MSM is committed to protecting your online privacy. The only information MSM obtains about individual visitors to this web site is information supplied voluntarily by the visitor. This policy outlines the practices of MSM regarding the collection and use of your personal information from your visit to our web site.
Personally Provided Information
In general, you can visit official MSM web sites without revealing any personal information. If you choose to provide us with any personal information by sending an email or by filling out a form with your personal information and submitting it through a MSM web site, we use that information to respond to your message and to help us provide you with information or material that you request. We do not give, share, sell or transfer any personal information to a third party unless required by law.
Email communication that you send to us via the email links on our sites may be shared with a customer service representative, employee, or medical expert that is most able to address your inquiry. We make every effort to respond in a timely fashion once communications are received.
Collection of Technical Information
MSM uses IP addresses (the Internet address of your computer) to help diagnose problems with our servers and to administer our site. For instance, we run statistical software to identify those parts of our site that are more heavily used and which portion of our audience comes from within the MSM network. But, we do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable.
While aggregate statistical reports may be generated based on site usage, no personally identifiable information will ever be disseminated to any unaffiliated third party.
While no computing environment can be 100% secure, it is MSM’s goal to maintain as secure a technical environment as feasible given the current state of capabilities and technologies. MSM will comply with all state and federal statutes requiring additional safeguards for certain types of information, such as student personal information and patient protected health information.

If you have a complaint or problem, or if you believe your privacy rights have been violated, you may email us at webmaster.@msm.edu. Please indicate the reason for contacting us. Our Marketing and Communications department will forward your complaint to the appropriate MSM entity for response or resolution.
