Privacy and Medical Policy



Protecting your privacy is very important to us. Our Web site links to other sites.  Once you leave this site, you are subject to the privacy policy for the site(s) you are visiting. We do not collect any personally identifiable information (PII) about you during your visit to our site unless you choose to provide it to us.

The underlying web server software and content management system will collect data about your visit.  The type of information and way it is used is consistent with that seen in other web sites which provide information about medical studies online (i.e. see the notice from  United State’s National Institutes of Health site.)

When visitors send email contact and messages containing personal information to us, they are sent over commercially available mailing systems.  We use reasonable care for protection of such information, such as password-protection online, physical protection (i.e. door locks) of such files, and encryption for cases where files are stored on laptop systems.  We believe that this protection will be sufficient to protect e-mails against disclosure, based on currently available information concerning data breaches from major financial institutions, we can not identify breach of data as an impossibility.




The information provided using this Web site is only intended to be general summary information to the public.

It is not our intention to provide specific medical advice to users of the this web site.  Instead, we provide information concerning the current status of peer reviewed medical studies, as well as medical information provided by major public health agencies and treatment centers.  We urge users to consult with a qualified health care professional for diagnosis and answers to their personal medical questions.
