University Hospital Foundation Privacy Policy

Before personal information is collected directly from its stakeholders, the Foundation will identify the purpose(s) for which the information is collected. The Foundation will not use or disclose personal information for any new use beyond that for which it was originally collected without first obtaining consent, except as required by law.

Collection of personal information is limited to that which is necessary for the purposes identified and will be collected by fair and lawful means. The Foundation does not collect health information, other than that which is volunteered directly by the individual or their representative. Donor recognition and honorary acknowledgements will be disclosed by name unless the supporter indicates they wish to remain anonymous. The Foundation does not trade, rent or sell any personal information to third parties and is only disclosed to third parties who have been bound to the Foundation’s privacy policies.
