Links to third party websites

Our website may contain links to other websites that are outside our control and are not covered by our Privacy Policy. If you access other sites using the links provided, the operators of these sites may collect information from you that will be used by them in accordance with their privacy policy, which may differ from ours.

Access to any other website linked to this website is at your own risk and Breast Cancer Haven is not responsible for the accuracy, availability or reliability of any information, goods, data, opinions, advice or statements made available on these websites.

By communicating electronically with us, you acknowledge and agree to our processing of personal data in this way.
