Privacy Policy


The ucpn respects the privacy of each individual who contacts us.  We are grateful for your support and the crucial role you play in helping us continue our valuable work.  As part of our commitment to safe guarding your privacy we have adopted the online privacy policy outlined below.

  1. Collection and use of information

    We collect two kinds of information, site usage data, which is not individually identifiable, and individually identifiable information.

  2. Site usage data

    Our Web server automatically recognizes and collects the domain name of each visitor to our Web site.  We collect information about visitors to our site, such as the number visitors, what pages they access, and the length of their visit.  This information is used in aggregate form in order to manage our Web site and improve its content.

  3. Individually identifiable information

    We collect individually identifiable information about you when you choose to share information about yourself, for example, when you make a donation, request information or sign up to be an advocate.  This information may include your postal or e-mail address, your telephone number and the type of disability you may have.

    Individually identifiable information is used to provide you with information or to deliver the service you have requested.  If you provide your postal address, telephone number or e-mail address to ucpn online, you may receive periodic contact from us.

    If you would like to change the way we contact you, please contact us at  

    At certain parts of some of our site, only persons who provide us with the requested personally identifiable information will be able to use tools or otherwise participate in the site’s activities and offerings.

    We also may collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit some Web pages or fill out forms such as the type of browser you are using (e.g., Netscapes Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using, (e.g., Windows ’95 or Mac OS) and the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g., America Online and Earthlink). 

    Some portions of our site provide special services and offer interactive tools that allow users to upload information for public consumption.  In some cases, users can share experiences, give advice and connect with others.  This privacy policy does not apply RA Connect.  Pleas remember that chat rooms, message boards and personal page are public forums and personal information disclosed there will be seen by others.  In addition, please exercise caution when posting information or providing information about yourself to others, especially contact information, such as street address, telephone number or email address.  For more on the use of the RA Connect, please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions page for that section of the site.

    Email Communications

    We occasionally send out an email newsletter and direct email communications to Cerebral Palsy site visitors to highlight news, information and opportunities available from ucpn. You can elect not to receive communications from us, either by contacting us at or by noting your preference in response to communications from us.  In addition, all ucpn e-newsletters and direct email communications have easy-to-follow unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email.

  6. Links to Other Sites

    Our site provides links to our Web sites where you can find out more about Services in the community.  Please note that ucpn is not responsible for the information practices of linked sites.  We encourage you to review the privacy policy of each site you visit.

    Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important.  For that reason, we adhere to the 1998 Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).  (For more information, visit the Federal Trade Commission’s COPPA site at

  8. Security

    In order to prevent unauthorized access and protect our user’s personal information, we strive to maintain physical, electronic and administrative safeguards to secure the information we collect online.  For example, online shopping and contributions are processed using a secure server. This secure server software, SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us.  Furthermore, all the customer transactional data we collect is protected against unauthorized access with the use of digital certificates.

  9. Privacy Policy Changes

    If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes here.  We encourage you to review our policy from time to time.
