Regarding information shared by you on our website or collected by our website or otherwise online:
Outside of embedded web applications or forms on our website where you personally choose to engage and enter your personal identifying and/or personal health information, YOU CAN ACCESS AND BROWSE OUR WEBSITE AT ANY TIME WITHOUT PROVIDING ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION, as our website does not automatically collect any personal information, including any information that would personally identify you.
Considerable resources have been invested into the security of our website. We force SSL throughout our website – in other words it’s incredibly difficult for you to use our website without encryption and privacy of transmitted information. And we have implemented premium firewall technology throughout our website – in other words it’s incredibly difficult to break into our website and get information from it. As such, our website is much more secure than it needs to be in order to be HIPAA and HITECH compliant. Your personal identifying information and/or personal health information submitted through any embedded web applications or forms on our website is encrypted and more than reasonably safe. Many additional steps and additional resources have been taken and invested into your privacy and the security of your information and our website.
Information our website collects automatically:In order to better understand how people use our website, we utilize two third-party tools called Google Analytics and Bing Analytics web analysis services, provided by Google and Bing respectively. Google Analytics and Bing Analytics only automatically collect information we have given them permission to collect. We have very precisely configured our installation of Google Analytics and Bing Analytics to be compliant with the European Union’s GDPR requirements, which far surpass USA privacy and security requirements, to only collect anonymous information via an anonymous IP permission, and to not use it for remarketing or retargeting purposes. Your interaction with our website is completely anonymous. How you interact with our website will not be used by Google Analytics or Bing Analytics or any other third party to interact or engage with you before or after your interaction with our website. In other words, they should not market to you or individualize your experience of Google or Bing in any way differently due to your interaction with our website.
The only information we have given Google Analytics and Bing Analytics permission to collect is information such as: how often a user visits our website, which pages they visit, how long they spend on those pages, what they interact with on those pages, which websites referred them to our website, browser type, device type, operating system, date/time stamp, their general location only as specific as their zip code, and solely based on an anonymous IP address. This information is only used internally to improve our website. We do not utilize any other third-party tools on our website to collect any information whatsoever, and we do not share any of this anonymous information with any digital marketing agency or other third-party.
When interacting with our services within your social media profile, we may automatically be provided with information stored within your social media that has been authorized by you to be shared by your social media within such social media. This information may include your contact information, email address, friend information, friends and pages with whom you have an association, and other information stored within social media. We don’t have any control over any of this information, as it is yours and you are in control of your own social media permissions. If you do not want this information to be shared and collected, please modify your data permissions within that social media platform.
