NemoursEducation.org and its affiliate sites are designed and intended for use by adults, and are not intended for, or designed to be used by children under the age of 18. Persons under the age of 18 should not submit any personal information to us. We do not collect personally identifiable information from any person we know to be under the age of 18.
Nemours does not accept advertising or sponsorship from outside vendors. We do not share or sell any information about NemoursEducation.org users. Although we are affiliated with various health care organizations, we do not share any information with them regarding NemoursEducation.org users. We do not engage in any "co-branding" of health content with any providers outside of Nemours. NemoursEducation.org does not select content based upon relationships with outside vendors or business partners.
IP (Internet Protocol) addresses are collected for the purpose of analyzing aggregate traffic statistics. An IP address is a set of numbers assigned to your computer every time you connect to the Internet. An IP address is not unique to a given computer, but rather, to a given Internet connection. Through IP address analysis we cannot determine where our users live, but we can determine if a large number of visitors originate from a given organization or ISP (Internet Service Provider, like America Online or Earthlink). We cannot determine the identities of those visitors, but when viewed in aggregate we can gauge the amount of traffic coming to the site, the most popular areas, and the amount of time spent by our visitors. We do not sell or share IP address information with any vendors or affiliates. We do not make any attempt to trace the identities of people reading our Web site.
Security and Encryption
The information available to the public on NemoursEducation.org is presented in an unencrypted format with the exception of conference registration. Information entered by users on the conference registration form will be transmitted to NemoursEducation.org via a secure environment with 128-bit encryption. Any portion of the site designed for secure communications will have a URL (Web address) that begins with "https://", as opposed to "http://".
Users are asked to supply personal information (name, address, occupation, specialty, phone, email) when registering for upcoming Nemours conferences or registering to view content for CE credit on NemoursEducation.org. This information is necessary for Nemours to comply with guidelines set forth by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) in granting Category I AMA credit to physicians. This information is also used in aggregate to help guide the editorial staff of NemoursEducation.org in selecting content that may be of interest to users. Personal information is stored in a secure database not accessible from the Internet. We do not sell or share personal information with any vendors or affiliates.
