Our site's forms may require you to give us contact information (like your name, e-mail and address). We may use the contact information from these registration and survey forms to send you information about other programs or events of National Marfan Foundation. You may opt-out of receiving future mailings. See the choice/opt-out section below.
When you order products or services from our site, we need to know your name, e-mail address, mailing address, credit card number, and expiration date.

We also collect anonymous, non-identifiable information about visitors. When you visit our site, our server automatically records your domain (service provider), operating system and web browser type/version as well as the time and date of your visit on a particular page.

When you are asked to provide personal, private and/or financial information (such as a credit card number), we use state-of-the-art security to safeguard your data. The secure server software, SSL (secure sockets layer), encrypts or encodes all information you enter before it is sent to us. Furthermore, all of the customer transactional data we collect is protected against unauthorized access with the use of digital certificates. Digital certificates for the National Marfan Foundation are issued by RSA Data Security, Inc., a trusted provider.
