Privacy Policy

The Memorial Sloan Kettering – Hackensack Meridian Health Partnership (“The Partnership”, “we”, “us”) is committed to protecting the privacy of our Users’ data. The Partnership uses its best efforts to ensure that the information you submit to The Partnership’s website remains private, and is used only for the purposes as set forth herein.

Applicability of Policy
This privacy policy applies to all information collected from you or submitted by you on The Partnership’s website located at (“the Site”). If you have any questions about this policy, please contact us at

This privacy policy does not cover the information collected through the individual websites of the Partnership organizations i.e. Memorial Sloan Kettering (“MSK”) and Hackensack Meridian Health (“HMH”) when you visit each of those sites.

This privacy policy also does not cover the information that either of the Partnership organizations (i.e. Memorial Sloan Kettering or Hackensack Meridian Health) collect through other channels (including from the doctors at each organization) if you are a patient of either organization. Each organization’s use of any information it collects about you as a patient, and their use of patient medical records and patient health information are governed by that organization’s patient Notice of Privacy Practices which is available on each organization’s individual websites.


The Information We Collect and Use
When we use the term “Personal Data” we mean information that we directly associate with a specific person, or that we can reasonably use to identify a specific person such as a name or email address. We collect and use information through your use of the Site in the following ways.

1. Personal Data You Provide To Us
When a user registers for attendance at an event, such as a symposium, the information collected includes but is not limited to name, mailing address, and email address. We use this information to register you in the program and facilitate and administer the event. We may also use this information to contact you to respond to your requests or inquiries and provide support, or to contact you about The Partnership programs, products, or services that we believe may be of interest to you, including new Partnership service announcements or event invitations.

2. Information We Collect Automatically

We use certain technologies on the Site to collect information that does not directly reveal your identity (“Other Information”). The Partnership only uses Other Information anonymously and in aggregate (i.e., non-User specific) form. If we associate Other Information with Personal Data, we will treat the combined information as Personal Data in accordance with this privacy policy.

The technologies we use include the following:

  • Web Log File Data. Like most other websites, we collect some basic information automatically about you and store it in log files. This information may include IP address, browser type, internet service provider, pages you visit from and pages to go to after leaving the Site, date and time stamp, clickstream data, website traffic patterns and server usage statistics. We use this information for site management and administration, to improve the content, overall performance and user experience on the Site, for fraud protection and for protecting our rights.
  • Cookies and Other Data Collection Technologies. The Partnership and our service providers may use cookies, web beacons and similar technologies to manage the Site and to collect information about you when you use the Site. Cookies are small files that your Web browser places on your computer’s hard drive. The Partnership may use cookies, if at all, for remembering user names and passwords (if applicable) and preferences, tracking click streams, and for load balancing. These technologies help us to recognize you, analyze your use of the Site and identify solutions for how to make the Site more useful. These technologies also allow us to enhance the usability of the Site by aggregating demographic and statistical data and providing this information to our service providers. Additionally, third party widgets such as Facebook or YouTube may install cookies as well, depending on their configurations. Most browsers allow you to turn off cookies if you do not want your preferences tracked. You can still use the Site if cookies are turned off, but disabling cookies may result in a diminished ability to take advantage of the features of the Site. The “help” menu on most internet browsers contains information on how to disable cookies, or you can visit
  • Information for Analytics. The Partnership uses analytics providers such as Google Analytics to help us evaluate and measure the use and performance of the Site. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve this site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to this site by visiting and downloading and installing the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
