Wisconsin Medical Home Initiative is strongly committed to protecting the privacy of its online users. We do not collect personally identifiable information about individuals, except when it is knowingly provided by such individuals. We do not share voluntarily provided, personally identifiable information for any purpose other than the use described at the point of collection.
We continuously try to improve the security of our information systems. While we have many security measures to protect electronically transmitted information and frequently review and try to improve the security of our site, in today's computing environment, no organization can completely guarantee that a third party won't gain (illegal or inappropriate) access to information provided via this website.
Log file data
We collect some basic log file data about site visitors. This information includes domain names, website traffic patterns and server usage statistics. This information is used for site management and administration and to improve the content and overall performance of our site.
We use transient (temporary) “cookies” during a site visit but do not gather information from a user’s computer. The “cookie,” which is a small text file stored in temporary memory, is used to measure the effectiveness of the website, and to comply with subscription preferences that our visitors have given us. No personally identifying data is collected and the “cookie” is erased when the visit ends.
The site also uses persistent “cookies” on a limited basis as part of our web advertising, to capture demographic and other behavioral information; no personally identifying information is captured. Users may opt out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising through their browser settings or by adding an Opt-Out Browser Add-On (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/). You can turn off or erase cookies in your browser preferences at any time without affecting site performance, if you wish to do so.
How we use the information
Wisconsin Medical Home Initiative uses the information you provide to fulfill your online request, facilitate customer service and inform you of our programs and events.
We do not rent or sell visitors' personal information to third parties, such as marketers.
We do not share any personally identifiable information we may collect in surveys, although we may share aggregated survey results with analysts to help improve the website. The aggregate data cannot be used to identify individuals and participation in any survey is voluntary.
It is possible that we could be required to disclose personally identifiable user information in response to a search warrant, subpoena, court order or pursuant to applicable law; that can happen to any organization keeping records. We may also disclose personally identifiable user information to protect our legal rights and the security or integrity of our website, or to avoid liability. Those kinds of disclosures are highly unlikely, but possible.
This site has links to other sites we think may be of interest to our visitors. Their purpose is to provide visitors with convenient access to other sites that might interest them. A link to another site does not imply an endorsement of the site's content or services. We are not responsible for the content or for the privacy practices of sites not owned by WiSMHI. We encourage you to be aware of that when you leave our site and to read privacy statements at any sites that collect personally identifiable data.
