BCRO bears no responsibility for the information provided by clinics or physicians linked to, or described on, our web site(s) as providers of -cell-transplantation. We strive to provide our visitors and clients with the highest level of privacy possible, and therefore require that the clinics or physicians linked to, or described on, our web site(s) offer no less protection than that offered in this Privacy Statement.

Information We Gather from You Personal Information
We do not collect any personal information from a visitor to our site unless that visitor explicitly and intentionally provides it. Under no circumstances do we collect any personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, or sex life.
If you are simply browsing our site, we do not gather any personal information about you.
There is only one way in which you may explicitly and intentionally provide BCRO with and consent to our collection of certain personal and medical information:
your Decision to Place an Order for Our Individually For Each Patient Prepared Live Cell Transplants or Other Live Cell Therapeutica
If you choose to place an order for manufacturing of our individually for each specific patient prepared cell transplants, or other therapeutics of biologic nature, we will consider you a prospective client only after you provide us with a physician's prescription for the same, or alternatively a medical summary of all your diseases(s) and of your overall medical condition, based on which we will advise you whether you are or you are not a candidate for BCRO -cell-transplantation, or other type of biological therapies. But in any case, you will have to have a qualified physician familiar with BCRO cell transplantation carry out the implantation of your fetal precursor cell transplants.
In certain clinical situations we may inform you that your medical status positions you in a 'gray zone, because there has not been a sufficient experience with fetal precursor cell transplantation as a treatment of your particular illness(es), but it still would be worthwhile for you to try such treatment, as the risk/benefit ratio is clearly in favor of cell transplantation.
In your medical summary, or in your order for preparation of your fetal precursor cell transplants, we will require your name, date of birth, sex, address, phone number, e-mail address. In case that a client would authorize BCRO in writing to deliver cell transplants to his/her physician, then we would require physician's name, address, phone number, and E-mail address.

We assure you that the information we gather from you is used by BCRO only as explained below.
Use and Sharing of information that you provided to BCRO
BCRO responds to e-mail questions from those prospective clients only who submitted their medical summary, and were accepted by BCRO as suitable candidates for cell transplantation, or were placed in a 'gray zone', as described above. We will retain all medical data of the prospective client, and the subsequent E-mail correspondence, for one year since the date of the last contact. Immediately thereafter all such files are deleted.
The information about clients who ordered cell transplants from BCRO has to be kept by U.S. law for an indefinite period of time, but at this time BCRO is prepared to do so for 5 years only. Currently we are not aware of similar time requirements by the lawmakers of other countries.
BCRO does not share any information sent to us by a prospective client, or a client who placed an order for manufacture of cell transplants, with anyone.
If we are required to disclose by law
If we are required by law to disclose certain information to local, state, federal, national or international government or law enforcement authorities, we will do so.
