Information is collected from you when you register with us, or when you contribute to or use some of the advanced features on the site.  The information we collect is clearly set out on the web page on which it is collected.  See for example our membership  and order form.  In addition, we may collect your IP address and use cookies to ensure that you are recognised as a member of The Donor Conception Network when you return to the site. This will happen unless you configure your web browser not to accept them.

However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information which you send to us, and you do so at your own risk.
