In order to allow you to take advantage of some of our site’s features and services, Blood Centers of the Pacific may need to collect from you “personally identifiable information” which may include, for example, your name, address, email address, and telephone number, or any other information that, when taken alone or tied to other information, would allow someone to identify or contact you.

We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.

Aggregate Information Blood Centers of the Pacific May Collect Automatically
Blood Centers of the Pacific may collect certain types of aggregate information automatically whenever you access and use our site. However, this information is aggregate in nature and is not by itself personally identifiable. Examples of aggregate information include: (1) the Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using (discussed in more detail below); (2) the date and time you access our site; and (3) the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our site. We may use this aggregate information to better enable us to provide you with the resources you need and the level of quality you expect. For example, information about the sections of our site people visit most frequently and least frequently helps us decide which features website users find most useful. Blood Centers of the Pacific may sometimes share with third parties certain aggregate information.
