Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us, so we operate the Jimmy Fund Web Site by the following principles:


You may use our site without disclosing personal, identifying information. We will not obtain such information about you unless you choose to submit it to us. If you supply personal, identifying information (such as name, address or telephone numbers) for various purposes on this site, we only use the information for that purpose (such as to provide the service or information you have requested).


The Jimmy Fund takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When a registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and protected with the best encryption software in the industry-SSL.

Should you enter your credit card number to make an online gift to the Jimmy Fund, we will use the credit card number only to process your gift. While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user information off line. Our software and hardware is configured to provide maximum security.

Opt out of mailings

You may fill out an online form to stop receiving print mail and/or email communications from the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.


The Jimmy Fund Web site uses cookies to track traffic coming to our site. We do not collect personal data such as name, age, telephone number, email, or mailing address. Cookies will also be used to identify a person who chooses to register on our site. If you choose to register on our site and are given a password, choose to give gifts online, or choose to enroll in our email subscription services, we will identify you with cookies. You will always have an opportunity to opt out at any time.

Information collection and use

The Jimmy Fund occasionally shares its contributor mailing lists with other non-profit organizations. This process saves us money and is carefully monitored. You may opt to be excluded from this sharing process if you wish.

If you'd like to opt out, please email and indicate you do not want to participate in sharing.

Gifts on the web

When you make a gift on our site, your email will be entered into our donor database. We may send you emails or mailings in the future informing you of other giving opportunities or providing news about Dana-Farber Cancer Institute or the Jimmy Fund. If you choose not to receive any further communication from us, you may opt out.
