1. About the Content of the Preemie Care Website.

This site was prepared as a service to the parents of premature children community. PreemieCare makes no warranty, expressed or implied, or assumes any legal liability or responsibility for the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information or product. Reference herein to any specific commercial products, process, or service by trade name, trademark manufacturer, or otherwise, does not necessarily constitute or imply its endorsement, recommendation, or favoring by Preemie Care.

2. Information Collected During Your Use of the Preemie Care site

In order to communicate with parties interested in participating in Preemie Care, visitors may be required to provide us with contact information (such as your name and email address) and demographic information (like your zip code).

Certain information, such as an email address, is collected in order to contact you about your interest in Preemie Care, but Preemie Care does not share web site usage information about visitors to this web site with anyone.

If you decide to purchase products through MOST, Preemie Care's parent organization, MOST will need to collect certain financial information, such as your credit card number, credit card expiration date, and billing address ("Financial Information"). Financial Information that is collected is used strictly to complete purchase transactions. MOST does not share Financial Information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete a transaction.

3. Our Use of Your Information

We use visitor contact information from the submitted web forms in order to send you information about our organization and provide resources that you request. Contact information is also used to contact you whenever necessary. We may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer our web site, or in some circumstances, to help protect ourselves from fraud.

To improve our ability to support families of premature babies, one of our volunteer representatives may contact you in order to explain the activities of Preemie Care, determine how best to help your family, and provide insight into local resources once you submit contact information. If you do not wish to be contacted by a Preemie Care volunteer, you must contact the Preemie Care office in New York directly at (631) 859-1110.

4. Our Disclosure of Your Information

We never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described in this Privacy Policy without also providing you an opportunity to opt out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses. Preemie Care will never willfully sell, lease, or rent any personally identifiable information about you to any third party.

Preemie Care offers features and services on our site where information visitors send may be publicly available, such as our parent stories. Should you choose to contribute to this feature, you may have a Preemie Care volunteer contact you as a follow-up. Publicly available information means information you disclose in articles for inclusion on the website and may be available to the public on our website; therefore, if you do not wish to be identified, we recommend using discretion in revealing personal identifying information.

Preemie Care cannot ensure that all of your personally identifiable information will never be disclosed in ways not described in this Privacy Policy. For example, we may be required to disclose personally identifiable information to the government or by court order under certain circumstances. In addition, you authorize us to disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate.

The Preemie Care website contains links to other sites. Preemie Care is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such web sites.

5. Security

In order to maximize protection of your information, the Preemie Care Site Manager uses security technology to protect your data from use, misuse, or alteration by unauthorized third parties. Currently, we use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol on all MOST store purchases to protect your data and secure your transactions. SSL encrypts your credit card number and identifying information as it is transmitted over the Internet. Of course, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure, and Preemie Care does not warrant that your information will be absolutely secure.
