Privacy Policy of Peyronie's Disease Institute

Peyronie’s Disease Institute respects your privacy and is committed to protect the personal information you may share with us. Generally, you can browse through our website without giving us any information about yourself. When we do need your personal information to provide services that you request or when you choose to provide us with your personal information, this policy describes how we collect and use your personal information.

Information collection

Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, email address, a home, postal or other physical address, contact information, title, birth date, verification of diagnosis if appropriate to the circumstances, or other information when needed to provide a service you requested. When you browse our website, you do so anonymously, unless you have previously indicated that you wish Peyronie’s Disease Institute to remember your login and password. We don't automatically collect personal information, including your email address. We do log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which part of our website you visit and how long you spend there. But we do not link your IP address to any personal information unless you have logged in to our website.

Like many other commercial websites, the Peyronie’s Disease Institute website may use a standard technology called a "cookie" to collect information about how you use the site. Peyronie’s Disease Institute collects personal information when you register with us to use or purchase certain Peyronie’s Disease Institute products or services, when you ask to be included in an email or other mailing list. From time to time, Peyronie’s Disease Institute receives personal information from business partners and vendors. Peyronie’s Disease Institute only uses such information if it has been collected in accordance with acceptable privacy practices consistent with this Policy and applicable laws.

Access to certain Peyronie’s Disease Institute web pages may or may not require a login and a password. Unless you request deletion of your personal information as specified below, your personal information may be retained by Peyronie’s Disease Institute to verify compliance with the agreement, or track usage of other applications available on those pages.


When personal or medical information is collected, we will inform you at the point of collection, as well as the purpose for the collection. Peyronie’s Disease Institute will not transfer your personal information to third parties without your consent. If you choose to provide us with your personal information, we may only transfer that information, within Peyronie’s Disease Institute or to Peyronie’s Disease Institute's third party service providers, with your permission. Only upon receiving your permission, we may transfer your information.

We will always give you the opportunity to "opt out" of receiving direct marketing or market research information. This means we assume you have given us your consent to collect and use your information in accordance with this Policy unless you take affirmative action to indicate that you do not consent, for instance by clicking or checking the appropriate option or box at the point of collection. In some cases, when applicable, we will provide you with the opportunity to "opt in." This means, we will require your affirmative action to indicate your consent before we use your information for purposes other than the purpose for which it was submitted.

Cookies and tracking technology

A cookie is a small data file that certain Web sites write to your hard drive when you visit them. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that the site uses to track the pages you've visited, but the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can't read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Some parts of Peyronie’s Disease Institute's website use cookies to track user traffic patterns. We do this in order to determine the usefulness of our website information to our users and to see how effective our navigational structure is in helping users reach that information.

If you prefer not to receive cookies while browsing our website, you can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies and refuse the cookie when your browser alerts you to its presence. You can also refuse all cookies by turning them off in your browser, although you may not be able to take full advantage of Peyronie’s Disease Institute's website if you do so. In particular, you may be required to accept cookies in order to complete certain actions on our website. You do not need to have cookies turned on, however, to use/navigate through many parts of our website, except access to certain of Peyronie’s Disease Institute's web pages may require a login and password.

How we use information collected
