Privacy Policy and Terms of Use

We value your privacy. We collect only the information we need to make this website and our other services work properly, and we do not sell it or share it (except as the law may require).  

By visiting or using this website, you consent to these policies.

The most current version of this policy will always be posted on this website.

Personal Information

We do not automatically gather any personal information from you, such as your name, phone number, e-mail, or address. We only collect personal information if you join as a National Safer Supply Community of Practice member or if you register for one of our events. In that case, we only collect the information we need to provide our services and report to our funder.

Any personal information you give us is protected under applicable privacy law. We will let you know, at the point of collection, that we are collecting your personal information, what we will use it for, and that you have the right to access the information.  

While registration is not required to use this website, it is required to access the members-only area and its tools and discussion forums.

Discussion forums

If you post comments in the member discussion forums on this website, any personally identifiable information you provide in those comments or articles could be read, collated, and used by anyone viewing them. We are not responsible for personal information you disclose on the member discussion forum.

Social media

We have accounts on various social media services. Social media accounts are public. If you interact with us on social media, your comments may be read by anyone. Please read the privacy policies of any social media providers you use.
