You are solely responsible for any contact you have with those web sites.

The following explains how we handle the information we learn from you when you visit the WRMS web site (www.wregional.com). The type of information we receive from you depends on what you do in the site and which pages you view during your visit.

Online Forms & Email Communication

We do not obtain personal information (for example, name, address, email addresses, phone numbers, etc.) about you when you visit the WRMS web site unless you choose voluntarily to provide such information to us.

If you identify yourself either by sending WRMS an email, by using the "Email Us" at the bottom of each page on the WRMS web site or by registering to receive information from us or for various events, then there are a few things you should know.

Various people at WRMS may see the information that you submit.
Your information may be entered into our electronic database in order to share it with our physicians; other care professionals, researchers, or Internet services staff.
In other limited situations, including requests from legal authorities, we may be required by law to disclose information that you submit.

We cannot guarantee the confidentiality of electronic mail (e-mail) and other Internet communications. You should be aware that e-mail and other Internet communications channels are not secure and might be intercepted by third parties. If the information you want to send to us is sensitive, or includes information regarding your diagnosis or medical history, then you should send it by postal mail instead.

We will not sell, lease, transfer, share or otherwise allow access to your personal information to any outside parties except as we have explained in this policy or as we tell you at the time you provide the information.

We may use, sell, or otherwise share with others, aggregated data (which does not identify you) and other details regarding our site's usage and traffic patterns.

If you do not agree with how we will use and disclose your personal information, do not provide any personal information to this site.


WRMS has implemented security measures to protect the privacy of your information. However, there are no systems that are 100% secure or error-free. Therefore, we do not guarantee the security or accuracy of the information we gather. Our private network is protected by a firewall.
