World Health Medical School is the sole owner of the information collected on
the World Health Medical School site.
During registration a user gives contact information including the username,
password, name and email address. We use this information to contact the
user about services on our site for which he has expressed interest.
We request information from the user on our information form. A user must
provide contact information (such as name, email, and shipping address) and financial
information (such as credit card number, expiration date). This information is
used to provide accurate record keeping. If there is a question, the information
is used to contact the user. The information is used in order to identify
We store information that we collect through cookies and log files to create
a profile of our users. We do not share your profile with other third parties.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information
about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally
identifiable information while on our site. We use both session ID cookies
and persistent cookies. For the session ID cookie, once users close the
browser, the cookie simply terminates. A persistent cookie is a small text
file stored on the user's hard drive for an extended period of time. Persistent
cookies can be removed by following Internet browser help file directions.
By setting a cookie on our site, users would not have to log in a password more
than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If users reject the cookie,
they may still use our site.
Like most standard Web site servers we use log files. This includes internet
protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit
pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends,
administer the site, track user's movement in the aggregate, and gather broad
demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked
to personally identifiable information.
We send all new members a welcoming email to verify password and username. Established
members will occasionally receive information on products, services, and a newsletter.
Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the option to not receive
these types of communications.
If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information
such as name and email address. Out of respect for our users privacy we
provide a way to opt-out of these communications. Please see the Choice
and Opt-out sections.
On rare occasions it is necessary to send out a strictly service related announcement.
For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance we might
send users an email. Generally, users may not opt-out of these communications,
though they can deactivate their account. However, these communications
are not promotional in nature.
We communicate with users on a regular basis to provide requested services and
in regards to issues relating to their account we reply via email or phone, in
accordance with the users wishes.
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose
personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief
that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a
court order or legal process served on our Web site.
Third Party Intermediaries
We use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing
company to bill users for donations. These companies do not retain, share,
store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
In the event World Health Medical School goes through a transition, such as a
merger, being acquired by another organization, or selling a portion of its assets,
users' personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred.
Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter and promotional
communications may opt-out of receiving these communications by replying to
unsubscribe in the subject line in the email or email us at
From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys. Participation
in these surveys is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice
whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically
includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic
information such as zip code. Anonymous survey information will be used
for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site. Users' personally identifiable information is not shared with third parties
unless we give prior notice and choice. Though we may use an intermediary to
conduct these surveys or contests, they may not use users' personally identifiable
information for any secondary purposes.
Chat Rooms, Message Boards, and Public Forums
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information
online - for example on message boards, through e-mail, or in chat areas - that
information can be collected and used by others. In short, by posting personal
information online that is publicly accessible, you may receive unsolicited messages
from other parties in return.
This Web site takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When
users submit sensitive information via the Web site, their information is protected
both online and off-line.
When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information such
as credit card number, that information is encrypted and is protected with the
best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page,
such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape
Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked,
or open, when users are just 'surfing'.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do
everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users'
information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted
in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific
job are granted access to personally identifiable information. Our employees
must use password-protected screen-savers when they leave their desk. When they
return, they must re-enter their password to re-gain access to user information.
Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy
practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, our
employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy,
and what they can do to ensure our users' information is protected. Finally, the
servers that store personally identifiable information are in a secure
environment, in a locked facility. If users have any questions about the
security at our Web site, users can send an email to
Supplementation of Information
In order for this Web site to properly fulfill its obligation to users it is
necessary for us to supplement the information we receive with information from
3rd party sources.
Correcting/Updating/Deleting/Deactivating Personal Information
If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as zip code,
phone, email or postal address), or if a user no longer desires our service, we
provide a way to correct, update or delete/deactivate users' personally
identifiable information. This can usually be done at the member information
page or by emailing us at email@example.com.
Notification of Changes
privacy statement, the homepage, and other places we deem appropriate so our
users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under
what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.
