Our policy is based on the principles of notice, access and security, in the collection and use of all information regarding our users and
their activities at our site.
This policy tells you, among other things, who operates this website, for whom it is operated, what information we gather from you, how we
may use or disclose that information and our efforts to protect it. Please read this policy carefully, and feel free to contact us at
firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions regarding its contents.
This website is operated on behalf of Shore Vascular & Vein Center by MD Connect, Inc. Its content has been reviewed and approved by representatives of
Shore Vascular & Vein Center, who assume all responsibility for the accuracy of information contained herein.
In connection with your use of our site, we ask for and may collect a variety of information from and about you in different ways. For example,
when you complete the contact form, we ask for and store your name, email address, phone #, other identifying contact data, and potentially
some limited medical symptom data. Some of this may be considered Protected Health Information (“PHI”) and covered by the Health Insurance
Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”). By using our site, including the contact form, you consent to the transmission of information
via MD Connect, Inc. and its technology providers to Shore Vascular & Vein Center.
We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google. Google utilizes the data collected to track and examine the use of this website,
to prepare reports on its activities and share them with us, our contractors, and other Google services. Google may use the data collected to
contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network. The personal data collected for these purposes is limited to cookie and usage
Our use of any information you provide is governed by a Business Associate Agreement between Shore Vascular & Vein Center and MD Connect, Inc. This agreement
provides for appropriate safeguards and protections outlined by HIPAA to insure the privacy and security of your personal health information. The
only use of this PHI is to pass it along to Shore Vascular & Vein Center for follow-up and contact, and to maintain archived copies at MD Connect for purposes of
measurement and back-up.
We may combine your personally-identifying information, and information about your preferences and activities, with those of all or a particular group
of our users to prepare collective profiles of our users and their activities. For example, we may track the number of our users who view certain pages
or use certain features or compile the volume of users visiting the site and using our services in a particular geographic region. Such information,
and other information we derive from individual users’ information, allows us to refine the website and related marketing and communications.
Aside from the two parties mentioned above, we will not disclose your personal information to anyone else, unless compelled by law: We may disclose
information to fulfill certain legal and regulatory requirements or if we believe, in good faith, that such disclosure is legally required or necessary
to protect others’ rights or to prevent harm.
At any time after you have logged on to our site, you may contact us at email@example.com to request access to information we have collected
regarding you or to notify us of changes to such information. If you request any such changes, we will contact you by email or fax to confirm those
changes. Once confirmed, any new item of information will replace the corresponding information previously provided.
Transmission of your personal information from your computer to ours is encrypted. We share this information with Shore Vascular & Vein Center. The mode of sharing is,
at their option, either through a secure portal or through an unencrypted email.
Please remember that you play a valuable part in security as well. After you have finished using our site, you should exit your browser so no unauthorized
persons can use our site. Remember that any information you voluntarily disclose on-line in any news or message postings, discussion groups or chat rooms
may be collected and used by others without your permission. Furthermore, if you provide any information to parties who operate websites that are linked
to or from our site, different rules may apply to their collection, use or disclosure of your personal information. We encourage you to review these
sites’ policies before revealing any sensitive or personal information.
Regardless of the precautions taken by you or by us, “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any
information you transmit to us, and you transmit such information at your own risk.
It may be necessary from time to time for us to modify this policy to reflect changes in the way we collect and use information or changes in privacy-related
laws, regulations, and industry standards. Accordingly, we reserve the right to change this policy at any time by posting the revised policy on this website.
