Like most website operators, HealthComm collects information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. This information cannot be used to personally identify visitors, and HealthComm’ purpose in collecting this information is to better understand how visitors use the HealthComm website.
HealthComm also collects information that may potentially be used to personally identify visitors; an example of this type of information is a visitor’s Internet Protocol (IP) address. HealthComm does not use such information to identify its visitors, however; nor does HealthComm disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally identifying information, as described in the ‘Protection of Certain Personally Identifying Information’ below.
Gathering of Personally Identifying Information
Certain visitors to HealthComm’ website choose to interact with HealthComm in ways that require HealthComm to gather personally identifying information. The amount and type of information that HealthComm gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, those who purchase software or services from HealthComm are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, HealthComm collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with HealthComm. HealthComm does not disclose personally identifying information other than as described in the ‘Protection of Certain Personally Identifying Information’ below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain activities related to HealthComm and its website.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
HealthComm discloses potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on HealthComm’ behalf or to provide services available at HealthComm’ websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of a visitor’s home country; by using HealthComm’ websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. HealthComm will not rent or sell potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, HealthComm discloses potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when HealthComm believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of HealthComm, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a HealthComm website and have supplied your email address, HealthComm may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with HealthComm and our products. HealthComm takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information.
