     |  Who Funds our Web Site  |  Our Health Information  |  Who Oversees our Web Site

    The VNA of Santa Cruz Web site is designed to provide useful information about our program and to connect users with physicians, facilities and services.

    Our Web site does not promote or sell products of any kind. We do hope that the information provided encourages the visitor to consider using the VNA of Santa Cruz for medical care, or that visitors might decide to join our organization as an employee, volunteer or donor.

    We keep track of visits to our Web site via an automatic monitoring program that tells us, among other things, how many visits are made to the site; the time of day and date of those visits; and the areas visited. This information is used to evaluate the effectiveness of our site and the effectiveness of any promotion of our site. It helps us answer questions such as these: Are we providing information on our Web site that is useful? Which information is most useful? How have we made you aware that our Web site exists?

    The monitoring program does not provide us with any personal information about a visitor. We cannot discern the name, address or any other personal information about visitors to our site.

    If we wish to gather such personal information, it will be requested via a form on the site that the user voluntarily completes and submits. The form will describe the way in which the information will be used.
