A cookie is a small piece of information that a web site stores on your computer. It is retrieved automatically whenever you return and some of its contents are stored in log files that are then used to generate periodic statistical reports. These reports help us to evaluate and improve our web sites by tracking global indicators such as the total number of visitors, total pages viewed, most popular documents retrieved, etc.
Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to alert you when one is being sent. However, some parts of the OSNPPH web site may not work properly if you choose not to accept cookies. For additional information on cookies, see the Help instructions in your browser.
While visiting the OSNPPH web site, you may be invited to join listservs and enter information into databases. The information gathered in these listservs and databases is collected on a voluntary basis. Personally identifying information you choose to post on the listservs or in the databases is stored online and may be accessible to anyone on the Internet.
Although the use of this information is subject to strict guidelines, and is in some cases password-protected, we cannot guarantee that all visitors will abide by the guidelines of use. If you encounter a problem, please contact us immediately.
OSNPPH does not sell, rent, lease, or lend any personally identifying information to outside organizations or groups. In the exceptional case of a request by law enforcement authorities to view our web site's log files, no attempt at identifying individual visitors to our site will occur unless a judicial order is received as well.
We encourage people of all ages to visit the public areas of our website. However, the purpose of this site is primarily as a professional communication tool utilized by nutrition professionals practicing in public health. It is therefore expected that individuals under the age of 18 will not be signing up for any of our listservs or registering in the OSNPPH's databases.
