Privacy Policy


The State of Missouri, and its agents, contractors, sub-contractors, and third party service providers (collectively, "the Client") is strongly committed to protecting the privacy of registrants and users of its products and services. Throughout cyberspace, we want to contribute to providing a safe and secure environment for you, our users.

The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to inform you, as a user of the Site or user of any Site content, what kinds of information we may gather about you when you visit the Site, how we may use that information, whether we disclose it to anyone, and the choices you have regarding our use of, and your ability to correct, the information. This privacy policy applies to the Site and any Site content that incorporates this policy. Please note that this policy applies only to the Site and Site content, and not to other companies' or organizations' Web sites to which we link.


In general, our Site automatically gathers certain usage information like the numbers and frequency of visitors to the Site and the name of the domain from which you accessed our site, the date and time any page on our site was accessed, the address (also called the URL) of the web site from which any page on this site was linked, the type of browser being used, and the type of operating system you use. This is very much like television ratings that tell the networks how many people tuned in to a program. We only use such data in the aggregate. This aggregate data helps us determine how much you use parts of the Site, so we can improve our Site to assure that it is as appealing as we can make it for as many of you as possible. We also may provide statistical "ratings" information, never information about you personally, to our Site partners about how you (volunteers and other entities that access the data) collectively, use the Site. The Client generally does not use a technology nicknamed 'cookies' but cookies may be used to assist you in interacting with us while using SHOW ME RESPONSE. A persistent cookie also known as a permanent cookie, or a stored cookie, is stored on a user's hard drive until it expires or until the user deletes the cookie. Persistent cookies are used to collect identifying information about the user, such as Web surfing behavior or user preferences for a specific Web site. A second type of cookie is called a session or transient cookie. The session cookie is stored in temporary memory and is not retained after the browser is closed. They typically will store information in the form of a session identification that does not personally identify the user. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.

SHOW ME RESPONSE will only use session cookies. By using this Site to register you are opting in to accept session cookies. If you reset your browser to refuse all cookies you may not be able to register electronically with SHOW ME RESPONSE.

Please note that the information you enter in the process of registering on SHOW ME RESPONSE will be stored in a computer database to help us provide you with the best possible service during this and future visits. The information in this database may include any information you provide to us during this visit or subsequent visits.


We do not use or disclose information about your individual visits to the Site or information that you may give us on the Site, such as your name, e-mail address, gender, date of birth, social security number, Drivers License information, proof of Education, proof of health care professional licensure, DEA license verification, Medical Board Certification, National Practitioner Database Status, Office of Inspector General LEIE Status, Active Clinical practice status, Active clinical privileges, and any other credentialing information (the Registration Information) as may be deemed necessary by us, to any outside entities. The Client, through the Site, may share such information in response to legal process, such as a court order or subpoena, or in special cases such as a physical threat to you or others. And, as we mention above, we may share with our Web site partners aggregated statistical "ratings" information about the use of the Site.


If we decide to change our privacy policy for the Site, we will post those changes here so that you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information and whether we will disclose it to anyone.

If you have questions or concerns regarding this statement, please contact us.

Effective as of July 1, 2010

All reasonable efforts, in accordance with the federal guidelines for Emergency System for Advance Registration of Volunteer Health Professionals (ESAR-VHP), have been made to ascertain the credentials of individuals interested in becoming a volunteer.
