its web host will not be liable for disclosures of your personal information due to errors in transmission or unauthorized acts of third parties. However, once we receive your transmission, we do our best to ensure its security on our systems by making reasonable efforts to protect the information.

Security: Our Web site will not collect financial or personal health data from users, as such SSL encryption is not used to protect data transmissions from your computer to our Web site. You are able to see when the SSL encryption is active either by the “padlock” icon at the top or bottom of your browser. In certain areas, password protection is used to protect your privacy and security. Any information provided on this Web site is treated with care and discretion. We will take a proactive approach to ensure the information is kept private and not misused.

  1. Questions about the privacy policy
