Personal or Medical Information
The TCRC itself does not require any member or user information. However,
any email or correspondence sent to the TCRC may be stored. Emails sent to the TCRC
typically include some medical background and questions, and storing this information
makes it easier to correspond. In a very few cases involving some of the less
common conditions, we may contact someone months or years down to road to ask
for assistance. In some cases we receive questions that cannot be
answered without outside assistance. The TCRC will not disclose any personally
identifiable information about you when asking for assistance without first
asking permission. Identifiable medical or other information is never sold or
shared with anyone.

lists. Such availability means that we cannot guarantee who is subscribed and
what unforeseen use can be made. We are constantly monitoring the use and
possible abuse of our resources but we are aware that unknown entities could
archive the lists without our permission. The only SURE way to protect one's
privacy is to NEVER write to the lists. Each subscriber should weigh the
potential benefits/danger of her/his participation." The list of subscribers
for TC-NET and TC-SUPPORTERS are available only to the list administrators. These
lists are private and have never been and will never be sold or used by anyone
