Information Automatically Collected & Stored
When you browse through any website, certain personal information about you can be collected. We automatically collect and temporarily store the following information about your visit:

- the date and time of your visit
- the pages you visited
- the address of the website you came from when you came to visit
We use this information for statistical purposes and to help us make our site more useful to visitors. In some instances, our partners and advertisers appearing at our site may use their own cookies to collect and store data about your visit. Preference and options configurations in your browser determine if and how a cookie will be accepted. You can change those configurations on your computer if you desire. By changing your preferences, you can accept all cookies, you can be notified when a cookie is set, or you can reject all cookies. If you do so and cookies are disabled, you may be required to reenter your information more often and certain features of our site may be unavailable. Unless it is specifically stated otherwise, no additional information will be collected about you.
Personally Provided Information
You do not have to give us personal information to visit our websites. If you choose to provide us with additional information about yourself through an e-mail message, form, survey, etc., we will only maintain the information as long as needed to respond to your question or to fulfill the stated purpose of the communication. However, all communications addressed to Nebraska Medicine Webmaster are maintained, as required by law, for historical purposes. These communications are archived on a monthly basis, but are also protected by the Privacy Act, which restricts our use of them, yet permits certain disclosures.
Nebraska Medicine does not disclose, give, sell or transfer any personal information about our visitors, unless required for law enforcement or statute.
For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, we employ software programs to monitor traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. In the event of authorized law enforcement investigations, and pursuant to any required legal process, information from these sources may be used to help identify an individual.
Systems of Records
Information originally collected in traditional paper systems can be submitted electronically, i.e., electronic commerce transactions and information updates about eligibility benefits. Electronically submitted information is maintained and destroyed pursuant to the Federal Records Act, and in some cases may be subject to the Privacy Act. If information that you submit is to be used in a Privacy Act system of records, there will be a Privacy Act Notice provided.
