Each day, we generate a list of the top 10 e-mailed pages. Eventually, we will display that list on the home page. We do not store the e-mail address of either the sender or the recipient.
We are planning to start running polls to find out the needs of our subscribers and how their health is affecting them and their family/caregivers. Responses to the poll are anonymous. The date and time, IP address, and vote for each vote cast is recorded and reviewed prior to publishing the results. We use this record to remove obviously duplicated answers, which sometimes happens. Removing duplicates helps to make the poll results more accurate, but the polls are not scientific.
