The Foundation for the History of Women in Medicine (Foundation) has created this Privacy Statement in order to demonstrate our organization's strong commitment to privacy. We want to make this website as interesting and helpful as possible while at the same time respecting your privacy. The Foundation uses its best efforts to protect the privacy of its on-line visitors.
In general, you can visit the Foundation on the World Wide Web without telling us who you are or revealing any of your personal information. To gauge the effectiveness of our website, we do collect some non-individually-identifiable generic information about our visitors. Our web servers automatically recognize a visitor's domain name (such as .com, .edu, etc.), the web page from which a visitor enters our website, which pages a visitor visits on our site, and how much time a visitor spends on each page. This information does not reveal a visitor's identity. We aggregate this information and use it to evaluate and improve our website.
There are times, however, when we may need information from you. The Foundation only gathers personally identifiable data, such as names, addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses when voluntarily submitted by a visitor to our website. The personal information that we collect is used solely by the Foundation in order to respond to your inquiry; your personal information is not sold or transferred to third parties. The Foundation does not send unsolicited mail. The Foundation, however, will respond to email that it receives.
The Foundation reserves the right to use or disclose any information as needed to satisfy any law, regulation or legal request, to protect the integrity of the website, to fulfill your requests, or to cooperate in any law enforcement investigation or an investigation on a matter of public safety without further notice to you.
In order to improve the information and services the Foundation can offer you, we may opt to expand our capabilities for obtaining information about users in the future, and from time to time, it may be necessary for the Foundation to change or modify this Privacy Statement. We suggest that you check here periodically to learn about any changes to this Privacy Statement. Rest assured, however, that any changes or modifications that may occur to this Privacy Statement will not alter how we handle previously collected information.

Parental Consent for Children's Information
The Foundation website is not intended or expected to attract children. The Foundation will not knowingly or intentionally collect personal identifiable information about a child. Under the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, no website operator may require, as a condition of participation in an activity, that child under the age of thirteen (13) disclose more information than is reasonably necessary. The Foundation abides by this requirement.

In no event will the Foundation be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, exemplary, punitive or consequential damages arising from your use of this website or for any other claim related in any way to your use of this website. Because some states or jurisdictions do no allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states or jurisdictions the Foundation's liability will be limited to the greatest extent permitted by law.
