OHSU Email Communication Terms of Service

In these Terms of Service, all references to OHSU shall include OHSU and any person or entity acting on behalf of OHSU to deliver email communications.

By subscribing to our email communication, you understand and agree to the following terms of service for email communication:

  • I hereby consent to receive communications about events that I have expressed an interest in attending via email and about other events and information that OHSU determines might interest me based on prior expressed interest.
  • I understand that OHSU is committed to keeping my email address confidential and will not sell or lease my email address to anyone.
  • I understand that OHSU will only share or distribute my email as allowed or required by law.
  • I understand that email communications, outside of OHSU MyChart messaging, may contain information I wish to keep confidential, such as information about my health care. 
  • I understand that the email messages sent by OHSU, outside of OHSU MyChart, may not be encrypted and may not be confidential.
  • I also understand that OHSU cannot assure the privacy of an email. Email travels via the public Internet or my email carrier’s network. It is not possible to verify that an email is actually received, opened and read by the intended recipient. I accept the risk that my medical information may not be confidential when it arrives at my email inbox.
  • I agree and understand that OHSU takes no responsibility for and disclaims any and all liability arising from any breach of confidentiality not caused by OHSU, inaccuracies or defects in software, communication lines, virtual private network, the internet or my internet service provider, mobile carrier or mobile carrier’s network, access system, computer hardware or software, or any other service or device that I use to access emails.
  • I agree and understand that OHSU reserves the right to terminate email communication with me at any time for any reason without prior notice.
  • I understand that I may terminate receiving email communications by opting-out at any time. To opt-out, I may click the “Unsubscribe” or “Manage Subscriptions” link in the footer of any OHSU email that I receive outside of OHSU MyChart, or “Reply” to the sender of the email directly to request to unsubscribe.
  • I agree to notify OHSU as soon as practical if my email address changes. I also agree and understand that OHSU takes no responsibility for and disclaims any and all liability arising from my failure to notify OHSU of a change in my email address.
  • I understand that I may receive emails on my mobile phone or such other device or program that allows the receipt of emails. By providing my consent to participate in this service, I approve any charges from my mobile carrier or other third party to receive such emails.
