Who Operates the Web Site?

The Web Site is jointly operated by Teresa Norris (President and Founder), Amélie McFadyen (Chief Executive Officer) and Anthony Francis Lombardi (Chief Operations Officer) of HPV Global Action. From time to time, other individuals might contribute to the task for specific purposes.

Our mission is to raise awareness of positive sexual and reproductive health through the implementation of comprehensive education programs while emphasizing HPV and its potential consequences. We empower culturally and ideologically diverse youth, families, and communities across the globe through the dissemination of critical, evidence-based knowledge. Currently, we are conducting an on-going evaluation, assessing student’s attitudes, behaviours, perceptions and knowledge on sexual health, before our education program, and one month later.

We collect information from you when you send a message through the contact form on our Web Site, participate in our blog, respond to a survey, or make a donation. On these occasions, you may be asked to enter your name, email addresses, mailing address or other details which might help you with your experience on our Web Site.

The information collected by the Web Site, with user consent and consigned to user files, serves to respond to user information requests, send users requested paper-based or electronic documents, provide publication, administer surveys or contests.

User information requests may require the disclosure of contact information to an organization handling document shipping. If users consent to having their name on mailing, survey or contest lists, it may also be necessary to disclose their contact information to a sub-contractor (which would be identified in any specific survey or contest available on our Web Site).

The Web Site discloses personal information only in response to specific user requests or for explicitly authorized purposes. The confidentiality of electronically transmitted information is further guaranteed by advanced security measures.

Use of Cookies

Cookies are small data files transferred to your browser by a web site. They keep a record of your preferences, making your subsequent visits to the said web site more efficient. The use of cookies is a common practice adopted by most major sites to better serve their clients.

The cookies used by our Web Site are harmless.

Most browsers are designed to accept cookies, but they can be easily modified to refuse. You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser’s Help Menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.

Users may opt to refuse them but will lose some benefits of the Web Site in doing so. For example, a subscription cannot be delivered if the user refuses cookies. Some of our service forms offer an “Automatic Recognition” option that enables a cookie to recognize returning users, who thus avoid having to identify themselves on each visit. Each of these forms also provides an “Automatic Recognition” cancellation function.
