Personal privacy is an important initiative to OSF Healthcare Foundation. We hold the following privacy principles as being critical to our Internet privacy policy:

OSF Healthcare Foundation does not sell, trade or otherwise convey the name, street address, telephone number, e-mail address or other personal identifiers supplied by visitors of our web sites to outside parties. Personal information that a visitor submits to us while participating in the more advanced interactive healthcare features of our web sites will be used for the sole purpose for which it was submitted.

OSF Healthcare Foundation compiles non-personal information from our web site visitors to provide regularly updated statistics. Such information allows us to better assess which resources best meet our visitors' needs.

OSF Healthcare Foundation provides an appropriate level of security in our computer systems, databases and communication networks to protect web site visitors' information contained in our systems.

Please be advised that electronic mail and other Internet communications channels are not necessarily secure against interception. While we take precautions, such as encrypting communications where appropriate, if your communication is very sensitive, or includes information like your diagnosis or medical history, you might want to send it by postal mail instead.
