Collection of Data for Routine Transactions
Lurie Children's is committed to protecting your online privacy. In general, you can visit our site without revealing any personal information. However, in some cases, for example, if you purchase items from our online store or if you enroll for classes, you may be required to provide personal information as needed to complete the business transaction. Be assured that, except when legally required to do so, we do not disclose or release to outside parties any information collected in this way from website users.
We collect and log the IP address of all visitors for the purpose of administering our system and gathering aggregate information about how our site is being used, including the pages visitors are viewing. We do not associate IP addresses with records containing personal information. We will use IP address information, however, to personally identify you in order to enforce our legal rights or when required to do so by law enforcement authorities.
How We Use "Cookies"
Visitors to our site must be aware that any messages sent to us via normal e-mail (not encrypted) are subject to interception by another Internet user while in transit to us. Furthermore, it is not the policy of Lurie Children's to accept protected health information via e-mail. In fact, routine e-mails should never be sent that contain private or confidential information of any kind that, if intercepted, could be damaging to the sender.
