Your privacy is important to SHRC, and SHRC is committed to maintaining the privacy of personally identifiable

information. SHRC has developed this privacy policy to inform you of its policy about collecting and using such information

on its website.

I. Information SHRC gathers

SHRC collects and uses certain information on its website. This information includes your IP address, information about

your browser (i.e., whether you are using Netscape, Internet Explorer, etc.), and information about your Internet Service

Provider (i.e., AOL, PacBell). An IP address (Internet Protocol Address) is a unique number that is used to represent every

single computer in a network. All computers on the Internet have a unique IP address. None of the foregoing information

will be used by SHRC in any way, or in connection with any other information, to identify you personally.

SHRC may collect information about you through various on-line forms that you may voluntarily complete. Completion of

these forms is entirely optional. If you supply any personally identifiable information to us on these forms (e.g. name/

address/e-mail address), SHRC will not use this information to contact you unless you have specifically stated that we

may do so.

II. How the information is used

SHRC uses the statistical information gathered about you and all of its users for internal statistical purposes only, e.g., to

track where users go on the website. This information is not linked to specifically identifiable individuals. This type of

information will be used to aid SHRC in adding information to its website that will be useful for site users and that will

improve the performance of our website.

Any personally identifiable information which you voluntarily and knowingly submit to SHRC will be used, with your

permission, to send you health information and health updates, both general information and information focused on

specific health matters, such as, for example, high blood pressure. Your personally identifiable information may also be

used to send you timely appointment reminders for specific health-related tests, such as pap smears. Submission by you

of any personally identifiable health information is completely voluntary.

law. If SHRC decides to change the type of information it collects, how we use it, or under what circumstances, if any, we

may disclose it, we will post these changes on our homepage so that our users will be aware of these changes. Users will

have 30 days after we post the change within which to decide whether or not SHRC may use their information in
