Privacy Policy

This Website is owned and operated by the American Red Cross, Greenwich Connecticut Chapter. We recognize that visitors to our site may be concerned about the information they provide to us, and how we treat that information. This Privacy Policy addresses those concerns. This policy may be changed or updated from time to time.


Our Policy
The Greenwich Chapter uses its best efforts to respect the privacy of its online visitors. At our site, we do not collect personally identifiable information from individuals unless they provide it to us voluntarily and knowingly. This means we do not require you to register or provide information to us in order to view our site.
       The American Red Cross only gathers personally identifiable data, such as names, addresses, zip/postal codes, e-mail addresses, etc., when voluntarily submitted by a visitor. For example, personally identifiable information may be collected in order to respond to a stated desire to volunteer time to the Greenwich Chapter or make a blood donation appointment online. This information is used solely by the Greenwich Chapter or other entities who are involved in the operation of this site for internal purposes. Greenwich Chapter lists are never sold to third parties. We will only share personally identifiable information with third parties when the person submitting the information authorizes us to share it or we are required to by law.


How Do We Use "Cookies"?
