The Vital Aging Network is committed to protecting the privacy and security of visitors to our website. The following summarizes our policies for gathering and sharing information.
- We do not collect information concerning individual visitors unless that information is voluntarily disclosed, for example by filling out an online form.
- Information gathered is used only for the purpose specified. We will not sell, trade, or share your personal information with any other party.
- At any time, users who have signed up for a specific service can have their names removed from the relevant mailing list.
Normal Website Usage. The only information we collect from a normal website visit is the name of your Internet service provider, the browser and type of machine you are using, the website that referred you to us, the pages you request and the date and time of those requests. Your personal information is not attached to this information. For example, the Vital Aging Network tracks which pages are most popular among visitors as a whole, but we do not track information on which pages an individual visitor might look at during a visit to our site. We do not collect any other information-such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, or phone number-without your knowledge and permission. All information that we collect is used for internal review only and not shared with third parties. We use this information to generate statistics and measure site activity to improve the usefulness of the site to our visitors.
Opting out. Persons who join our e-mail list and provide an e-mail address may receive e-mails from the Vital Aging Network with information about our programs and services. Each e-mail message includes an option to remove yourself from the mailing list and you may also opt out by sending e-mail to unsubscribe.
Outside links. This site contains hypertext links to other websites. The Vital Aging Network is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.
