Privacy Policy

The Cancer Research Society (CRS) would like to thank you for visiting its website and for familiarizing yourself with its privacy policy. By visiting the CRS’s website at, you are implicitly accepting its policy on the protection of personal information.

The CRS reserves the right to amend this policy at any time. In addition, the CRS is committed to keeping its privacy policy up to date and posted on its website.


To ensure the improvement of its website, the CRS uses cookies to track your visits. These cookies also serve to provide you with certain useful features (for example, to display information according to your choice of language), to customize the website according to your particular interests, or to store your personal information (for example, your password).

A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your browser by an internet server and can only be read by the server that sent it to you. It works like an identification card. It is not a program and cannot be executed as computer code or transmit viruses.

Most browsers are configured initially to accept cookies. However, you can set your browser to warn you whenever a server sends you a cookie, giving you the chance to refuse it. To find out more about cookies and how to alter your settings for them, you should go to your browser’s Help function.

Personal Information

You do not need to provide any personal information to access the CRS’s website. However, under certain circumstances the CRS may ask you for personal information. If so, you will be given the choice of whether you wish to provide it. For example, there is certain personal information that you are not obliged to send when you are making an online donation. You can also choose not to receive further communications from the CRS.

Online Donations

If you choose to make an online donation to the CRS, you will be asked to provide the followinginformation:

Contact Information:
first and last name, street address, city, province or state, country, postal or zip code and email address

Credit Card Information:
type of card, credit card number, expiry date and the CVV number.

When you make a donation online, you are accessing a secure server. Your credit card information will therefore be sent to the CRS offices safely by encrypted email.

In Memoriam and In Tribute Contributions:
For this type of gift, a personalized acknowledgement card is sent to a person designated by you. Consequently, the CRS asks that you provide the name, address, city, province or state, country and postal or zip code of the person to whom the card is to be addressed.


People who request that their name or the amount of their donation not be made public will remain anonymous. To make this request, simply contact us by email at or by telephone at 514 861‑9227 or toll‑free at 1 888 766‑2262.
