Effective December 10, 2004.
Although you may use some of the functions of the healthsearches.org website without registration, certain services on our website, such as “Ask Us A Question” or subscription to our online newsletter, require registration. If you use the healthsearches.org website without registering, the only information we may collect will be Non-Personal Information.
PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU
||A. Newsletters & Emails to You
As you use the healthsearches.org website, you may be given the option of subscribing to recurring informational newsletters via email from the healthsearches.org website. Emails to you will be of a general nature and will not disclose your unique health characteristics.
In order to subscribe to our newsletter via email, we need your contact information, such as name and email address. Instructions regarding options for renewal and un-subscribing to the newsletter will be provided in the healthsearches.org website and/or in the newsletter.
In some cases, when you click on a link from the healthsearches.org website or our online newsletter to a website other than the healthsearches.org website or our online newsletter, your browser may be momentarily directed to the website of a third party, which, acting on behalf of the healthsearches.org website or our online newsletter, may note or "count" your response before re-directing your browser to its proper destination; this re-direction process will not be apparent to you.
We and the healthsearches.org website may offer users the opportunity to register for paid subscription services to our newsletter. The subscription service may have its own Service Agreement that governs your use of the service and the information we collect to provide the service, including your credit card information. The Service Agreement will be disclosed to you at the time of registration for that subscription service.
||C. Emails You Send to the healthsearches.org Website
We, the healthsearches.org website, and our online newsletter are committed to protecting the privacy of children.

On occasion, in order to gather feedback about our site, we or contractors acting on our behalf may conduct email invitations to participate in online market research surveys.
