Privacy policy


The Financing and reimbursement of Cures in the US (“FoCUS”) Project, a part of the New Drug Development Paradigms Initiative (“NEWDIGS”) within the Tufts Medical Center ("Tufts") is committed to supporting the privacy of visitors to its website (the “Site”). This Privacy Statement explains how we handle and use the personal information we collect from you.

Cookies on the Site

On the Site, cookies are only used for your login session/data. When you visit the site and don’t need to log in again, that’s because of a cookie being stored.

About cookies: A cookie, in the context of web site use, is a small piece of information generated by a web server and stored temporarily in the computer‘s web browser. Cookies are embedded in the HTML code that flows back and forth between the user‘s computer and the servers. A cookie file is not a secret way for a web server to find out everything about users and the information they have stored on their computers. The only way that any personal information (like your name) could be part of your cookie file would be if you personally entered that information on our website (when registering, for example) and our website’s server was programmed to include that information into the cookie file. Also, each cookie is specific to the particular server it came from, and web browsers will only send the cookie back to that server. There is no way for a web server to use a cookie to access any private information about you, or read your computer data. In addition, viruses are not spread through the use of cookies.

Additional Information

We may change this Privacy Statement from time to time. If we make any significant changes in the way we treat your personal information we will make this clear on the Site or by contacting you directly.
