Data Privacy Notice (“Tennessen Warning”)

Northfield Hospital & Clinics (NH&C) is asking you to provide information which includes private information under the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act (MGDPA).  NH&C is asking for this private information so that NH&C can establish a file regarding your volunteer/observer/student interest with NH&C and process the information.

This information will be used to assist in communicating with you about volunteer/observer/student opportunities, decide on placement and scheduling, and maintain a database for future communication purposes.

You are not legally required to provide the information NH&C is requesting and you may refuse to provide some or all of the information requested.  However, NH&C may not be able to offer you volunteer/observer/student opportunities if you do not provide sufficient information. 

With some exceptions, unless you consent to further release of private information, access to this information will be limited to individuals whose jobs reasonably require access to this information.  However, state and federal law authorize release of private information without your consent if required by a court order, or authorized by other state or federal law.
