CCB Sperm Donor Privacy Policy

California Cryobank's Commitment to Your Privacy

California Cryobank, Inc. (CCB) maintains strict policies on the use of donor identification and related information. We value your privacy and know how important it is for you to have complete peace of mind regarding our use of information about you. This Privacy Policy ("Privacy Policy") describes how we collect information from you or about you, why we collect this information, and how we will use or disclose this information. If you visit our site or submit any information to California Cryobank (and its subsidiaries), you accept the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy. Please read them carefully.

COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION

Once you have met the initial requirements for the program, based on the answers to the questions in Step 1, an appointment will be made for you to visit the lab. At this appointment, you will be asked to complete a donor application and to collect your first semen specimen in a private collection room. Compensation is not provided for this specimen as it is only used for analysis. We will contact you, normally within 3 days, with the results of the laboratory analysis and the review of your application.

Personally identifiable information is information you provide that lets us know specific facts about you so that we can respond to your requests. This can include your name, address, email address, phone number, payment information and social security number. In each case, we use Your personally identifiable information for the purpose that it is submitted to us, which may include providing it to third parties with whom we have relationships to deliver the products or services you request. We will use Your Information to respond to requests you may make of us, and from time to time, we may refer to Your Information to better understand your needs and how we can improve our websites, products and services. We may also use Your Information to contact you and/or provide you with general health information (like information on certain health conditions) as well as information about our products and services. We may also enhance or merge Your Information with data obtained from third parties for the same purposes.

You should be aware that this site is not intended for, or designed to attract, individuals under the age of 18. We do not collect personally identifiable information from any person we actually know is an individual under the age of 18.

We may share Your Information with agents, contractors or partners of CCB in connection with services that these individuals or entities perform for, or with, CCB. These agents, contractors or partners are restricted from using this data in any way other than to provide services for CCB, or services for the collaboration in which they and CCB are engaged (for example, some of our products are developed and marketed through joint agreements with other companies). We may, for example, provide your information to agents, contractors or partners for hosting our databases, for data processing services, or so that they can mail you information that you requested.

We may disclose personal information to respond to legal requirements, enforce our policies, or protect anyone's rights, property or safety. In addition to the above, we may disclose personal information to other business entities, should we plan to merge with or be acquired by that business entity. Should such a combination occur, we will require that the new combined entity follow this privacy policy with respect to your personal information.

COMMUNICATIONS AND OPT-OUT OPTION

We may use the information that you provide to send you information and materials that we think may be of interest to you. If you do not wish to receive any further information or materials from us, you may opt out by checking the appropriate box on the website.

California Cryobank, Inc. will not share your personal information with a third party for the purpose of solicitation without your prior consent. Any disclosure of personal information to a third party will require those parties adherence to at least equivalent Privacy policies.

We treat data as an asset that must be protected and use various technologies and procedures (network and data encryption, passwords, physical security, etc.) to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure.
