Web Site Privacy Policy

The Medical Foundation of North Carolina is firmly committed to protecting your privacy. We do not collect personally identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information to us. Providing such information is strictly voluntary. This policy is your guide to how we will handle information we learn about you from your visit to this site.

Use of Links

Throughout our Web pages, we provide links to other servers which may contain information of interest to our readers. We take no responsibility for, and exercise no control over, the organizations, views, or accuracy of the information contained on other servers.

Creating a text link from your Web site to our site does not require permission. If you have a link you'd like us to consider adding to our Web site, please send an email to giving@med.unc.edu with the subject "Link request."

Use of Text and Images

If you would like to publish information that you find on our Web site, please send your request to giving@med.unc.edu. Where text or images are posted on our site with the permission of the original copyright holder, a copyright statement appears at the bottom of the page.

Accessibility

This Web site is designed to be accessible to visitors with disabilities and to comply with federal guidelines concerning accessibility. We welcome your comments. If you have suggestions on how to make the site more accessible, please contact us at giving@med.unc.edu

Information Collected

We collect and store only the following information about you when you visit our site: the name of the domain from which you access the Internet (for example, aol.com, if you are connecting from an America Online account, or princeton.edu if you are connecting from Princeton University's domain), the date and time you access our site, and the Internet address of the Web site from which you linked to our site.

We use the information we collect to measure the number of visitors to the different sections of our site and to help us make our site more useful to visitors.

Online Profile Updates

If you complete the Profile update form and share your personally identifying information, this information will be used only to provide you with more targeted content. We may use your contact information to send further information about our organization or to contact you when necessary. You may always opt out of receiving future mailings; see the "Opt Out" section below.

Sending Us an Email

You may decide to send us personally identifying information, for example, in an email message containing a question or comment, or by filling out a Web form that provides us with such information. We use personally identifying information from email primarily to respond to your requests. We may forward your email to other employees who are better able to answer your questions. We may also use your email to contact you in the future about our programs that may be of interest.

If you sign up for one of our email lists, we will only send you the kinds of information you have requested. We will not share your name or email address with any outside parties. Again, you may always opt out of receiving future mailings; see the "Opt Out" section below.

We want to be very clear: We will not obtain personally identifying information about you when you visit our site unless you choose to provide such information to us. Providing such information is strictly voluntary. Except as might be required by law, we do not share any information we receive with any outside parties.

Opt-Out or Change Your Contact Information

Our site provides users the opportunity to use a special online form to opt out of receiving communications from us. You cannot remove yourself from our database, but you can prevent unwanted communication. You may choose to receive only specific communications or none at all. You may also update contact information that you previously provided to us with another online form.
