A typical visit to our website does not require a user to submit personal information.
However, if you send us an e-mail, with your contact information, we will inquire
if we may send information to you. If you reply in the affirmative, your name and
contact information will be entered into a database for potential use in a future
mailing or e-mail distribution.
Information you submit may be routinely shared with our parent organization, BJC
HealthCare as they often distribute our materials, or with the Washington University
School of Medicine if you are looking for a physician referral. Other than these
two organizations, we will only forward your personal information to organizations
working on our behalf. We urge you not to provide any confidential information about
you or your health to us via electronic communication. If you do so, it is at your
own risk. Although we attempt to maintain our computer network in a secure manner
to protect the content of your messages, we cannot provide absolute assurance that
the contents of your e-mail will not become accessible to individuals or entities
that are not authorized to access your information.
It is our desire that each on-line visitor experience an optimum experience in finding
medical information and learning about BC services. In working toward that goal,
we count our visitors and keep track of where our visitors go throughout the website.
To do this, we must use software called a “cookie.” The “cookie” maintains numbers
in aggregate form, and does not obtain personal information about our visitors.
This information helps us know what sections of our website are visited frequently,
so we can enhance those sections and ensure they’re up-to-date. None of the research
we conduct is shared with companies unrelated to BC or BJC HealthCare.
