Ways that we may use this information are, for example: to verify that our survey participants are 13 years or older, or to insure that we have appropriate contact information from individuals or institutions who complete our online permissions request form. Below are more detailed descriptions of the kinds of information we may request from you, and how we use that information.
Our readers can contact us by mail, or with our online contact form to provide us with feedback about the web site. When possible, the staff of Young Men's Health responds to these questions, and, once the correspondence is complete, we delete or archive the exchange, to preserve our readers' privacy. We do, however, save these questions and answers, to use them in aggregate articles, such as "Frequently Asked Questions" pages, where we provide answers to our readers’ commonly asked questions.
Our web and email servers have typical privacy safeguards to insure that your online forms and emails will not be viewed inappropriately. However, these servers, like most, are not 100% secure. If you wish to avoid even a remote chance of a breach of your online privacy, please do not send us correspondence via online form, or by email.
