About Healthcare Travelbook and the Information We Collect

Healthcare Travelbook is an internet social networking service. When registering for Healthcare Travelbook, you provide certain personal information, such as your name, email address, and other personal or preference information. As part of the registration process, a Healthcare Travelbook Member profile is created, through which Member Information can be disclosed to the other Members. The amount of information that is disclosed will depend on the relationship between the other Members and yourself. Members should be aware that Member Information can be read, collected, or used by Members to whom it is disclosed, and could be used improperly. Healthcare Travelbook is not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to disclose or for the misuse by other members of such information. Any misuse or improper collection of Member Information provided is a violation of the Healthcare Travelbook Terms of Service and should be reported to our staff.
