I agree that Virginia Mason Franciscan Health may use email to communicate with me regarding my volunteer service. I understand that email is not a secure medium for sending and receiving potentially sensitive personal healthcare information. Virginia Mason Franciscan Health cannot assure the confidentiality or protection of email communications, particularly if the emails are sent to multiple individuals participating in volunteer services. In addition, email sent to Virginia Mason Franciscan Health may be accessed by individuals who are not directly involved in Volunteer Services (for example: by my employer if my email address is provided, by my internet service provider).
