Most cookies expire after a certain time period. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually change your browser to prevent this from occurring.


Will the Simón Bolívar Foundation disclose the information it collects to outside parties?

The Simón Bolívar Foundation will not disclose your personal information to third parties without your consent. The Simón Bolívar Foundation may share aggregate information about our users with business partners, sponsors and other third parties. For example, we may say that the Simón Bolívar Foundation audience is [x] percent female and [y] percent male. This data is used to customize Simón Bolívar Foundation content and services to deliver a better experience for our users. The Simón Bolívar Foundation may disclose user information in special cases where we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) the Simón Bolívar Foundation’s rights or property, other Simón Bolívar Foundation website users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.

How does the Simón Bolívar Foundation protect user/patient information?

The Simón Bolívar Foundation is committed to the security and confidentiality of your personal information. We utilize industry standard administrative, physical and technical security measures to protect your information. We occasionally review our security procedures as new technology and methodology evolves to ensure the security of information. We protect the transmission of information utilizing Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. It encrypts all of your financial information, including credit card information, so it can't be read as the data travels over the Internet.
