Personal Identification Information

We may request personal identification information from a viewer in connection with their use of, or participation in, scheduling appointments, communications, requests for information or suggestions, and in connection with other activities, services or resources we make available on this site. In all of these cases, we will collect personal identification information from you only if you voluntarily submit such information to us. We will never intentionally disclose any personal identification information about an individual user (such as, for example, full name, street address, telephone number, or email address) to any third party without having received the viewer’s permission.  We do not sell or otherwise share this data with third parties.  Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process.  We may share with others aggregated demographic information not linked to any personally identifiable information.

To Whom We Disclose Personal Information

We may disclose the information we collect from or about an individual:

  • to our affiliates;
  • to service providers who work on our behalf;
  • as required by law;
  • when required to protect our rights or your safety or the safety of others, or to detect, prevent, or respond to misuse of our site.

In addition, we may share non-identifying information, such as reports on user demographics and traffic patterns, with third parties, including researchers.

Chat Rooms, Message Boards, and Public Forums

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online – for example on message boards, public forums, or in chat areas – that information can be collected and used by others. In short, by posting personal information online that is publicly accessible, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.

Only organization employees who need the information to perform a specific job is granted access to personally identifiable information. Finally, the servers that store personally identifiable information are in a secure environment.
