CHASE BREXTON HEALTH CARE WEBSITE PRIVACY POLICY

[7 July 2016]

Chase Brexton Health Care (“Chase Brexton,” “we,” or “us”) has developed this privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) to demonstrate our commitment to protecting your privacy and we encourage you to read it carefully.  The Privacy Policy is intended to describe for you, as an individual who is a visitor or user of a website or web presence owned or operated by Chase Brexton (the “Website”), the information we collect, how that information may be used, with whom it may be shared, and your choices about such uses and disclosures.  By using the Website, you are consenting to the practices described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is not intended to cover any protected health information (“PHI”) that you may provide to Chase Brexton, whether through the Website or otherwise. Chase Brexton patients should also review the HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices.

What Information Do We Collect About You?

We collect any information you enter on the Website. The information that we collect may vary, but our forms on the Website generally require that you provide us with your name, email address and phone number.

We also may use various technologies to collect information from your computer and about your activities on the Website.

  • We may automatically collect information from your browser when you visit the Website. This information would include your IP address, your browser type and language, operating system, webpages you view, links you click, device ID, length of time you visit our site, page views, click-stream information, referring URL and the content of any undeleted cookies that your browser previously accepted from us.
  • When you visit the Website, we may assign your computer one or more cookies to facilitate access to the Website and to personalize your online experience. Through the use of a cookie, we also may automatically collect information about your online activity on the Website, such as the web pages you visit, the links you click, and the searches you conduct on the Website. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you choose to decline cookies, please note that you may not be able to sign in or use some of the interactive features offered on the Website.
  • We may use standard internet technology, such as web beacons and other similar technologies, to track your use of the Website. We also may include web beacons in our e-mail messages or newsletters to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon. The information we may obtain in this manner would enable us to customize the services we offer to visitors of the Website and to measure the overall effectiveness of our online advertising, content, programming or other activities.
  • We may use Google Analytics as a third party vendor. We completely adhere to Google’s policies regarding the use of cookies and data. We send data to Google Analytics via various methods such as the Google Analytics tracking code, Google Analytics SDK, and the Measurement Protocol. Google Analytics Advertiser Features collect data via Google advertising cookies and anonymous identifiers. We do not merge your personally-identifiable information with any type of non-personally identifiable information without your consent. You can easily opt-out of the Google Analytics Advertiser Features (which we have implemented) via Ads Settings, Ad Settings for mobile apps and the NAI's consumer opt-out. You can also go to Google Analytics' currently available opt-outs for the web.
  • We and our third-party vendors use first-party cookies or other first-party identifiers, and third-party cookies or other third-party identifiers together.

How Do We Use The Information We Collect From You?

Generally, we use your information for such purposes as operating the Website, providing the services offered by the Website and communicating with you, performing analysis about your use of and interest in the offerings and content on the Website, managing our day-to-day business, and performing functions as otherwise described to you at the time of collection. 

With Whom Do We Share Your Information?

We may share your personal information with our affiliated providers and with authorized service providers that perform certain services on our behalf.  These services may include processing credit card payments (if applicable), providing customer service and marketing assistance, performing business analysis, conducting surveys, supporting the Website’s functionality and other features that may be offered through the Website.

Any third parties to whom we may disclose personal information may have their own privacy policies which describe how they use and disclose personal information. Those policies will govern use, handling and disclosure of your personal information once we have shared it with those third parties as described in this Privacy Policy.

We may also disclose your information in response to a subpoena or similar investigative demand, a court order, or a request for cooperation from law enforcement or other government agency; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law. In such cases, we may raise or waive any legal objection or right available to us, in our sole discretion.  We may also disclose your information when we believe it is appropriate in connection with efforts to investigate, prevent, report or take other action regarding illegal activity, suspected fraud or other wrongdoing; to protect and defend the rights, property or safety of you, Chase Brexton, our employees, or the public; to comply with applicable law or cooperate with law enforcement; or to enforce our terms and conditions or other agreements or policies.  Likewise, we may disclose your information in connection with a substantial corporate transaction, such as a merger, consolidation, or asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy.

We may share aggregated and non-personal information we collect under any of the previously mentioned circumstances. We may share aggregated information with third parties, for the purpose of conducting general operational and business analysis and to develop and improve the Website. For example, we may tell our advertisers the number of visitors to the Website and the most popular features or services accessed.

Does This Privacy Policy Govern Third-Party Website?

There may be places on the Website where you may click on a link to access other websites that do not operate under this Privacy Policy. In addition, you may be logged into a third party website, such as a social media site, while browsing the Website.  These third-party websites may independently solicit and collect information, including personal information, from you and, in some instances, provide us with information about your activities on those websites. We recommend that you consult the privacy statements of all third-party websites you visit by clicking on the “privacy” link typically located at the bottom of the webpage you are visiting.

What Are Your Choices About Collection And Use Of Your Information?

You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but that may result in you being unable to use certain features of the Website because such information may be required in order to validate your identity, utilize services on the Website or to contact us for information.

When you contact us through the Website, you will be set up to receive email messages unless you indicate that you do not wish to receive emails.  At any time you can choose to no longer receive such emails by following the instructions found in the emails. 

How Do We Protect Your Personal Information?

We take appropriate security measures (including physical, electronic and procedural measures) to help safeguard your personal information from unauthorized access and disclosure. We want you to feel confident using the Website; however, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, it is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer or other internet access device.   

Sending email directly to an email address found on the Website is not secure. Unsecured information transferred over the Internet is similar to a postcard being sent through the mail. It is recommended that you do not send personal health or other sensitive information to Chase Brexton or anyone else using unsecured means. Should you choose to supply confidential information in this manner, you do so at your own risk.

Although we take steps to secure your information, we do not guarantee the security of your information, and you should not expect that your personal information, searches, or other communications will always remain secure.  Please refer to the Federal Trade Commission’s website at www.consumer.ftc.gov for information about how to protect yourself against identity theft.

No Collection of Information from Children

The Website are intended for use by adults only. Chase Brexton does not solicit or knowingly collect any information from visitors under 18 years of age.  Please do not use the Website if you are not yet 18.  

Visiting Our Website from Outside the United States

This Privacy Policy is intended to cover collection of information on or via the Website from residents of the United States. If you are visiting the Website from outside the United States, please be aware that your information may be transferred to, stored, and processed in the United States where our servers are located and our central database is operated. The data protection and other laws of the United States and other countries might not be as comprehensive as those in your country. Please be assured that we seek to take reasonable steps to ensure that your privacy is protected. By using the Website, you understand that your information may be transferred to our facilities and those third parties with whom we share it as described in this privacy policy.

No Rights of Third Parties

This Privacy Policy does not create rights enforceable by third parties or require disclosure of any personal information relating to users.

Changes to This Privacy Policy

We will occasionally update this Privacy Policy to reflect changes in our practices and services. When we post changes to this Privacy Policy, we will revise the date at the top of this Privacy Policy. If we make any material changes in the way we collect, use, and/or share your personal information, we will notify you by sending an email to the email address you most recently provided us in your account, profile or registration (unless we do not have such an email address), and/or by prominently posting notice of the changes on the Website. We recommend that you check the Website from time to time to inform yourself of any changes in this Privacy Policy or any of our other policies.
