The Louisiana Health Care Quality Forum currently collects three types of information from its Web site: (1) your IP (Internet Protocol) address; (2) information voluntarily submitted on donations, or emails sent to the Web site administrator; and, (3) cookies if the user so chooses.
Your IP address often does not identify an individual, but rather is only a temporary name by which an individual obtains access to the Louisiana Health Care Quality Forum Web site. The Louisiana Health Care Quality Forum uses your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our web site quality. We do not use IP addresses to personally identify users. We use a log file of IP addresses to determine which areas of our site visitors like based on the volume of traffic and to better prepare future site content based on the interests of users. We do not track the usage patterns of individual users, except when they click through from emails that we send out.
Information voluntarily disclosed to the Louisiana Health Care Quality Forum either online or in writing through online forms and e-mail is added to the relevant Louisiana Health Care Quality Forum database to enable processing of the donation or registration, or for appropriate response. The Louisiana Health Care Quality Forum may distribute further relevant information to individuals identified in this way. On occasion, we also contract with third parties for co-marketing or other activities related to the Louisiana Health Care Quality Forum’s goals and objectives, and allow them to use selected member information under strict confidentiality agreements. The Louisiana Health Care Quality Forum will use its best efforts to prevent other companies or the government from obtaining your information unless required by law.
Information provided to the Louisiana Health Care Quality Forum in non-electronic form may also be used in this way. Individuals who would like to “opt out” of receiving additional communications from Louisiana Health Care Quality Forum should contact Louisiana Health Care Quality Forum to have their names removed from our lists. Corrections or other changes may also be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (225) 334-9299.
