Information that we derive independently from your use of the site
Aside from any information you may actively disclose to us, there is other less

the layout of our pages for each individual according to their preferences. In addition,

Our system automatically collects information about the pages that visitors view
on our website. We may use this aggregate information to understand how our members
as a group use the services we provide so that we can improve our site. Furthermore,
we may share such aggregate statistical information with our partners, affiliates
or other outside companies, but in doing so, it is not our practice to disclose
individual names or other personal information. Some examples of how we aggregate
such information are as follows:
- Cookies: A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser
from a Web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. Cookies are widely used
on the Internet and have become an industry standard. Cookies enable user registration,
login and personalization, among other things. Although a cookie cannot identify
you personally, it can identify your computer. Your browser is most likely set up
to accept cookies automatically. If you would like to disable this feature, you
may do so by adjusting the options or preferences in your browser. However, by doing
so, you will lose some of the conveniences of our Web pages.
- IP addresses: An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to
your computer whenever you begin service with an Internet service provider. We collect
IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and to audit the use of our
site. Each time you log onto our site and each time you request one of our pages,
our server logs your IP address. Although we log your session with us, we will not
normally link your IP address to anything that can enable us to identify you. However,
we can and will use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary
to enforce compliance with our rules or terms of service or to protect our service,
site, users or others.
- Computer information: We query your computer automatically for information
about the computer or operating system you are using such as the baud rate of your
modem or error messages you may have received. We may do so in order to fit our
services to your individual needs and to diagnose problems you may be having with
our website. We use a unique identifier in the form of a user ID to give you access
to special areas of our site intended for registered users.
- Geographic location: We may gather information about your geographical location
by determining where your computer is located. We do this in order to provide either
localized service or to provide faster service by sending your server localized
- Other information: We may require other information for tracking or verifying
compliance with our policies, abiding by federal, state and local laws and for editorial
and feedback solicitation purposes. In addition, from time to time, we may use your
information for unanticipated uses, such as notification of new services, announcements
and general communications. If our information practices materially change at some
time in the future, we will post such changes to the site before we use your data
for these new purposes. If you are concerned about how your information is used,
How to access and change your user information

We may disclose user information in special cases when we believe in good faith
that such disclosure is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against
someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally
or unintentionally) our rights or property or the rights or property of our users
or others. We also may disclose user information when we believe in good faith that
the law requires it. Finally, in the event of a merger, sale of all or substantially
all of Nursefinders' assets or a consolidation we reserve the right to transfer
and use such personal information only for the purposes it was originally provided.

no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure
and we will not be held liable should a third party illegally obtain your personal
information. While we have made a great effort to protect your personal information,
we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us,
and you do so at your own risk. Our policy does not extend to anything that is inherent
in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond our control, and is not to
