Privacy Policy

The Parkinson Study Group (PSG) is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you an enhanced and safe online experience. This Privacy Policy applies to this PSG Web site and governs data collection and usage on the site.



This site has measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information on secure portions of this site. Information is stored on secure servers. You should be aware, however, that “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet, and third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. The PSG Web server automatically recognizes the user's domain name, but not the e-mail address. We may store and analyze aggregate information on pages users access or visit, but not any personally identifiable information, in order to improve and enhance the site. If you supply us with your email or postal address online, you will only receive the information for which you provided us your address. Users who supply PSG with their telephone numbers online may receive calls from us regarding their inquiries. Voluntary information users provide through online surveys and/or site registrations may be stored, analyzed and used for PSG purposes to enhance its services.
