The Hemochromatosis Information Society (HIS) is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. You do not have to give us personal information to visit our site. We will not sell, share, or rent information to others in ways other than those outlined in this statement. HIS may collect information from our users at several different points on our website. Personal information provided by users will be used by HIS to improve the site and provide a more personalized experience for the user, but information which identifies a specific individual will not be disclosed to third parties without the user’s permission unless necessary to provide services which the user has requested.

If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the website, read pages, or download information, we will gather and store certain information about your visit automatically. This information does not identify you personally.

We use this information to help us make our site more useful to visitors — to learn about the number of visitors to our site and the types of technology our visitors use. We do not track or record information about individuals and their visits.

Health Information

In the event that you provide HIS with any personal health information, HIS will maintain the privacy of your health information in accordance with any applicable state and/or federal statutes.

We may disclose health information for law enforcement purposes as required by law or in response to a valid subpoena.


This website takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. All of our users’ information is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information.


This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that HIS is not responsible for the privacy practices of such sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of every website that collects personally identifiable information. The HIS privacy statement applies solely to information collected by the HIS website.


We may use information you provide in order to contact you as part of a fundraising effort.
