We ask you to register by creating your own User ID and password. This will give you an interactive experience whereby you can create a personalized list of questions, store information and more easily print documents. Website browsing activity will be monitored so that we can learn about the people who visit the website, how often people visit the website, and the web pages that are visited most often. This will help us decide which changes and improvements to make to the website in the future.

We will also ask for your e-mail address. Your e-mail will be used only to send you password reset information in case you forget your password in the future. Your e-mail will not be shared with other organizations. We will not otherwise send you e-mails, and will not ask you for any personal health information. Also, any results from this project will be described for groups of website visitors (i.e., not for individual users).
