Diabetes Task Force Solutions Inc. ("DTFS") respects the privacy of users of its Web sites,
www.diabetestaskforce.com and www.virtualdiabetescenter.com. DTSF does not disclose, give, sell, or transfer any
personal information about visitors to www.diabetestaskforce.com and www.virtualdiabetescenter.com unless required
to do so by law.
DTSF is especially concerned about protecting the privacy of children. DTSF encourages parents and teachers to stay involved with and in control of children's Internet explorations. It is particularly important for parents to offer guidance to their children about providing personal information online.
DTSF automatically collects a limited amount of information about the use of its Web site, primarily for statistical purposes (that is, to measure the numbers of visitors to various sections of the site). This information may also be helpful when considering changes to www.diabetestaskforce.com and www.virtualdiabetescenter.com, to make the site more useful to visitors.
The following information about users of the DTSF Web sites are
collected and stored automatically:
When a user visits a Web site, the Web site's server generates a piece of information known as a "cookie" and places it on the user's computer. Some cookies remain on a user's computer after the user has ended his/her Web site visit. These types of cookies are called "persistent" cookies. They collect personal information about a user and allow the user's computer to be recognized in the future. Nonpersistent cookies, or "session cookies," are erased by a user's computer after a period of inactivity or when the user closes his/her Internet browser. Session cookies do not collect any personal information about a user. They serve technical purposes, such as allowing seamless navigation through a Web site. Session cookies are stored in memory and are only available during an active browser session.
When inquiries are sent to the DTSF Web sites by e-mail, the question(s) and the
e-mail address of the sender are stored electronically to allow time for a response
to be researched, written, and sent. Unless otherwise required by law, DTSF will
not identify anyone who sends questions or comments to its Web site. DTSF does not
collect information that will allow users to be identified personally, unless they
choose to provide such information.
If children send questions or comments to the DTSF Web sites and include their name and/or home mailing address as part of their message, the information will be used only to respond to them personally. Providing this type of information is optional, and DTSF suggests that children obtain their parents' permission before providing any information online--to the DTSF Web site or any other Web site.
The DTSF Web site has links to many other Web sites. DTSF cannot guarantee the privacy or security of information users provide to linked, external Web sites.
