This statement applies only to this Web site.  If you are a Wills Eye patient, we also make available our HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices for review online.

You may visit our Web site without sharing any personal information about yourself. If you send us e-mail or subscribe to one of our on-line publications, you will be asked to submit personal information such as your name, postal and email addresses, telephone number or other information. We will use this information for replying to your message, forwarding the requested material or for determining what information we should develop next for our Web site.

We will not send you email newsletters or other electronic communications unless you ask to receive them.

Wills Eye maintains statistics that show the total number of visitors to our Web sites, requests received for pages on the Web sites and what domains or Internet service providers those requests come from (such as aol.com).

Please note that Wills Eye will not respond to any question concerning a specific medical or health condition. If you submit such a request you will receive a standard response that you should consult with your own health care professional. However, due to the nature of electronic communications, we cannot and do not provide any assurances that the contents of your e-mail will not become known or accessible to third parties. WE URGE YOU NOT TO PROVIDE ANY CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOU OR YOUR HEALTH TO US VIA ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION. If you do so, it is at your own risk.

Wills Eye does not share any individualized data gathered online with people outside of Wills Eye unless you specifically authorize us to do so, except in emergency situations relating to your medical treatment, or unless it is required by law.
