Privacy Policy

Students for Oncological Aid and Relief (SOAR) respects the privacy of our donors and website visitors. We are committed to full transparency in outlining what information we collect, why we collect it, and how you can update, retrieve, and request removal of your information.

Personal contact information we collect and what we do with it


When you are making a donation, purchasing a product, registering for an event, filing an inquiry, or subscribing to our online newsletter, SOAR may ask you for personal contact information such as your name, mailing address, phone number and e-mail address. We may use this contact information to provide you with a receipt or financial report; to contact you to clarify or obtain information about an order you placed or a donation you made; or to send you additional information about SOAR.

In some cases when you make a donation or sponsorship to your local chapter or ask for local chapter information, your contact information may be passed on to your local chapter.

Personal billing information we collect and what we do with it


In addition to personal contact information, we ask for billing information, such as your billing address and credit card number, when you make a donation or purchase a product. We use secure servers to gather and process your billing information. Your billing information is not shared with any other organizations, and your credit card number is not retained once your transaction has been authorized and processed.

How to view or change your information


If you wish to modify the frequency of future communications from SOAR or change your information, please write to us at our headquarters or e-mail address below.

Normal browsing


SOAR does not collect any personally identifying information from you when you visit our website unless you choose to provide such information to us.

You can browse the SOAR website without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself.



When you visit our website, we might store some information on your computer in the form of a “cookie” (i.e., a small piece of data that stores information on your browser in your computer’s hard drive) or similar file. We use cookies for “retargeting” in our Internet advertising campaigns so that third party vendors, including Google, can show you advertising about SOAR as you browse the Internet. Retargeting is a marketing tool that identifies you as a previous visitor to the SOAR website and targets you for specific outreach messages, encouraging you to revisit our website or consider donating. Any personal information we gather will be kept private and not shared with other organizations. If you prefer, you can set your browser to refuse cookies, or to notify you when you receive a new cookie.


Links to other sites


This website contains links to other sites, including ones that may gather personal contact information. SOAR is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of such websites. However, any personal information obtained by us through other sites is treated as if it was gathered on our site and our privacy policy applies.

Social media platforms


When you interact with any SOAR page or account on a social media platform, such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, or YouTube, we may also collect the personal information that you make publicly available to us on that page or through that account, including your account ID or “handle.” Please be advised that each social media platform may collect specific data not listed here, and SOAR has no control over how third party platforms collect or use your personal information. Please refer to that platform’s privacy policy for additional guidance.

Changes to this policy


Our Privacy Policy is subject to change from time to time. Any changes to this Privacy Policy will be posted on this Web page, so that you will always know what information we collect, how we use it, and what choices you have.
