Summary of changes

Since we adopted our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy in early 2011, the way people use VRFoundation.org and other websites under our management has evolved, along with the core technology that makes it possible. 

Our web sites served well over 1.2 million users from every country of the world. Over half of our web traffic is now mobile. We survived several nasty cyber attacks. We are now implementing new technologies to better serve and empower vitiligo patients, to create even more change in the community. To that end, we're making some key updates to our policies that we'd like to share with you.

The VRFoundation.org updated Terms of Service will take effect on February 1, 2017. Because many of you are allergic to legalese, here’s a plain English summary for your convenience.

  • First, we’ve done our very best to get rid of complex legal terms to make these policies as clear as possible, because we want you to understand what they say. 
  • Second, we clearly indicate how we collect and use information about our website visitors and survey participants, which will keep your privacy and online safety protected at all times.
  • Third, we explain how we can give you relevant content from a range of sources that is most likely to matter to you.

Here’s one thing we're not changing: VRFoundation.org is still free and open. You can use our website to:

  • obtain reliable information about vitiligo and skin health, 
  • locate vitiligo specialist or support group on the World Vitiligo Map, 
  • sign World Vitiligo Day petitions,

regardless of who you are, where you come from and what device you use to access it. 

Read the updated Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. If you have any questions about these updates, feel free to contact us -- we'd love to help!

I support the petition to designate June 25 as Vitiligo World Day and save millions of people worldwide from social isolation and persecution.
