Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting, sponsored by The Hospital & Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania. Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice that explains our online information practices.

At you can participate in one of our message boards. To protect your privacy, we do not collect personally identifiable information.

We do, however, collect certain non-personally identifiable information, such as the type of browser you are using (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using, (e.g., Windows '95 or Mac OS), and the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g., America Online, Earthlink).

We sometimes use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect to analyze site usage and improve the design and content of our site.

We will disclose information we maintain when required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. We also may disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency's request.

Agents and contractors of The Hospital & Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania who have access to personally identifiable information are required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Statement by, for example, not using the information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for The Hospital & Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania. Apart from agents and contractors, The Hospital & Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania will not sell or otherwise transfer personally identifiable information to other third parties.

Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Statement. Inadvertent disclosures may result, for example, when third parties misrepresent their identities in asking the site for access to personally identifiable information about themselves for purposes of correcting possible factual errors in the data.

COLLECTION OF INFORMATION BY THIRD-PARTY SITES AND SPONSORS contains links to other sites whose information practices may be different than ours. Visitors should consult the other sites' privacy notices, as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.

To enhance your experience with our site, many of our web pages use "cookies." Cookies are text files we place in your computer's browser to store your preferences. Our cookies do not contain personal information. They do enable us to relate your use of the site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided to our site.
We use cookies to understand site usage and to improve the content and offerings on our sites. For example, we may use cookies to personalize your experience at our website (e.g. to save your password in password-protected areas).

We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect online.
