Privacy Policy

The New England Consortium of Metabolic Programs (the Consortium) is committed to insuring that our web site visitors’ privacy is protected.

Tracking “Cookies”
Many websites use a feature known as “cookies” to store information about visitors who return to a website.  The Consortium web site does not use “cookies”, and does not track or store any personal information about individual readers who visit the site.

Email Correspondence
Email correspondence between Consortium staff and our web site readers is intended only for exchanging information and improving the Consortium’s online materials and services. Emails from readers who contact us are kept private and confidential using standard email security measures, and are never publicized unless written permission is obtained from the reader.

The Consortium occasionally conducts online surveys to learn about how our readers find and use information, and how they take care of their health.  Survey participants always remain anonymous, and their individual answers remain private and confidential. Survey results are only used and presented in aggregate (grouped), for the benefit of our web site readers and Consortium members.

Online Forms
Information collected by the Consortium via online or mailed-in forms, such as Permission Requests, book orders, conference registrations, and other forms will be kept private and confidential. The Consortium will not disclose details of your personal information, or use it beyond its original and intended purpose.
