Our Privacy Policy

Last Updated: July 2018


This Privacy Policy describes the policies and practices on the collection, use and disclosure of information that The Auxiliary of the Woman’s Board of Rush University Medical Center (“we” or “us”) collects when you visit any of our websites (the “Sites”) that link to or reference this Privacy Policy and will apply with respect to your use of the Sites and the information we collect from and after the date set forth above. By using any of our Sites, you consent to the terms of this Privacy Policy and the practices we describe below. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, you may not use any of our Sites.  If you continue to use the Sites, such use will signify your acceptance to the Privacy Policy.


What Information is Collected?

“Personal Information” means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, home or other physical address, an email address, phone number or other contact information, whether at work or at home, and if you transact business with us, financial information such as your payment method (valid credit card number, type, expiration date or other financial information) or in the case of a Content Partner, banking and other financial institution information required in order for us to compensate you.


In a few areas on our Sites, we ask you to provide Personal Information that will enable us to enhance your use of our Sites or for purposes such as facilitating correspondence with you, registering your access to certain special features of our Sites or to complete transactions. It is always your choice whether or not to provide that Personal Information. If you choose not to provide requested Personal Information, you may not be able to use certain features of the Sites.


We may also automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser, such as your IP address, cookie information, the referring domain, pages visited, search terms, and the page you request. Other information regarding your use of and interactions with our Sites and the products, services and advertisements available through or on our Sites, may also be recorded. All of such information is “Non-Personal Information.”


We may also use the Sites to collect information from your web browser about your activities over time and across third-party websites, applications or other online services (“Online Tracking Information”). Your web browser may allow you to opt-out of our collection of Online Tracking Information by selecting a “do not track” (or similar) setting. However, we do not currently have processes to address those settings or other “do not track” requests, and consequently, cannot guarantee that we will honor such requests. If you do not want us to collect this information, do not use the Sites.


How is Information Used?


We will use your Personal Information, but only in order to deliver our Sites to you; to administer your accounts with us, fulfill orders, and provide you with customer support; to send you reminders, technical notices (for example, notifications regarding updates to this Privacy Policy, the Terms of Use or other agreements with us), security alerts and other administrative messages; and to operate and improve our Sites generally. We may also periodically send you information about our various events and our promotions. If you do not want to receive such marketing communications, simply tell us when you give us your Personal Information. Or, at any time you can easily opt-out of receiving further marketing from us by contacting us and requesting to have your name removed from our marketing lists. In addition, with respect to mailings or other communications sent via email or text, you may follow the subscription management instructions contained in the messages to have your email address or phone number removed from our marketing list. All requests to unsubscribe will be handled in a prompt and efficient manner and in accordance with applicable law. Please keep in mind that if you choose not to receive marketing communications, you will continue to receive transaction and account information.


We may use the Non-Personal Information we collect for a variety of purposes, including some of the same purposes for which we use Personal Information, and in particular to operate and improve our Sites.



In many cases, the information we collect using cookies and other tools is used in non-identifiable ways, without any reference to your Personal Information. For example, we use information we collect through cookies to optimize our Sites and understand its traffic and usage patterns. In other cases, we may associate the information we collect using cookies and related technologies with your Personal Information. In that case, we will treat the combined information as collectively being Personal Information and will handle such information accordingly in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy.


When you use our Sites, we collect certain information by automated or electronic means, using technologies such as cookies. Cookies are small text files stored by your browser when you visit our Sites. We use cookies to improve our Sites and make them easier to use. Cookies permit us to recognize users and avoid repetitive requests for the same information. Most browsers will accept cookies until you change your browser settings to refuse them. We use display advertising and remarking through Google Analytics. We and third-party vendors, including Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on your past visits to our website. If you wish, you may opt-out of Google Analytics for display advertising and remarking by clicking here.


Is Information We Collect Shared or Disclosed?


In limited circumstances, your Personal Information may be disclosed to third parties. We may use agents or contractors to support or perform certain of the functions of our Sites and to generally provide services to our users. Our agents or contractors may have access to your Personal Information in that capacity.


Additionally, to enjoy certain third party offerings, features or functionality through or with any of our Sites (including online orders and reservations), you may be required to give your permission for the disclosure of your Personal Information to the applicable third party. Your activation or use of any of such third-party offerings, features or functionality will constitute your permission. In addition, certain third party terms (which may be in the form of terms of use, a privacy policy and/or other legal notifications or terms and conditions) (“Third Party Terms”) may apply. Third Party Terms will constitute an agreement between you and the applicable third party. We are not responsible for any third party offerings, features or functionality nor their use of your Personal Information, and you should carefully review Third Party Terms before using or providing information through such offering, feature or functionality.


We may also disclose your Personal Information if required to do so by law or if it is our good faith belief that disclosure is necessary in order to: (1) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process; (2) protect and defend our rights or properties; or (3) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of our users, our Sites or the public.
