CCA’s Privacy Policy Statement

CCA is committed to protecting and maintaining the confidential information entrusted to us by our celiac disease members, donors, employees, volunteers, public and other stakeholders. We will maintain that trust with all information shared with us. This applies to any inquiries about CD & DH, the gluten-free diet, membership, research data, volunteering, and fund raising. It pertains to any information that can be used to distinguish, identify or contact a specific individual. Safeguards are in place to ensure that information will not be shared more widely than for the purpose for its original intent. The exception is business contact information and other publicly available information, which is not, considered personal information.

We gather contact information to serve our membership through postal and electronic mailing in order to inform, advise and update them on CCA’s work toward achieving our mission.

While we are committed to confidentiality, CCA cannot guarantee that confidentiality when faced with court requests for contact information.

We commit to a regular review of our Privacy Policy and to update it as deemed necessary by our Board of Directors.
