Privacy Policy

WVMI has a firm commitment to privacy. All WVMI employees are trained to protect the confidentiality of all information with which we work. That commitment extends to this Web site.

Collecting user statistics. This site automatically collects and records limited information about each visitor. That information includes (1) the date and time of your visit, (2) the pages you visited, (3) your computer and browser type (4) and your country. For registered campaign participants, we do collect information on educational resources downloaded. This includes the information provided at the time of registration. WVMI uses the collected information only to evaluate this Web site statistically and the overall effectiveness of the campaign. We do not give or sell the information to other parties. If you do not wish to have such information collected, please contact hhqi@wvmi.org to de-register (opt out) of the campaign.

Links. This site contains links to other Web sites. WVMI is not responsible for their privacy practices or content. When leaving this Web site, WVMI encourages you to read the privacy statements of each Web site you visit.

Forms and other input methods. At various times, this Web site may use forms and e-mail links to collect information. WVMI will use any information we collect for internal purposes only, such as mailing newsletters and other materials you request. In addition, some areas of this Web site may require registration before they can be used. We will protect the confidentiality of any information collected via forms and e-mail for registration and all other purposes.

Contacting us via e-mail. When contacting WVMI via e-mail, please note that e-mail messages are no more secure than postcards; an unscrupulous person could intercept your message and read it. For that reason we request that you do not include personal information (Medicare and Social Security numbers, medical history, raw data, etc.) when sending a request, comment or question to this Web site. Please contact us by mail or phone when it is necessary to disclose sensitive information in order for us to serve your needs.

Disclaimer. WVMI provides the information on this site as a public service only. The information should not be relied upon as medical advice. When seeking medical advice, it is always best to talk to your physician. WVMI assumes no responsibility for errors or omissions on this Web site or the sites linked to it.

We reserve the right to amend this policy. Any changes to this policy will be posted here.
