Our site provides users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us through a special online form. You may choose to receive only specific communications or no communications. You cannot remove yourself from our database, but you can prevent communication.

It is the policy of the Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance (MOCA) to discontinue contacting any person upon that person’s oral or written request directed to the organization, its professional fundraiser, or other agent. MOCA shall maintain a record of all requests by persons who indicate to MOCA, its professional fundraiser, and other agents, that they do not wish to be contacted by or on behalf of MOCA.

This policy does not prohibit contact by MOCA that is solicited by a person or a person’s representative, even if the person or his/her representative have requested to be placed on the “do not contact list.” Contact by MOCA that is solicited by a person whose name appears on “do not contact” list shall be limited to providing a direct response to the person’s inquiry and shall not cause the person’s name to be removed from the “do not contact” list.

Upon a person’s (or a person’s authorized representative’s) request that MOCA discontinues further contacts, the person’s name and address will be promptly modified to ensure that no further contact is made with the person.

Permanent Record
MOCA will maintain a record of all requests for discontinuance of contacts, effective with the adoption of this policy by MOCA’s board of directors. Oral requests will be recorded in writing by the staff of MOCA and maintained with the written requests. The records of persons who have made such a request will be maintained by MOCA to the extent necessary for legal or liability purposes.
