We do not use cookies to track the activity of anyone on our site. We make use of cookies, but cookie information is stored on the visitor’s computer, not on our server.

Email Addresses

Email addresses are never sold, traded, or shared in any way with third parties. There are three instances in which we ask for email addresses:

  • When visitors subscribe to any of our email notification services, email addresses are required to transmit the information.
  • When visitors register for our Symposium, email addresses are required to confirm registration.
  • When visitors submit abstracts for presentation at our Symposium, email addresses are required to confirm submission.

Postal Addresses

When a visitor signs up for updates, the form includes mailing address fields. If the visitor fills out these form fields, his or her name and address are added to a mailing list that we use to communicate with our visitors and, in some instances, may be made available to other organizations serving the Lysosomal Disease Research Community / Network. If you do not want to have your name on this mailing list, please do not include complete these form fields in the mailing list form.
