Privacy and Confidentiality Policy

CROI maintains a privacy and confidentiality policy with regard to our website and continuing medical education (CME) activities. CROI does not make use of hidden technical mechanisms for transferring individual user data (eg, “cookies,” which leave evidence of having visited the site on a user’s computer) nor do we require registration or otherwise attempt to capture information from users in a nonvoluntary manner. Visitors who wish to apply for CME credits for CROI-sponsored activities on the Internet may do so by submitting completed evaluation and registration forms. This information is not linked to the user visit to the activity; registration information submitted is retained only as evidence of CME credits earned (as required by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education). Registration lists are confidential. CROI does not rent or sell registration or address lists.
