Department of Health Professions
Privacy Policy Statement

June 15, 2001

The Department of Health Professions adopts this Internet Privacy Policy for its web sites. This explains our current Internet privacy practices, but should not be construed as a contractual promise. We reserve the right to amend this policy at any time without notice.


This site is used for two purposes:
It collects personal information required pursuant to 54.1-2910.1 of the Code of Virginia, commonly known as physician profiling. This site is a secure, password-protected site for the submission of data required by law for practitioners licensed by the Board of Medicine as doctors of medicine, osteopathy and podiatry. This data is a self-report by each individual. It tracks every transaction entered by the practitioner including date. It is used for administrative purposes to manage the data collection process, and is accessible by password to agency staff, contractors and sub contractors. It may be disclosed pursuant consistent with Virginia Freedom of Information Act, the Administrative Process Act, and Sub Title III of Title 54.1 of the Code of Virginia. It does not place a "cookie" on the user's computer.

This site is used, not password protected, to disseminate data submitted by physicians to any person who wishes to query the profiled data. When used this way it does not track the user's movements throughout the site, nor does it place a cookie in the user's computer.

The Department of Health Professions (DHP) Web site has links to other Web sites. These include links to Web sites operated by other government agencies, nonprofit organizations and private businesses. When you link to another site, you are no longer on the DHP Web site and this Privacy Policy will not apply. When you link to another Web site, you are subject to the privacy policy of that new site.

Neither DHP, nor any employee of the Department warrants the accuracy, reliability or timeliness of any information published by this system, nor endorses any content, viewpoints, products or services linked from this system, and shall not be held liable for any losses caused by reliance on the accuracy, reliability,timeliness or usefulness of such information. Portions of such information may be incorrect or outdated. Any person or entity that relies on any information obtained from this system does so at their own risk.
