What information do we collect? How do we use it?

When you enter into a transaction with us (registering for an event, buying a product, seeking information, or participating in advocacy activities), we may need to know specific information in order to process your request.

Our site's forms may require you to give us contact information (like your name, e-mail, and address). We may use the contact information from these registration and survey forms to send you information about other programs or events of the National Health Council. You may opt-out of receiving future mailings. See the choice/opt-out section below.

We may use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to the site, new services, or features offered by the National Health Council, and special offers and information we think you will find valuable. If you would rather not receive this information, please contact us through one of the channels identified in the choice/opt-out section.

We also collect anonymous, non-identifiable information about visitors. When you visit our site, our server automatically records your domain (service provider), operating system, and web browser type/version as well as the time and date of your visit on a particular page. The information automatically recorded by our server is used only for statistical purposes so that we can manage our site and better serve our visitors. Our server does not and cannot record identifiable information such as your e-mail address.



"Cookies" are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive. Our cookies do not contain any personally identifying information. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually adjust your browser to prevent them. This could limit your ability to use certain features on our site, however.

Our site uses cookies to uniquely identify users' machines so that we can monitor site usage, traffic, and trends. Cookies also may be used for features such as keeping track of the contents of a shopping cart or helping to deliver more personalized content.


Online Security

When you are asked to provide personal, private, and/or financial information (such as a credit card number), we use state-of-the-art security to safeguard your data. The secure server software, SSL (secure sockets layer), encrypts or encodes all information you enter before it is sent to us. Furthermore, all of the customer transactional data we collect is protected against unauthorized access with the use of digital certificates. Digital certificates for the National Health Council are issued by Trustwave, a trusted provider. To learn more about our online security, simply click the "security" icon (usually a padlock) at the bottom of your browser window.


Does the National Health Council disclose the information it collects to third parties?

While the National Health Council does not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others, it may at times, to the extent allowed by law, share member/user information with reputable third parties (vendors, contractors, etc.) who perform services or marketing on our behalf.
